THE FIRST RADIO PLAYLIST

All Posts — Dan on September 5, 2014 at 10:01 pm

There will actually be some Acute related posts coming up, as we are working on another release finally, which I will announce shortly. In the meantime I need to write a few other things. In light of next week’s Philip Glass/Steve Reich reunion concerts at BAM, which I’m giddy as a schoolgirl to attend, and Aphex Twin’s upcoming record release, a sure sign of the late 2014 IDM revival, and the release next week of my very first EP, on the fantastic Golf Channel label, which I will plug here, there and everywhere starting in a few days, plus my visit to my college radio alma-mater WOBC, 91.5, Oberlin, Ohio, topped off by my cleaning out the studio and discovering some old papers, I felt it timely to post my first application for said radio station. I will not subject you to the first 6 questions and answers. Number 7 stated Use the back of this page to design a sample playlist. Most programs are 2-3 hours in length, so be sure to include enough material. This is the most heavily weighted part of the application, so think hard!!! Application due Sept 8th, 9PM.┬áFor what it’s worth, Todd Hutlock and/or Jim Haynes marked this a “High Maybe”. I did get a show after all, because of and/or despite the following. Keep in mind, this was 1993 and I was an 18 year old college freshman, so that should excuse some selections and otherwise make me seem cool. After the fold, if you dare.
