As an experiment, I decided to use Pandora as my only source of music for a while, just to see what happens. One of the best stations I made was built around the British band, Broadcast. They’re one band that I feel never got their due props. Their singer, the otherworldly Trish Keenan, died of pneumonia earlier this year. I’ve been a fan for a decade, but I’ve been listening to them a lot lately because of my Pandora station and, for some reason, today I was saddened by the thought that there will never be another Broadcast record.
Lots of people make fan videos for songs they like, but as I was searching for some Broadcast videos to share, I discovered tons of fan-made videos for songs spanning their discography. Better yet, many of them were quite good. This made me smile. It’s fitting. Broadcast was that kind of band– a band that fans would spend time making videos for and a band that would embrace the fact that it had the kind of fans who would do such things.
