It’s October already…this year has gone by like a blur.
Well, listeners, today for you I have Marissa Simpson. Marissa graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a focus on both jewelry making and metal working. She was patient enough to explain some of the processes, along with her personal concepts when creating. I hope you enjoy the interview and slight glimpse into my adolescence (or at least adolescent music taste, with the closing track.)

To welcome this month synopsis with earthy colors is an interview featuring Marissa Simpson. Marissa graduated from EKU with a focus on metal working and jewelry making. A few Sundays ago, we had a pleasant chat..laughing, sipping tea, getting to know each other, and each other’s work. I think it’s safe to say most of us don’t much about metal working; this would be a good time to learn!
Don’t forget to listen in on Wednesday using whatever method you choose.
This week’s creator is Benjamin Cook. Ben graduated with a degree in painting from the University of Louisville, but has expanded his horizons due to feelings of limitation with the traditional form of paint/canvas work. He works through his love/hate relationship with technology and the changing climate of how art is consumed, in interesting way.
Be sure to listen in on Wednesday, to get a clearer idea about this new and innovated artist.

If you’re into absurd comedy, Sci-fi, or comics, you’ll definitely want to check out this Wednesday’s episode of Blind Date. I’ll be talking with the dynamic duo known as Weirdo Beardos. For those of you who’ve kept up with the show, you’ll recognize one of the voices…along with new comer, Tristan Palmer.

Today’s interview, as you may have heard, was with Sylvanus Hudson and Craig Duncan. Both of them are a part of a collective known as Saving Our Style; a group founded on the idea of preserving one’s integrity and uniqueness…and sneaker collecting.
Each member brings something interesting to the table and are constantly collaborating with one another, as well as outside contributors. SOS is heavily involved in the community through art and outreach programs.
