im an ABSOLUTE sucker for these LIVE PERFORMANCE series distributed on YOUTUBE and sponsored by everyone from INSTRUMENT MANUFACTURERS, TELEVISION PROGRAMS, RECORD LABELS, CONCERT VENUES to even LOCAL RADIO STATIONS. in the mold of SEATTLE's KEXP 90.3FM i recently came across CENTRAL OHIO's CD 102.5FM (now apparently 92.9FM) out of COLUMBUS and their ongoing LIVE FROM THE BIG ROOM series of LIVE MUSIC performances by EMERGING and ESTABLISHED ALTERNATIVE ROCK and INDIE ROCK artists. past NOTABLE participants include THE JOY FORMIDABLE, LAURA JANE GRACE, THE KILLS, ARCTIC MONKEYS, CSS, THE BETHS and SURFER BLOOD among many others.
the sound mix isnt as professional as KEXP, which is the gold standard, but these performances are definitely IMPASSIONED and most definitely worth checking out.
