q and also a :: Newtown Radio
Mark Brinda of Newtown Radio sent us these answers to our questions in this next installment of q and also a.
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?
a: Now I Understand by TWIN GUNS is the last song I had playing on my phone.
q: What is the first album you remember purchasing?
a: Appetite for Destruction (on cassette).
Editor’s note: There are no easily accessible streams of Appetite, so here’s a cover…
q: What is the last album that you purchased?
a: Moodie by Yuno…I love his music…excited for him signing with SUB POP.
q: What is your favorite memory of experiencing music in a live setting?
a: McCarren Park Pool Parties…so many awesome shows, so much dodge ball, so much slip n slide.
q: What are the best and worst things about running and internet radio station in 2018?
a: Best are all of the interesting musicians, DJs, labels, venues, and bloggers (!!!) that I get to meet and collaborate with.
Worst is all of the technology, from maintaining the website to the audio equipment….fixing things that aren’t working as they’re supposed to is no fun.
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?
a: I’m really excited about Yeezy 500s, Overwatch, and flossing…all at the same time when possible.
