Performance Club, Now from concentrate!


I don’t know what’s going on with the folks over at WNYC. They just can’t seem to figure out how to solve a problem like La Rocco (Claudia La Rocco, that is…)

Does everyone remember the good old days when L. Ro. had her own blog, and it was like a huge success?!

And then remember when they took her blog away for no reason and folded her posts into the creepy Art.Cult thing, which we settled for, even though we pretty much had to skim past the other bloggers (maybe except for Nathan Lee’s film posts). Then there was that aborted attempt at a “live-chat” that lasted all of fifteen minutes. And then L. Ro. started the fiercest Performance Club, which is totally galvanizing a community of performance goers to see shit and then actually talk about it afterward?

And then, last week, they mysteriously started listing all of L. Ro.’s posts under “Performance Club,” even if the post had nothing to do with Performance Club?

Well now…they’ve created some new “Performance” page, under which they’re filing all of L. Ro.’s posts along with some other random radio interviews and such.

I just don’t get it. All the people want is their L. Ro., straight up, unfiltered, with the pulp, and without any fuss.

Don’t make me hate WNYC. I love WNYC. We all do. I was even listening to the Takemitsu/Adams double header last night on the radio. It was awesome, and I don’t even like Adams.

But please, please, please: For god’s sake, just give Claudia La Rocco her own god damned blog. She deserves it, and her people need it.


  1. Amen to that!

  2. Agreed. I’m sure it’s well intentioned, but I don’t understand why they decided to put so much effort into fixing something that wasn’t at all broken.

  3. Yeah, for realz!!

    I can’t even find things anymore! Having a hard time keeping up..

    COME ON WNYC! get it together!!
