Willy Evans is a graduated senior in Journalism and Mass Communications. Kari Bingham-Gutierrez is a graduated senior in English. They host the Movie Madhouse, a show focused on film reviews and discussions. You can hear the show every Sunday at 5:00.
How would you describe your program to a new listener?
Willy – The Movie Madhouse is a show dedicated to exploring movies both as works of art and entertainment. We tend to be very eclectic in our movie choices. One week we’ll talk about the latest Marvel movie, and the next we’ll talk about the work of Wong Kar Wai or David Cronenberg. We try to avoid giving simple reviews (thumbs up, thumbs down, star ratings, etc.), but instead try to center our show around discussion.
How did you get started with KSDB?
Kari – Like many students, I brought my car with me to college my Freshman year. Most of the stations I listened to back home didn’t work in Manhattan, so I tried to find something new. Luckily for me, I stumbled upon 91.9. Through the station and friends in JMC classes, I learned that I could be on the radio, too. However, since I’m extremely timid and shy, it took me about three semesters to actually enroll in the class. It’s been the best experience I’ve had at K-State.
Willy – I had heard people talk about KSDB in a lot of the JMC classes I was taking. After trying, and not particularly enjoying, other student media groups on campus I joined KSDB, and immediately wanted to get involved in as many ways as possible. It felt like the only place on campus where you could truly follow your passions.
