This Week on WXYC
Monday, September 10, 2018

Hey everyone,
Here's what we've got in store for this week.
 

The musical theme this week on Wednesday Night Live is nostalgia, so we’ll be celebrating the angst of high school and awkwardness of middle school. We will be bringing back memories from kindergarten, all the way back to the crib. Between the songs, we will also have live storytelling, movie reviews, the weather, and a guided meditation. If you have a nostalgic song that you’d like us to play, text it to Jordan S @ 336-944-2984!
 

Tune in Wednesday night at 9 PM for your weekly visit to the aether with Starlight Observers. This show is dedicated to the deep listening sounds of sonic therapy, new-age spirituality and meditation. We'll be using this hour to primarily explore the explosive new age cassette phenomenon of the late 70s to mid 90s, as well as enjoying a variety of quiet musics from a plethora of traditions and locales. Turn down the lights, close your eyes and sink into everything.
 

This week on Free Samples:
Pittsburgh rapper and producer, Mac Miller, passed away Friday from an apparent overdose. He was 26 years old. To pay our respects, Free Samples and @inthecivic will dedicate a show to the Pennsylvania MC at 5 PM on this coming Thursday.
 

tnf :: sea shanties
The release of the film Moana two years ago had every kid singing the navigation songs created for Disney by various modern composers, but the history of sea shanties and songs goes as deep and wide as the Seven Seas themselves. From the islands of the Caribbean to the coasts of Germany and Poland, sea shanties have established themselves as a way for sea-farers to build rhythm into hard labor and stave off the harsher aspects of life on the water. This week's tnf will travel through time and space to explore the world's wide range of shanty traditions. Hosted by dj k-fin.
 
 
This week on Can I Ask You A Personal Question I will be interviewing David Deming, a bus driver for Chapel Hill who also runs a booth at the Really, Really Free Market. Among other things, we will be discussing how David moved here from Indiana after months of letter-writing between him and the woman who would eventually become his wife.

tnf :: hometown hideaways, vol 2: schoolhouse jazzmatazz
For it's second volume, Hometown Hideaway presents; Schoolhouse Jazzmatazz. Tune in to hear private press recordings of high school and college jazz bands. In the late sixties, high school band directors started adding elements of pop/rock tunes into their song choices, while college band leaders began composing their own tunes. This TNF will feature both lo-fi and very well produced high school and collegiate jazz from across the land, but in particular the last hour will be devoted to the deep orchestral funk of the Towson State University Jazz Ensemble composed and conducted by the underrated funketeer Hank Levy. Featuring Jack Bonney of Carolina Soul records and hosted by tall mountain.
