Serendipity means a fortunate accident, so the program is mostly about songs, artists, music or lyrics that intersect; songs with which the original artist is not immediately associated, and where covers are well worth a listen; songs that connect two performers, or two bands, even two eras.
Although musically “a child of the seventies”, I marvel at the number of performers from that era who are still around and still making great music. That too might be serendipity.
So Serendipity is about music that has not been “focus-grouped” to death. Just different enough to get your attention, but familiar enough that you recognise most of the tracks most of the time.
Community Radio might be the last corner of the media world that hasn’t been commercialised, sanitised and globalised. It plays the music you’d probably play if you had your own radio show, because all our volunteers come from the community we play to. We are you.
