I get paid by the Communist Party to party with Chinese rockstars AMA
Hey, big family! I created a show for a public radio station in Beijing nearly three years ago, exclusively about independent and underground Chinese music. Since then I've been sent to Shanghai and three other large cities in the interior to interview bands, having interviewed close to 80 so far. As an American I feel thrilled to be doing this job and discovering all this great music while having the chance to hang out with so many brave and interesting people. I can talk about Chinese music, my job, living in China, etc. AMA!
Edit: WOW front page! If you are more interested now than you were before about Chinese music, you have certainly made a lot of Chinese musicians very happy today, Reddit! Please follow my show because that's exactly what it is about! 非常感谢！时差 太多了，晚安！It's nearly 3 am here, good night!
Edit2 So I got up early to answer more questions but now I really gotta go!
I told Residence A the reaction they got and they are THRILLED! It seems most commenters liked them the best (yay!) so I made a subreddit for them /r/residencea . I'll respond to everyone's PMs asking about how to get their record in due time. I was planning to interview them again on the radio in a few weeks...now we have a very interesting subject to discuss!! I also made a subreddit for the show /r/crisoundstage for updates about ALL kinds of Chinese music!
