My KUTX: Nina Diaz

Posted by on Apr 29, 2016

When Nina Diaz sent over her playlist ahead of her guest DJ set, it made perfect sense. The Girl In A Coma singer/guitarist–and current solo artist, with a record out later this year–has a style that sits at the intersection of a lot of different styles: Morrissey, Bowie, Björk, the Beatles, Selena, hard rock. I can imagine her singing any of these songs on her playlist.

In addition to DJing some excellent songs, Diaz talks about touring with Morrissey, performing with Selena’s family, and fighting back against misogyny in the music industry. Tune in Saturday night at 6 p.m. or listen anytime in the player at the bottom of the page.
