Well, my new show is actually just my old show, Bay Area Music, with a new name and a slightly new format. We’re calling the show Wiretap Music on BTR cuz I brought in my partner in running WiretapMusic.com, the Bay Area’s music resource, to help DJ my show. Her name is Olivia Parriott and she extends the reach of my show even deeper into the scene.
As a web editor at Greenpeace and musician myself, I am impressed by just about anyone who melds the worlds of music and activism. People criticize groups like Rage Against the Machine for putting their politics into their music, but to me that’s asinine. Not being political is a stance with political implications all the same.
There’s a really cool project here in the Bay Area called ArtfulChange.org that I think is doing cool stuff. I got me one of their t-shirts, yeah boy.
And remember to listen locally!
