Hollow Earth Radio
Local freeform outfit Hollow Earth Radio (HER) has set upon an important task: documenting the independent music legacy of the Pacific Northwest. Thus is the genesis of HER’s Sea-Port Beat series, a groundbreaking eight-part audio documentary that traces the little-known underground stories at the heart of our region’s music community—from the 1950s to the grunge wave to the post-Internet era. Featuring candid interviews local musicians as well as those who create the culture around the music –record label proprietors, hose venue operators, visual artists and more—Sea-Port makes its debut today and will stream every Wednesday in March at 10:00 am to noon with rebroadcasts at 6:00. For these evening rebroadcasts, Hollow Earth will also open its doors every week for in-person listening sessions. Funding for this project was made possible by a grant from Humanities of Washington. Today’s episodes include “This Time Let’s Do It Right,” which surveys the Northwest Independent Music Legacy of the 1980’s, and “Origins Of A Sound,” an exploration of how the unique Northwest sound has developed. Check out the above link for more on Sea-Port Beat, or to learn how listen to the program via podcast.
