90-Mile View: Amy Farrand At SXSW

Paul Andrews

This week singer/songwriter Amy Farrand is in Austin, Texas as part of the Midcoast Takeover showcase being presented during SXSW.

Doing double duty as an emcee and performer, Amy takes a few minutes before the start of today's showcase to give us a feel of the atmosphere in Austin and an idea of what it takes to keep the music playing 12 hours a day for four days.

As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
