We are usually featured on their front page. There is also a link to our
Stickam page on the first page of Demolisten.org. These videos will also be
posted there.
Bryon the Digital Filipino or Pablo Capra or Cristina Ramirez is in charge of video and will be in room with you. tHey will get
really close with his fisheye lens. they are very nice people. tHey may ask
you to setup in a specific way to make the video look better. Please be
cooperative.
If you bring a VHS tape, you will walk home with a great looking video with
great sound. Please feel free to post this on internet or whatever. This tape
will look a MILLION times better than the archived internet videos.

Please bring props, dancers, backdrops, videos, anything you want! Really anything weird ask permission for, but lets have fun!

DON’T WEAR BLACK! Ok, wear whatever you want, but it will LOOK better if you DON’T wear BLACK.

WHAT TO BRING:

- bring CDrs to record your performance onto and you can take it home. Give
them to the engineer before you play and ask him to record your performance on
them.

- bring a high quality blank VHS tape so you can take the video of your
performance home.

- bring a boom box to record the ON AIR signal with lots of compression. You
will be amazed how good these cassette recordings made from the on air signal
will sound.

- bring food. The camus has a cafeteria with really bad food that is
sometimes open. There is also a Jamba Juice that is sometimes open. The
closest restaurants are near the corner of Manchester and Lincoln.

- Bring copies of your demos to give to other KXLU DJs, and the Music
Director. Feel free to leave them in their mail boxes. Remember for the Music
Director to have the CD in a regular jewel case with at least the name of the
band on the spine. (so they can be easily identified while in the
“stacks”) Also, note any songs that have bad words.

- a sheet of paper with all shows, websites, email addresses, phone #’s
you want to promote or broadcast. (this is for me to read on the radio)

- bring some demos of friend’s bands or bands that you like for our show!
We will not listen to or play them that night. We will take them home and check
them out.

RULES: I hate them also but I have to protect my position at KXLU.

there is no drinking or smoking in the studios of KXLU. There is no swearing on
the air at KXLU. no fuck, shit, cocksucker, cunt, asshole. No “I wanna
lick your ass.” you understand. We are owned by priests. If it’s in
a song either change the lyrics, mumble or don’t play that song.

Please do not bring any guests. No managers and no record company people
period.

OK. a couple of friends is ok, but a couple. Wives, husbands, boyfriends,
girlfriends best friends. that sort of thing. A friend can come to video tape
for example. Press people can be worked out in advance, but no surprises.

I have learned that I get uncomfortable at KXLU when there are people around I
do not know. I am responsible for everything that occurs at KXLU while my show
is on the air. When it is just KXLU people, bands and a few guests I can stay
relaxed and it makes for a better show all around for everyone, especially the
listeners!

_____________________________________________________________________

THINGS TO REMEMBER:

-Please arrive around 5pm. (more on that later)
-Plan to play for at least 20 minutes. We would like you to play for 30
minutes. If it goes well and you got there early enough, you’ll be asked to
play for longer.
-The sound that you hear in the performance room in no way represents the sound
on air. If you get there early enough you can record a quick song and have the
engineer play it back for you. Also, when the final signal gets broadcast, a
large amount of compression is added to everything that goes through the
transmitter. So maybe have a friend record it off the air from home.
That’s usually the best sounding source.
-Be nice to the engineer even if he is not nice to you. He might just be in a
bad mood. He is a volunteer as everyone is at KXLU. You should bring him
food.
-When playing, announce the name of your band and songs you are playing between
EACH SONG. the average person listens to the radio for 10-15 minutes at a time.
Also announce your shows.
-When TALKING speak very loudly and close to the mic. It is setup for you to
sing and scream so if you just whisper a foot from the mic, no one can hear you.

-the onair studio phone # is (310) 338-5958

_____________________________________________________________________

Traffic on Friday afternoon in Los Angeles is horrific.

You cannot exxxagerate the magnitude of this statement. Leave early. Whatever
time you think you should leave…..leave an hour earlier…..leave 2 hours
earlier if you want it to sound good on the radio. I am not joking. I tell
every band this and every band is late. I have been doing this for 15 years and
every band is late. Not joking. Not exxxagerating. Do with this information
as you please. Please arrive around 5pm.
_____________________________________________________________________

Please click here for a map of L.M.U. We are on the fourth floor of Malone.
You can drive your car onto grass and unload in front of the LMU Bookstore into
elevator on first floor. We have crappy dollies to use if you need them. Do
not leave your car here. Unload. Park. Play on radio. Get Car. Load. Leave.
You can park in any parking spot. Ignore signs that say “30 minute
parking”, but observe signs that say “Reserved”.
