Radio program debuts on KPNI

Listening to the radio just got more interesting.

Junior Dawson Shamblin has started a program for KPNI SMU radio aptly titled “Radio Cure.” The show began airing on Sept. 15 every Monday night from 11 to 12 p.m.

“Radio Cure” can be streamed through SMU’s online website, making it easily accessible to listeners as well as a unique new way to hear music.

Shamblin created “Radio Cure” as an effort to positively enhance the music scene at SMU while interacting with the student body.

“I started the show as way to have fun. I have all this music I feel everyone would love if they just heard it a couple of times,” Shamblin said.

Shamblin enlisted friend Phillip Maxwell as entertainment coordinator while Shamblin acts as DJ during the hour segment.

“I do it because it’s an interactive way to hear and try to understand new music, like how to understand the direction of pop as well as look at the roots of progressive music, and enjoy the relationship between the two,” Maxwell said.

Maxwell and Shamblin want “Radio Cure” to be a primary advocate of spreading a wide range of music to SMU listeners while making the program an active experience.

The hour segment offers anything but boredom. Listeners can call in and request any song, or voice their opinion on a issues ranging from politics to the ramifications of too much pulp in orange juice.

“Radio Cure” also offers free ticket giveaways to concert venues Granada Theater and House of Blues.

“After the show aired we were pleasantly surprised at the spectrum of people that called in,” Dawson said.

“Radio Cure” is a new innovation to the SMU scene designed to spread music through the student body. According to Dawson and crew, the radio show is doing just that.
