Robin James is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at UNC Charlotte and the author of three books... with a book about 97X in the works. She grew up listening to the station from age 11 on, including her time as an oboe major (yes!) at Miami University. Robin still has a fond place in her heart for the 97X/woxy.com music community, and the DIY ethos that made it truly unique. Dave and Damian talk to Robin about her research for the 97X book, the Modern Rock 500 and intersection of philosophy and music.
You can check out some of Robin's writing on her blog, It's Her Factory. She also wrote a great piece about the Modern Rock 500 for Belt Magazine.
