James Dundon has launched a 24/7 online website playing mechanical music. He says, “It’s a project I’ve been working on for sometime, and last night I hit the button and put it live. At the moment it’s in ‘test transmission’ stages playing continuous music. It’s actual launch will be this Sunday 1st April at 9 am. Please can you help me spread the word. Share news about this to anyone you think might be interested. You can find out all about the station and tune in now.
“We are on Facebook and Twitter under ‘Mechanical Music Radio.’ Also you might be able to help me with some music. I’m looking for iconic instruments from around the world. If you have a CD you have released, or a personal recording you’re particularly proud of, please be in touch. You can post, wetransfer or dropbox the audio to be for broadcast. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.”
