Vidya has had her radio show since freshman fall. “It’s a hundred percent for me,” she confessed about the show, “and then I get like 3-8 listeners, haha.”
Vidya’s weekly radio show is called Vidya Killed the Radio Show. She boasts about the title, “It’s the single wittiest thing I’ve ever produced in my life and I think it will probably stand as my pinnacle. It has many layers: obviously it’s a cultural reference to Video Killed the Radio Star, and it’s also a reference to the fact that I play alternative music, because, you know, I have slaughtered the radio “star”, and I’m paying attention to the debris. Haha, well I guess it only has two layers, which is still more than enough.”
Recently, Vidya’s been listening to the alternative group Thao & the Get Down Stay Down and the English band Money.
Listen to Vidya Killed the Radio Star on Sundays at 1pm.
“In an ideal world, college radio can best reflect what local broadcasting should strive for: freeform programming that’s community organized and unentangled in market-based obligation. It is also a continually replenishing talent pool for the industry at large, and every part of the musical ecosystem can count former college radio DJs among their staff.” Read more here: http://pitchfork.com/…/10018-does-college-radio-even-matte…/
