How did you get involved?
I was getting really into music journalism last summer, so I decided volunteering for KSDB was a great way I could personally get involved in something other than personal projects. I didn’t do too much last semester, but as soon as I saw a job in the music department was available, I knew I had to become a part of the team.
What does your job entail?
I mainly write for the website; album reviews, music rotation Wednesdays, What’s Spinning, and more; but I also enter music into the system, help listen to new promoter CDs, and do whatever else Sara needs help with.
Favorite part of your position? Or the station?
Personally, I love finding new artists, especially if they’re smaller. So going through the all of the newly released albums we’re sent is a great time. I also just love writing about music. I sometimes even do it in my free time.
What’s your biggest goal this semester?
Starting off; just consistently getting our content out there. After everything’s settled, hopefully coming up with new ideas to keep things fresh; either for the website, or the music department.
Hypermagic Mountain by Lightning Bolt – If you ever need some cacophony in your life, it’s some of the best noise rock out there.
Sound of Silver by LCD Soundsystem – James Murphy is a saint, and “Someone Great” is up there with my favorite songs ever.
Blood Sugar Sex Magik by the Red Hot Chili Peppers – In my opinion, their best album. I will never not jam to Flea’s basslines.
Although I’ve been out of it for a while, I am a second degree blackbelt in Taekwondo.
