Rusty Hodge, Music Director, cliqhop

In addition to being the music director for cliqhop, I am the founder of SomaFM. I program music for several SomaFM channels, including Groove Salad, Secret Agent, Drone Zone, Space Station Soma and Digitalis.

Cliqhop has mostly been a group project, initially with DJ Zach driving the playlists, then Brendan B. and I took over. Now I'm the main programmer for cliqhop but Zach and Brendan still turn me on to new artists all the time. SomaFM has also now gotten a good enough reputation to get lots of great music sent to us directly by the artists, and the artists who send us music for cliqhop are usually sending us pretty amazing music. So these days, it's really easy to pick the music for cliqhop.
