PD ID

POP Depresija kao radijska emisija postoji od 16. februara 2001. Posle tri godine rada na Radio Politici, od 2. februara 2004. godine emisija se emitovala na II programu Radija Studio B, DJ Radiju 949 (94.9 FM). Promene u odnosu drzave prema medijima i donesenje novih zakona u ovoj oblasti uslovile su da PD i treci put promeni svoj dom (mada je ovoga puta promena samo u imenu), tako da se emisija sada emituje svakog ponedeljka od 22 do 24h na Radiju Studio B, koji se u Beogradu hvata na frekvencijama 100.8, 99.1 i 105.4 FM.

Od jeseni 2002. PD funkcionise i kao koncertna agencija - prvi koncert realizovan u saradnji sa tadašnjom koncertnom agencijom B92 (Draganom i Zlatkom) bio je nastup Nine Nastasije (Nina Nastasia) sa bendom.

U februaru 2007. u saradnji sa web magazinom POPBOKS i PGP-RTS-om izašao je naš prvi CD – kompilacija “nove srpske muzicke scene” Jutro će promeniti sve?

Od jeseni 2002. POP Depresija funkcioniše i kao koncertna agencija – prvi koncert realizovan je u saradnji sa tadašnjom koncertnom agencijom B92 (Draganom Ambrozićem i Zlatkom Jošićem) bio je nastup Nine Nastasije (Nina Nastasia) sa bendom. Tokom sledećih godina imali smo tu sreću i zadovoljstvo da sami ili u saradnji sa “Žednim uhom” i Matom Škugorom i Domagojem Šošićem u Beograd dovedemo brojne muzičke heroje, neki od njih su: Teenage Fanclub, Mark Lanegan Band, Wovenhand, Bonnie Prince Billy, Chuck Prophet, Mono, Steve Wynn, Richmond Fontaine, Handsome Furs, Richard Buckner…

Od 2004. godine POP Depresija su Ivan i Svetlana. I svi ostali.

POP Depression is radio show, concert agency and webzine. Tune in every Monday from 10-12 p.m. CET (Studio B stream) for the soulful and very personal mix of full-bloodied rock hymns, ‘pathos’, indie sonnets and epic (melo)drama, painted with roaring yet subtle guitars, funny noises, edgy strings and floating keyboards, all brought to you by Ivan Loncarevic.

In September, 2002. POP Depression started a new chapter – concert agency (bookings and promotion) with a sold out Nina Nastasia show in Dom Omladine Beograda. In the years that followed, PD welcomed Teenage Fanclub, Mark Lanegan Band, Wovenhand, Bonnie Prince Billy, Chuck Prophet, Mono, Steve Wynn, Richmond Fontaine, Handsome Furs, Richard Buckner, among many others.

In 2007. PD faced yet another exciting challenge – music publishing. For our first effort, we selected and helped produce a collection of 12 original songs by new Serbian alternative bands, called ‘Morning Will Change Everything?’ that was released by major label PGP-RTS in February 2007.

Continuous collaboration with local music scene resulted in new adventure – this time celebrating 10-year anniversary of our concert agency. We invited local bands who opened for PD shows to cover one track from foreign artist who were main act on PD shows over the past 10 years. This web-only compilation is due in summer 2013.

Radio show POP Depression is on the air since February, 16th 2001. For three years the show was broadcast by local Radio Politika. As of February 2nd 2004. PD found a new home within the specialized one-man show music Radio 949 (Radio Studio B music program). The changes in the broadcast laws and licencing caused Radio 949 to be closed in September 2006, so PD changed its home for the third time. This time only formally, since it stayed within the Studio B’s only radio program, put out in Belgrade area on 100,8 and 99,1 FM.

More than ten years POP Depression are Ivan and Svetlana. And everyone else.
