Thanks to the following indie record labels for sending us promo CDs and MP3s: Amathus Music, Cordless Recordings, Section 44, and Woobie Bear Music.
Thanks to the following websites for providing free music downloads (which helped us to be able to keep our New Music Showcase going!): adifferentdrum.com (providing links to free synthpop MP3s at amazon.com), airplaydirect.com, amazon.com, download.com, garageband.com, iTunes (free songs of the week), and myspace.com.
A very special thank you to EuroVision for donating a CD as one of the prizes for the only contest AeschTunes ever held (back in December 2004).
A thank you to the underground synthpop scene, for making the music that YOU want to make, rather than the kind of music the suits at the major labels would want you to make.
A very special thank you to Todd Durrant and A Different Drum, for helping to foster the underground synthpop scene. Between the online store and the label, you have done so much to help keep this music alive. Todd, it’s always a pleasure doing business with you when we buy CDs through A Different Drum’s online store. Over the nearly four years AeschTunes had been on the air, we played quite a bit of material from the A Different Drum label. 🙂
Another very special thank you to Section 44, for believing in us and sending us promo discs from the label. We also appreciate being allowed to promote AeschTunes on the Section 44 forums — hopefully, we weren’t too obnoxious!
Another special thank you to Agent D (from Storybox). Thank you for all your support of AeschTunes!
And a special thank you to C89.5 FM (KNHC), which broadcasts out of Nathan Hale High School in Seattle, Washington. Your influence on our musical tastes over the course of AeschTunes is evident by looking at our charts. While the influence may not have been as strong at the end as it was when the chart first started, there’s still a bit that we were first exposed to through C89.5 (Danielle Bollinger, Scissor Sisters, Nemesis, Plumb, Da Buzz, Cascada, Matt Darey, and Lucas Prata, just to name a few).
And, last but not least, a BIG thank you to anyone who has ever listened to the AeschTunes internet radio station during its existence. Even if you only listened for five seconds and didn’t like what you heard, we still appreciate the fact that you were interested enough to at least check us out.
I’m sure I’ve forgotten some people in all of this, and if I did, I apologize. Even if you were overlooked, please know that we do appreciate you. 🙂
