Show: Outta Site (outtamind)–Mondays 7-8pm
Name: Katie Reichard
Years at the SOCC: Since my sophomore year. January of 2010.
Is your show guided by a central concept, genre, or theme?
My show centers around the concept of folk music as something more than a guy playing acoustic guitar and singing about picket lines (Though I do occasionally play Pete Seeger songs). I like to play covers of folk classics and discuss variations on the genre we see with new technology and the merging of different musical styles…
5 Favorite Bands/Songs:
Wilco (Yankee Hotel especially), Josh Ritter, Ryan Adams, the Head and the Heart, and Bob Dylan…
Why do you DJ? what value do you see in Student radio?
I DJ because I spend absurdly large amounts of time reading music blogs, going to shows, and searching the ends of the internet for new musicians. I see my show as a way of sharing that with other people. A lot of people love music and want to hear new things, but not everyone obsesses over it like me, so I can help people out and also have a great excuse for procrastination.
Student radio gives a voice to our community, and is great because of the diverse show types – you never know what you’re going to hear…
Is there anything that you’d like to mention about the particular set that is being featured?
As you can tell — I don’t always play only “folk”… I like to amp up the energy every once in awhile, but, when doing so, I try to play songs that aren’t top 40 — I’m more likely to play Blue Scholars or Common Market (or a mashup) than Jay Z or Kanye…
