The First and Only Episode of Live! From Planet Zok

We finally have edited down the first and only episode of Live! From Planet Zok.

The opening is a little strange. The training for Purdue’s Student Radio consisted of standing behind someone who was controlling the board and SAM program saying, “Here’s Deck A. Here’s Deck B. Drop stuff here. Make a playlist. Be sure to turn it on auto when you are done. Blah. Blah. Blah.” So we had no idea what was happening. Luckily, we figured it out. Enjoy!

The first half of the show’s set list, which consisted only of open music, was:

Band Song Album
Enola Gay Nepal Soldier Single
Pink Stainless Tail Free Software Song Single
Neale & the Fauns You Left the Water Running History of Fen Punk Vol. III
(Break) The Fire Dept. Sean Breeze Elpee For Another Time
Its Always Last Tuesday Somewhere Paranoia Oktoberfest

After the first part, we played some Pavarotti, Alejandro Sanz, Dashboard Confessional, chatted a bit, and then went off the air…seemingly for good. It was a fun ride. Hope you enjoyed it. We may do another show if Rez can ever find the time.

Live from Planet Zok – A New Project

The Media Collective is preparing a new project to begin this coming semester on Purdue Student Radio: Live from Planet Zok.

The show will be a mix of music, improvisation, and audio from the web site. There will also be a segment where listeners can call in and share their thoughts with the topic of the week.

We will be posting flyers around campus to generate awareness of this new project, but we will also need your help spreading the word as well. Tell your friends they will have a reason to listen to the student run radio this fall.

Here is our first design:
