Jessie Skirball and I discovered the wondrous Bonny Doon album “Longwave” on our CD review date for 90.5 KCSU FM. Together we discovered the new music of Bonny Doon in a relaxing and intriguing fashion. Music is a insightful way to connect with someone, which makes discovering new music together terrific for a night. In the photos below is Skirball’s and I’s review of “Longwave”.

Anyone can do a CD review for 90.5 KCSU FM, and even better it is an easy process. It is so easy that all the steps can be described in the minute long video below. 

The longest any CD stays in rotation is four weeks. This means that there is a heavy demand for new CDs to be reviewed so they can go into active rotation. Anyone can help in the effort to keep a deep rotation. All that is required is to walk in to Student Media in the basement of the Lory Student Center (LSC) and ask to do a CD review. Once, there choose from a vast array of labels and make sure to check out the CD.

All there is left to do is to listen to the album and review it! In the review sheet it will ask you for the in the genre, if it is FCC clean (the rules for that can be found here), and in ramp time, which is how long that it takes for the singing to start.  

Skirball’s Take: “It was fun to discuss songs because then you kinda get a feel of the other persons music taste and their creative side . . . I would recommend it to a friend, no hesitation.”
