I’m very sad to announce that the El Raedio Show will no longer be airing on KCFS every Friday afternoon.
This morning, I received an email explaining that my show has been cut due to the amount of students interested in a show this semester. Apparently seven months means nothing to them if you’re not registered at the university.

After taking a month off and switching time slots, the El Rae-dio show came back refreshed and renewed.
On Episode 12, Dan and Mike Nissen of The Sewer Rats joined me in the studio. The brothers and I chatted about their appearance at 44 Fest in Sioux Falls, future plans for the band, and the cooperative effort of bands in the local music scene.
The Sewer Rats currently have one album out (Save Yourself), and are currently in the works of putting another one together. Stay up to date with the band by checking them out on MySpace, Facebook and ReverbNation.
