WRMC Spotlight: It’s Complicated

Who: My solo radio show is titled “It’s Complicated.” I (Maddy Dickinson) have had two radio shows since my freshman spring here at Middlebury, and this show, “It’s Complicated,” originated during my sophomore fall. This is the longest running show I have had on WRMC, broadcasting every semester since then with the exception of Spring 2017, when I was abroad.

Why: My show revolves around the essential question that most music consumers hear at some point in their lives, “what kind of music do you like to listen to?” I framed this show to answer this question week by week, on a genre-by-genre basis. As someone who consumes a large variety of music on a daily basis, (I listen to everything from Kacey Musgraves to Death Grips) I have a music taste that isn’t easily definable. Consequently, I often resort to the answer “It’s Complicated” when answering the inevitable question. 

What: I cater each of my playlists to a different genre I’m exploring/enjoying at the moment, playing a wide range of music including Chinese folk, lo-fi skuzz, pop-punk, psychedelic and singer-songwriter. I’ve also recently been revisiting some of my older playlists from my first semester on air, or two plus years ago, to see how my music taste has evolved even throughout that short period of time. 

When: You can listen to “It’s Complicated” on Tuesdays from 8 to 9 p.m at WRMC 91.1 or at go/listen.
