Welcome to issue #58 of Cosmik Debris Magazine. This month we've got the
beginnings of a
theme going here. We've always had a touch of radio in our pages, through John
Tape Hiss Interviews, which are transcribed from his radio show, and through the
that about half
of us here at Cosmik have worked in radio at one time or another. Finally, our
hour-long audio programs, which are broadcast only on
the Internet, puts us out there in the wild wild west known as Internet
it's an exciting field worth watching. This month, we talked to Gavin editor
on-air personality Quincy McCoy about the
good old days when radio was fun to listen to, how we can get it back, and how
can lead the way. Next month we'll bring you the story of an Internet
on the rise, The Daily Feed. To go along with these articles, we're adding a
page of links
to excellent radio stations you can access over the Net, and we will add to that
month, hopefully leading you to your new favorite radio stations. If you know
or other kinds of audio content sites that we should know about, please drop a
email@example.com and let us know.
That's about it for now. See you next month.
