Aural Fix Top 20 of 2011 Show

2011-12-28 :: transmission@auralfix.com (Michael Ferrari)

AURAL FIX Edition of the ROCK SHOW
Top 20 Songs of 2011 from the Long Island Music Scene


ok, end of the year means Top Blah, Blah, Blah lists and Aural Fix is not immune to them! After many beers (Mike) and deep meaningful thought (The J?!), and in no way influenced by politics or payola (Mike), we have come up with our Top 20 Songs of 2011 from the Long Island Music Scene. It is by no means definitive, as there was actually a Top 50 List, but we only have a 2 hour show and only 20 songs actually fit in that allotted amount of time. Especially when you factor in the format breaks and The J's mic hogging endless rambles, we did what we can with it. If you are displeased with not making the list, complain to The J. I'll try to get the 30 of 50 Top Songs out this weekend in a separate podcast, but I drink alot and tend to get distracted...
- Mike

ps - some classic moments to listen for in podcast: PUI intro, dead air brought to you by M&J ... and more silliness

AFT presents Push Play at WCWP

2008-06-23 :: transmission@auralfix.com (Michael Ferrari)

Push Play at WCWP

By Mike Ferrari



Okay, long time AF readers are like, “C’mon Mike, a boy band in Aural Fix?!” To this I say – when your band came to WCWP, did you have 20 screaming teens and tweens holding signs with your name on it? I didn’t think so!

In that long standing tradition of good looking boys, sugary pop music and hype galore, Push Play has gone where boy bands like N Sync and New Kids On The Block et al have all gone before... straight to teenage girls hearts.

While Push Play certainly does all this, they do go beyond simple crass commercialism, and forgettable little ditties. The band donates a portion of all their proceeds to various local charities.

Featuring a fab four of local Long Island teens; CJ on Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Keyboard, Nick on Bass and Derek on Drums they pump out songs like “Away” which is pure pop confection, but it is sweet and and it's hard to resist the hook. Sometimes the vocals get a little over processed like on “Starlight Addiction” but I guess no different than most pop artists you’re hearing on your FM dial right now.

The band came down to the MyWCWP.com radio station to do an in-studio interview and acoustic performance on the Top 40 Format Total Access Show with host Nick Parker. About 20 people showed up to the station, many holding signs with messages to Push Play. At one point the station let the fans into the studio with the band, and some like Morgan Manganello of Holbrook, got to ask the band a question on air.

So you local musicians are seething in your basement or garage demanding to know why it isn’t you on the cover, or you in the pull out centerfold poster. I’ll explain it as best I can... because you’re not a cute teenage boy. You haven’t dropped the cash on the PR machine to crank out fluffy hype about all the things you do. You haven’t dressed up and looked like a rock star or care about your image. You haven’t wrote a sugary pop song that sticks in the heads or tugs at the hearts of teenage girls. To put it simply – you haven’t done what Push Play has done.

The boys in Push Play with the support of “band mom” Sue Baran have done all these things. As superficial as it may seem to you, this is the way the music industry today works. The key here is to find some things to incorporate into your music business plan from their play book.

However Push Play hasn’t been all hype, having sold out Irving Plaza and School of Rock earlier this year, and recently signing with Creative Artists Agency. The band has made themselves known at Nokia Theatre in Times Square and ZooTopia all through good old fashioned grass roots, word of mouth and incessant MySpace and online social networking. Hype will only carry an artist or band so far, you still need to sell tickets and fill seats! Push Play has done this and more, and they’re just getting started.

RadioJ - Premiere Show!

2007-07-15 :: transmission@auralfix.com (Michael Ferrari)

RadioJ picks up where Radioxposed (formerly on RadioX FM) left off, helping the local/indi unsigned music from all over. Playing music from all of the bands that are really looking to go to the next level.

The show will be 2 hrs long. Every now and then guests including bands, local writers, promoters and anyone who is passionate about the scene. Radio J Radio for the scene lives and breathes new music, and will continue, by discussing articles from aural fix every now and then, as well as having a concert calendar.

RadioJ will have a band of the month highlighting a particular band each month, that is involved in the local/unsigned/indie scene. I'm hoping this show will help bring the scene back to where it should be and hopefully help to make it better!

This is Hour 2!
