Rogue Sounds

Cait Bourgault/whenparticlescollide.com

Josh Gross expresses his passion for music so well, we only give him 15 minutes on the air.  A month. 

And he makes the most of the time, exposing us to a handful of bands making appearances in the region in the coming weeks. 

It's a segment we call Rogue Sounds, and it's an early kickoff to a weekend that includes our First Friday Arts segment.

Rogue Sounds are not necessarily sounds that come from rogue bands.  It's just that they are coming to play in or near the Rogue Valley that they come to the attention of Josh Gross

He is himself a musician, a lover of music, and a writer of music (and theater, but that's another story). 

Once a month Josh picks a short list of bands coming to town, chooses representative samples of their music, and joins us on the air to talk about them.  Voila: Rogue Sounds.

We have yet to find a musical genre that Josh Gross does not like. 

His enthusiasm for music in all forms is infectious, and reflected in his music columns and articles in the Rogue Valley Messenger

So we borrow that enthusiasm once a month, for our own Rogue Sounds segment.  Josh Gross returns to talk about the works and local appearances of a handful of bands.

Our monthly hit of contemporary music, Rogue Sounds, steps up a notch for December (yes, we're a day early). 

Because Josh Gross of the Rogue Messenger, our music curator, is also the organizer of a CD of local bands and a party to release it, coming up next week. 

So Josh will treat us to a souped-up collection of songs, just in time for the holidays.
