July 2, 2009 at 10:56 AM (PT)
Long-time CHICAGO radio vet JAMES VANOSDOL is writing a book, the working title is "CHICAGO ROCKED! 1990-1999." VANOSDOL, who worked at Alternative WKQX, Alternative-Active Rock WZZN (now-defunct) and AAA WXRT, has spent the past several years writing -- pulling together hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews and stories from the artists, label owners, studio engineers, club owners, and scenesters who made the CHICAGO music scene "happen" in the 90s.
Currently an Affiliate Mgr. for EMMIS/CHICAGO, VANOSDOL intends to self-publish the book using the social network site KICKSTARTER. VANOSDOL is seeking help from the community to cover all the expenditures for the project in order to finance the book and get it into stores and AMAZON by SUMMER 2010.
VANOSDOL will be guest on CHRIS PAYNE's "LOCAL 101" on Q101 this SUNDAY night @ 8p (CT) to talk about the "CHICAGO ROCKED!" pledge drive. Find out how you can help VANOSDOL bring the "CHICAGO ROCKED!" story to fruition by clicking here.
