I bet you don’t hear that too often, but it’s true. I get paid to listen to music and talk on the air to the best listeners on the planet! Part of my job is deciding on what songs get played on KUIC. Sometimes it is pretty easy to choose and sometimes it is very hard. Right now there are some great new songs on the air that I wanted to let you know about.
The first is “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake. The first time I heard the song, I knew that this would be that special “summer” song that becomes huge (remember “Smooth” by Carlos Santana and Rob Thomas?). This is from the soundtrack to the animated movie “Trolls” which comes out in November.
The next song is another one from a movie, “Just Like Fire” by Pink which is from the movie “Alice Through The Looking Glass”. The movie bombed but the song is doing great!
The final song is “7 Years” by Lukas Graham, a Danish soul-pop band. Frontman Lukas Graham Forchhammer described “7 Years” as a song about his life so far and what he hopes to achieve in the future.
Those are just some of the new music you are hearing on the air right now. I look forward to keeping you updated on the music we play. Please feel free to email me any comments you have about our music.
