Just perfect for anyone who wants a little serenity in their lives. Lets hope it is not just "flavour of the month" or a short lived fad. Hope you guys in the US will support this station with a bit of communication with them. Maybe you could e mail the link to your friends as well
Thanks Joe for introducing us such a nice station. The station is just perfect for me as Comet has recommended. I actually have set up one of my computers to use it as a radio with an external home made digital amplifier and good speakers. It is a little old laptop but I confirmed it worked fine to listen to Sky.FM. I am currently listening young Hayley's Ave Maria (Schubert). The station is really nice!
That was a great find. Hope that you are successful in letting them know how well that it has been received around the world by HWI members, I have been checking in with the station very frequently, and sometimes leave it running in the background. Their choice of music is very nice, IMO. I have, of course, missed some of Hayley's songs, but so far have not heard any from Paradiso, Don't know whether it is me, or that they don't happen to have Paradiso.
Thanks SOO much Joe! Just had a wonderful treat from this station: 4 Hayley songs is a row !! Walking In The Air, Mists of Islay from Odyssey (funny thing: they spelled it “islEy" ), Shiro Iro Wa Koibito No Iro, and as I type, Laudate Dominum!! Wow, these people really know their Hayley! A gem of a station.
Just heard "On the Wings of Time". Love that song. This station plays so much that UK folk who don't makr the effort to folow Hayley might not be aware of.
As far as I know, "Shiro Iro Wa Koibito" and "On the Wings of Time" are in the Japanese domestic version only. The station is the border-less. I also can enjoy different versions of Hayley's CD. What a station! I do thank to Joe for finding us such a great station. You made my days brighter.
Another testament to their knowledge of Hayley's Japanese works: They played her solo “Time To Say Goodbye,” which was only released on one obscure Japanese best-of. And right now Yuki No Hana (Snowflower)!!! These people are quite thorough, no? Good on them!!
SKY.FM is very nice to listen. But I wondered myself, “Is there any bad intentions behind it?” They say, “Every rose has its thorn. There's no rose without a thorn.” I am a person who pays attentions on what happens behind it. I have checked every thorn when you connect to SKY.FM. There appeared following thorns.
Conclusion: You'd better just enable “audioaddict.com” other than “sky.fm”. Others can be disabled. Without disabling them, you may encounter something you do not want in the future. As far as I investigate those thorns, some of them are not so harmful but you'd better not expose your PC to the net.
They just played Listen to the Wind not too long ago! Also Ave Maria (Bach). Since I didn't hear it, I don't know whether it was the RoD or HW version. Also, they played a rather obscure Josh Groban song, too! It was from an exclusive, limited edition Hallmark CD for Valentine's Day, called With You. It's one of his best songs ever, and he wrote it, too!
Yes, the song is to the tune from Malena. Malena was first, of course. I love both songs, but I decided I like Hayley's song better. Both romantic, but You're Still You was actually written by a woman for her daughter, if I remember right. It's a song for any sort of close relationship, really.
