Music rags and papers

I’ve always loved music and as a lad in the UK I was subscribed to…

Melody Maker and Sounds Mag got a look in too, where did you pre Web get your sounds info from?

MTV local radio. But “local radio” was in the epicenter of american entertainment.

I guess it wasn’t such a source of info or news, but I’d always look at what was promoted and see if I knew who they were or not, or cross out who I didn’t care for.

WLIR, Long Island Radio was a NYC ish radio station, which on a good day you could tune into on the Jersey side of the Hudson. Some times I would park my car on the Palisades just so I could tune in. You could get certain college stations in the radius of a few blocks but back in the day This was the only real radio station for new music in the entire NYC area.
