Secret Colours on Live From Studio 10 (aired April 2014)
98 plays

Chicago’s Secret Colours have been generating a national buzz around the release of their 2-part album Positive Distractions and their sound steeped in 60’s psychedelia and 90’s Britpop. With new album and mostly new members, comes a new fresh approach to songwriting but there’s still plenty of reverb on jangly guitar riffs and spacey organ sounding keys to make it one of Secret Colours’ best.

Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org, and features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond. One hour of music and interview, all live. The show is hosted by Jesse Menendez, produced by Fyodor Sakhnovski and engineered by Adam Yoffe. Subscribe to the podcast here: bitly.com/vocaloLFS10

My name is Silvia and I’m a hater.

Hi, I’m Silvia, Managing Director of Vocalo.

I often find myself saying things like:
  • I hate the way big media portrays our communities.
  • I hate the way that commercial radio stations play the same songs over and over again.
  • I hate that big media doesn’t engage our communities on issues that impact them on a day-to-day basis.
  • I hate that big media doesn’t celebrate our cultural diversity.
  • I’m a hater.
But let me tell you what I do love. Vocalo.

Vocalo is a special type of media. We’re the change we wish to see in our media landscape. We’re a service dedicated to engaging our communities with thoughtful discussions and diverse cultural expressions. We create our programming with you (and us) in mind.

If you love Vocalo too, I’m asking you to show us some love. I need 150 people to step up for Vocalo by this Friday and make a donation. We’ve already heard from 47, and now I need to hear from you. 

Plus, if you make a $4 a month donation, we’ll show you some love by giving you a ticket to our celebratory end of pledge drive event this Friday night, the #hatersball. The party will take place at the Chop Shop and will feature music from JC Brooks, the Vocalo DJ Collective and DJ Ayana Contreras. You’ll also get to nosh on some delicious food and enjoy craft cocktails from Johnny Costello of the Berkshire Room.

Most importantly, you’ll get to meet the most dynamic team in public media. We love what we do, and hope you do too.

Love,

Silvia
