WHY “NOTHING MATTERS” MATTERS

“If I programmed an Alt station and was told I could play Beyoncé, of course I would,” Karen Glauber writes in her latest Post Toasted column. “Where’s the part where you’re shifting culture? Where’s the awareness that playing female artists helps shift the narrative?”

Good questions—and a ray of hope is on the horizon.

“Thankfully, Last Dinner Party on Island appears to be this year’s Wet Leg in terms of making compelling music that redefines the mainstream.”

Elsewhere in the column, Karen discusses the considerable challenge of getting new music played on the Alt format: “Maybe the next step is to approach the women programmers, since their taste is far more elevated and adventurous than most men in the same job.”

On an altogether different subject, KG supplied this photo of Arista’s Nick Petropoulos saying hi to Johnny Ramone, who once upon a time helped redefine the mainstream, at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
