Conflict Diamonds Radio Show

Ok, so I have a weekly radio show at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Fridays from 4-6 PM CST I offer up a set of international booty bass / global ghettotech / other horrible name with questionable racist/classist/sexist assumptions built in for regularly scheduled liberal guilt trip. Hotness without borders, questionable reference to imperialism present and unreconciled. 

The station is internet-only, which bums me out, since I am a big believer in the possibilities for local radio to re-territorialize space, to bring out connections among people living close together… plus, many people (self included) only listen to radio in the car. Not to mention there’s no possibility of that serendipity when you’re perusing the left side of your FM dial and hear that bizarre track that you just HAVE to call the DJ about — I used to have this Spanish breakcore fan call into my late late show on WHPK on the regular (best quote: “Yeah, I sold all my records except my breakcore and my acid house”)… On the other hand, potentially anyone with an internet connection can listen to my show. 

Anyway, I digress. I’m going to post playlists from my shows on the blog because, well, why the fuck not? I’m too busy with teaching/grad apps/travel/radio shows at the moment to spend lots of time on lengthy analytical posts, WHICH I LOVE TO DO — I barely have time to read blogs let alone MAKE them. In the future I might try to host shows as mp3s/podcasts once I figure out how to record in the studio. Until then, tune in in real time! After the break, my first five shows:
