Dance Radio Post is dedicated to anyone who loves music in general and dance music in particular. EDM is in our DNA. We always present information with our audience in mind. And we try to make sense of it all with a little bit of historical perspective—from dance music’s 1960s roots to its heyday in the 1970s and a resurgence in the 21st century.
After writing about dance music for 10 years—we first published a Web page on a local radio station in October 2002—we decided it was time to put all the related pages under our own address. If the world ended in 2012, we figured we’d go out with our own domain name. So our URL may be different, but it’s the same great content our loyal fans have come to know and love. If Web content is king, we must be royalty by now.
If you continue to visit our old address at blogspot.com, you’ll see a change of address notice. We recommend that you point your browser to danceradiopost.com from now on. For your information, our Facebook address remains the same.
Just because we’ve finally launched our own site, it doesn’t mean we’ve changed our editorial standards. We have no desire to be the next Yahoo (no thanks) or Rupert Murdoch (hell no); we just want to continue to muse on subjects we care about. Indeed, our company remains an independent publisher. It is not affiliated with any entertainment or media company.
Despite the fact that Google’s search engine had trouble with our pages between 2003 and 2007—sometimes failing to index them altogether—people managed to find them somehow. According to an unrepentant Google, our flagship page, Dance Radio Megamix (nee simdancemix.blogspot.com), had garnered over 17,000 pageviews by December 2012. And if you know this company as well as we do, this figure is likely an underestimate.
