About Travis Gass

I'm an editor on the Digital Desk at the Bangor Daily News. I'm also the host of West Of The Fields, a college radio show that has aired continuously on UMaine's WMEB 91.9 FM since 1998.

New music including Chvrches, Bishop Briggs, Pale Waves and First Aid Kit on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

I dug deeper into recent releases from The Shins, Porches and The Go! Team on the show this week, while the retro alternative set went waaaaay back to the late ’60s (and a bit of the early ’70s) to explore some of the garage rock, folk-rock, early electronic and psychedelic bands that went on to influence generations of punk, post-punk and alternative groups.

New music including Rhye, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Vera Blue and Charlotte Gainsbourg on this week’s West Of The Fields podcast

For the first show of 2018, I dug deeper into recent releases from St. Vincent and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, while the retro alternative set marked this year’s upcoming 20th anniversary of West Of The Fields with a block of tunes I played during 1998 (and into early ’99), many of which I haven’t aired since the ’90s!
