Lagunitas Brewing Company will be on site, and we will be collecting donations to benefit Durham Public Schools via DonorsChoose.org. The whole event is free, open to the public.

Rain or shine
Tune in at 6:00 tonight for the latest episode of the Endless Frontier, WXDU's science news and interview program.
Then at 6:30, WXDU News reports on the noose that was hung from a tree on campus on April 1. Tonight's show will examine the historical significance and modern meaning of the noose symbol, reactions of the Duke student body and the response of the University administration.
Next at 7:00, WXDU Sports looks forward to next season for Duke's men's and women's basketball teams, plus news from Duke's men's and women's Lacrosse and men's and women's Track and Field squads. Then stay tuned for the conclusion of the Hyzdu Diaries, the audio chronicle of former Major Leaguer Adam Hyzdu's quest for a starting spot in the big leagues.
Tune in at 6:00 tonight for the latest installment of Jukebox Graduates, the program produced by students in the Githens Middle School's Bruce Springsteen fan club. Each month, the kids share stories and songs spanning the Boss's career.
Goodnight Gracie, the show that revisits the Golden Age of Radio, is next at 7:00. Tonight’s program features a 1940s-style battle of the sexes through the eyes of the characters of two popular working-class comedies of the era: Fibber McGee and Molly and The Life of Riley. First on tonight's program, in a December 8, 1942, episode titled "Women are Taking Over," we join Jim and Marian Jordan, the husband and wife vaudeville duo-turned radio team better known as Fibber McGee and Molly, as Fibber is upset by the wartime influx of women into the workplace. Then we'll meet Chester A. Riley, played by William Bendix, who tries to prove women are--and should be--inferior to men in a January 1, 1948, episode of The Life of Riley called “Equal Rights."
WXDU is incredibly excited to announce our final show of the Spring semester. On April 21st, the prolific and irreplaceable OBNOX, aka Bim Thomas, brings his noisy Noxbeats to Duke Coffeehouse for the first time. With him are negative rockers WINSTON FACIALS, and the rattling rythym & blues trio FLASH WANDS. Ear plugs recommended. Join us, yes?
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!
