Jersey Shore music helped bring unity to area

Charlotte Nagy had a front row seat to Superstorm Sandy.

Nagy, then a 16-year old living with her parents in Rumson, documented her experiences on video. She posted it to YouTube on Nov. 3, 2012, five days after the storm touched down at the Jersey Shore on Oct. 29.

“Hurricane Sandy: A Documentary” put a human face on the destruction.

“For me I hate watching it because it does feel like I’m reading a page out of a diary,” Nagy said. “I was so young and dramatic … But at the same time it was my way of expressing myself when it was such a crazy time and we didn’t know what was going on. There was no power. We didn’t know if there were people in Sea Bright. We didn’t know if people lost their lives. It was a scary time and for me it was my own creative

Stay Tuned: Music creates community


Many of us know, music itself is a gift, but we often don’t know the depth of that gift. The impact runs deep into ourselves, our souls, and our society. Music can give us identity, it brings us together, it helps us find our people, and music creates community.

In May, NVMS and Nate Chute Foundation held a Music and Mental Health panel including a music therapist, musicians, families and students.

In a Nate Chute PSA about music and mental health, a student claimed, “Music has helped me relate to other people through the community that I’ve built in orchestra. Being able to relate to people through music is just really amazing.”

Each summer NVMS partners up with Glacier Symphony and presents Festival Amadeus and Camp Festival Amadeus. Some children can struggle to find their niche. My son didn’t find his until sixth grade in cross country. A seventh grader

Spotify criticizes Ye’s comments, keeps his music

Oct 25 (Reuters) – As corporations around the world including Adidas AG (ADSGn.DE) cut ties with Kanye West, music streaming service Spotify Technology SA(SPOT.N) said it would not remove the rapper’s music unless his label requested it.

Music from the artist now known as Ye did not violate anti-hate policies, Spotify chief Daniel Ek told Reuters.

Recent antisemitic remarks made by the rapper are “just awful comments,” and would have warranted removal from Spotify for violating its policies, which prohibit hate speech, if they had been on a podcast or recording, Ek said.

But none of that content can be found on Spotify.

“It’s really just his music, and his music doesn’t violate our policy,” said Ek, adding, “It’s up to his label, if they want to take action or not.”

That has not happened.

Universal Music’s Def Jam label, which owns the copyright to West’s recordings from 2002 through

Public radio stations like ours provide music discovery for otherwise marginalized artists you won’t find on commercial radio. Stations like Indie 102.3 are small in number but huge in impact.

Music on public radio, like Indie 102.3, serves and connects communities across the United States like nothing else. The music on Indie 102.3 is locally curated and hosted. We are independent, serve the communities we broadcast to, and are supported by listeners.
