Bloomington, IN, according to the popular standard "(Back Home Again In) Indiana," smells like "New mown hay."

I am presently pursuing a degree in ethnomusicology from Indiana University with a particular interest in both mid-century American popular music and audio preservation. As part of my thesis, I produced a one hour radio documentary about the Starday Records label which I hope will receive some radio airplay. In addition to my studies, I am also attempting to administer a healthy dose of honky-tonk, rockabilly, and Django-style jazz to the Hoosier masses and enjoy recording new songs whenever possible (see: www.nategibson.bandcamp.com). I'm still a Sox fan and my musical tastes are ever-expanding.
