Show of the Week: “Currently” w/ DJ Pineapple Emoji

img_0729Halloween has come and gone and with less than half the semester to go, it is time for another show spotlight of the week.  This week’s focus is on Gina Snyder (AKA) pineapple emoji, a first-year potential Psychology or Spanish major that hails from Colorado Springs, CO.  Gina got interested in LASR when she toured PLU last March, and then saw LASR again at the involvement fair this past September.  Gina proclaims that her music taste is great and wanted to share that music with anyone that would listen.

The show that Gina DJs is known as “Currently”.  Gina created the show to express her desire to play songs she recently listened too.  These songs can include ones that she is “in too” or songs that make her think “hey, you should listen to this”.  The ultimate goal of “Currently” is to share knowledge of music that listeners might not ever hear of and possibly may enjoy.  Then genre of music played on “Currently” varies from show to show.  Genres heard can include Alternative and Rock, Indie, and Rap.  Gina thrives on this diversity because the show is designed to play songs that are new or songs she is in too, regardless of genre.

Gina has two main goals for the show.  First, Gina wants to share new artists, bands, and genres to people that they may have never heard off.  Second, Gina wants to spread a message of positivity and the idea of “be kind to people” to all of her listeners.  You can catch “Currently” on Wednesdays from 7:00pm-8:00pm only on LASR.
