About Kim Simpson and this blog

I'm a musician, writer, and radio host who lives in Austin, Texas, where I earned a Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of Texas. I published Early 70s Radio: The American Format Revolution with Continuum (now Bloomsbury) in 2011. The book examines changes in the radio industry—especially the rise of demographic-oriented formats—in an American cultural context. Maybe it's because the early seventies were the entry portal to life as I know it (born in 1969), but my interest in the era, especially music radio-related aspects, keeps on crackling. So this companion blog is a place for me to explore various tangents, especially songs and stations, and I hope it can keep developing into something informative and interconnected. Any readers who share a similar interest—especially those who lived it—are invited to chime in or to contact me at ksimpson3 at gmail dot com for contributions or conversation.
