In an age when radio shows may be largely ignored, Dave Clarke celebrated his 500th White Noise Radio Show by returning to Dublin to record this special event for broadcast on RTE. Shows such as ASOT and ABGT along with Intercity are known around the world and broadcast weekly, bringing new music to fans one track at a time. White Noise is broadcast on 62 stations in 28 different countries, an achievement unto itself.
A message from The Baron of Techno himself:
“I have been doing radio for so many years on and off, I started on Brighton’s “Festival Radio” back in the 90’s and learnt a lot from there, I was asked to do a stint covering Annie Nightingale on BBC 1 for 3 months and then did my “Technology” show for four years at the very beginning of internet broadcasting (although it was also broadcast on FM) but this WN 500 has just crept up and made me realise that it has almost been ten years of broadcasting and that I have complete freedom to play music I believe in and then I take it in that is on over 80 stations worldwide. So I would like to thank the stations for believing in me over the years (including the VPRO) and RTE for always being there pushing forward the boundaries and broadcasting such an uncompromising show. I would also like to thank all the artists who send me the music and keep the true spirit alive in this commercial world.”
The special edition of White Noise will be broadcast in July so be on the lookout as I’m sure Dave will do something extra special for 500 episodes and counting.
