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.
I’m working on setting something else up, but it’s hard to constantly rearrange time slots, etc, when you have numerous other jobs. I’ll keep you all updated on the situation. I’m also tossing around the idea of just having some sort of podcast. We’ll see.
Thanks to everyone who has listened to my show thus far. I really appreciate you all. None of this would have been possible without listeners, and wonderful musicians willing to spend some time with me on air. I hope this is not the end.
I’m very excited to be putting together an event in Sioux Falls titled the Musicians Market.
The event is set for October 8, 2010, at the 8th and Railroad Center in downtown Sioux Falls.
The Musicians Market will present the Sioux Falls community with an opportunity to be involved in and experience the local music scene firsthand. The event will hold a mixer for bands, media, recording studios, bookings agents, photographers, and various others involved with music. It will also allow the public to visit with the artists and discover new talent.
Created to build a united group of artists and solidify the local scene, the MM is open to everyone. Local music will be played throughout the night, but no bands will be performing live. Thus, no one band, genre, or age group will be treated as a main focus. The event is open to anyone involved with music, from playing an instrument to covering concerts for the news to taking photos for band websites, and so on. Continue reading
My good friends in Soulcrate Music have released a new video for “Sleep Awake”. It’s amazing, and was filmed locally. I was at the shoot for a couple hours, and it was a ton of fun. That rabbit cracks me up every time.
Check it out and go see them on the Sleep Awake Tour.
Tomorrow night will be quite the fucking rap party.
Why? Cause the Stophouse gampos will be in town.
The Minneapolis natives are some of my favorite people to hang with. Prof puts on an amazing show for the crowd and is definitely worth checking out. I was able to score a phone interview with the ever amazing rapper last week – thankfully I had some time to edit his language before airing it today.
Check out this crazy motherfucker tomorrow (Saturday, Aug. 28) at Nutty’s North with Sims from Doomtree. Openers include Midwest Blessed and V the Noble One.
If you don’t go, you hate fun.
As always, you can download the interview via MediaFire here. Episode 16 originally aired August 27, 2010 at 94.5 KCFS (Sioux Falls).
Check out Prof on Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter.
Go to Stophouse’s website to check out some free music and hilarious videos.
My good friend, Crista Bell, lives in Minneapolis. As she shares my love for Astronautalis, P.O.S., and Yelawolf (among many others), I clearly trust her judgment in music.
So when she brought a Minne-based ska/hip-hop/punk/reggae group, Culture Cry Wolf, to my attention, I fell in love immediately. Continue reading
I’ve always been a big fan of Avian Sunrise’s piano-driven pop music from the start. I remember seeing them for the first time last summer, and have been following their career (in a completely non-creeper way) ever since. Needless to say, it was a pleasure to finally get a couple of the guys in on my show.
These passionate musicians have some of the most level-headed personalities I’ve met, with a real perception of how to go about their musical careers. Though most of them are new to the whole ‘band’ thing, they are clearly on the right track to success and have a ton of great things lining up for them.
Be sure to check the group out on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.
