Lou Niles' "In Your Neighborhood" Debut Episode!
When I was in high school, I lived for Sundays. I'd set my VCR for MTV's 120 Minutes, and I'd make sure I had blank cassettes to record Lou Niles on Loudspeaker on 91X. I'd set a timer so I could flip the cassette at the right time, and I remember falling in love with San Diego music, even though there were only a few places as an underager to actually experience it, (especially when said underager got busted with a 'minor in possession' and pretty much banned from Soma by her parents). Lou is back on the Loudspeaker team and active in the music scene once again, and is now doing weekly episodes of In Your Neighborhood with Lou Niles. This first episode cover's Bill Perrine's super rad docmentary, It's Gonna Blow: San Diego's Music Underground 1986-1996, which has been shown around town and is getting traction in various film festivals around the country, too. I love these little bites of San Diego life and hope that Lou continues to bring interesting music bites on a consistent basis.
