Radio UTD Playlist from XMU Student Exchange...Up Next Chico State

Satellite radio station XMU continues to feature college radio stations every Sunday (1-3pm Pacific, 4-6pm Eastern) on their show "the Student Exchange." Last Sunday, XMU fave Radio UTD, the Internet-only station from University of Texas at Dallas in Richardson, Texas, was on the air sharing their selections. I caught a bit of the show and this time they had a team of DJs talking about the music.

I'm pretty excited to see that they played one of my all-time favorite bands Beat Happening! Not only that, the track they chose, "Red Head Walking," has been my 2-year-old daughter's theme song ever since she was born, because it's such a great song about bad ass redhead girls. I took my daughter to see an all-ages Calvin Johnson (Beat Happening, K Records, and so many other projects) show in San Francisco last summer and I told Calvin about "Red Head Walking" being her theme song and he seemed pleased. He was super sweet to her and signed her CD. All in all, a fantastic first concert for the little lady. Lucky girl, she saw a music show at a much younger age than I ever did. And it was Calvin Johnson!! So, right on Radio UTD for featuring one of my music heroes.

Next week XMU will feature KCSC from Chico State. And, if you want to try to get your station on XMU in the fall, email . On to the playlist:
