October 4, 2009

No new Q&A this week - although I did try (as I always do). Stay tuned for next week's Q&A with Bastard Pop artist Atom, not to mention features on Spacklequeen and Eddie Def...

While I've got your attention, I really feel I must inform you of two very big, recent happenings... The first is that KUOM, the radio station which was the first to allow me to experiment with this programming, has just this past week broadened the scope of its influence by adding two new FM signals to its already influential (and historic) AM signal (the much loved AM 770). You can now access Radio K at any time, day or night, on the radio in Minneapolis at 104.5 FM and 100.7 FM in St. Paul. Congratulations to all the individuals who have worked so very long and hard on this project, over the course of many years...

The other big story recently, is that Jon Leidecker (aka Wobbly) has uploaded the third installment of his series, Variations, chronicling the history of the sample in music and audio art. It's been very educational, even entertaining, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been waiting anxiously for each new installment. Check out Variations, Episode Three, HERE.

Tune in again next week for a brand new episode of Some Assembly Required, along with our Q&A with Mashup artist, At0m...

Thank for listening!
Jon Nelson
