Night Visions brings you a mix of independent and underrepresented dance, electronic, rock and pop music from around the world. We’re digging deep in our crates to broadcast unheard artists for your discerning ears. Listen Monday-Thursday from 1-2am!
Meet the Hosts:
Aaron Chadwell first discovered his love for playing records as a DJ at WLCV, University of Louisville’s student-run radio station. His talent for song selection was quickly noticed and he was picked up as resident DJ for the hottest dance party in town on Wednesdays at the Frankfort Avenue Beer Depot. Going by the name of DJ Narwhal, the parties got bigger and Chadwell became a regular fixture on the Louisville dance scene.
While finishing up a photography degree at the University of Louisville, Alex Bell, found himself spending less time in the dark room and much more in his bedroom with a mixer and two turntables, teaching himself the art of beat matching. After seeing what he could do, a friend talked him into deejaying a small house party and DJ A.Bell was born. It only took a couple of these parties until the house could no longer hold the crowd and A.Bell needed a new outlet.
It was around this time that the two met and started deejaying parties together. They quickly realized that working as a team would be the smartest career move, and would give them the best opportunity to build on the legendary music scene of this small city. Any digital form of music was cut out and the OK DeeJays have since made it their duty to resonate under-represented disco, house and indie tracks, performing frequently at local clubs such as Zanzabar, Headliners Music Hall, and Maker’s Mark Lounge. By hosting crazy parties and booking a variety of established bands and DJs under the name of OK Productions, Alex and Aaron have added a new level of energy and innovation to the city of Louisville’s nightlife. Now they are doing the same for the radio!
Sam Sneed is a “street walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm. He is the runaway son of the nuclear A-bomb. He is the world’s forgotten boy, the one who searches and destroys.”
Sam in not a Louisville native, he hails from the tundra of Alaska. Upon moving to Louisville he became quickly immersed in the music scene. In the beginning it was all about playing in punk/garage bands, then to booking shows, working at an indie record label, college radio, club djing, and now is one of your hosts on Night Visions Radio. Sam serves as the gritty counterpart to the OK Deejays, creating more of a diversified atmosphere. Sam’s passion of music ranges from the MC5 to the Jackson five, from Public Enemy to Public Image Limited.
