BIG NEWS about the future of Girl Germs
December 15, 2010
Hello friends of Girl Germs,
As you may have heard us discuss last night, we have some sad – but exciting – news regarding the show.
December 28, 2010 will be Girl Germs’ final broadcast on Radio K. While we love the station and the time we’ve spent there, Jenny and I have decided that a student-run station is no longer the appropriate venue for what we envision for the show in 2011. Radio K is making some substantial changes and it seemed like the right time to part ways.
Never fear, though. Girl Germs won’t be skipping a beat. In fact we’ll be as contagious as ever. We’ll be continuing our monthly “TV Party with Girl Germs” screening nights at the Red Stag Supperclub in Northeast Minneapolis through the spring, in addition to doing some exciting guest-blogging and mix-making over at High Plains Thrifter. We’ll also be blogging like crazy on this site (which will move to a new address after the first of the year – we’ll keep you updated on that). In early 2011 we plan to start producing and distributing new episodes, and as more information becomes available we’ll keep you posted on where and how you’ll be able to listen.
As longtime employees/volunteers at KUOM, this is a bittersweet goodbye – but we look forward to sharing music by groundbreaking female artists with even more listeners in the new year and beyond. Please watch this site and our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates, and we’ll see you locals at the Red Stag Monday, Jan. 11 for our next TV Party with Girl Germs event, where we’ll be screening episodes of Golden Girls (OMG Sophia! Blanche! Rose! Dorothy!). We’ll let you know the dates of future TV Parties shortly.
Please comment here or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to contact us about the change.
Thank you all for your continued support, Germs!
