A long year in lockdown has given me plenty of time to think of a lot of things. One of those things that I've been spending a lot of time thinking about is how a small city or town, one that is in need of revitalization, should work with a local radio station to develop a public/private partnership in order to sell their city/town/region using the music of independent artists as their "front porch".We're all familiar with how colleges like to say that athletic programs are the front porch of their institutions, maybe not the most important room in the house but certainly one of their most visible. My crazy idea is centered on a radio station using the music of independent artists as the front porch for the city where the station is based. Similar to how the following communities use art as a way to make people aware of their communities:
Marfa – a robust art scene
Ojai – budding artists and health gurus
Tacoma – indie art galleries
Beacon – largest contemporary art museum in the country
Black River Delta - California Sun
Jafé - Alaskan Thunderfok
7th Grade Girl Fight - In Between
Frankensteiner - Average Speed Camera
Freeloader - Gimme What's Left Of Your Love
Us - Paisley Underground
Clouds Taste Satanic - Not Fragile / Free Wheelin'
Mad Daddy - Just You Wait (And See)
Greg Antista and the Lonely Streets - Down On Commonwealth
X-Ray Love - Lou
