It's my best hits of 2k11. What you gonna do about it?
I have the best show EVER today! In honor of Competition Week, I had the enormous privilege of doing a follow up interview with Karen Stewart and Howard Brown, the pioneering forces of sustainable design behind the beautiful brand Stewart + Brown. They were first on Sew & Tell almost exactly two years ago, on the December 11, 2009 show, hosted by DJ Audrey II. Since then, their clothing line has grown even stronger in reputation and recognition, and in October of this year, Karen and Howard were awarded the WGSN Global Fashion Award for "Most Sustainable Brand," beating out several other heavy-weight companies including Levi's and Marks + Spencer. On today's show, we have a rare opportunity to hear from these two experts in the field of sustainable fashion, who will talk about what's changed in the industry over the last ten years, the significance of their WGSN award, the strange plight of hemp farming in the U.S., and even a few Stewart + Brown holiday gift suggestions. Plus, Karen and Howard were DJ's with impeccable taste for today's playlist, and have assembled a mix featuring some of the favorite artists from the BTR catalogue, including Akron/Family, Six Organs of Admittance, Wilderness, Unrest and more. So tune in, turn up, and get ready to learn about the state of sustainable fashion in the U.S. today...
DJRePete’s all about the mix today on your BTR Wednesday, breakin’ thru with an enlightened blend to get your day started. Tune in for new alternative from Gregory Pepper & His Problems and Malajube, rock from the Dum Dum Girls and Love is All, and beats from Theophilus London and Amanda Blank. Plus, intermixed for fun, a few throwbacks from the likes of Sleeping In The Aviary, Hollerado, and the Violens. Check in with some new and vintage (?) today with DJRePete on BTR!
