Musician Adds DJ to His Resume
Local musician Jason Feddy began a day job this week, taking on the five-hour, midday time slot of Laguna Beach’s FM station, KX 93.5.
Feddy, a local singer-songwriter known for his regular gigs around town and his “Shakespeare in the Park” project, earlier held down one of the station’s weekly evening programs.
“Jason was the obvious choice to take over the midday role,” said the station’s Program Director Tyler Russell. “His popularity in town and his irreverent, hilarious personality on-air will make him a joy to work with, and to listen to.”
“When Tyler asked me to join the daytime team at the station, I considered it carefully for about a nanosecond,” said Feddy. “I’m honored and excited. My wife is delighted to be getting me out of the house too.”
Feddy will feature an all-requests lunch hour segment starting at noon each weekday. Reach him at 949 715-4859.
Fantasy Concert Set Broadcasted
Lagunapalooza Fantasy Concert is broadcast weekly on Saturdays from 6 to 7 p.m. on KX 93.5 FM.
This concert series is the brain-child of local resident Rebecca Apodaca (aka Bassmama Becky) and RJ Catano of A & D Music music in Lake Forest.
Music from different genres and generations are represented. Listeners are asked to submit four to six songs per artist to firstname.lastname@example.org The two disc jockeys will pick one winner and put together the audio tracks of the songs for the broadcast.
Counting on Kickstart Capital
KX 93.5 will attempt to launch a webseries about its story and indie music, the station announced.
The station hopes to raise $25,000 by Sunday, June 16 in a Kickstarter campaign, which requires the aspirant to raise all the cash or receive nothing.
Tyler Russell, program director and founder, envisions a music-based reality show of less than 10 minute webisodes that will showcase indie talent that isn’t widely recognized through live in-studio performances and interviews. “We want to show Laguna the way it really is through our station: creative, artistic and eccentric,” he said.
