Editorial: November 1996
Well, I was saving up for a vicious attack on the music media and other related marketing stooges this month but I was just too busy to actually devise any witty prose this month. It is a good thing that I didn't because the following article was printed in the November 11th newspaper and summed it up perfectly for me.
It looks like someone finally shot MTV in the ass and perhaps they will finally start paying attention to those artists who really have talent. Either that, or once again they will become manipulated by the corporate sharks at the big record labels.
In other news, Sonic-Boom broke 100,000 hits last month for the first time. It seems that this magazine is so popular that it has been receiving a 10% increase of readership over the last six months. This has me floored and ready to continue exposing new, underground, and breaking artists in this genre of music.
You'll notice the increase in interviews and music reviews as a result of our increased visibility. Hopefully we will still be able to provide the same level of quality service in the future, while still increasing our depth and volume.
Also if you happen to reside in Portland, Oregon stay on the look out for me on KPSU 1450 AM on Thursdays from 11pm-12am. Occasionally I get to guest DJ, and will eventually have my own show and timeslot come January. The cable access music video show is slated to begin production the last week of November, and begin airplay sometime in late December or Early January. We are only waiting on approval of a weekly timeslot and the technical skills of my cohort prior to beginning the show.
Anyways, enough of my psycho babble.
