August, the final full month of summer, has somehow crept its way into 2019. As the long, exhausting summer days turn into cool, relaxing nights, you’ll need a playlist that can keep up. Keenon Snell, Digital Support Analyst for iHeartMedia, has curated the perfect blend of hot summer jams as well as emotive, mellow music that’s perfect for late-night listening. Listen below to get those final summer feels.
How come you choose the songs on your playlist?
Most of the songs are some of my all-time favorites and there are a few newer songs that I’ve been listening to a lot recently.
When do you listen to this playlist most?
It’s a playlist with songs I know and love so whenever I can’t decide what to listen to I can play this.
Who is your dream artist to meet and why?
I once missed an opportunity to meet Nas. I went to see Saul Williams in concert and midway through the performance I realized Nas was standing next to me. I wanted to say something to him but decided I would wait; when the performance was over I looked back to my right and he was gone.
Can you share your most memorable music moment experience?
I interviewed Lady Gaga once when I was an on-air personality for a radio station in Connecticut. This was before the release of her single, “Just Dance”, so she was relatively unknown. I didn’t know what to expect going into it but was immediately caught off guard when she showed up for the interview wearing basically a leather jacket over her underwear. It was a pretty unusual interview to say the least.
What is the best part about working at iHeartRadio?
The atmosphere and the people. It’s laid back and fun here but also everyone is focused and dedicated toward creating and maintaining a great product.
A fun fact about myself is…
In college, I was in a comedic metal band.
