Top 35 list
Meg just posted on the transformative power of KTRU 91.7 in creating an understanding of the world and how parts come together. One of my favorite parts of working at KTRU was making the top 35 with Viki.
Part of the joy, is taking the scrambled collage of sound, noise, rock and stutter that went out over the airwaves and then quantifying and ranking that shit. We actually tallied the plays for every song and then juggled the mix a bit to capture the mood of that week.
CMJ gave us a lot of weight in their weekly charts because we were a 50,000 watt station. To this day, Dusted counts KTRU as one of only a few stations that inform their top 40 because clearly some opinions are more important than others.
I may not have that kind of clout at the moment, but I thought it would be fun to chart the top five scents of the week. After all, what is more personal, sensual and ultimately decadent than music? Scent.
