In a world where new music can seem as ubiquitous and readily available as digital air, we still believe in the trustworthy recommendation of a living human being at hand to sort the weeds from the grasses. As you may or may not have noticed, KRCC has a new music reviewer to help you wade through, and appreciate, some of our many new releases. His name is Delvin Neugebauer and he’s written reviews for Trouser Press for many years and just became a volunteer DJ here at the station. Look out for his reviews at KRCC.org each week. His first two are HERE and HERE and you can listen to him speak briefly about his thoughts on music and reviews below.
