Station DJ Matt Fouty spoke with band vocalist Jonas Stein about touring and the new record.
Station DJ Carly Parana interviewed the band before their performance at West Virginia University’s Creative Arts Center. Give it a listen.
Hours before his Morgantown performance, rapper Freeway stopped by the U92 station to be interviewed on The Urban Diner, U92’s hip hop specialty show.
Freeway has spent time with Roc-A-Fella records, worked with Jay-Z and now resides with Rhymesayers Entertainment and G-Unit Philly. His style has also been attributed to that of Ghostface Killah’s.
Freeway’s latest record, Diamond in the Ruff, is discussed in the interview as well as his association with the Muslim faith. The interview was hosted by U92 Urban Diner Director Stephen Hoops.
Dylan Baldi found himself bored with college sometime in 2009 and, from there, started recording music, by himself, on a typical desktop computer. Three years later, he’s a member of Cloud Nothings, a moderately successful band on a nationwide tour, with an album enjoyed by many under its arm.
That album, Attack on Memory, received a Best New Music stamp from Pitchfork upon it’s release as well as numerous other positive reviews, and even here at U92, the album was met with a few months of rotation play.
I caught up with Dylan and band drummer Jayson Gerycz at their most recent show in D.C. We discussed Attack on Memory, Steve Albini, and their experience at South By Southwest.
