* At 6 a.m. on April 28, Rice University's KTRU will transfer their signal to the University of Houston — U of H intends to use the frequency to broadcast "classical music and arts information" — thus marking the demise of yet another college radio station. College Broadcasters Inc. is organizing a "national minute of silence" at noon (CST) on April 28, and they want "[their] membership and those who have benefited from college radio to join [them] in the effort." In their announcement, the CBI noted the "pending sale" of Vanderbilt's WRVU.
* Local outfit The Nudity is new, and they have a single called "CASSINGLE" that you can hear right now. The Nudity describes the track as "tropical goth," but I'd say it falls in the same sort of dark electro-pop territory as Phantogram (who's playing Nashville on June 16). By the way, The Nudity is opening for Maserati at The End on April 28. [Via WOTT]
