Jon Schleuss is a Tibetan prayer flag, oscillating in the streaming media wind.
A Centenary college student, he has blazed a trail from graphic arts to radio management to writing programming code. He's working at RFC, he's producing a show at Actor's cafe or H & H Lounge, he's giving someone a wink and smile at Starbucks, but mainly he's an online force majeure: snaps on flickr.com, Arabian Nights on twitter.com, explanations on blogspot, fun on Facebook, etc.
As much as I like watching him run from pursuit to pursuit, there is one big Schleuss thing that impacts my life: the rockin' indie music that I listen to on KSCL. Moldy music mostly does not inspire me. The CMJ charts are the sound of the moment. Derivative and flawed, yes, but fresh.
Surely faculty advisor Michael Laffey and other students have helped keep KSCL operating over the summer, but I followed the passionate Schleuss as he clamored for more media.
If you haven't managed to waggle your dial to 91.3 fm, please spritz your life with an alternative to the local and predictable. And one of the shows you may catch is the vibrant Voice of Schleuss.
