Hm. I think I like Le Tigre. Hadn't heard them before, really...
Some things I want KCMP to play and that I haven't heard there yet
Well anyway, if they actually have 50,000 recordings, chances are good that they have all of that and just haven't gotten there yet. It would take months to get through everything if it was played end to end (and I'm not sure if they have 50k discs or tracks—quite a bit of a difference).
I think Mark Wheat is my favorite DJ so far, since he seems to like electronic-y stuff a bit more than the others. Of course, I haven't listened to Steve Seel much since he's on overnight. He got bonus points for Hooverphonic.
It looks like Leigh Kamman's show The Jazz Image will air late on Sunday nights, repeating what was on KNOW 91.1 earlier in the day. Did you know that the guy has literally been on the air since 1940? Crazy. I've never heard his show, but he must know his stuff. Yeah I'm not sure what he thinks of this zany new station, but I hope he has given some tips. Apparently he used to host jazz shows weekends on KSTP AM, and they would link up with other stations around the country to listen to what was being played in clubs. A simple and obvious idea if you think about it, but in a way it is so novel these days.Posted by mike at January 26, 2005 08:23 PM | Music | TrackBack
