It was winter 1986 when I heard Radiorama for the first time in my life. It was “Aliens” played at a school discotheque from a reel to reel player. I was eleven years old. Probably the impression was quite huge, as I became a fan of this sound immediately. For a young teenager in the 80s in Poland it wasn’t very easy to collect music. The original records imported from the west were reserved for those who were really well situated, then there was the second group of people who were buying pirate cassettes at some marts. I belonged to the third one: people who recorded their beloved music from the radio. In spite of being a part of Eastern bloc, Polish radio was delivering loads of foreign music in various shows by such famous radio DJs and journalists as Marek Niedźwiedzki, Bogdan Fabiański, Jerzy Rowiński, Roman Rogowiecki, Marek Wiernik or Tomasz Beksiński to name a few. Thank to those people we were able to be quite up to date with what was going on in World music of almost every genre.
In 1986 it was totally beyond my imagination, that 30 years later I would be an owner of numerous music labels, producing my own music and releasing records, but somehow I must have deeply felt something like that already then.
Today 80% of my time dedicated to music is reserved for modern stuff like house & nu disco, but the memory of good & old eighties and emotions it has been always recalling are so strong, that I couldn’t resist the desire of giving the 80s music one more chance.
It wouldn’t have been possible without invaluable support from the closest friends, who I could always count on (you guys know who I am talking about), but yes, we made it.
The Analog Language label was born and it’s delivering pure 80s music on CD worldwide. I will keep you updated regularly if all goes well. Meantime, enjoy some cool portion of music, that has been close to me for last 30 years – our 30th Anniversary double CD Radiorama “Desires & Vampires”, “The Second” and “The Legend” albums.
