Popular Liverpool internet broadcaster Melodic Distraction are looking for a new premises due to the land where their building is located on being put up for sale.
Independently operated by James Zaremba and Josh Aitman, Melodic Distraction have been on the air six days a week since 2017. They’ve reassured their loyal listening base that the change of location won’t be affecting their regular broadcast of up-and-coming Liverpool talent. The lineup of resident hosts has previously included stalwarts like Crazy P, Reedale Rise and ASOK.
Their current lease has only been renewed with short extensions. With redevelopment high on the cards due to the Baltic Triangle’s growing economy, they’ve conceded it’s time to find a new base of operations.
“Melodic Distraction have decided to move on, and focus our time and attention on local radio, broader plans, our hosts and community of listeners,” reads a press statement. “We’re endeavoring to find a new location rather than fighting to stay for tiny incremental slivers of time in our current studio.”
Having cultivated a dedicated fan base, their SoundCloud also hosts an eclectic mixture of premieres covering a broad range of genres from disco, funk, soul and jazz to house, techno and UK garage.
