I am Michael Wright,the creator and presenter of The Perfumed Garden radio show,
on Perfumed Radio. I created the show in the fall of 2010. I am solely responsible
for the show’s music I play what the heck I like. I host the show which broadcasts
online 24hrs a day every day. It’s a labour of love being able to share the music
I love with an ever growing global audience.
I take great care and time producing every edition of the Perfumed Garden show and
receive great assistance from my partner in Nashville Jeff Byrd. Jeff gave me the
opportunity to make my shows. Without his wonderful and diligent technical help assistance,
belief, and commitment, The Perfumed Garden show would not have happened.
I am from Blackpool in the UK, I live in Vancouver Canada at this time, I record
all the Perfumed Garden shows in Vancouver and currently broadcast the shows online
from Vancouver Canada.
In the UK I produced approx 100 live gigs, most of which I MC’d, I have also booked
band gigs, managed a rock band, and attended literally hundreds of concerts going
back a number of years... The Perfumed Garden is my show presenting alternative music
from 5 decades.
Why The Perfumed Garden Show?
It’s safe to say we all love music. In the early 1990s a few large media conglomerates
basically ate up small and medium radio stations. Once that was achieved music radio
was basically consolidated into a handful of very large media companies. As a result,
FM radio as we used to know disappeared. Today most FM radio is piped-in playlists
from some central server controlled by one of the media giants, ditto AM radio. As
a consequence of this media play, radio personalities we knew and loved and in some
case grew up with, have all gone. Wherever we go we hear the same playlist of music
‘product’ on both FM and AM radio. Today’s generation have never experienced radio
as it was. We are literally spoon fed the music the Industry is marketing. No controversial
lyrics, no ‘protest’ songs, it’s all tepid middle of the road(MOR) ‘music product’
filling the airwaves.
I like to listen to music on radio, or online with a real human presenter, I don’t
want continuous mixes or piped-in playlists. In fall 2010 I was given the opportunity
to make my own show, I named it The Perfumed Garden after the 1st show created by
UK legend John Peel in 1967. To date I have recorded over 500 2hr editions. Real
music from the 60s thru today, a real presenter, tracks heard nowhere else, be the
