The Music Machine Comes to the Global Voice!

Hi everyone!

My name is Brian Hartgen, the newest presenter on the Global Voice, and I hope you'll be able to join me for my weekly show, "The Music Machine", each Sunday starting April 29 at 1600 UTC, which is 5 PM UK, 12 PM Eastern, right before the Atitude Test!

Most people enjoy listening to music of all kinds. Many people want to know about the music they are listening to or to hear songs which are not part of radio playlists. If you are one of those people, look no further than the Music Machine!

For two hours each week, I'll do my very best to present an interesting musical mix from different genres. You are likely to learn a thing or two about the music I play and every week I'll bring to you a different type of programme including themed shows, profiles of artists or groups or maybe even a music documentary which I will produce.

So, what's on this week's show?

Given this is a new incarnation of the Music Machine, I thought we would have a music-based theme and hopefully you would like to get involved. I would like to hear about songs with either the word "Start", "Begin", "Begun" or "New" in the title, or which indicate the ending of an event and moving onto a new one. Abba's song "Move On" may be a good suggestion in that regard, but you might also choose Craig David's "Walking Away" as that indicates the ending of a relationship and moving onto pastures new. Other more obvious choices might be Hot Chocolate's "It started with a Kiss", or the Carpenters, "We've only just begun".

So, please put your thinking caps on and do suggest songs to fit in with the theme of the show if you can! It would be wonderful to hear from you!

You can e-mail your song requests and suggestions right now ahead of time to
or tweet @BrianHartgen
and I will make sure they get into the programme!

I can't wait to get to know you all this coming Sunday and together we'll have a great time sharing the music!

See you on Sunday!

Brian Hartgen
