Chicago Radio Stations Add Scott to Playlist - May 30, 2006

Two Chicago based internet radio stations are adding cuts from Noel Scott’s CDs to their play-lists. IMIXRADIO which plays a mix of Blues, Jazz, and Rock has added "Watermelon Man" (The Noel Scott Quartet CD), "Harlem Nocturne (Energized! CD), and "Wave" (Mosaic CD). COOLSWEETTUNES specializes in music that includes independent artists of various genres. "So Danco Samba" (TheNoel Scott Quartet CD) and "Take Five" (Energized! CD) are in the rotation. There is a lot of acoustic music here that is very listenable. You may link to these stations from Scott's Links on his website.

Noel says, “I’m thrilled to be included on these stations. The internet is, in many ways, the future of the music industry. Both of these Chicago stations are on the cutting edge. They provide a wonderful service to the public by including the work of independent artists. The selection of material is not solely based on record sales (the major selection criteria of corporate radio-Editor), but seems to rely on the merit of the performance and composition. As such, while there is not rejection of commercial work, there IS inclusion of work which is NOT yet commercially accepted. One has only to look at the Grateful Dead who had one of the biggest and most loyal fan bases ever to see the power of working outside the ‘industry’. (Editor’s Note: The Grateful Dead allowed fans to freely record concerts and to distribute their recordings without royalties to the band. Like today this was a time when record companies strictly controlled recordings and performance copyrights. Working outside the corporate channels led to a huge underground following that continues to this day. The band’s concerts brought them huge commercial success."Dead Heads" still collect the concert recordings)

These stations fill the void left by those which narrow-cast only one music style. In my live performances, I’ve seen an increase in people (especially under 40) who have a wide knowledge and appreciation of all types of music. Their needs will be met without having to continually flip from place to place.”

WAVEvand HARLEM NOCTURNE from the "Energized!" CD and PUTTIN' ON THE RITZ from the "Mosaic" CD are the first adds. Other selections are under consideration for future airplay.
