French disco-house maverick Fred Falke (pictured) keeps the spirit of broadcast radio alive with Radio Days, which features voiceovers from veteran LA radio personality “Shotgun” Tom Kelly.
Kelly is known for his almost 20-year stint with the famous Los Angeles station K-Earth 101, where he still continues with the network as their ambassador. Though hailing from France, the iconic nature of Kelly’s mark in LA broadcast history is not lost on Falke. Recordings of Kelly’s voice made specifically for the track are placed throughout the guitar riffs and piano chords to make it feel like you should be lacing up skates to head to the nearest roller disco. It’s disco nostalgia at its finest, and serves as the perfect canvas to showcase Falke’s skill with smooth bass guitar rhythms.
Radio Days arrives ahead of Falke’s Alpha EP, which is scheduled for release Dec. 4 on Pantheon Musique. Head to his SoundCloud for more tunes here.
