Owner / DJ Safira
Specializing in playing more rock music than deemed legal by local authorities.
When I was a young child growing up in the town of Clayton, New York, I fondly remember the times that me and a cousin would sneak away from our backyard and wander down to the street to a storefront that the known local “hippies” hung out at. We would sit for hours listening to them talk, play music and listen to music. I learned to love the sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Creedence Clearwater, Three Dog Night, and Purple Rain, just to name a few.
Later as a young teen I would listen to my transistor radio on one of the two stations in town, listening to Casey Kasims American Top 40. Happy that for at least 3 hours a week there was something decent to listen to on the radio!
The first album I bought with my hard-earned allowance money was “Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs” by Derek and the Dominos. I played those albums over and over on my small blue suitcase record player until I knew all the songs. I only stopped after my mother threatened to take away my record player. Even today Layla and Bell Bottom Blues are two of my favorite songs.
Music is my go-to drug of choice. Not only can it calm me after a stressful day, but it also energizes me when caffeine doesn’t do the trick.
