POEM - Power Of Electronic Music - the aim of this show is not only to highlight electronic music in all its shapes and forms but also to highlight the value of this often times misunderstood and stigmatised music - in short, a new radio show that deals with all things electronica from interviews with musicians, authors, scholars etc. to testing out instruments and more

Meet your host

Meet Thomas "TJ" Janak. Himself an award - winning musician with 14 album releases under his belt, his love for electronic music started when he was a child. The first single he ever bought was Kraftwerk's "The Robots" when he was a mere 10/11 years old back in 1977/78.

Thomas is involved in radio since 2003 and his long running animal rights show WILD TIME enjoys much success.

He holds a FETAC accreditation in radio program making with merit and distinction and has hosted and produced many shows over the years.

He covered the Frankfurt Musicfair numerous times and one of his music shows was called "Boing Boom Tchak", obviously hinting at Kraftwerk's "Boing Boom Tchak" song from their 1986 release "Electric Cafe", another one was titled The Nighttrain.

He has recorded interviews with the likes of Gary Numan, Midge Ure, The Sparks and his idol Karl Bartos and now wants to do it all over again. Watch this space!!
