State In The Real – Penn State Music Scene

Indie Radio: The September Master Playlist

Spotify playlist below

The beginning of September noted the debut of my radio show on The Lion 90.7fm- a Wednesday night 7-9 PM slot that my friend/co-host/co-DJ Gabe Silverman and I took over. Gabe and I try our best to get the most out of the two hours, bringing listeners what we consider to be fresh, inventive, and just purely likeable music. Betwixt songs, we discuss concert experiences, upcoming music news, or anything else in the music realm we find interesting at the moment. It’s so dang fun. Tune in Wednesday evenings on 90.7fm or online at and we’d be happy to have you!

What I have brought with me is our master playlist from last month- a good 55 songs that we played on air. If you heard them already, feel free to give them another listen. If you missed us, check ‘em out and tell us what you think on the various social media tools you have been granted in this glorious modern age. Here’s the playlist:
