Since first getting involved with WGSU during his freshman year, Ben Frieman has attended weekly music staff meetings and also hosted his own rotation show while at Geneseo.
As sophomore geology major, Ben hosts his first WGSU Specialty Show featuring noise and derivative genres of music. Broadcasting every Monday night from 9 to 10pm, the show is presently called “Grit and Groove,” but may be renamed “Gritty Mondays” in the coming weeks, says Ben.
Choice tracks include the likes of Sarah Lee, Blast Wave, and Ryojikeda. According to Ben, some people who consider themselves noise fans may not consider the show’s music as noise- let’s see what you think!
