INNOVATIVE RADIO – NOT AN OXYMORON
IT’S TIME TO MEET THE BEST RADIO YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD – CHICAGO-BASED, GLOBALLY ENJOYED PODCAST
 
When was the last time you heard a truly eclectic mix of artists you know and love alongside fantastic new music?  Chances are, if you’re listening to terrestrial or satellite radio, you’re not getting the true music fan’s well executed cherry picked mix that isn’t the same old tunes you’ve heard for years. 
 
Meet Perry Bax and The Best Radio You Have Never Heard (http://www.bestradiopodcast.com).  Bax has been podcasting his show on the web since 2005 from his home base in Chicago.  A true music aficionado, the colorful Bax has played a host of roles in the music industry, ranging from concert promoter in his teens, to university concert booker,  to production manager, to local and touring sound engineer to highly successful nightclub DJ.    Today Bax caters to a global audience via his wonderfully diverse bi-weekly podcast The Best Radio You Have Never Heard.  The show is licensed by ASCAP, BMI and SESAC.  The twice monthly program is available for free with a subscription in the iTunes or Zune stores, or any RSS reader, or without a subscription by hitting the play button on the web page, iTunes, Zune store or on the Facebook page. 
 
Perry was an early advocate of podcasting, launching his unique mix of rock-based music in 2004, the early years of MP3 players.  It seemed there was a void in the musical universe, which wasn’t catering to the needs of music fans that were serious about music both new and classic.  Seeking to fill this gap, Perry launched The Best Radio You Have Never Heard podcast in 2005 as a format without borders or limitations and a unique production style that is rivaled by none.  His show now boasts loyal listeners around the world.
With traditional radio becoming more and more regimented, The Best Radio You Have Never Heard has become a niche where listeners can relive the days of early 70’s freeform FM mixed with today’s contemporary artists, and tracks by their favorite artists that have never graced the terrestrial airwaves.  With more music than time in his bi-monthly show,  Perry estimates he hasn’t repeated more than 10-15 tracks since the show went live on the World Wide Web.
 
The show was ranked #7 in the Digital Podcast Top 100 Podcasts for 2005 and the #2 Classic Rock Podcast from About.com in 2007 and 2010.
 
Music without borders for a global audience…this is truly The Best Radio You Have Never Heard.
