It's been a while since we've heard some really good stuff from Panic At The Disco. But they're back now, sans exclamation mark, with an awesome tune called "New Perspective". It will be avaliable on their upcoming album called "Panic Panic!".
I heard this on Sirius / XM's Alt Nation and fell in love with this song when I first heard it. This song was iTunes' single of the week for the week of July 14th 2009. The album "Ocean Eyes" is avaliable now and this is the latest signle from the album.
The All-American Rejects are back with a follow up to their hit "Gives You Hell". Again from their latest album "When The World Comes Down", "I Wanna" is one of my favourite songs at the moment ad it's been stuck in my head all day.
After much thinking about the future of Three Radio, it looks like we're not going to be doing any more live shows. However we are not going for good. We are considering making Three Radio into a podcast. That is, instead of listening to the show live, we make the show and you download it from the website and listen whenever you like, wherever you like.
We are currently producing our first show and it should be available to download by next week. Based on the response to this show, we will decide to continue making shows like that or not.
The new shows will be 1 hour long and still contain brand new music, competitions, requests, features and presents. To keep each show original, we will be having more special features each show, starting with the first part of our A-Z of music in the first show.
We will still be playing your requests, all you have to do is let us know what you want played from the request a song page.
We hope that you'll listen to our first podcast and let us know what you think. Follow us on facebook to find out when the show becomes available to download.
Tune in to the Ant and Lex show this Friday at 9PM (UK Time) where we'll have a comptition for you to win 1kg of Cadbury Mini Eggs. To win, you have to guess how many Mini Eggs fit into a Three Radio mug. The person who guesses closest wins!
Conditions And Junk:
Entries are only allowed by phone on 07754408883 or Skype at threeradio. You can tell us your guess by another means but you will not be eligable to win. If two or more people guess the same amount, each person must say why they want the Mini Eggs and we'll chose the winner based on who has the best (funniest) reason. The winner must collect the eggs or pay for shipping. You are not eligable to win if you've won a prize in a Three Radio competition in the last six months. The weight (1kg) is approximate, the winner will receive 300 mini eggs.
The competition opens when first announced live on Three Radio on June 19th.
Good luck everyone.
Rock group Sugar Ray is gearing up to release their new album Music For Cougars on July 21st. I heard this song whilst listening through the new tracks for June 2009 an this one stood out as a nice summery song (although the message it sends itsn't that great, just enjoy the tune).
Below you can listen their first single from the new sew album; "Boardwalk".
It looks like Carolina Liar are about to make it here in the UK. Radio 1 is currently playing "Show Me What I'm Looking For" and claiming it's their debut single. They are of course sucking at music as always. Carolina Liar's first single - "I'm Not Over" was released on May 19th 2008 in America and we've been playing it on Three Radio since then. For this reason, "I'm Not Over" is my song of the week, so that this great song isn't overlooked. Don't get me wrong, "Show Me What I'm Looking For" is a great song, but be prepared for people blasting it out of their phones and ruining it like what happens to every great song that the UK charts get a hold of.
This is the second song to be released from Phoenix's forthcoming album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, which is still a mystery - no artwork or track listing has been released yet. The album is set to be released worldwide on May 25th and in the US on May 26th.
Until then here's 1901 by Phoenix...
As a non-Russian speaker, information about T9 is pretty sketchy. Last.fm thought it was a Chinese rock group, and Google thought I was interested in predictive texting. Basically they are a Hip Hop group from Russia, and my favourite of their songs (which is my Song of the Week for this week), is Ода нашей любви (Oda Nashei Lyubvi), which made it onto the soundtrack for the video game Grand Theft Auto: 4. Its featured on the Russian music station within the game called Vladivostok FM, and despite not even getting recognition on the Wikipedia page for the GTAIV soundtrack, is one of my favourite tracks from the game.
If you are in the UK or US, you can listen to the song using Last.fm by clicking here
Starting soon on Three Radio, in a 25 part feature we're going to be taking you through the best artists in the alphabet - from Augustana to Zebrahead (and some 3 Doors Down as well). Each week we'll play three songs from artists starting with that weeks letter, including our favourite bands, the most requested bands and the best new undiscovered band we think you'll like.
Wild Light formed in New Hampshire in 2005 after meeting in high school and made their name playing the clubs of Boston. Band member Timothy Kyle was previously a member of Arcade Fire, performing on their early EP. In late 2007 they supported the band on their European tour.
Three Radio's had a pretty good comeback week. This week saw the return of The DHA Show and the temporary return of the Ant and Lex show.
We had another mug giveaway competition, which was won on The DHA Show on Wenesday by Ben... again.
The DHA Show should be back weekly at 8:30PM. The next Ant and Lex show will be on Sunday April 26th at 9PM
The site's had some more improvements.
You can now sign up to be notified by e-mail when a live show is about to start on Three Radio.
The listen again player has had a redesign.
You can now make requests when we're off air so we can play them for you during a show.
Improved search feature on the request a song page.
More developments to come...
If you're paying attention you'll see that the ThreeRadio.net website has had a change round. We've reorganised thing to hopefully make it easier to find and listen to shows and find out information about Three Radio.
For those of you that are interested the site also now uses tableless CSS and is valid XHTML.
You know you want one, it's awesome - you can drink from it and stuff. To win all you have to do is call in during a Three Radio show (on 07754408883) and tell us why you think you should win. The person with the best reason wins, simple.
We're also going to be coming up with new competitions so you'll have more chances to win.
This is the mug: http://www.cafepress.com/threeradio.201636372
So get phoning people
So picture this, you think to yourself "oh man, the DHA show is about to start, but I just got this new 360 game I want to check out". No longer a problem - now you can listen to Three Radio on your Xbox 360, from the dashboard or in-game. All it needs is a program installed on your computer and you're good to go. The only drawback is that your computer needs to be on when you want to listen.
Obviously it works with other internet radio stations as well, but this tutorial gives you the details for the best one :)
The program you need is called TVersity and is completely free. Read on for the quick tutorial on setting it up.
As heard on Three Radio on May 10th 2008 The 50 minute dubstep mix is now available to download.
The mix is split into two. First mix being heavy and the second being a slight genre mismatch mix with more dubstep.
The Three Radio Replay pages are now linked with the forum. This means you can now discuss the shows with us and other users - what did you like about it? what could be better next time? You can also give each show a rating.
As you can see, there are a number of changes happening to the Three Radio website at the moment. We're hoping to make the site more interactive to get the listeners more involved, provide you with more information and make your listening experience more fun.
The DHA Show will be just like SFM but hosted by DHA! DHA will be hosting his own show on Wednesday evenings and more often if demanded, which is VERY likely. The show will contain Rock, Alternative, D&B, Electronica and Metal. Requests and call-in's will be taken but the show will be mainly run by DHA himself.
You can now text in to request your songs, straight from your phone.
firstname.lastname@example.org artist - title
Where artist is the artist and title is the title of the song (you might want to check that we've got the song first though!).
For example: email@example.com dashboard confessional - hands down
Then send it to:
07766404142 (Note that that's not the usual number for calling in or sending texts)
It only costs your standard rate for sending a message.
It's still pretty experimental at the moment, we don't know how it handles songs with apostrophes and other symbols in the title. But give it a go and give us your feedback.
I came across this little application that can be run on any phones that use the Nokia S60 platform. It allows you to listen to Shoutcast streams on your phone wherever you are.
Alex has a Nokia N70 so I decided to test it out...
Update (9/3/07): After looking into it a little bit I found out that the reason it didn't work was because O2 uses a proxy for you to connect to the internet. So I popped a Virgin Mobile sim card in there and it worked like a charm. Read the full story for pics.
If you're wondering what's playing on Three Radio right now, it's now easier than ever. Introducing... this little thing I found.
It now shows the album, album art and a link to buy the album, enjoy.
(It works on the majority of songs but there might be a few without album information).

After a whole year off air, SFM has decided to try and broadcast once again under the name of 3Radio. Presented by Sam and Chris, SFM has proved to be a real hit with the fans. But now we've decided to build a studio.
After the end of SFM in early 2006 due to computer failure, The crew and I tried to get SFM back on the road. However the computer was beyond repair and funds were low, and due to the need for two computers (one for streaming and the other for source), SFM ceased to be. A year on and I've has decided to attempt making a studio that can not only be used for broadcasting, but also used as a music studio for up and coming stars. A rough plan has been drawn up, and the conversion will include a new homebuilt computer, as well as Behringer MS-16 Monitor speakers, a Behringer UB1832FX Studio Mixer, Shure Microphones and flat panel monitors. Check back soon for more development.
