About Me
I'm the local music director for a community radio station, WFHB in Bloomington Indiana, and a music programmer who has a degree in journalism and no job in journalism. My main intent in joining this site is to write previews/reviews of shows in my town and perhaps in Indy. I go out often and figure I might as well get some practice at writing in the process. On a more practical level, I'm hoping to recruit new local music for our radio station.

Pit Stop Music Marathon: The First Weekend

This last Saturday the evening temperature was breaking 40 degrees for the first time in a few months, and the Bloomington streets were filled weekend revelers.

A drunk guy was being briskly escorted up… Continue

It is a two-hour block of programming that takes place from 9pm to 11pm and features music exclusively from Indiana musicians past and present. Within that program time there is a half hour devoted to live performances of featured… Continue

Austin Lucas - Southern Indiana Hills and House Shows

I’ve been to a lot of house shows over the last nine years that I’ve been in Bloomington. Sometimes these shows are incredible and fill me with hope for the future of local music in this town. Other times they make me wonder why I didn’t stay home and finish whatever movie Comedy Central is playing, e.g., Coming to America, and enjoy the musical flourishing of Sexual Chocolate instead of braving the rain. The Sunday after Thanksgiving, Austin Lucas, with the help of Mark Allen and Mike Hale… Continue
