WAMU’s Bandwidth


About me on Bandwidth.

I started writing for Bandwidth, the music website for WAMU 88.5, back in 2015. Even when I was studying abroad in London, I managed to do a Facetime interview and send my copy in. I love writing for Bandwidth because I get to talk with very interesting, talented and creative people from around the area. I have so much love for the DMV music scene.
