Old school, on the radio

Old-school hip-hop will soon have a new home in Dane County.

And true to its roots, you’ll be hearing classics from such artists as Run DMC, NWA and De La Soul just like you did back in the day — on the radio.

With a hopeful start date of Nov. 1, local talk radio host Derrell Connor will launch “The Boombox” on community radio station The Sun, featuring a regular set of shows playing classic hip-hop from the ’80s ’90s and early s. He hopes to eventually spin those segments into a stand-alone station.

“This format has been pretty successful around the country — there are a number of stations that have switched formats to classic hip-hop, and it’s really worked for them,” he says, citing Boom 92 in Houston as an example.

The success of the classic hip-hop format elsewhere is due largely to its appeal to the middle-aged listener demographic, a known sweet spot for advertisers. “When those who are now 30, 40 and 45 years old were growing up and in college, this is what they listened to,” says Connor.

Connor echoes what other rap fans have long said about the city’s hip-hop radio offerings: “We have Jamz here, but that’s not a real, true hip-hop station.” The station plays current pop and rap hits. ( WORT also offers a couple of rap shows on very late weekend nights.)

While streaming music services have tried to meet the needs of old school hip-hop heads, a set of radio shows and, eventually, a station can do better, he adds.

“There really isn’t a difference between Pandora, Spotify and Apple Music, so what would set us apart from those streaming services is that this would be local,” says Connor.

He also points to the limits of the streaming services’ algorithms and how they often lead to looped playlists, generally filled with songs that did well in sales or on the charts.

“With this, we would have DJs and hosts actually digging through the crates, finding a great track from Outkast, for example, that [was never released as a single but] you loved and haven’t heard for ages,” explains Connor.

Another benefit that live, local DJs will have is to be able to reach back into the rap archives for hidden tracks, B-sides and remixes and mix a capella verses over different beats — something the streaming services can’t do. “You’re playing something that other stations aren’t playing and that you can’t find on the streaming sites,” he says.

But to do that, The Boombox will have to stock its shelves “with a massive catalog of everything from digital songs to CDs and even vinyl,” says Connor.

That, of course, will cost money. Heading up that end of things is Ald. Maurice Cheeks. “I frequently speak publicly about how important it is for individuals to put in the work to make our dreams come true,” says Cheeks. “So, instead of just volunteering to toss in a few dollars, I’ve agreed to help lead the launch of the Kickstarter campaign.” That campaign will launch within a couple of weeks.

In all, Connor estimates the team will need about $15, to build a solid song archive and take care of other essentials as they come up. For future funding, he wants to build a business model similar to that of public radio where you donate and get a sticker, hat or shirt in return.

“It’s one thing to put this together and another to make sure it’s sustainable,” he says.

But Connor thinks the team he’s building can make it work. After floating the idea to some friends and on social media, as well as creating an online survey to gauge interest, “the response has been overwhelming,” he says. “People started reaching out to me, asking what they could do to help.”

“I called on the local hip-hop community, and they’ve been extremely helpful,” he says of the offers for volunteers and expertise he’s received, noting specifically that “the UCAN [Urban Community Arts Network] folks are all over this.”

So far, he’s tapped local promoter and artist manager Mark “ShaH” Evans to do a regular segment and will also explore a request show.

While they’re still hammering out the details with The Sun, Connor says The Boombox will likely start with shows on Monday and Wednesday mornings a.m.; Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons p.m. and maybe a couple of weekend night slots. They hope to have a website (www.theboomboxmadison.com) up by this weekend.

The Sun’s signal will reach Sun Prairie, Waunakee, Waterloo and into downtown Madison, while live streaming via their website will be possible from anywhere.

“Madison is long overdue for something like this,” says Connor. “It’s crazy that it doesn’t exist already.”

Madison Beer \

Join us every other Friday, starting July 2 through October 8, on the block of State Street for Mad Lit, a new free concert series featuring live music and highlighting local artists, and businesses of color. The series will run from 8 PM until 11 PM and will include pop-up shops, visual exhibits, and community-led workshops.

The COVID pandemic has negatively impacted State Street businesses and culture, and this new event series is a way to help revitalize the block of State Street. Although this area has not always been a welcoming space for people of color, the social justice murals that went up during the summer and fall of brought a new and diverse group of people downtown — some for the first time.

Mad Lit builds on that momentum by highlighting music, art, and small businesses run by people of color, using the outdoor spaces around the block of State Street for fun, inclusive events designed to bring the community together.

 

SCHEDULE:

July 2 — Sammy/J. Vocal, Crown Vic, and DJ ACE 
July 16 — Orquestra SalSol Del Mad & DJ Chamo

Now hear this: College radio lets students run the airwaves
by Jessica Miller, PortalWisconsin.org

College campuses across the state are providing students with professional training in broadcasting through student-run radio stations. These stations are run almost entirely by students, giving them the opportunity to learn every aspect of radio from budget planning to sound board operation. Members of the stations pride themselves on giving their listeners something new.

University of Wisconsin-Madison station WSUM FM says it offers "innovative radio for independent minds." The station tries to introduce music not found on other frequencies, such as experimental, new wave, punk, underground, local and independent. WSUM has been on the airwaves for less than two years. Prior to gaining a radio tower, the station was broadcast over the Internet and, in its earliest days, through a transmitter in the residence halls.

WSUM music director Anna Filipek said that because the station is so new to the airwaves, "It is a very exciting time for WSUM. The station is right in the middle of a major growth period and there is a lot to look forward to."

Katty Juarez plays Latin music in Studio A of WSUM, the University of Wisconsin-Madison student radio station. Madison-area listeners can tune in at FM.WSUM has a staff of students and is funded by the university, fundraising events and donations. Radio shows vary from talk programs, literature, music, opinion, film and sports. WSUM has live announcers at each Madison Mallards baseball game.

Listeners within a mile radius of downtown Madison can tune into WSUM, but the station eventually crosses signals southeast of Madison with WSUW at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, which shares the same FM frequency.

WSUW has been on the air since Its tower is situated on top of Hyer Hall, which is located on the Whitewater campus and is also the tallest building in the city. The station is known as "The Edge" and is an independent alternative music station. Listeners can enjoy a variety of music on WSUW from hip-hop and reggae to rock and heavy metal. WSUW also offers a political science talk show, hosted by professors in the political science department, and Hawk Talk, a sports talk show that covers university sports.

WSUW has staff members and is funded primarily by the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Station disc jockey Josh Goldberg said, "The production facilities are outstanding and we have very knowledgeable people creating our promos, breakers and liners and other bits for on-air use. We easily had the top show in the state last year with the Pete & Joe Morning Show. They became known all over campus. It was phenomenal."

The skills gained from working in college radio give students the opportunity to be professionals, according to Randall Davidson of Wisconsin Public Radio. Davidson spent over three years working at WRST at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and said his experience in college radio proved that "hard work got you ahead."

Says Davidson, "The UW-Oshkosh station really provides a training ground for students, by giving them engineering skills that will help students who want to work in either commercial or public radio." Davidson did not join WRST intending to make a career out of radio, but because of his involvement, he ultimately changed his career path from business to broadcasting.

Davidson said WRST is a quality radio station because of the sense of "listener priority." He said, "I think a lot of people dismiss college radio, and are many times right to do so, partly because many stations try to serve themselves rather than the listener." WRST, according to Davidson, offers programming for the listener and not the disc jockey. By coordinating some of its time slots with Wisconsin Public Radio, WRST often emulates a public radio station, giving the listener a variety of programming.

Davidson said quality programming is important in a college radio station because, as he says, "College stations are sometimes the only alternative voice left."

Want to tune in? Here's a sampling of Wisconsin college stations:

Beloit College: WBCR FM. Soul, gospel, metal and talk.

Lawrence University: FM

UW-Madison: WSUM FM. Underground, local and independent music, as well as talk and public affairs programming.

UW-Oshkosh: WRST FM. Coordinating programs with WPR, and playing fresh new music.

UW-Parkside: WIPZ AM

UW-Stevens Point: WWSP FM. New age, acoustic, jazz, Latin, industrial and public affairs talk.

UW-Whitewater: WSUW FM. Talk and independent alternative music.
