Show of the Week: Rad Tunage
Written by Brooke Forrest on April 18, 2017
Every week of programming we will be highlighting the Black Squirrel Radio Show of the Week
This week’s show is Rad Tunage
Rad Tunage airs every Sunday from 8pm to 10pm. Hosts Bella Bowman and Alyse Nelson have been providing rad tunes to Black Squirrel Radio for three semesters! Their show has been very popular even achieving the top 2 spot last semester!
Describe your show:
We talk about anything. From what we had for dinner to new album drops. We play indie/alt, rap, pop punk, folk, and even the classics.
How did you come up with your show concept:
We named our show after a playlist Bella made on Spotify. We just decided to be ourselves on radio and hope people liked what we have to say.
What do you do in your free time:
Bella: Record shopping, intramural softball, work at Target, hang at Scribbles.
Alyse: Record shopping, hang at Scribbles, take photos.
Who are some of your favorite bands/artists:
Bella: The Beatles, The Lumineers, Kanye, Chance the Rapper, The Front Bottoms.
Alyse: Ohio Weather Band, The Lumineers, The Head and the Heart, The Beatles, Nat King Cole.
Favorite show moment of the semester:
Getting show of the week this week!
Describe each other:
Bella: Alyse is super chill. She’s always really goofy too, like she dances in the studio while we’re playing music.
Alyse: I’d say Bella is pretty rad (ha see what I did there). She’s always trying to make me laugh when we’re on and off air.
Favorite local artists:
Bella: McCafferty and The Moxies.
Alyse: Ohio Weather Band, Colorblind and The Moxies
How do you find new artists:
Bella: I search around on Spotify most of the time. I use my Shazam app too if I hear a song in public that I don’t know and enjoy.
Alyse: Definitely Spotify, I use the discover weekly playlist and look up related artists to my favorite bands.
If you could be any sandwich, what would you be and why:
Bella: A bacon turkey bravo from Panera because it’s my favorite sandwich of all time.
Alyse: A veggie sandwich (because I’m a vegetarian).
