The Red Baron – KCR Secret Sessions

SDSU’s very own The Red Baron stopped by the studio for a Secret Sessions interview. We talked to the the producer about Kanye West, carrot fingers, and Tchaikovsky. 

After his track Sway was featured on HillyDilly and Diplo & Friends, the EDM artist has garnered some well deserved attention. We wanted to bring you an exclusive before he gets too big for San Diego vibes and moves to LA (any day now).

After the interview he laid down a guest mix featuring Disclosure, Birdy Nam Nam, and original tracks. If you get addicted, don’t fret. You can download it free on Soundcloud, along with basically everything else The Red Baron has laid his hands on. 

The Red Baron KCR Guest Mix

Recently signed to All Mine, The Red Baron calls his sound “dance music for the opera house.” His musical career started out 10 years ago, learning to play the guitar and cello, and then struggling to make electro house.

Now that he’s found his sound, he says it’s constantly evolving. For now: Electronic. Trap. Crazy melodies. Intricate arpeggios. Tackling classical legends.

Settle in for The Red Baron’s extended interview and get acquainted.

Dear President Hirshman

Quinn Owen interviews Giovanni Herrera at the Aztec Student Union.

Quinn Owen interviews Giovanni Herrera at the Aztec Student Union.

KCR host Quinn Owen is broadcasting live from the Aztec Student Union courtyard Thursday, March 6 at 9 a.m.

Tune in to hear coverage of a student-moderated open forum that President Hirshman has been invited to participate in.

Students are expected to continue protests if Pres. Hirshman does not make himself available on Thursday morning, or the “Student Success Fee” is not overturned.

According to the SDSU’s information page on the fee, President Hirshman will make the final call on whether or note to endorse the fee, and the CSU Chancellor has the final authority to approve the fee.

The Aztec took a stand on the issue by posting an editorial arguing that the administration is making a meaningless effort to truly inform the students about the fee hike.

Read on for the email sent by students in reply to Pres. Hirshman agreeing to a meeting.

Dear Pres. Hirshman,

We received your invitation for a meeting via Associate Vice President for Campus Life Timothy Quinnan. We sincerely appreciate your invitation and are very pleased to learn that you will be free to meet with us this Thursday, March 6, at 9 a.m.

We feel that all interested students, faculty, staff, and alumni should have the opportunity to express their views to you before you make any decision about the proposed fee increase.

Many students were unsatisfied with the “alternative consultation” process, finding it to be one-sided and undemocratic; and we feel that more must be done to improve accountability, transparency, and involvement.

Therefore, we hereby invite you to meet with us this Thursday, March 6, 9-10 a.m. for a student-moderated open forum at the Aztec Student Union courtyard, to be broadcast live on KCR College Radio. We have democratically selected experienced student moderators who can introduce you and facilitate input from all assembled.

We thank you for your time and look forward to continuing this important discussion about the future of our university.

Sincerely,

Concerned Students of San Diego State University
