Unclaimed Baggage. Lost along the way, but the soundtracks never far forgotten, even if, after attempting to do so.
There are certain songs that “belong to us” but we’ve abandoned in time due to the experiences or relationships they remind us of - love, lost love, specific people, specific places, specific moments in your life, a specific identity representing the music tastes of the person you no longer are. It’s okay to revisit and relish in it once and a while... perhaps, every other Sunday from 4-6PM, hmmm ?!
Let Laura Lane unload some of that carefully folded sonic luggage for you on the bi-weekly, thru a curated eclectic setlist consisting of post-punk, dream pop, noise, new wave, metal, shoegaze, industrial, international, electronica, doo-wop and whatever she’s been be-boppin’ to lately. Music released from primarily the 80s, 90s, 2000s with as mini focus on present day discoveries as well !! Tune in for ‘cover of the week’, facts behind the recordings and artists and for breaking news on local shows and upcoming tours featuring the bands she spins.
Laura Lane has been a broadcast babe for the past 7 years. Her DJ roots began at WIUP-FM back in 2010 and she has been hosting ‘Unclaimed Baggage’ at Freeform Portland since its birth in 2016. She has been featured for interviews and podcasts relating to radio by CMJ and Kill Rock Stars’ Music Industry Podcast : ‘The Future of What’. Having previously been the music director of another station as well as recently a record promoter in the Music Industry ( currently on a hiatus ), she purposely combines skills and experience from those past positions to add a touch of educational value to each show for a full-bodied experience.
Feel free to hit her up with any music questions, a playback recap, or to DM her a song request during air-time at www.instagram.com/rezilynt.femme or alternatively, drop a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mixcloud coming soon.
“Accessible listening for open-minded ear; always new sounds. Unpredictable.” - @a*********
“Hello. Tonight I tuned in for the first time while studying for brewing school. I just wanted to say that it was a rad hour. I will tune in more often. Cheers.”
“Great show tonight, thank you! The Love and Rockets cover was the first place I had heard ‘Ball of Confusion’ and I will always love it, but like you pointed out, it is culturally awkward especially in this modern age.”
“Dude. Loving this.” - @a********
“3 years ago I moved to Portland from [other state]. The very first Sunday after I arrived I turned on the radio and happened to tune into your show, I was so happy when you played Sonic Youth, and The Creatures, and other new wave / goth artists I was familiar with. It made me feel so happy and comfortable while I was settling in my new place. I left [other state] to start a new life scared out of my mind, so anything that brought me a sense of belonging or familiarity put me at ease. Besides the fact I loved all the music you played... I wanted to personally thank you for bringing happiness to my life through the music you choose to share. I’ll always be amazed at the effects that music has on people.” - @g***_***_*_****
