St Vincent launches 70s Apple Music Station
This sounds great, but is super niche: Annie Clark, aka St Vincent, is getting her own Apple music radio station. In her shows she plays a New York DJ, and the whole thing is set in specific days in the 70s from which she’ll play the hits, as well as future classics.
She puts it thus: “On WSTV Radio, I take a little acid-trip back in time with a smooth voice and all the coolest new (old) tunes. It is a lot of fun (for me, at least.) Enjoy!!”
Apple’s description drops the drugs: “On WSTV Radio, the innovative art-rocker introduces her latest persona as she throws it back to the ’70s—tapping into the decade’s news, traffic, weather, and biggest hits by playing an NYC radio DJ…Clark takes a ‘day in the life’ approach on each episode, staying true to the day’s events as pulled from news archives. She’ll transport you back in time by playing the top three charting songs and new song ‘premieres’ from up-and-coming artists (who ended up making it big, of course) she took inspiration from while making her latest album Daddy’s Home.”
Episode 1 (August 15th, 1972) is out now. Where’s the Apple password written down…
