Tonight's Thursday Night Feature on WXYC previews upcoming ProgDay Festival and is hosted by WXYC's own Howie Hoyt, who will be playing an overview of forty years of progressive rock of all types, with a special emphasis on bands that have played or will play at the ProgDay festival. ProgDay has been held in Chapel Hill each year for the last 19 years and features the best Prog/Jazz/Metal bands from all over the globe.
Tonight's Thursday Night Feature will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of that most blueswailing of British Invasion acts, the Yardbirds. Host Blastoff Bob and returning guest Jeff Jarema (local liner notes scribe for reissue labels like Sundazed Music) will spin three hours of the fuzzy guitar fireworks that launched a thousand garage bands. August 22nd, 9 to midnight, on WXYC 89.3 FM, online at www.wxyc.org.

Tonight's Thursday Night Feature on WXYC explores musique concrète, the creation of sound montage from recordings of birds, trees, street noise, voices, and other non-electronic sources, all remixed and electronically manipulated to form a composition of intertwined concrete sounds.
