The first ever WXYC Record Fair will be held at the Nightlight on Rosemary St this Sunday (December 6th) from 11am-5pm. This event is free (though we will gladly take donations if you feel so inclined) - so come on out to show your support for WXYC and snatch up some great music. We've got vendors coming in from all over the state with some great records at reasonable prices. We'll also be selling supercool 'xyc gear that makes for great holiday-time gifts. Good music, good people, and the bar opens at Noon! What more could you want out of a Sunday afternoon?

EXPECT: noise keg, enticingly plattered array of samples, engaging conversation, audio body shots, game of find-the-headphones & MORE

The same week a tribute album drops for New Zealand underground music veteran, and recent stroke sufferer, Chris Knox, WXYC will air a Thursday Night Feature retrospective on the enduring noise-pop scene he helped spawn. Moving back and forth between the ultra-pop and the ultra-noise and everything in between, and with everything from the long-going acts to the defunct and the upstart, the show will look at how the scene expanded to allow all of these groups to support each other in their often divergent, often similar goals for DIY music. Hosted by Jonathan W. 9pm

Tune in to this Friday's Inside Track, where new albums get played in their entirety, and hear the latest and greatest from Arrington de Dionyso (frontsperson for music group Old Time Relijun), which turns out to be a disc entitled "Malaikat dan Singa" (K records). I hear it's heavy on the throat singing and bass clarinet improvisation! 9pm

Start your Thanksgiving week off right by tuning in to hear local noise/performance-art legend Clang Quartet (Scotty Irving) play a live set on the Backyard Barbecue! There's even going to be a video later! Sunday at 8pm

Transmitting Now At 1200 Watts!
At around 10am today, WXYC switched over its signal to a new transmitter. Our power has increased from 400 to 1200 watts, and we are directional towards Raleigh, Durham and Apex (and Chapel Hill, of course). The first song played from the new antenna was Queen's "Radio Ga Ga." This comes after years of work and the station would like to thank everyone involved. We are all very excited and happy today.
