KWCW Show of the Week

Daniel Kim

Show Title: ‘Carry The Zero”

Time: Tuesday 10-12 p.m.

Hosts: Jenna Rolle

Ever wanted to learn about the subgenres of rock ‘n’ roll and its artists as well as the political implications of their music? Every week, “Carry The Zero,” hosted by senior Jenna Rolle, focuses on a theme, usually a subgenre of rock, and traces its evolution from the ’50s to the present. Rolle has learned that many of the genres she has covered stems from the Beatles, and so she features many Fab Four musical pieces. Two of her favorite shows were on Low Fidelity and British Invasion music.

Rolle has always enjoyed music and began the show as a way to hear about new music and learn more about the musical genres. Each week consists of a researched music genre, and Rolle hopes of learning more about what ties the songs and artists together as well as the historical roots and context of their music.

“Carry The Zero” is the quick and dirty tour of musical genres and the artists who produce them, spanning from the 1950s to the present. Fascinated by the way music has shaped culture, Rolle tries to include as many little snippets of culture as possible, finding the roots to its contemporary form in a condensed way as to truly spot the similarities and differences between the early proponents of the genre and what it has become.
