Re: “The occupational hazards of making music

Really good feature. You should ask Cindy Lucas of North 2 South somtime about her knee after skipping off the stage ramp at a bar in Seminole.

Re: “10 lists for your listening pleasure

Great list of lists. And kudos for including Pillowfight! I'm pretty sure, though, the HGWT High Road was not brewed by Cigar City.

Re: “Adam Ant: Huzzah to the Hussar!

"Ant broke up the band in 1982" sure is a nicer way to say "Malcolm McLaren stole the Ants out from under Adam to form Bow Wow Wow."

Re: “It’s all about control for 97X

Back in the 60's, I worked a show called headsup. Believe it or not, we got ratings through the roof. We had no playlist and of course, the corporate got greedy and decided that what we needed to do was get a playlist. Bang! there went our wonderful ratings, Bang,Bang, goodbye ownership of the station and hello Clearvoice communications. See what I mean? Even W.M.N.F. in all it's glory uses a playlist. If people could just get rid of that playlist, it would really change the turf of f.m. radio.

Re: “It’s all about control for 97X

WMNF is an exception to the rule. And yes, I am well aware of WMNF, I listen to it too. Have you read the paper? CL covers WMNF events and artists touted by the station pretty regularly (the feature in this week's paper, due out on Thursday, is about Tropical Heatwave), as well as indie music well beyond what 'MNF pushes! Point is, WMNF makes it into the paper all the time. This story is more looking at the idea of a corporate radio station finally making a really big change, what it means to the landscape of broadcast radio and what sort of impact it could have on/what it might mean to broadcast radio in the future.

Re: “It’s all about control for 97X

97x aside and with all due respect... Leilani, in regards to your negative comments about broadcast radio, have you not heard of WMNF TAMPA 88.5 FM?
Hell, it's only been around since 1979 and plays a thousand different ARTISTS
a week... not just 500 different "lame ass played a million times already" songs.

Give it a listen. WMNF radio is alive and well and using HD and streaming effectively.

Re: “Umphrey's McGee: On the McBandwagon

It's not a story, it's a column. It was meant to be a more personal take on Umphrey's, because seeing them live has always been a very personal experience, and I wrote it this way because it felt right, and why would I write a normal 'feature' for any Umphrey's story, anyway? Doesn't do the band justice. Sorry you weren't a fan and read a little too much into my illness, but thanks for reading nonetheless! I am still not a fan of Steve Kimock, saw him before that particular show and seen him since then, and no matter how talented he is, he is not, and will never be, an exciting performer.

Re: “Umphrey's McGee: On the McBandwagon

I don't think this is a very helpful preview. The writer brings WAY too much personal drama to the mix. Like I care that you are ready to puke from a suspect meal? Come on.

Okay maybe you were sick from some shrooms or blotter. But you just cant say in public. Maybe it was a taco. I don't care and neither should any preview readers.
UmsMcGee CAN really bring it. And sometimes they fall a little flat. That's the nature of true grass roots music. It's not prepackaged, prewrapped, prepared for your suit-corp brainwashed mind. Just like a Steve Kimmock show, its real honest and visceral. Sometimes you get bored or distracted from it...and sometimes it blows your universe.

UmsMgGee is extremely good at the sometimes fine line between entertaining and challenging. Infectious Grooves can sometimes challenge you a little too much. Steve Kimmock is treat, but can leave you wondering if he's really gonna BRING it...if you know what I mean. UmsMcGee stands firmly in the middle, and adeptly so. It's worth the 25 ticket. Cheap.....*stuff* these days.
