Club for Five – A Cappella Radio History
Finnish vocal band Club For Five is making some radio history in Finland. Since April 8th, the biggest commercial radio station “Radio Suomipop” bas been using all vocal theme music and soundscape by Club For Five in its morning program. The show “Aamulypsy” (trans. Morning Milking) is by far the most popular morning program in Finland airing daily from 6 to 10 am, so this is quite unusual and noticeable exposure for a cappella music in the country.
Since the style of the show is rather unruly and funny to begin with, Club For Five was naturally also encouraged by the station to go a little “overboard”. The band composed and produced a set of quite insane sounding comical farm/western themed music and animal noises and other sound effects for the show. Club For Five had such a blast in the studio that they decided to make a little Making of Video. It’s comprised by studio footage and some of the all vocal theme music companied by “a little out of the ordinary” use of the human voice…

If you want to find more about Club For Five, go to their website or like them on Facebook. Unfortunately we haven’t received their cds etc. at Acappellazone, maybe you could drop the occasional line on their social media to join the platform and make it easier for people around Europe to one-stop a cappella shop… [FSt]
