We’ve been supporting our local primary school for a few years now with a “Jukebox Music quiz” based on the extensive library we’re building as we go along.
This year (we think our 5th, but not sure) was a great success raising over £600 which helps funds the First Access Violin programme at the school. Providing access to violins and lessons for all students that want to take part.
We can’t take all the credit though – the school PTA organises all the food and bar and makes it such a pleasure to be part of.
As many of you know I don’t celebrate Christmas thus I’m providing the alternative to Xmas jingles this festive season on CrowZone Radio.
For my Winter Solstice Special I introduced you to Pagan Pop from Karina Skye with ’13 Days of Solstice’; dirty dubstep from Wabbo with ‘Solstice’; a brand new unreleased rock track from Ravenscroft called ‘My Dearest One’ – I want to thank Ravenscroft and Mike for getting that to me.
There was a little metal gem from Christopher Lee called ‘The Little Drummer Boy’, yes that Christopher Lee!; a Winter Faerie Tale from Krampus Parade called ‘The Twilight of Winter Romance’ and a full on party track from Yggdrassil called ‘Yuletide’.
I hope you all have a wonderful Festive Season and don’t forget to join me next week for a Furielicious Pre Hogmanay Metal Special! As usual if you miss the show on Friday and the repeat on Sunday you can access the show on my Mixcloud page as soon as it’s up.
I had a Furielicious Birthday this year and put together a special show for all you Furian’s and Zoner’s. If you want to listen to my Birthday Mix go to https://www.mixcloud.com/Midnight_Furie/
No new tracks, just a selection of my favourite’s. To listen again check out my Mixcloud page on the link above. Thanks to everyone who sent cards and well wishes, you moved my soul.
It’s been a while since I’ve blogged and that’s because here at Midnight Mansion’s it’s been hectic. I have a few projects on the go, from a new website and Mixcloud site to preparing for my Birthday celebration next week.
For those of you who came close to guessing this weeks theme, Beth and Scott, there’s a little something in the post for you. For everyone else, the theme was Anti-Bullying as 17th November marked the end of Anti-Bullying week. If anyone you know is affected by this issue here is a useful contact;
On this weeks show I introduced you to Hardstyle from Markove ‘Fear’; and Metal from Sevendust ‘Enemy’. If you have any requests feel free to email email@example.com or tweet Midnight_Furie, or if you have music you’d like me to consider playing. I’m always looking for new music to play on my show.
Speaking of which, next week is my Birthday show; if you can guess my age online on the night I’ll send you a little present, only chance you’ll get lol. Catch you all next week for another Furielicious start to the weekend.
It’s been a busy week Zoner’s but before tonight’s show I thought I’d better re-cap last weeks offering.
The theme last week was more relaxed and I started to introduce a bit of spookiness as the season of haunting is upon us. Bands and artists new to CrowZone Radio were; Glitch Hop from Pegboard Nerds & Tristam’s ‘Razor Sharp’; Dubstep from Miles ‘Fiction is my Reality’; Rap and Bass with James Marvel & MC Mota’s ‘Way of the Warrior’; Hardstyle from Rebel of Noise and ‘Euphoria’; Rock with 3 Doors Down and ‘In The Dark’, and Aranda’s ‘We Are The Enemy’; Metal with Stitched Up Heart’s ‘Finally Free’ and To-Mera’s ‘Dreadful Angel’.
Big things are happening on The Midnight Hour this month and there will be something very special on 31st October so keep checking in. I’m looking forward to your logging on tonight and joining me on chatwing for another Furielicious start to the weekend!
Last weeks show was a little naughty, and a little saucy, with a dash of spice. With the unfortunate passing of Hugh Hefner it was time to celebrate a live well lived, hence the not so hidden theme of last weeks show. It’s nice every now and then to break from the mould and let one’s hair down, so to speak, and thus I included a couple of tracks you may never hear again on CrowZone Radio.
I introduced you to Glitch Hop with Mat tha Hat & Lauren Francis ‘Down the Rabbit Hole – Warp9 Remix’; Dubstep from Axel Boy ‘Be The One’; Hardstyle from Josh & Wesz ‘Autumn Green’; Metal with In This Moment ‘Whore’; and Skillet ‘Energy’.
It was a grand show and with any luck CZR will put it up on ‘replays’ so if you missed it you can listen again. Don’t forget there is a replay of my Friday show on Sunday at the same time, 9pm.
I’ve no idea what this weeks theme will be and I’m looking forward to you all logging on and chatting on Chatwing. Be kind to each other whatever you’re doing and catch you all on Friday for another Furielicious start to the weekend!
It’s here and it’s rocking! That’s right, my interview with Mike from Metalheads Forever magazine has landed and you can take a peek here;
Let Mike, Metalheads Forever and me, know what you think with a quick comment or tweet. Thank you!
Last week there was no special theme as such, just partying on, however we do have a few theme-filled weeks coming up. Starting with tomorrow and the Autumn Equinox. Before I get over excited here’s a re-cap of last week where I introduced you to the delicious Venus Ferrari and ‘Alpha Girl; Glitch Hop with Elysium’s ‘Gutter Butter’; Dubstep from Bar 9 and ‘Before the Storm’; the amazing Dancenstein and ‘Loud Music’; Hardstyle with Andy Svge & Hardstyle Pianist’s ‘Sunbeam’ followed by Ecstatic & Sogma’s ‘Warcry’; Rock from Smash into Pieces ‘Let Me Be Your Superhero’, Kaleo’s ‘Hot Blood’, and Hyperdose’s ‘Take Control’; ending with the Metal offerings from Kobra & the Lotus’ ‘You Don’t Know’, and Amaranthe ‘Maximise’. Dr Scythe made a special appearance with his latest single ‘Legions of the Numbed’, taking him up to 25 in his 100 tracks in 10 years project. Congratulations Dr Scythe!
Catch you all tomorrow for another Furielicious start to the week end with “60 minutes of bliss”!
