Exploring the spectrum of darkwave and post-punk

Tagged as: , ,
Heather Vee loves wearing black, can’t apply eyeliner to save her life, and hosts Radio Oscura, Downtown Radio’s show exploring the spectrum of dark rock, both classic and new, from gothic and deathrock, dark/coldwave, ethereal, sinister synthpop, and dark cabaret, to apocalyptic neofolk, southern gothic, neoclassical, and menacing post-punk, post-rock, and post-industrial. If it’s dark and moody, it has a home on Radio Oscura.

Heather Vee is a preacher’s kid, an Aquarius, and has worked in media retail her entire teenage and adult life while doing freelance writing on the side. When she was a college freshman she DJed for the university radio station she listened to religiously as a high school freshman, followed a handful of artists and bands around the country in her twenties, and spent her thirties interviewing some heroes and writing a few books. She also occasionally hosts the Shufflemancy Rock Mix here on Downtown Radio.

She currently works as a freelance web designer and administrator and frequently wishes all her library holds wouldn't come off hold within days of each other.
