Radio Station Playing Only Music by Dead Musicians?

Just an idea that came to me during one of my free thinking sessions I practice to try to think of interest, slightly radical ideas to keep my mind open and abstract as I aged. 🙂

What if there were a radio station that only played popular music by musicians who were deceased? Its repertoire could literally grow all the time, to include entire catalogs of new musicians having just passed away. In fact, it could do tributes to them by introducing new catalogs over several hours each day following the deaths.

I understand it might seem morbid to have that cloud of thought overhanging your listening enjoyment, that all these people were dead, but I get quite reflective some time listening to music by people no longer with us. And you might get a few surprises to hear songs by people you didn’t know had died. That’s when the reflection would kick in for me.

As for groups, play songs people who passed away had a hand in writing if they didn’t sing, or only songs they sung, and make it clear at the beginning and/or end, of course.

And hopefully, nobody listening will hope someone will die soon so they can hear their music on the station. Just turn the dial, eh? 🙂
