The Brooklyn Pirate Radio Sound Map

Let's put the fun in fundraising! A $50 contribution to my Brooklyn Pirate Radio Sound Map project gets a personally guided walking and listening tour through Brooklyn's pirate radio neighborhoods.

The Brooklyn Pirate Radio Sound Map (BPRSM) documents a homegrown cultural phenomenon at once aesthetically vibrant, technologically tumultuous, and undeniably illegal. Every night, over 30 stations take to the air transmitting a wide array of programming to the West Indian Community. For the past f...

Murray Street Productions is looking for applicants for an internship to assist us with the production cycle of a major international jazz program: Jazz At Lincoln Center Radio.

Based in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood, Murray Street has built an international reputation for innovation in public radio. We are based in Tribeca, in downtown Gotham.

ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP:
A Murray Street intern must wear many hats, and be as comfortable handling the mundane details of the everyday (such as answering phones, making copies and preparing mailers) as s/he is with helping to conceptualize email campaigns and or placing microphones in front of jazz greats.

Every day is different at Murray Street, but some of the things you might end up doing include:

- Scheduling Interviews
- Social Media (Facebook, Twitter)
- Creating Mailings (Postcards, CDs, etc)
- Coordinating Program Production Schedules
- Archiving Jazz at Lincoln Center concert recordings
- Assisting at concert recordings or recording interviews
- Assisting in marketing campaigns (Station outreach, E-campaigns, writing marketing copy)
- Writing and producing promos
- Reviewing/Editing

The internship is UNPAID (though we do reimburse you for subway fare) but some of our brightest interns have stayed on as paid employees after their internship expired.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN AN INTERN:

- First and foremost: impeccable communication skills
- Ability to multitask in an environment with ever-changing priorities
- Solid writing skills, with the ability to work clearly and efficiently through Email
- Strong administrative skills with a focus on production process/coordination
- Ability to work independently with a strong sense of personal responsibility
- Familiarity with social media, ProTools, microphones and/or recording techniques is a plus,
as is interest/familiarity with jazz music and history

WHY YOU SHOULD BE EXCITED ABOUT THIS POSITION:
Murray Street is an amazing training ground—a very small office that gives huge responsibilities to interns that prove their worth. We are steeped in music and culture and have connections not only to other public radio institutions (NPR, PRI, PRX, etc) but also with key non-profit organizations within New York City: Jazz at Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, and the Association of Independents in Radio.

This job places you in the center of NYC's vibrant jazz culture, interacting with institutions as large as Lincoln Center and as iconic as the Village Vanguard.

If you want to learn how to become a self-sustaining independent producer within public radio this would be THE internship for you. This internship would start at the beginning of March and run through the end of May with the option to extend into the summer.

APPLY:
Please send us a cover letter (no more than 250 words) along with your resume—and please be specific about why you would be a good fit for our internship and why Murray Street would be a good fit for you. Also please include a writing sample—expository writing and broadcast copy (if you have it). If you’ve produced any audio or video pieces, please feel free to include them as well.
Email your application to Josh Landes at [email protected]
or send it to us via snail mail:

JazzStories: Abbey Lincoln

Abbey Lincoln was raised in a house without a television or radio- just a record player and collection of jazz LPs. That's where she heard Billie Holiday, and knew that she too was born to sing. Lincoln's talents extended beyond the stage to the screen, earning her a Golden Globe nomination in 1969's For The Love Of Ivy. Her passion for equality took her to the thick of the civil rights movement with political lyricism and an appearance on Max Roach's seminal We Insist! record from 1960. Lincoln passed away in Manhattan in 2010 at the age of 80. Producer Orla King presents this Steve Roland interview with Lincoln that delves into her life, her love of music, and her words.

"The artists are the ones who make it possible for people to remember what the time was like, and who was there, and what we did as human beings. We know what it was like in the time of Billie Holiday, and we know what it was like in the time of Bessie Smith."

JazzStories: Warren Wolf

The vibraphonist Warren Wolf grew up in a musical family in Baltimore, Maryland, beginning lesson's on his father's Marimba at age 3. Now in his mid-30's, Wolf is an in-demand sideman for groups like the Aaron Diehl Quartet and Christian McBride's "Inside Straight." Wolf also leads The Wolfpack, a group featuring his original compositions.

"I did a lot of practicing with my dad. We were practicing five days a week Monday through Friday for 90 minutes a day starting at the age of 3 up all the way up to 17. So, it was 30 minutes on the Marimba/Vibes, another 30 minutes on drums, another 3 minutes on piano. As far as styles of music that...

Replete with hilarious stories of goldern era Jazz shenanigans and his own story of growing up alongside his idols, this intimate conversation with producer David Goren is not to be missed!

"The music is not just the music. It's a reflection of how to live. I think I started out I just really liked the sound of the music and I had no idea how rich it would end up making my life, to meet these people and travel around and have a chance to play. It's kind of amazing when you think about…

JazzStories: Mulgrew Miller

This week on Jazz at Lincoln Center radio, JazzStories brings you the life of Mulgrew Miller in his own words. The late pianist reflects on touring with Ellington, performing in churches, and his relationship not only with the music but with his instrument. A fond reminder of a life well lived.

“I think of a lot of things when I’m playing the piano and one of the last things I think about is the piano…you try to somehow think and feel like a singer or horn player sometimes to get the piano to do something it doesn’t naturally do.”

"When I started to play jazz...I started in the middle. I wanted to play Coltrane,Charlie Parker, and all of that stuff first...
