The Sound of Silence
Today was the last day for WOXY’s broadcast. As I sit here listening to the sound of nothingness through my speakers, I am saddened. WOXY has not only entertained me during my late nights of academic toil it, introduced me to a wealth of new music that I had lost much faith in. For many years, I had been content listening to the music I had grown up with, not hearing much in the way of new music that appealed to me. Until I started listening to WOXY. Pinback, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Rilo Kiley, Aqueduct, even Franz Ferdinand before they hit the indie bigtime – to name only a few artists I have fell in love with. All this to say, I do not welcome this imposed sound of silence.
