Radio History

A ZROQ story

How ZROQ radio started

How I got invited by 247ULTRA station

The great thing about running a weekly radio show is that I have direct contact now with A&R managers from all kinds of record labels around the world. They are sending me great records every week. And all I have to do is to make a selection of about 20 records that I can play every Saturday night.  Also it is a nice chance to promote a lot of new artists. They will see their name appear on the famous 1001tracks website , which is great for their career to be recognized as an artist. In 2 years time I already did over a 100 shows , and I expect much more shows to do in the coming time.  I see it as a nice extra , next to the regular studio work and live shows.

During the Amsterdam ADE in 2018

I got invited by 247ULTRA station , to do a radio show for about 30 minutes in a studio in Amsterdam centre. I saw it as an opportunity to play some of my new studio productions so I accepted the invitation. That day was pretty hectic with more than 100 party‚Äôs in Amsterdam all over the place. I was hanging out with more than 10 friends from several continents around the world . in the city and decided to bring all the friends to the radio live recording show. We had a lot of fun and it was like our own private little party. After the broadcast, the manager of the radio event came to me and asked me if I was interested to host my own weekly radio show.  All I had to do was to pre-record my show and upload it to send every weekend to be broadcasted live around the world for over 200.000 listeners worldwide. I Said I need a few days to tik about it , but would probably do it. I had to go home first and find out if I would be able to do this every week.  I had to find out a convenient way to keep doing this every week without any complications.  It took me less than 30 minutes to figure out that this would be no problem for me at at. So I called the next day to tell I accept the offer. 

Also it is a nice chance to promote a lot of new artists. 

It is a great way to keep myself updated with the newest artists and sounds. 

And most of all, it is a lot of fun to do !
