One Question Interviews: After Hours Radio

Nate Erickson and Jordan Compton (After Hours Radio)

SPB: What was your first CD (or record or tape, as applicable)? 

Nate Erickson: Greg, our bass player, and I both got our first CDs as gifts from our parents so they aren't very representative of our music taste at the time. Most of my music exposure growing up was from sharing MP3s with friends. Now I try to buy all my music at shows to support the artists I like more directly. The first CD I bought at a show was Trampoline by Steel Train. A friend of mine had an extra ticket to go see Gomez at St Andrew's Hall in Detroit when I was in 8th grade so I went along. Steel Train opened for them and they were by far the best act of the night. The CD definitely lived up to the live show and had some great guitar tones and pop/indie songwriting. I still have it, although the case is completely broken at this point. 

Jordan Compton: Our Keyboard/Synth player, bought his first album on Vinyl:

The first album that I bought myself was a used vinyl of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon in the 8th grade. I used to go on family vacation every year to Gatlinburg, Tennessee and it was there, hidden away in a flea market. I actually bought the vinyl a year before I had a record player to listen to it on. The next album I picked on my own was Brothers by The Black Keys in the same town but at a small record shop. The smokey mountains seem to have its own special vibrations.
