Hey hi hello!
This is the first installment in a new series for the KCR College Radio blog: Aztecs of SDSU! Every two weeks, I’ll be featuring five to six students based on a different theme ranging from the clothes you wear to your thoughts on random issues around campus. This week, I went up to students on campus who had headphones plugged in and asked, “What’s on your playlist?”
It was slightly intimidating, considering that we usually have our headphones on to shut out the world… But with some balls of steel I managed to convince six people to talk to me about their current favorite albums or playlists and even discovered a few new artists myself!
