Just got back from an awesome weekend in Chicago! Tapas, art at MCA, discussing mythology with random strangers, and my very first trip to IKEA (meshing my home decor aesthetic with my wife’s proved a lot harder than I thought.) Along with that, been making/taking calls and emailing preparing for my first Blind Date event. Not to mention out there interviewing, day jobbing, and other general life rituals…chore, hygiene, living.
Coming up this Wednesday is a Skype interview I had with Alexia Serpentini. Alexia and I chatted for over an hour, but worry not, I cut it down a little. We kind of torn down the ‘fourth wall’ so to speak, and at one point, it almost seems like I’m the one getting interview. Blind Date seems to get more open and honest each week I do it. It’s interesting how different podcast can be from what I did with radio…in positive ways. Sometimes it’s nice to just be yourself, having a real conversation. Anyway, I feel like you’ll gain much insight into Alexia’s character after this interview. Her strength as an artist. Her strength as a person. She’s an incredibly thoughtful individual who strives to connect with, and help, others.
Sorry for the late notice everyone but things have been a little hectic. Technical difficulties, RAM, Memory, what have you and generally getting things in order. The incidents involving tomorrow’s episode has prompted me to start slowing treating myself to some equipment upgrades. Always improving!
Tomorrow’s episode will feature the ever versatile Lindsay Sant. She is an artist of multiple disciplines, an ArtxFM Louisville co-host of the show Alien Jingles, and Special Events Manager for Salvation Army (hopefully I got that title right..sorry Lindsay).
If the opening sounds rushed, it’s because it is slightly. Due to those difficulties mentioned above, there had to be some major cuts to the interview. Time was limited, I’m disappointed to report…a glitch in the software.
Below is a song that had to be cut short…a special treat for Lindsay, in the same vein as the stuff you can hear on Alien Jingles.
The summer seems to be speeding by us. And so many great art related events going on around town. Many of which have been sponsored by the Louisville Artists Syndicate.
For this week’s episode, I spoke with Stacey Reason of the Syndicate; she offered up the story, mission, and future plans of the group. Their main aims as a collective are to give young artists the chance they need to get their preverbal foot in the door & to erase the barriers between artists and the rest of the community.

This week’s episode of Blind Date features two members of the Louisville collective, Saving Our Style. They tackle everything from music and art, to community outreach and fashion…Listen as I talk with Sylvanus Hudson and Craig Duncan, due to be posted here on the blog Wednesday.
For those who haven’t heard, Blind Date is temporarily blog only due to the ArtxFM’s Board decision on prerecorded programs, and my own personal work schedule which hinders me from coming into the studio.
Don’t worry, I’m looking into other methods of broadcasting. Seriously.
