The Listen Local Show, hosted by longtime local music supporter Cathryn Beeks, will begin airing on KNSJ 89.1FM and streaming on KNSJ.org every Thursday at 8pm, with a rebroadcast each Saturday at 10pm, starting March 5th, 2015. The two hour show will feature local unsigned music of various genres plus news and guests from the local music community in San Diego.
Beeks, who has hosted live music events through her production company "Listen Local SD" since 2003, left her position as host of The Homegrown Hour on 102.1FM in October of 2014 in order to produce a longer show with more variety. The Listen Local Show podcast airs weekly on Sundays on ListenLocalRadio.com. The new shows will be archived and available for streaming there, too.
"I'm incredibly excited to introduce KNSJ's listeners to our local music community and honored to be part of such a progressive station" says Beeks. "When I learned their goal was to provide music entirely from San Diego, 100% of the time, I was hooked. My recording studio is located in Crest near their Descanso tower, so the fact that they're near my neighborhood makes the whole thing that much sweeter".
Besides offering her radio show each week, Beeks will be working with KNSJ this year to create local music events and festivals showcasing San Diego's talent while raising awareness and funds. "I'm looking forward to helping keep this commercial free, community radio station rocking in the free world".
