paperjam: First Impressions

paperjam began after Bel Poblador and Janice Sapigao discovered they had a mutual love and nostalgia for throwback music from the 90s and early 2000s. Wanting to share their love for throwbacks while adding punch and intellect to female narratives on the radio, they decided to create their own show at CalArts’ radioKCIA. This is paperjam’s first podcast for Trop, and the theme of First Impressions fits right nicely. The song they’ve chosen to discuss is “Remember the Time” by Michael Jackson. Like paperjam on Facebook or follow them on Twitter @paperjamkcia.
