This Week on WXYC
Thursday, July 20, 2017

Join host Gabby B for tonight's Thursday Night Feature on Soulection at 9 PM. After beginning life as a college radio show on KBeach radio in Long Beach near LA, Soulection has grown into a multimedia platform with global reach. A self-described "record label, radio show and niche collective of creative music makers and programmers worldwide," Soulection now has a radio show on London's rinse.FM and uses social media and apps to spread their music, art, and style.
Soulection is less interested in adhering to particular genres or cultivating a cohesive "sound" than they are dedicated to finding and promoting "the sound of tomorrow." Their mission is to foster "community, discovery, transparency, DIY growth and the artistry of music."

We'll take a tour through the Soulection catalog, starting with some faves like Sango, Goldlink, Lakim and Taku. Expect also to hear some Evil Needle, Iamnobodi and plenty of others from Soulection's expansive discography.
This Sunday at 1 PM on Hell or High Water, DJ Monty Morris explores some of the deep soul and warm funk of the Memphis Sound. Led by Hi Records and Stax Records, Memphis, Tennessee labels put out some of the best American music of the 1960s and 1970s. We'll hear some of the hits and more obscure gems from Stax subsidiaries (Volt, Enterprise) and more regional labels like Goldwax and Pepper.
This week on Sports Rap, we’ll be talking about the nerd’s sport: marching band. Tune in this Sunday from 9-10pm to learn a little more about that thing you thought was lame in high school, hear about that one time at band camp, and listen to us discuss the athletic merit of marching band and determine whether or not it deserves to be recognized as part of the sports world.
