Re: “The Time Jumpers' Dawn Sears Dies at 53

I remember falling in love with that voice when I had moved to Nashville in the 90s. Soon after I worked the same stage on several occasions with John Hobbs festivities. I became friends with her and her husband Kenny. Though through the years, we drifted apart, I recently reunited with her at 3rd and Lindsey. It breaks my heart but I know how she battled this horrible disease and she can finally rest. I shared many memories that I will always treasure. Rest in Peace My friend!

Re: “The resurgence of terrestrial radio continues as FCC grants WRVU Friends and Family a low-power FM frequency

Whatever Chris Carroll's talents in advising student media outside of radio are (and as an alumnus of the Vanderbilt Hustler as well as WRVU, I admit they exist), he has a demonstrated misunderstanding of and hostility to radio dating back to his days at Tulane and South Carolina.

But this development permits Nashville and, if they so choose, Vanderbilt students, to leave him behind to do his thing as they do theirs. For this reason, I will waste no further time or effort on Chris Carroll.

I may have to imagine him on fire and me needing to pee in order to successfully waste no further time or effort on him, but whatever it takes.

Re: “The resurgence of terrestrial radio continues as FCC grants WRVU Friends and Family a low-power FM frequency

Interesting that VSC is now fundraising. In a 2010 letter to the VU administration I suggested a member supported model to fund WRVU and VSC. I received a response from Beth Fortune who said she forwarded the idea to Chris Carroll. Clearly, VSC and Vanderbilt were not interested is such community interaction. WRVU could have been the cash cow to fund the media expansion VSC is apparently struggling to finance. A real opportunity was missed. The new WRVU Friends & Family station will be much better off unfettered by behind the Magnolia Curtain shenanigans. For a place that does a lot of good things and is populated by smart people, Vanderbilt seems terribly blunder-prone.

That post certainly didn't help leave our issues with the Board behind. I'll try harder in the future.

Re: “The resurgence of terrestrial radio continues as FCC grants WRVU Friends and Family a low-power FM frequency

This alum (A&S '84, Peabody (MLS) '87) and ex-WRVU DJ is QUITE angry about it, Laura. Just so you'll know.

You are right--VSC has no part of the station-to-be, and probably we will all be better off when our issues with the Board are completely left behind.

Certainly there was plenty of strategy involved in pushing the WRVU sale through, but I'm not sure that's what you meant by "strategic." VSC gutted something very special to make a little money.

Now, recently, a fundraising campaign directed precisely at Vanderbilt Student Communications alumni has begun. I received a letter from a fellow former VSCer asking me for a donation to help "Create the Future." Apparently there is a new VSC employee serving as Director of Development and Alumni Relations, and the writer of the letter is the chair of a fundraising steering committee.

Where was this idea hiding in 2010? Some of the station activists suggested and supported some kind of fundraising campaign, but the board seemed to have little interest.

Exactly how much money does VSC need?

Is it perhaps spreading itself a bit thin with newer media outlets that do not have, say, 50 years of seniority and a direct line to the Nashville community, as WRVU did? The letter mentions that there are now 17 media organizations at Vanderbilt.

These are open questions, not rhetorical ones, and I certainly invite answers.

I was proud to work for VSC print publications when I was in school--the Hustler and the magazine Versus (now also defunct)--and there are people I respect and one person I know and like on the fundraising committee. I really don't wish VSC ill, but, quite honestly, the Board in 2011 cut my heart out. I have loved hardly anything in my life the way I loved doing the shows Nashville Jumps and Rock and Roll Rent Control and sitting in on the wonderful Hipbilly Jamboree. It's personal for me and I won't deny it.

I am a Vanderbilt employee and have been for many years, and that's okay with me. I was disappointed that they did not do something to save the station, but it was explained to some of us that the Chancellor and everyone else at the University had plenty of other troubles on their plate and that they were inclined to respect VSC's autonomy. Which, most of the time, was probably the correct attitude.

I think there were solutions to VSC's problems that were better than reducing one of its major divisions to a relatively voiceless shadow of itself.

Re: “The resurgence of terrestrial radio continues as FCC grants WRVU Friends and Family a low-power FM frequency

I suppose that if one existed in a vacuum--or an ivory tower--then failure to grasp the historical significance of demolishing a treasured 60-year-old regional entity might be expected. But even private universities secretly ashamed to be located in the South must operate within a local context.

It does seem pointless to reenact arguments from the original debacle, though that's not what Mr. Gold did. It is quite reasonable to draw conclusions about a person's character based on personal experience and the experience of trusted others, especially when combined with fascinatingly corroboratory data: http://www.wuscalumni.org/radio.html

Re: “Is Slipknot unfairly reviled? Our curmudgeonly headbanger gives them another chance and says no

The fact that you're still referring to them as a nu-metal band and it's 2014 shows you shouldn't be writing anything surrounding slipknot or metal music for that matter. Anyhow the main point that i am trying to make is that you shouldn't be writing an article that wholly contains you showing a deepened hate, winging about how slipknots music has no lyrical interpretation for yourself and cant sink through your thick skull unlike millions of others, you should respect the devotion and the effort they put in despite the music as with any other artist rather than act like a prissy little bitch, disgracing everything they do for an article that a large amount of their fans will read, this amazingly biased article makes you the worst critique ever. Please can the acoustic neuroma infested likes of yourself stay the fuck away from slipknot or any other artist you cant appreciate or not have a dented point of view on, thanks a bunch cancer patient, enjoy the free haircut at chemotherapy.

Re: “The resurgence of terrestrial radio continues as FCC grants WRVU Friends and Family a low-power FM frequency

I echo BB's points here, heartily, especially about Carroll. While I have some sympathy for Vanderbilt alums upset about the WRVU sale (and I'm friends with several), I don't have a lot of patience for non-alum community members angry about it. VSC exists to serve Vanderbilt students.

It's wonderful that the Friends/Fam group of radio enthusiasts has made progress in its own efforts--but it is a community effort, not one related to Vanderbilt, so it almost seems beside the point to me to drag VSC into it.

Finally, just as a counterpoint, the sale of the WRVU license made a lot of sense in my opinion, and was very strategic on the part of the VSC board.

Re: “The Time Jumpers' Dawn Sears Dies at 53

It is with profound sadness that Dawn Sears has left us. I just got lucky one night listening to The Ralph Emery show and Dawn was one of the singers that night. What a beautiful voice she had and ever since I just fell in love with her singing. She made Vince proud I am sure by being his back up singer. Now that she is in heaven I am sure that our heavenly Father will see that Dawn is on the front row singing in the choir. Harriet "Willy" Duran

Just heard Petty's "Christmas All Over" on Sirius holiday station, and it really is a pretty great song.
