There's a whole world of savvy, aesthetically sophisticated listeners out there, but for me, music has always been primarily an emotional experience
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 11, 2008
BreakThru Radio (BTR), the World's Source for the Best Independent Music on the Internet, announces that it will air a new specialty show called "The Emo Show" from the newest member of the BTR team, DJ Plumbline. This new addition to the BTR lineup is designed to let listeners feel their emotions through music. "The Emo Show" is the latest installment in the station's successful series of specialty shows. This expressive new show can be found only at http://www.breakthruradio.com.
The goal of "The Emo Show" is to focus on the idea of emotional listening rather than to just simply spotlight all emo music. In the first edition, listeners will hear songs from Hot Hot Heat, Sebadoh, Yo Le Tengo, and Broken Social Scene. "The Emo Show" premieres on Saturday, January 12, and will continue to air on a weekly basis.
"There's a whole world of savvy, aesthetically sophisticated listeners out there, but for me, music has always been primarily an emotional experience," explains DJ Plumbline, who is a New York City-based writer and musician. "With this new show, I hope to share that, and to rediscover it a little bit myself."
With the addition of "The Emo Show," BreakThru Radio further fulfills its goal of offering listeners complete on-demand, free programming. Other BTR specialty shows include a folk show, a blues show, a heavy metal show, a fringe show, a dance music show and a hip-hop show.
"The Emo Show" will premiere on BTR tomorrow and will be available in the station's archive and program guide, along with all of BTR's previous specialty programs. Listeners can tune in to hear DJ Plumbline's exclusive new show by visiting http://www.breakthruradio.com.
