Such a bittersweet story. This was my last On the Other Hand segment at KTSW and what better way to end my run there than with my friends. It’s like ending in full circle.
Now friends aside, this is a great Texas State story. This band started in a Texas State dorm, and the two other bands on the final show lineup, Equals and The Couch, were both from Texas State as well. Before I went back to Texas State, before I met any of these guys, I heard these three band names a lot from that community. That’s why I wanted to do this story.
But I’ll admit, I had a moment of panic when I was overthinking the story and thought I would come off as a fangirl (I guess that’s why they tell us not to cover our friends). Luckily, my directors kept me in check.
So I focused on the band’s end and the relationships with the two other bands. It was nice to sit down with the three bands once again for my last KTSW story. I was already feeling emotional about my upcoming graduation, and after my Hurricane Sandy story, all the giggles and trips down memory lane was something I needed.
BTW, I have a lot of material and interviews I did that didn’t make the story. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that I have a deleted scenes reel coming soon.
