Common Rotation on the radio... [17 Apr 2008|08:54am]

[ mood | content ]


Tune in to Reverend Kate's Theme of the Week for her annual Pledge Drive Buffy The Vampire Slayer theme show!

9pm-10pm Pacific Time on KPSU! Listen worldwide at www.kpsu.org, in Portland Oregon at 1450am, or on the Portland State University campus at 98.3FM! Or download the show from the website for up to 6 weeks after it airs!

Reverend Kate plays songs from the Buffy and Angel TV soundtracks, songs from the musical, Buffyverse actors musical releases, like James Marsters, Anthony Stewart Head, Common Rotation, Ghost of the Robot, Christian Kane, AND songs inspired by the Buffyverse from rocker fans Automatic Hotel and Abney Park! And every once in a while you may hear a gem like one of Anthony Stewart Head and Amber Benson's performances at the Rocky Horror 25th Anniversary celebration!

Reverend Kate has been exposing the world to Buffy-related music on KPSU since March 2005.

If you'd like to donate James Marsters new CD Like a Waterfall or any CDs by Kane, or a newer copy of Once More With Feeling, or any UK versions of the soundtracks, OR you know a band that has recorded Buffy-inspired music, email the Rev at reverendkate@gmail.com

KPSU is a non-profit, student run radio station featuring student DJs and community volunteer DJs like Reverend Kate, a radio professional since 1990. Funding is provided in part by student fees, but also by donations from the community, which helps KPSU update equipment, the music archives, and more! KPSU features live performances by local and national acts and a wide variety of programming.

This years pledge drive we are hoping to raise at least $10,000 so that we can bring our 1980s and 90s-era studio equipment into the 21st century (or at least a bit closer!).

TONIGHT! April 17th! 9-10pm Pacific Time! Reverend Kate's Theme of the Week featuring the Buffyverse! www.kpsu.org/1450AM/98.5FM

~Reverend Kate~

Additional Web Info:
