Survey Says!

Posted By on Thu, May 1, 2008 at 3:39 PM

I stopped by the Radiator last night and was a guest on Jim Lockridge's show Rocket Shop. Whenever I swing by the station, I find myself wishing I had more time to host my own show. It's always a blast to go on air and talk about new music. But for now I guess I'll have to be content lending a hand when I can. Ideally, I'd like to get a Seven Days show going and rotate DJing duties amongst staff and interns. We shall see . . .

Jim was kind enough to let me have the first half hour to play some of the music we've recently reviewed in the paper. I played tracks from new discs by The Plastic Billionaires, Shawn Grady, Rubblebucket Orchestra, Red Hot Juba and a new favorite, Forrest Mulerath. UVM roots duo The Goshen Ramblers stopped by for a live set as well. Good times.

While I was there, Jim mentioned a new survey Big Heavy World is conducting in partnership with the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce. The idea is to get input from as many sources connected to the VT music scene (musicians, venue owners, fans, etc.) as possible to help BHW find new ways of supporting and promoting VT music. As always, a noble endeavor from Jim and the BHW crew. You can take the survey here. It only takes a minute or two.

And before I forget, Inner Fire District is playing tonight at the North End Studio on the corner of Archibald and N. Winooski Ave. This will be the last IFD show for several months as accordionist extrordinaire David Symons is headed to Poland and exiled on Church St. sax player Zoe Christianson is headed to Latvia.  The show starts at 9 p.m. and, according to Symons is "$5 for the proletariat and the destitute" and "$10 for everyone else."
