Hosted by your
dedicated globe-rocker in chief, Jean-Pierre Moya, ROCKOMONDO
is a radio-show broadcasted every thursday night from 9 to 11
p.m. on Radio
Primitive ( Reims and the Champagne area, France).
indie-oriented ( but not only ), mostly rock and pop ( although
eclectism is the rule: what we like, we play ! ), but the main
characteristic of ROCKOMONDO is that we play music from all over
the world excluding the U.K
and the U.S.A. Not that we don't dig American and English sounds
( we do ! There's even a special niche for them, the " English/
American pick of the day ", at the end of the show ) , but it's
no great use to do something other people already do, when, at
the same time, music scenes from other countries have yet to be
explored and brought to light. This is a much more exciting task
in our opinion, especially when so many great bands are popping
up every minute from all over the world.
As we like things
to be diverse and original, we confess having a soft spot for
people who sing in their mother tongue and try to do their own
thing. But there's no pre-established rule. Everything that makes
us thrill is allright: if it's good, it's good for ROCKOMONDO.
Apart from our
regular shows, we have launched a series of " Specials", each
one dedicated to a particular country. Our famous " Sweden Special"
is now broadcasted every year, on the last thursday of january.
Soon we'll add on a regular basis a " Denmark Special", a " Spain
special", a " Norway special", a " Belgium Special", a " Netherlands
Special" and a " Finland special... For a start...
We are also
open to artists who would like to come and visit us for interviews
and acoustic sessions. We already had a visit from Jonas Bjerre
( Mew, DK ), Laurent Vaissière ( Paloma, F ), Rick Treffers (
Mist, NL), Breezy Temple (F), Michael and Janneke Milo ( King
Me, NL) for a session + an interview, Stefan van den Berg ( Mummy's
A Tree, NL ) for a session, Lise Westzinthius (DK ) for an interview,
and more are yet to come. As often as possible we also try to
catch bands live and record the gigs, as we did with Superheroes
(DK), Aroah (E), Under Byen (DK), Minor Majority (N) or Kristofer
Aaström (S) to name but a few.
for the time it will be possible to listen to the show on line,
check our news, playlists and reviews, use our links to get in
touch with the artists and labels we're talking about. And send
a CD-R or cassette ( see " Contact") if you really want
to know how ROCKOMONDO sounds.
