KCOU's Directory Assistance Compilation

KCOU's compilation of 18 Columbia bands is now available. Directory Assistance is the first KCOU-produced CD, with help from Red Boots Recording Studio and AVG, of course. The first Directory Assistance Release Party with The Paparazzi, Autosleeper, Nonstop 3, and Catalina went very well. Thanks to everyone who came out to the Blue Note on April 11th. Directory Assistance Release Party #2 will be Wednesday April 18th at Shattered. Transponder 5/3, Arpad Leen, and Hot Carla will perform and Directory Assistance will be available for only $6... that's just $.33 per song! (Songs not labeled for individual sale!)



In April 2001 KCOU released its first-ever compilation CD. It is an 18-song, 64-minute foray into the sound of local music in Columbia, Missouri. It is available for the bargain basement price of only $6. You can pick one up at several downtown Columbia businesses including Whizz Records, Salt of the Earth, Streetside Records, and Guitar Finder. All proceeds from the sale of Directory Assistance benefit KCOU 88.1 FM, a service of MSA/GPC.

Also, don't forget to check out the CD release shows for a chance to see the bands on the CD in action.
