Eugene Bolton, aka DJ Swag Commander
Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. He currently resides in Music
City, USA, Nashville, Tennessee. From a young age Eugene has loved
traditional Big Band/Swing music from the 20s through the 40s. He
always loved its high energy and the fact that it was so danceable. He
saw some links on the internet for some videos described as Electro
He was immediately hooked! He decided to promote Electro Swing in
Nashville,TN, and began amassing a library of Electro Swing music.
Co-administrator of the Electro Swing group on Facebook and sole
administrator of the Electroswing Family Facebook page, as well as
Founder and President of Music City Steampunk Consortium, he has
developed contacts and relationships with many of the Electro Swing
musicians, producers, and DJs all over the world. So popular in Europe
and some American cities, it disturbed him that the city most known for
music, Nashville, did not have any Electro Swing scene. So, as Swag
Commander Promotions, he began trying to get venues to bring the genre
to his city.
Eugene (aka Swag Commander) loves the genre so much he wanted to expand
his Electro Swing promoting and DJing even more. So he has come onboard
with Radio World Indie, to be our first ever Electro Swing DJ.
Rain, aka Kamarah
Host and producer of “Indie Lounge with Kamarah,” Rain says
“Music is the blood which flows through my veins; it’s the air I
breathe. The very first music I heard was boogie-woogie blues and from
that point on I was hooked.” Born in Chicago and raised in the suburbs
in the 1960s and 70s, she says “Radio was what was important to me. I
used to listen to AM stations WLS and WCFL and begged my mother to buy
me 45s rather than Barbie dolls. I would go to sleep with the radio on
under my pillow, absorbing the soundtrack of my generation. My dream
was to be on the radio where I could ‘be’ with the music.”
Fast-forward a few decades when Rain moved to Albuquerque and realized
her dream of being on the air at community radio station, KUNM-FM. “I
had no idea that I could be part of such an amazing community and to
learn to do what I loved. As a Freeform DJ I programmed my own shows
which meant I got to spend a LOT of time in their massive music library
which housed not only cds but also the largest vinyl collection of any
station in the state. I was a kid in a candy store!”
Being a part of the station naturally lent itself to networking in the
local music community which led to writing for a couple of the local
music magazines, Transmission and Hyperactive Music Magazine where she
got to employ her journalism chops. When asked what her proudest
achievements have been she cites interviews with such stars as Billy
Idol, Shinedown, Static X and Relient K to name just a few. It was
during this time that KUNM announced a lucrative opening for a host and
producer on its “Ear to the Ground” show which featured live
performances and interviews with local bands. Rain jumped at the
chance and was selected. “I cherish that time, when I met and worked
with so many great folks and got to be a part of a wonderful vibe in
Albuquerque. The relationships that were forged have lasted to this
day, and that means a lot to me.” In addition to hosting and producing,
she’s also got engineering and remote show production under her belt.
“We got to record a lot of live shows outside of the KUNM studios and
that was great fun! Everything from doing a live broadcast in a remote
truck downtown during the Albuquerque Fall Crawl to the Adventure of
recording live outside in a dust storm for the day-long Madrid Blues
Fest. Those were some great days!”
Regarding the gig with Radio World Indie she says “This is serendipity. I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderfully
talented team and am looking forward to bringing our listeners the very
best music from The Heart of The World!”
A few other professional highlights include the following:
Founder of the ABQ Music Association
Charter Member of the New Mexico Music Commission
Charter Member of the Albuquerque Music Advisory Board
Co-founder of the Hyperactive Music Fest
Manager of two music stages at the New Mexico State Fair
