bsides. bsides radio. radio bsides? that's right!

bsides is an animated, innovative radio show played every saturday night on 91.1fm, kisu (also online at kisu.org, where you can stream live for you out of town listeners). kisu broadcasts from the idaho state university campus in pocatello, idaho, and employs only college students with super radio voices and impeccable taste in music.

it just so happens that one of the aforementioned students hosts bsides. her name is molly mcisaac (that's me!), and she lives, breathes, eats, sleeps with, makes love to, cries with, digests, and lives music. she is a veritable walking jukebox, and has a mix tape for every situation you could imagine - everything from having orgasms in art class to soundtracks to epilepsy dancing on valentine's day. she is a graphic design major who happened into her home away from home (kisu) when she began hosting the jazz show, sweet sounds, every morning for an entire year. due to conflicting school schedules, she loosened her grip on sweet sounds back to its former host, and she is now doing whatever she wants with her new project, bsides.

bsides is a radio mix tape. it is two hours long, from 10p to midnight every saturday night. molly takes random themes, either pulled from the loins of her ridiculous mind, or suggestions from listeners, and forms a mix tape around said theme for an hour. this show is full of surprises and bursting to death with overzealous plans and chatter.

molly has some serious plans for this show, and would love a crazy awesome listener base. this blog will be used to document playlists, commentary on listeners, on the culture in pocatello and idaho, and random off the wall nothings.
