    KAMPing Out

    Editor’s Note: This feature will showcase a different KAMP radio show from week to week.

    KAMP Student Radio boasts about 85 shows this semester in its 38th term broadcasting at the UA, and this week’s featured show is “”Your New Favorite Song”” with D.J. Karl Goranowski, a history sophomore.

    Goranowski, aka Karl Ka$h, created his radio persona as a tribute to the late Johnny Cash.

    Goranowski opens every Wednesday at noon with his namesake’s “”Sunday Morning Coming Down,”” but then spins his show into a rollercoaster of folk rock, hip-hop, electronic and some classics.

    Goranowski said he wants to expose people to what he likes, regardless of what he calls KAMP’s “”militant agenda”” encouraging underground music.

    The history sophomore takes two hours to plan each show, and this week, he crammed NOFX, Sly and the Family Stone, Arctic Monkeys, a Swedish metal band called Burst and a track from college radio staple Elliott Smith (actually, a cover of “”Needle In The Hay”” by the artist’s former trumpet player Eric Matthews) into his hour-long slot, just to name a few.

    Although he said noon on Wednesday is a “”black hole”” for listenership, the show is broadcast live in the Park Student Union courtyard just outside the KAMP studio.

    Goranowski concluded yesterday’s show with Boston’s “”More Than A Feeling,”” a tribute to his dad, a former college DJ and one of his most loyal listeners.

    Tune in to “”Your New Favorite Song”” every Wednesday at noon and other KAMP shows around the clock at http://kamp.arizona.edu or channel 20 in the dorms. Send your requests to kamprequest on AOL instant messenger or call the request line, 621-5806.
