Possible radio show on Preston FM???

2013-10-09 10:02:30 by Troisnyx

NOTE: I AM STILL IN DIRE STRAITS. I thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers, and I ask you to keep them coming. This post is an update on what MIGHT happen, if things go smoothly. Until then, I have still got limited internet and things look bleak. But the best thing is to chip away at it, no?

I seem to be flitting from one community radio station to another -- from Radio Verulam, down when I was still in Hertfordshire, to Preston FM, up here. Just the thought of working at a radio station still delights me.

Just a few days ago I stopped over at Preston FM, and I was allowed to see how things work. Mics, mixing desks, radio player thingymabobbers, Spotify, the list goes on and on. A friend of mine has a radio show there: those of you who live in Preston or the surrounding areas might be aware of a show titled 'The Weekend Ends Here'.

After a while I shared my works -- Terre des Hommes Libres, Sleep Wrapped in Love and the instrumental stuff on NG.

He took a liking to it and suggested I come up with a fortnightly radio show over at Preston FM!

Now whether I do this, or not, depends on what the next few days hold for me. As I said earlier, things look fairly bleak. But I don't know what doors this may open. This has to be pursued on the side, along with a day job. At least, this is what I see......................

Well, there's that. I'll get back to you when I hear new stuff.

Thanks to all of you who have stuck around with me thus far.

Trying new things is always good. Working at a radio station sounds like something new for you.

Troisnyx responds:

It is, but it's right up my street because during my first two years in university I was involved in Students' Union Media (not the radio side, but I was a vlogger). Sometimes it can be a joy doing things like these! ^_^

This sounds interesting and would be a great way for you to release the 'Troisnyx' sound, were you to pursue it. I can imagine your 'Hey everyone, Troisnyx here!' catchphrase on such a show.
I see Terre Des Hommes Libres mentioned once again. Didn't I tell you that would carry you far? :D
Thank you for replying to my PM and may God keep you.

Troisnyx responds:

TDHL has been the defining track thus far -- some tend to prefer Sleep Wrapped in Love (or rather my cover of it, since the original was done by HalcyonicFalconX), but otherwise the slant goes towards TDHL. I haven't had a similarly driving track in my finished works other than this, just yet.

I pray God lead me through this -- I can't say what this might bring or what current circumstances are leading me to, but hopefully Preston will be set on fire pretty soon! x

And what music would you use for the radio show? :3

Troisnyx responds:

I would assume lesser heard tracks, perhaps even J-Pop in some cases, but I imagine the best thing to do is source it from where they themselves put it up. Preston FM does tend to use Spotify for sources, so there's that. And occasionally, I'll throw my works in.

ALTERNATIVELY: depending on what response I get from a few NG people, it could be a feature for them. But really, that's..... pushing it. >_> I probably ought to go for Idea 1.

Cool news.

Best of luck Troisnyx! May God guide you in your discernment.

Troisnyx responds:

Thanks <3 I pray He do the same for me. Media can be a tricky thing half the time......

Hang in there, hope all goes well for you :)

Troisnyx responds:

I will do. Also, Jay, over the next few days, expect a PM from me -- I've got some things I ought to let you know about.

That sounds fantastic! Hope things will get better for you.

Great news! Congrats!

Troisnyx responds:

Cheers -- though it is what *might* happen... x

It's very good if you can find some Work — most anything, really — in what you love, especially if it might lead you away from the less-agreeable Day-Job you may have to find. I hope all goes well with the Border Office — I know there is Justice in the Claim, or else you would not have made it. I find myself unfortunately limited in what I am able to do know, but I believe that there is an old Proverb or somesuch which tells us that the Night is darkest just before Dawn. I hope it is true in your Case.

Don't hesitate to write Messages now and again; though there isn't much I can do, I still can, I hope, give you Encouragement every now and again.

Troisnyx responds:

Speaking of which, I ought to write you a message over on NG right away. There's something I believe you ought to know. x

Praying for you, friend. Hang in there. Pax.

Troisnyx responds:

Thank you so much! :'( I'll need those prayers coming. There's A LOT for me to contend with.

Pax tecum <3
