We took Studio One on the road May 21 for another live broadcast from The Basement venue of the Des Moines Social Club!  It was a great night of music, including two sets from the Iowa City indie band The Olympics.  Studio One has been hosting live performances from some of the Iowa bands appearing at the 80/35 Festival in Des Moines this July.  Have a listen as The Olympics give us a preview of what to expect when they take the stage at 80/35!

June 4th marks Studio One's live monthly broadcast at The Basement venue of the Des Moines Social Club from 7-9 p.m. Iowa Public Radio's Mark Simmet is hosting the event and will be spinning Studio One's usual great mix of indie rock, alternative, singer-songwriters and more!

What's it look like when I host a Studio One show?  You can find out this Thursday, March 5 at The Basement (901 Cherry Street) in Des Moines!  IPR is excited to be taking Studio One out on the road for the first time, partnering with the Des Moines Social Club for the entire 7-10 pm show.  I'll be playing new indie rock, singer-songwriters and roots-rock, plus a sprinkling of great older tracks.  It will be just like our usual great mix, except that I'll be spinning the discs live with an audience of Basement patrons.
