Up next at 6:30: B.B. King passed away Thursday at the age of 89. Listen as award-winning producer Paul Ingles pays tribute to the blues legend in a one hour program titled "B.B.'s Blues: A B.B. King Appreciation."
Then at 7:30, Martin Kang will be in the studio with WXDU Sports. Tonight's show focuses on Duke lacrosse, as both the men's and women's squads have begun NCAA Tournament play. Martin will have post-game comments from coaches and players after the women's squad won their first trip to the semifinals since 2011 after yesterday's win over Princeton. He'll also share what coaches and players had to say following the men's loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes in the first round.
Check out the latest installment of Jukebox Graduates tonight at 6:00. Listen as the students in this Githens Middle School Bruce Springsteen fan club span the Boss's career with music and anecdotes in their monthly show.
Next at 7:00, stay tuned for Goodnight Gracie, where we revisit the Golden Age of Radio. Tonight’s show takes a sinister turn, following the adventures of The Shadow and The Whistler.We’ll start with a November 28, 1948, episode of The Shadow called “The Wig Makers of Doom Street.” On the air in various forms from 1930 through 1954, the Shadow answered the question, “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?” each week, assuring listeners that “crime does not pay.” The series shared the story of Lamont Cranston, a man who learned the ability to “cloud men’s minds” and become the Shadow, his invisible alter ego, and Margo Lane, his trusted companion. Later in the program is a similarly ominous radio crime drama, one whose narrator, like the Shadow, possesses omniscient knowledge of the crime world—The Whistler, and a May 25, 1952, episode called “Charming Hostess.” The Whistler taunts the “men and women who have stepped into the shadows,” finding delight when their perfect plans inevitably crumble, just as he knew they would.
No, we don't have a custom WXDU iPhone app. We've found something BETTER: an app that will let you listen to any streaming radio station: TuneIn Radio, powered by TuneIn.com. It allows you to record, pause & rewind streams, view cover art & artist info. And it's available for iPhone, Android, Palm and Blackberry!
