Live365's "Featured Spotlight Station" this week is The Internet's Country Station B105! We spoke with Derek Michaud about the station's setup, what listeners can expect to hear, and the station's favorite songs. Check out the interview below!
What brought you to Live365?
I have wanted to be in radio since I was 12. I am now 38. I have tried to get on country radio for years, I have never made it so far. Live365 allows me to do it my way! :)
What's your studio like?
I use Station Playlist software and my microphone is a AT2035. I am running on a Windows 10 machine.
What can listeners expect when they tune in to your station?
Listeners can expect Hot Country Hits from the 90'S to NOW. I am on the air Monday through Friday 3:00-7:00pm ET and I am the only voice on B105.
The Internet's Country Station B105 is run with passion and a lot of love for the music.
What has been your favorite moment as a DJ/Station Manager so far?
The best part is the fact that I am running a commercial-based country music radio station that is LEGAL!!!
What is the best concert you've ever attended, and why?
I would have to say, November 15, 2002, I saw Toby Keith for the first time! That was something I thought I would never get a chance to do. My all time favorite artist is Toby Keith, I have seen him 8 times now.
What artist (dead or alive) would you love to see live, but haven't had the chance to see?
We asked for some of the station's favorite songs. Here's what they had to say!
- Young Forever - Eric Paslay
- Some Of It - Eric Church
- Simple - Florida Georgia Line
- I'm Just Talkin' About Tonight - Toby Keith
- As Good As I Once Was - Toby Keith
- My Kinda Party - Jason Aldean
- Take a Little Ride - Jason Aldean
- This Is How We Roll ft. Luke Bryan - Florida Georgia Line
- She Don't Love You - Eric Paslay
- Burning Man ft. Brothers Osborne - Dierks Bentley
Why do you eat certain foods? Well, some might say, 'I don't know I just like it!' I am not a lyric guy, I like the music that sounds good to me. I don't like or love country music, I live for country music! It is my all time favorite music to listen to! The fact that I combined my love for radio with my love for country music is a dream come true!
