Jared McNett, a recent graduate of Truman State in Kirksville, Missouri, has signed on to write music reviews for the KKFI 90.1 FM website. He has written several reviews from nationally-renowned artists such as Jay-Z, Okkervil River, Willis Earl Beal, and Beck, among others, but may also be covering concerts and local and regional performers.
His review of Jay-Z’s Holy Grail Magna Carta release this month is thoughtful and shows a solid grasp of hip-hop and music, in general. You can catch Jared’s musical insights in in the KKFI’s Music Reviews section.
KKFI welcomes Jared’s contribution to the radio station’s dedication to airing music not heard on other area radio stations. In Jared’s own words:
Proud 2013 graduate of Truman State University were I studied as a Comm-Journalism major. Worked for four years as a DJ and music manager at KTRM 88.7 FM (The Edge), the on-campus radio station. Music and writing are two of my greatest passions, so why not have the two intermingle for a career? I currently run a music blog (allfreshsounds.blogspot.com) and have lived in KC for my entire life. Any questions?
