About

Big Sonic Heaven is a music program created, hosted and produced by Darren Revell.

The first chapter of Big Sonic Heaven had an eight-year run from 1995-2003 on 96.3 FM in Detroit, Michigan. Big Sonic Heaven aired every Sunday evening for four hours and featured shoegaze, dream pop, trip-hop, Britpop, and electronic sounds by bands such as Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, Dead Can Dance, Portishead, Depeche Mode, Ride, Slowdive, The Cure, Hooverphonic, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and The Smiths to name a few.

Additionally, Revell was instrumental in providing local talent with a radio presence. Revell made a significant impact in Detroit with the program, as there were very few radio shows that catered to this genre and its fans.

Revell revived “Big Sonic Heaven” on Indie 103.1 in Los Angeles, California in January 2007. The two-hour program aired Mondays through Thursdays at 10pm. At 10am on January 15, 2009, Indie 103.1 went off the air.

On Sunday Sept 12, 2010 Big Sonic Heaven returned to the airwaves via the Internet on Strangeways Radio out of Detroit. The show aired from 9-11PM EST every Sunday night.

The next home for Big Sonic Heaven after Strangeways Radio was Los Angeles based Moheak Radio where Revell was the Music Director and hosted Big Sonic Heaven twice a week from mid 2010 to September of 2012.
