Knee-Jerk Snap Judgment: KXT
OK, so KERA's musical youth been on the air for, what, 60 minutes? First song played: Santana's "She's Not There" (probably a little too classic-rock for a new-station kick-off, you ask me), followed by Monsters of Folk, Ingrid Michaelson, Telegraph Canyon and ... well, look, the playlist is here, so there. (Hey! Rhett Miller!) The missus listened for a few minutes before laughing: "It's so ... NPR, like a Saturday Night Live sketch. Little bit." Pete wonders in this week's paper what it all means; hard to say 15 songs into its existence. But ponderin' is fun. So too is Manu Dibango's "Soul Makossa," better than a cup of coffee before 8 a.m.
