    Urban Landscapes hits the airwaves and the Internet Friday evenings from
    8-11pm PST on KCPR 91.3 FM, and through our live Internet stream at

    Don't forget that if you miss the live show, you can hear it anytime via
    the Urban Landscapes site at http://www.urbanlandscapesshow.com. The
    last ten shows will always be posted for your listening pleasure
    anytime, anyday. Be sure to tell your friends about the show.

    The spring quarter, and thus the academic year, at Cal Poly is rapidly
    approaching to a close. There's only one week left before Finals Week
    and Graduation ceremonies, but Urban Landscapes isn't going anywhere
    anytime soon.

    There's some fresh sounds that will be arriving here in the coming
    weeks. Thanks to a couple of kind-hearted souls, Austria and Australia
    will get some representation with some forward-thinking compilations
    that I'll share with you.

    Also this summer, more interviews are forthcoming. I haven't done them
    in quite awhile, and I think it's important that you get to know some of
    the folks behind the music that you are blessed with every week.
    Interviews will soon come from Martin Iveson of Atjazz, Zero dB, Chateau
    Flight, and Yukimi Nagano (one of the vocalists on Koop's "Waltz For
    Koop" long player). More details to follow.

    Part Two of the Spring Quarter Rewind, our look back at some of the best
    music from the past ten weeks, will mainly focus on the singles and
    individual works that are the standouts to seek out for your collection.
    There are a few albums that I did not get to from Part One that I hope
    to have for you as well.

    No reviews this week, but past reviews will be posted very soon. Expect
    new ones next week.
