Headline

5/1 Happy May day. Very little action in the top 25. Disturbed expand their lead over rising Meghan Trainor. Gwen Stefani gains points and rebounds to #3. No new entries in the top 10 and the only new arrival to the top 25 is Nick Jonas f/ Tove Lo at #24. Outside the top 25 Pink makes a nice jump to #36, similar pattern as Tegan & Sara last week. The highest first week entry is Garbage at #246 with Empty. Pink & Garbage enjoy this week’s top 2 adds at 13 and 12 respectively. Hybrid charts are posted. Rhythmic Adult sees the most action at the top, while Disturbed makes a big leap to #1 on the Eclectic chart. Monthly genre charts will be up soon.

4/28 Fun new discovery from Australian newcomer Brendan Maclean. So 80’s new wave with a great, hugely fun lyrics and video.

4/23 This is a BIG week at Beyond Radio. First after 6 months at the top of the BR200 Adele is dethroned by a remake of a 50 year old song. And a pretty powerful remake at that. Congrats to Disturbed for reaching the summit with “The Sound Of Silence”. The fact that song has not been promoted to HotAC yet is puzzling. I know that “rock” is a bad word at pop radio in recent years but the evidence is clear that this song deserves THAT exposure. IMO this is the reason Beyond Radio and the personal chart universe is where to discover new music.

Second I have started to post my own videos in addition to the weekly new music pick playlists that I have been posting to YouTube. It was time to put a personality behind the work here. I truly love what I do on this site and I want the audience to get to know me, my journey and my passion for discovering my next favorite song.

Third I have signed off on the website makeover that I have wanted to do for many years. It is very exciting to know that in the next couple of months so much is going to change here in a positive way.  For those of you who have frequented this site over the years, I thank you wholeheartedly. None of the core will change but more will be added to enhance the information already presented here.

4/16 Disturbed makes a nice move from 9-3 while the original song enters Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart at #6.

7 months after debuting at #288 and spending the last 12 weeks in the top 25, DNCE hits the top 10.

With 13 adds and big debuts, Tegan and Sara splash onto the chart at #99 with their latest single "Boyfriend".

4/10 Check out this blog from independent artist Steve Deaton, pictured with his band to the right, You, The Music Fan, are the Reason the Digital Age Doesn’t Suck.. Here is my response after reading it.

 

"Dust of the Seventies" is very Poco, whom I saw at an outdoor venue in NYC my senior year of high school. My love of music probably started with hearing 'Let's Hang On" blasting out of my friend Raymond's sister's window when I was five but kicked into gear with the Partridge Family! Having those songs on my TV every week was amazing. Then Elton John changed my world. I started to have this unending need to hear more music.

When I first heard American Top 40 I knew there was even more out there beyond the somewhat stale NY radio I was listening to. I started my own personal top 40 and also started to flip through the radio dials searching for new music and tabulating the weekly results into my own airplay charts. Check out my website www.beyondradio.com to see the oldest personal chart I still have in my possession. You can listen on Spotify as well.

Two of the biggest songs on the airplay chart in high school were "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Come Sail Away". One of my most vivd memories was my freshman year, going to a record store with my friend Patrick and buying Queen's "A Night At The Opera". I loved "Bohemian Rhapsody" but going back to his house and listening to the album was a magical experience. Starting with "Death On Two Legs" (amazing!) and journeying through the unbelievably diverse collection of songs was truly a pivotal moment.

I have thousands of lp's and 45's, unfortunately now in my basement with nowhere to display them. But fortunately, for good or bad, this digital age allows for easy access to almost too much new and old to discover. I am so blessed to have stayed with my music discovery passion all of my life and to share it with those interested through my website.

Thanks Steve for sharing your story and I'll be sure to share it to all who want ot see it. Speaking of pivotal moments, the scope of my website is expanding and going from hobby to career so I am glad you are on board for the ride. It is my intent to help music fans discover new music with ease and artists to reach a larger audience.

History&Flashbacks

The impetus to Beyond Radio was actually a party I had in 1984 that will see its 32nd incarnation was the second Saturday in July. See this year’s top 100 below.

 

The original party revolved around a music countdown of the best songs of 1983 (a great music year IMO) based on the responses of friends who submitted their 50 favorite songs of the year. I wanted an overview of the year that had no musical boundaries. The Billboard top 100 of the year always featured the biggest pop songs but there was no chart that encompassed all genres.

 

Back in the 80’s Boston had a great radio scene. WFNX, WBCN were on the cutting edge of the new wave/alternative scene while KISS 108 with program director Sunny Joe White was unlike any top 40 station in the country. It was the perfect town for my music discovery needs and I wanted a party to reflect the diversity of the airwaves. Of course it was also about discovering new music through other people’s responses, beyond the airplay hits.

 

The party counted down the top 125 and the first party #1 was Modern Love by David Bowie (last year’s #1 was Bastille’s Pompeii). The rest of the top 10 is as follows

2 THE FIXX, One Things Leads to Another

3 IRENE CARA, Flashdance

4 BILLY IDOL, White Wedding

5 MICHAEL JACKSON, Beat It

6 DAVID BOWIE, China Girl

7 U2, New Year’s Day

8 TALKING HEADS, Burning Down The House

9 ELVIS COSTELLO, Everyday I Write The Book

10 THE CLASH, Rock The Casbah

 

On the party countdown #1, 2, 4, 7, 8 and 9 did not make the Billboard Top 100 of the year. Non radio fare also made the party countdown. At #50 there was Bonnie Tyler’s remake of “Have You Seen The Rain”.  Songs like Peter Godwin’s “Images of Heaven” at #61 and local guy Robert Ellis Orrall’s “I Couldn’t  Say No” at #79 showed the influence of Boston radio. Club music was represented by songs like S.O.S. Band’s “Just Be Good to Me” at #21, “It’s Raining Men” at #84, “So Many Men, So Little Time” at #104 and the first single by Wham, “Wham Rap (Enjoy What You Do)” at #122. This was a top 10 single in the UK and did not chart in the US.

 

The mix of music was really a great microcosm of the state of music in 1983, a huge year for new wave, Michael Jackson, U2 and Hall & Oates. U2 have become the kings of the party, amassing 3 #1’s, “Bad” in 1985 ( a true out of left field #1), “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” in 1987 and “One” in 1992. In addition 3 #2’s “Mysterious Ways in 1992, “Pride (In The Name of Love)” in 1984 and “With Or Without You” in 1987.

3/31 I started my personal chart back in the fall of 1974 after I first heard American Top 40. It was the Oct. 19 show and 2 things stood out. “Beach Baby” dropped from #4 to #26 and I heard “Overnight Sensation” by The Raspberries for the first time. It was like I found the Holy Grail.  That song went on to be my #4 of the year behind two Elton John’s, “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me” (for a time my #1 of all time) and “The Bitch Is Back” #3, The Commodores “Machine Gun” #2 and ahead of Abba’s “Waterloo” This is a real video from 1974. The outfits were rather glam, especially the Kiss boots.

 

I can’t remember if I started my chart right away but I do have most of my old charts in files. The earliest one I still have is from June 28, 1975. You’ll see on the list that I charted “Machine Gun” and the Partridge Family’s “You Are Always On My Mind” which were 1 year and 4 years old respectively, thus starting my trend to not follow the radio when creating my personal chart. You can listen to the chart of Spotify.
