Musical Chrononauts: Back to the Prom

Today is the day of the Sec­ond Annu­al Pea­cock Proms, and I have decid­ed to try some­thing new for the Prom music!

I am call­ing it: “Musi­cal Chrononauts: Back to the Prom”

(thank you most kind­ly Mr. Drinkwa­ter for the very apro­pos name)

The Prom” is very much an Amer­i­can insti­tu­tion, asso­ci­at­ed with High School. It is often held as a cel­e­bra­tion to a spe­cif­ic grad­u­at­ing class. There­fore, most Amer­i­cans asso­ciate very spe­cif­ic music with the word “Prom”, usu­al­ly music from their Junior or Senior year of High School.

There­fore, I would like to make the Pea­cock Prom that I play today an homage to YOUR Proms and/or High School years — and I need your requests to make this hap­pen!

Please IM me, or email me at gabrielle.riel@gmail.com, with any year between 1950 and 2000, and I will cre­ate a 15 minute set dur­ing Pea­cock Prom #1 ded­i­cat­ed to the “Prom” music of that spe­cif­ic year. I will announce the year, and ded­i­cate it to you on air dur­ing the event.

Requests are first come, first served. If the requests out­strip the avail­able time of the “ear­ly” (Euro/UK) Prom, then I will do my best to work with Pre­sen­ter Mag­dale­na Kamenev, who is pro­vid­ing the music for the “late” (North Amer­i­can) Prom. I will get as many as requests as pos­si­ble to her, but please note that I will be at the mer­cy of uploads speeds and band­width.

Please help me take you all “Back to the Prom”!
