CHIRP Radio writesCHIRP Radio Book Club Discusses “The First Collection…” on July 5th!

by Miranda Phelps

Book: The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic
Author: Jessica Hopper
Publisher: featherproof books | Chicago, IL | 2015

On the surface, Jessica Hopper’s The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic appears to be a compilation of articles, artist profiles, interviews, and musings running in a variety of publications throughout early 2003 - 2014. Scratching the surface a few layers deep, Hopper lays the foundation for her obsession with music, her enigmatic relationship with the industry, and the subjects in which she reveals.

Exposed in every entry, Hopper’s writings provide declaration to the ebb and flow of our culture; how society is defined by music, how society takes part in shaping music, the parallels in which artist and audience share a reflective journey. 

The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic is an absolute for the reader that wants to take a deeper dive into the subjects that Hopper chooses, or not, to cover. For her audience, she has laid the groundwork for those that want to carry out their own research in order to decipher conclusions about an industry-a medium-that resonates universally.

Join CHIRP Radio at Roscoe Books tomorrow, July 5, for a discussion of this book!

Paige Miner writesInternational Jukebox: How English Music is Changing the Scene Across the World

by Paige Miner

There were a few things that puzzled me when I first arrived in France in late May. First are the massive amount of roundabouts - they make up almost every intersection here, and there are about 30,000 in the entire country of France. Meanwhile, I can count on one hand the amount I know of in my home state of Illinois.

Among the things that I didn’t expect were the tiny dollhouse-sized mugs of espresso after every meal, and never quite knowing what to expect when ordering off of a menu in a language I barely speak. But as I hopped into my rental car -- stick shift only, mind you, which I left to my father to drive -- it was only natural for me to start fiddling with the radio.

After working for four years in radio while in college, I learned the ins and outs of the American radio industry. I can recite laws and regulations for radio in the States, and list radio stations I have loved and grew up with. As a self-proclaimed radio geek, the medium fascinates me.

In my new series, International Jukebox, I will explore how American and Anglophone music affects non-Anglophone listeners, how to discover new radio stations and music in a new culture, and how listening to new music improves a language, and finally, a playlist for all your language-learning needs.
