Manager Scene Team Profile: Linnea
When were you hired on as an intern at CD102.5?
I began interning at CD102.5 back when it was still CD101 in September 2009. Antonio & I had office hours together!
How long have you been a Promotions Manager?
I have been a Promotions Manager since September 2010. Holla!
What do you love about working at CD102.5?
I love the people & the community of the radio station, & our focus on local Columbus & local Ohio. We all say we're family, & we are. You don't find that sense of family in any other work place besides a locally owned & operated company.
What band would you enjoy sharing a car ride with to Wyoming?
At the moment, I think being cooped up in a car with the dudes from Yeasayer would be radtastical. They travel the world, their Instagram feed is always uber entertaining, I'm sure they would have crazy awesome stories to tell, & I really want to be friends with them! Ha, sorry for the fangirl moment.
Why must everyone experience a concert with Mark Jaworski?
Oh boy. This is it's own beast. If you aren't ready for the high fives & the 'woohoos' & the stomping & the jumping & the singing/shouting along to all the songs, you don't know what you're in for. But it makes for a really majorly fun concert experience!
Top 3 Favorite Bands?
So. Difficult. We'll do top three bands of the moment to make it a bit easier.
1. Of Montreal
Most you would pay to see The Beatles play with The Rolling Stones?
Realistically, probably a paycheck, because I know the second paycheck of the month would be able to (barely) get me by.
Your dream lineup for a CD102.5 Summerfest (10 bands)?
This would probably change from week to week, but at the moment, I think the lineup I would absolutely lose my sh*t over would be:
The Strange Boys
Hanni el Khatib
Would you rather get a tattoo of a guitar, saxophone or microphone?
Can I switch it all up & say piano keys? Good.
How do you Rock Local?
I eat local (Commonwealth Sandwich bar, yum!), I drink local (Watershed Gin & Bourbon!), I am rather immersed in the local music scene, & I book bands for the Local Love series, featuring Ohio local bands & brews & liquors!
