Big news for Second Inversion! Beginning in February 2020, we will be launching a brand new weekly show on our parent station, Classical KING FM 98.1.
This show, titled Second Inversion, will air every Saturday night from 10-11pm PT and showcase musical selections from the 20th and 21st centuries. We will also highlight artists and upcoming performances in the Pacific Northwest new music community. Local listeners can tune in on the radio at 98.1, and the show will also be streaming worldwide online.
As part of this transition, Second Inversion’s 24/7 online stream will end, so that the resources needed to produce the new show on KING FM are available. The final day of the online stream will be Monday, August 19.
The decision to discontinue the 24/7 online stream was reached through conversations with many audience members, arts and community partners, internal staff, and station leadership. We ultimately found that a 24/7 streaming format is not the most impactful way to serve listeners or to serve the music itself. With a weekly show on KING FM, we will be able to provide the greater context and curation contemporary music deserves while also introducing it to many more ears: KING FM reaches over a quarter million listeners per week!
The current web publication and video production will continue as normal, providing users with album reviews, interviews, on-demand videos, concert recommendations, and behind-the-scenes access to the world of new and experimental music.
In all of our endeavors, Second Inversion remains committed to showcasing the breadth, diversity, and cultural relevance of contemporary music. We will continue to serve as a portal for new and experimental music in and out of the Pacific Northwest, and we look forward to the opportunities provided by our new format.
If you have any questions about these changes, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your continued support of Second Inversion, and stay tuned for more updates in the months to come!
