Dizzy on Houndstooth rotation. Much excitement at Kingwell HQ, since tastemaker station Houndstooth Radio added Leanne Kingwell to regular rotation last week. The station’s creator, curator, owner and DJ, Kurt St. Thomas has certifiably platinum ears. St. Thomas gave Nirvana’s album “Nevermind” its world premiere by playing the album from start to finish over the WFNX FM airwaves, at 7pm on August 29, 1991, in Boston, MA. The album “Nevermind” went on to sell over 10 million copies in the US and 26 million copies worldwide.  Kurt has DJ-ed and programmed some of the hottest airwaves in the US, including the world famous KROQ in Los Angeles, CA. He is currently the Executive Music Producer for the legendary WFNX, and launched Houndstooth Radio, to showcase his personal picks for current and next new cool. He’s chosen “SLINGSHOT” from the “Choking On Halos” album, to be played on repeat alongside alternative heroes like the Pixies, Nine Inch Nails, Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MGMT, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Daft Punk, Jack White, Moby, Lana Del Rey, Gorillaz, Sleigh Bells and more… how fucking cool it is to be a peer in such company. Kurt may be “broadcasting to the world from one man’s garage”, but it’s one heck of a facility, with one heck of a playlist, and one heck of a renowned musical seer and prophet at the helm. The Houndstooth Radio playlist is cooler than outer space and live tweeted from @HTRPlaylist.

Radio spins and other wins.

By Airplay, Music, News, RadioNo Comments

Making “Sunshine”. College radio station KACV took the leap last week, adding “SUNSHINE” to regular rotation, proving worthy of their catch phrase “Amarillo College’s cutting edge”. Only four songs were added to regular rotation and the other three names on the list were Gerard Way (singer, My Chemical Romance), Broken Bells (Danger Mouse and James Mercer’s band) and the band James, whose excellent track “Laid” was one of the best songs of the nineties. Leanne admits to being a little bit excited about the band James, liking and favoriting her posts and tweets on the radio company she’s keeping. “SUNSHINE” is enjoying repeat plays from early supporters, including 101.1FM Riff 2 Detroit, also adding a few new stations to the growing list, such as KGNU in Boulder, Colorado. Houndstooth Radio, took “SLINGSHOT” for a spin, prompting us to google and happily discover an incredibly cool playlist and radio station. Created and curated by Kurt St. Thomas, I’m told it isn’t easy to catch his ear. Recommended listening. You’ll find Houndstooth Radio here: www.houndstoothradio.com It’s great to know there’s still decision makers in the music business, willing to take a chance and back their hunches based purely on merit of the music. Thank you to all of those people. The “Choking On Halos” video celebrated an exclusive World Premiere on PureGrainAudio.com before announcing the launch of Leanne’s “Other People’s Shoes” peace promotion. Centred on a peace wish embedded in the song and short film she made, the #THISisme #OtherPeoplesShoes campaign intends to focus attention on the value of empathy and goodwill. Timely thoughts for a world at war, fast approaching World Peace Day. Find out how to JOIN in, promote PEACE & WIN here: http://wp.me/p3XquD-5L PRIZES include: Autographed physical CDs, plus digital versions of the “Choking On Halos” album. Meanwhile back in Australia, heartfelt thanks goes to Georgie Fitzergerald (Huon FM), Nick Swainson (Radio Port Douglas) and Julie Reynolds (FIVEaa) for their continued unsolicited and 100% appreciated on-air support.     WEBSITE:  https://leannekingwell.com/ iTUNES: http://itunes.apple.com/album/id898805049 AMAZON: http://tinyurl.com/nlhb3yu
