goodbye :(

Dear listeners,

I have had the most wonderful time hosting Mighty Aphrodite. I've listened to a lot of new and fantastic music thanks to your recommendations, and I've made some new friends-from-a-distance. Working here and putting together music every week has been a pleasure and a constant learning experience. Brianna is your new Mighty Aphrodite, so treat her well! She's a great girl, and she has great taste in music :)

Thank you all so much for being so awesome, love you!

February 3, 2011


Hey guys,

This week, I would like to give a big thank you to Indie Rock Cafe ( They're an invaluable source every week for aiding me in the discovery of new music to share with you! It's amazing how blogs have come to define the way we discover and share new sounds. People cry about the death of print, and as an English major, I empathize. However, it seems to me that magazines simply don't have the same output as blogs, yet the weekly musical output needs to be kept up with. I hope that books are never fully replaced by kindles, though. There's little better in life than laying in bed with a good book...
