    Proof of the Proof? It's in the Record Libe

    November 14, 2006 at 12:00 am

    The KRLX Record Library is a small place with a big heart. Nestled in the basement of Sayles Hill, it occupies roughly the same amount of space as an Evans quint, and serves as home for thousands of (often promotional) LPs and CDs that the station has accrued over the years.

    Gift Rap

    November 9, 2006 at 3:00 pm

    Didn't get flowers in your mailbox this Friday? What would finding a wilted carnation mean, anyway? In "Something Borrowed, Something Blue," a recent episode of KRLX Radio program Periscope contemplated the significance of gifts and gift-giving traditions.

    While presents in Lizzie's family are rarely ever wrapped, her friend talks of her family's extravagant gift-giving traditions. David describes why he hates his birthday, and Madeline talks of inheriting her Grandmother's jewelry box.

    Click to tune in to the episode here--it's sure to be way better than a carnation.

    The Sound of a Tragedy

    Periscope Radio's Coverage of the Hurricane Katrina Symposium

    "This is the sound of rain. More specifically, it's the sound of the costliest hurricane in US history, and one of the most deadly. This is the sound of the storm that flooded a city and killed at least 1,600 people. This is Hurricane Katrina, coming down on Jackson, Mississippi, some 200 miles away from the center of the storm down on the Gulf Coast. And it sounds well, just like rain, doesn't it? It's a hard cry from what 160mph winds reported in the city must've sounded like. But even if we could listen to the hurricane as it hit New Orleans, what exactly would we hear? It might be the sound of a natural disaster; but would it be the sound of a tragedy? That, more than this?..."

    So begins the audio piece produced by Terin Mayer '08 covering the Hurricane Katrina Symposium. On March 31, 2006, Carleton cancelled classes to host a day of reflection about Hurricane Katrina and it's aftermath. The symposium included visiting lecturers, students, professors, and assorted members of the campus community. KRLX's Periscope Radio produced an audio-documentary to capture the very best of the event.

  • Undiscovered Carleton

    March 9, 2006 at 2:53 pm

    In this audio piece that originally aired on KRLX's Periscope Radio, Kathleen Ward '06 attempts to create a seasonal effect--an ebb and flow of thoughts to match the fall, winter and spring of a Carleton year.

    "Using excerpts from interviews on undiscovered Carleton, I hoped that taking words and phrases out of their original context would allow me to move easily from the humourous to the sentimental," Kathleen explained. "I think of this piece as a musical composition in which the songs match the 'lyrics' in rhythm and in feeling."

    staffer Dan Sugarman '09 captured some of the action on video on Friday, January 29 during a performance by Aaron Kaufman '09:
