Titan Radio Playlist

In Arts & Entertainment

Cal State Fullerton’s Titan Radio DJs have created playlists for varying aspects of student life. Download these songs on iTunes or Amazon, or listen to Titan Radio online at TitanRadio.org.

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are gaining prominence in the music industry and have growing audiences within multiple genres. Major mainstream recognition for the Asian American and Pacific Islander community came with the introduction of Far East Movement into popular culture. Now Asian American artists are topping the charts.

“Everyone probably thinks Bruno Mars came out of nowhere,” said Chadwick Vargas, host of Titan Radio’s “Asian Persuasion Show.” “Not so, he’s been writing songs for a lot of artists we love today. It’s no surprise he’s on top of the iTunes charts with Far East Movement.”

Vargass’ playlist includes popular artists like the Far East Movement and Bruno Mars, as well as emerging artists from the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.

“I wanted the songs as a whole to convey what happens in the week or so leading up to (an exam),” Krie said.

Finding a parking spot can be time consuming and frustrating. Johnathan Rushing, host of “The David and Rush Show,” makes being stuck in traffic an all-out sing-a-long.

“You can’t get much better than blasting some…rock through the amps of your car to get your day to a rocking start,” Rushing said. “Take that, Starbucks!”

Morten Kristensen, host of “Off the Beaten Track,” which airs Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to noon, will rescue you from a workout rut with three very different songs. Download these songs to your iPod, and plug in when you hit the gym.

Whether it is upbeat trance music for running, hip-hop for lifting weights or soundscapes for cooling down, these songs will complement your workout routine.

“Turn the volume up, forget everything around you and just let the beat push you on,” Kristensen said.
