WRBB X CMJ // 2015 by Adam Kenny and Quinn Slattery
This past October Adam Kenny and Quinn Slattery, both AMD’16, were both fortunate enough to attend the prestigious CMJ Music Marathon in New York City as co-music directors and representatives of WRBB Radio. This was the first time Northeastern and the radio station were officially represented at the conference and it proved to be an extremely insightful look into the landscape of college radio and the music industry as a whole. There, they had the opportunity to meet up with many members of college radio programs across the country and see differences in how the stations are run. While in New York City they also got the chance to interview ten Northeastern graduates who are successfully working in various sectors of the music industry today. Ranging from A&R scouts to booking agents, they got an inside look at how Northeastern’s music industry program and resources as a whole translate to real world practices on a larger scale. Their CMJ chronicles can be found at the Tumblr page they created specifically for the occasion. Also, check out WRBB’s Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts.
