apparently indie 103.1 in l.a is being taken off of the air today.
if that’s true it’s a tragedy. indie is arguably the best commercial station in the country. l.a will still have the truly amazing kcrw, but it genuinely makes me said that indie is being taken off of the air.
every time i’ve gone up to indie to be interviewed i’ve invariably thought, ‘they let a radio station do this?’ from david lynch’s weather reports (he looks out the window), to steve jones’ show (where he plays what he wants to play, or just talks. or doesn’t talk, and just sits there and whistles), to suicide girls (which i just did, and which was a really fun interview), to joe escalante’s morning show it really is/was an amazing station. i wish i’d known they were shutting it down, i would’ve done what i could to help.
