UNC professor and WXYC DJ Mark Katz hosts the Thursday Night Feature on WXYC along with guest Ken Weiss, a veteran of the music industry. In addition to being a music supervisor for film and television, Ken has published and managed artists from Broadway composers to Crosby, Stills, & Nash. Tonight, Ken and Mark chat about 1967: the Summer of Love, the peak of psychedelia and the rising tide of blues and prog rock. Tune in, 9-midnight.
Tonight on The Backyard Barbecue: "Fish Hips and Turkey Lips," a compilation of 3 NC indie rock bands, Small, Finger, and Motorolla (who later became Motorcaster), as well as a bunch of cheesy, unrelated interludes. Deets on the "18 Years of NC Poster Art" exhibit. Tracks by The Kingsbury Manx, Spider Bags, The Carolina Chocolate Drops + more.
For tonight's Thursday Night Feature on WXYC, Nanci O Is Hip Hop digs in the crates for classic A Tribe Called Quest just in time for the local release of the documentary about the group, Beats, Rhymes & Life. Tonight's lineup also features old Kanye & Jay-Z in honor of their joint album 'Watch The Throne', released this past week. Tune in 9 to midnight on 89.3 FM.
