DJ Profile
alternative music online from Jangle Radio ~ Power Pop! on Live365 Internet Radio
DJ: Billy G.
Location: Kilgore, TX

Im a former radio DJ with over 17 years of on-air experience with a huge CD, LP, and 45 collection. I started collecting records when I was 4 and havent stopped buying music yet.

I started my first Live365 station "Jangle Radio" in December 1999 and have had a lot of fun programming my own radio stations without the nonsense, compromises and restrictions from penny pinching station owners and corportions, bossy program directors who know it all, overrated-overpaid radio consultants, and younger (naive) DJ's who think MTV invented Rock and Roll. (Yeah, I have been through everything that can go right and wrong in this business!)

I sincerely hope you have fun listening to my stations. Feel free to drop me a line for requests , dontations to pay the bills and other information!

Favorite Artists

The Beatles
What can you say about this band?They didnt invent "Power Pop" but it wouldn't exist without them.

Beach Boys
I love everything about their 60's and 70's classics, even the surfing, cars and girls songs. Pet Sounds is one of the greatest albums of all time!

The Who
Pete Townsned coined the phrase "Power Pop" to describe his bands music in the 60's. I think it fits perfectlly for songs like "The Kids are All Right".

The Byrds
Put the 12-string Jangle in Rock music. Brilliant song writers, especally Gene Clark.

The Kinks
I still can't decide if I like the early "You Really Got Me" Kinks or the later "Village Green" era Kinks better. Ray Davies wrote so many fantastic songs.

Favorite Albums

Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
Brian Wilson's classic Masterpiece! Unlike Sgt. Peppers this CD sounds timeless and not a 60's relic. PS: Get the box set!

Beatles - Revolver
Every Beatles album is a classic IMO, but this album marked a huge turning point for the group and pop music in general.

The Who - Sell Out
One of my first experiances listening to FM radio as a kid was listening to a "free-form" station that played the whole first side. Great cover and concept!

Zombies - Odessy & Oracle
A beautiful album from a very underrated and overlooked band.

Jellyfish - Spilt Milk
If I had to pick a couple CD's from the 1990's that will last forever and become "Pop Classics" it's this amazing CD along with Matthew Sweet's "Girlfriend, The Posies "Dear 23" and Cotton Mathers "Kontiki".
