Tune Talk

James Novack Neely Battle

Genre(s): N/A

Well, it's pretty obvious that music is a huge part of popular culture, and we LOVE to talk about that! For one hour every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, we're going to be discussing (and playing) only the best music that hits the air! So, if your in for listening to some serious jams (and laughs) tune in every Tuesday from 9-11 PM!

Bio

I've always thought that those who put them selves out there are the most successful, and I'm pretty "out there". I come from a very small town on the Illinois/Wisconsin border known as Antioch (but that's quite irrelevant; if you know where that is, chances are you're from there). If I were to give you a word that describes me, i'm pretty sure it's "interesting"; I go where most don't even think about going, and I'm ready for whatever hits me on the way there. So, when it came to deciding my major, I had two options: Music, or Psychology.Both are things I hold incredibly close to me. I decided Psychology because I feel I would benefit a bit more financially from it. SO, that being said, I started my show Tune Talk last fall, and I'd have to say it went pretty well. So well, I added a Co-Host and was offered to do more shows. And here I am, waiting, for what ever obstacle that tries to stop me. And to show it that I can do whatever it takes to get where I need to go. I AM /u/DatAmygdala



Influences

I'm heavily influenced by some serious public figures, mostly ones that aren't afraid to stand up for what they believe in. Once again, I've always gone where most don't. I would say I owe my sanity to Lady Gaga, but she was really the musician that told me it was okay to be myself, and let my freak flag fly. I watch a lot of popular culture tv shows, and was a RELIGIOUS follower of The Fashion Police; Joan Rivers was hilarious. Harry Potter is my rock. It has truly taught me more then you could understand.



Favorite Artists

I don't know what to put here; I have a very eclectic taste in music, so I'm just going to list them off. Sam Smith, Beyonce, Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Foster the People, Ed Sheeran, Alligatoah (German artist. Look him up), Lady Gaga, The Ready Set, Tame Impala, The Black Keys, BEYONCÉ, Janis Joplin, Josh Groban, Skrillex, Marvin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Did I say BEYONCÉ?, Sublime, Green Day, Kendrick Lamar. The list doesn't end. However, I can't stand country.

Bio

I'm Neely! I'm 19 and from Memphis, Tennessee and having fun and radiating positivity is my thing. My favorite things to do are go to concert and music fests such as Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, listen to music, listen to records, jam out... and did I mention how much I love music? I believe music connects people in such an awesome way and it's a huge part of my life. I also am into theater and have been in productions since the 5th grade! When I heard about Radio DePaul I was so excited to get involved.



Influences

Like I said, music has so much influence on me. I grew up listening to The Beatles with my dad and have had such a passion for music my whole life. A goal of mine is sharing music that I love with others.
