Locals DJ Edwards and Kalyn Oyer host music podcast, The Fringe
The Fringe, a local podcast founded and hosted by City Paper writer Kalyn Oyer and D.J. Edwards, celebrates the launch of its third season with a party at Kudu Coffee & Craft Beer (4 Vanderhorst St.) on Thurs. July 14 at 7 p.m.
The shindig will feature performances by She Returns from War, Rico & Miranda (featuring Jenna Desmond and Corey Campbell of SUSTO), and Cole Collins, all of which will be recorded live for the podcast.
The Fringe debuted back in February, and an episode typically involves at least an hour of brand new music released within the previous seven days.
Music at the launch party kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $5, and refreshments will be available for purchase, including regular and vegan hotdogs from Hot Links food truck.
Chucktown Music Group (CtMG) founder and Blowfish Mark Bryan will host Live at the Charleston Music Hall, a new ETV Radio program full of interviews and performances from award-winning musicians, including progressive bluegrass artist Sam Bush and South Carolinian Edwin McCain.
The first show, which also serves as a pilot for an upcoming television series, airs Fri. Feb. 13 at 10 p.m. on ETV Radio’s classical service and Sat. Feb. 14 at 10 p.m. on the news service. The programs will also stream live from etvradio.org.
The second installment of the show will be recorded at the Charleston Music Hall on May 2 with a live audience, although the guests artists haven't been revealed as of yet.
CtMG offers various services for musicians, like music licensing, song registration, and consultation.
Boyd Stough, co-founder of theFix.fm is now offering to teach DJ hopefuls how to run the setup at the Avondale-based online radio station. “We want to have an open-door policy for folks who want to come in and DJ whenever they feel like it — except during scheduled programming, of course” Stough says. Training is free and should only take about an hour.
Local online radio station TheFIX.fm just announced its crowdfunding campaign that lets fans pre-order shirts bearing the The Fix’s logo — a smiling skull wearing headphones.
The Avondale-based radio station lost one of its founders Brad Cooper after a fatal car accident on July 4. Station co-founder and friend Boyd Stough says that purchasing a shirt will fund the independent station, but it will also be a visual show of support for Cooper and his vision for Charleston radio. Run by local DJs with Charleston listeners in mind, The FIX first went live in May in order to retaliate “against corporate radio tyranny,” Stough says.
The tees are $30, and at least 25 need to be ordered by the July 24 deadline. You can get yours by visiting the crowdfunding site here.
