Columbus may be losing independent alt rocker CD101 to Christian talk or music ⇢

Via Joel Oliphint at Donewaiting:

CU‘s message board alerted readers to an article posted today at RadioSurivor.com titled “Columbus may be losing independent alt rocker CD101 to Christian talk or music.” An excerpt:

Columbus, Ohio’s WWCD, which has been broadcasting with a modern rock format under the CD101 moniker since August of 1990, appears to be nearing the end of the line. RadioInsight.com reports Christian-focused Salem Media purchased two domain names that mirror CD101’s current frequency, 102.5 FM: “Ryan Moran, Operations Manager of Salem’s Christian Talk 880 WRFD registered 1025TheFish.com and FMTalk1025.com on behalf of Salem Media of Ohio, the licensee of WRFD. The former would seem to indicate Salem’s Christian AC brand, the latter a Conservative Talk mix using the usual array of Salem’s in-house syndication and other syndicated hosts not currently cleared in the market.”

WWCD marketing director Nate Ellis responded to the CU post, saying, “We have an LMA [Local Marketing/Management Agreement] in place with Southeast Ohio Broadcasting, which we have been operating under since WWCD started broadcasting from 102.5. A sale of the station would not affect the LMA, and WWCD looks forward to continuing to provide independent radio to central Ohio listeners for years to come. Unfortunately, that’s all I can say on the matter at this time.”

(That last line sound a bit ominous to anyone else?)

I got my roeVy Demons EP in the mail today.

The attention to detail is pretty impressive.

Real talk.

Tumblr’s hatred of Columbus Day is really fucking my “Columbus” tracked tag.

Ohio Film + Music Festival ⇢

Running from October 6-9, 2011, the Ohio Film Music Festival is a curated, four-day event highlighting Ohio-native filmmakers and musicians. Curated by OFMF founders Eric Mahoney and Scott Johnson, the fest will showcase a diverse array of creative talent Ohio has produced past, present, and future—from auteur filmmaker Jim Jarmusch to acclaimed producer/DJ/musician RJD2 and internationally-recognized bands like Heartless Bastards and New Bomb Turks. Looking forward, the OFMF plans to develop into an annual event and platform for exhibiting and developing future work from Ohio artists.

I should have mentioned this before now, but the Ohio Film + Music Festival is taking place here in Columbus this weekend. The Arena Grand Theater will be screening a selection of films, documentaries, and shorts from Ohio-born/Ohio-based filmmakers; and the festival has three nights of music from some killer Ohio musicians occurring at a couple different venues in town. 

Last night’s set took place at The Summit and featured Cincinnati’s Buffalo Killers, along with Nick Tolford and Co., Main Street Gospel, and Eye, all of Columbus.

Tonight’s show will take place at Skully’s. Columbus punks New Bomb Turks, Cincinnati ex-pats Heartless Bastards, Cleveland’s Cloud Nothings, and Dayton/Cincinnati duo R. Ring (featuring The Breeders’ Kelley Deal) are all slated to perform.

Skully’s will also host Saturday’s show, with Columbus native RJD2, RJ’s new “psychedelic soul” duo Icebird, and Columbus rappers Blueprint and Envelope all taking the stage.

After almost a year and $1,500 of paint, Andrew Kern says his “Cowtown Culture” mural is within a couple weeks of being finished. The Tuttle Park mural depicts different walks of life in Columbus and embraces its “cowtown” moniker.
