Faded Flannel was conceived in Seattle in late 1997 as a name that
eventually encompass the many opportunities that the Seattle music
scene of the nineties presented. Those ideas included a webradio
station dedicated to the music of the Pacific Northwest, a website
presenting the opportunity to explore those artists and purchase their
music, a nationally syndicated weekly or monthly show, interviews with
the artists and those who were part of the scene...and the list goes on.
It was a side-project that was likely too big on ideas and too short on
time and manpower. The first protype of the website was developed
in late 1998, while at an internet company in Los Angeles that worked
with radio station websites themselves. Back in Seattle in
1999, there was preparation to begin some deployment.
Again, it was shelved in favor of other on-going business. In
2002, "Faded Flannel" was brought to XM Satellite Radio as a
one-hour feature show, broadcast nationwide on Channel 44, known as
Fred. It eventually moved over to the newer alternative channel,
Ethel, where it resided until the feature ended it's run.
Now, ten years after the original concept, the website is finally
the overall plan remains the same on the future opportunities for Faded
Flannel. Additions and updates are continuing. Thanks
