My name is Chris Kocher. I’ve been a journalist for more than 20 years, and I’ve covered the entertainment scene for the Press & Sun-Bulletin in Binghamton, N.Y., since 2005. I sometimes write about events in Elmira and (every once in a while) in Ithaca.
In the fall of 2011, I fulfilled a long-standing desire to host my own show on WHRW, Binghamton University’s free-format radio station. The Signal – a mix of music and interviews – airs at 7 p.m. Eastern every Tuesday. (During the semester, it’s a 90-minute show; between semesters or during the summer, it’s three hours.)
With this website, I’m finally going to put online some of the best interviews from the archives, which include local, national and international musicians and other performers. Hope you enjoy.
