First of all, thank you from the ESC Insight team for all your kind words that Juke Box Jury has returned for the 2017. In case you missed it our debut episode was posted yesterday. It’s the second episode that I want to highlight. You’ll be able to listen to it next Tuesday (March 21st) all being well, but you won’t be the first to hear it.
For the first time in its seven year history, we’re going to record Juke Box Jury live with a studio audience!
Every year I travel to the world-famous South By Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas. This year there are over 3000 bands and performers playing live showcases on 200 stages over a five day period. As well as the music there are panels, seasons, and live recordings across the state capital. Earlier this year the SXSW organisers asked ESC Insight if we would record a live edition of Juke Box Jury on one of those stages.
We said yes.
Those of you at SXSW you can come along to meet Ewan and the judges, participate in the show, and perhaps give out your very own Hit, Miss, or Maybe. The show runs 1230-1330 on Thursday 16th March, in the Brazos Room at the JW Marriot. More details can be found at the SXSW website.
Everyone else, get ready to listen next week to a unique Juke Box Jury!
