Creative Music November 20, 2014 10pm - Midnight
Blog Name: Progressive NightsAuthor: Miff Mole Posted on: November 20, 2014
This month is almost over and the move is getting deeper. In case you missed the memo, KSDS-FM is moving the whole thing to another building on the City College campus. The grass is green in that new building but nothing is running yet. We are broadcasting, streaming, and whatever else we can do to get the music to you, but the living breathing station is still in boxes, figuratively speaking. Meanwhile, I'm going through drills with the Index of Possibilities and calculating multiple run times for stress tested overlap with Jazz tones. And I'm really really trying not to jump to conclusions (subtle hint to the hotshots).
