Interview: URB Magazine’s Raymond Roker Ditches Print
An interview I did with the LA WEEKLY on the announcement of URB going digital. The writer Dennis Romero has followed our career since our first year, having written a long piece on us for the LA Times circa 1991.
“I don’t have sympathy for those displaced by the media shift, and I’m as much a victim of if as anyone. That’s the cost of freedom: If people want to write long-form about music, they need to cultivate an audience that cares. But no crying.”
Knowing me, Dennis quizzes me about music philosophy, whether I’m as passionate today as in the past and what challenges we’ve had and will have in the future. He definitely hits all angles.
