WXDU is presenting an awesome show at the Duke Coffeehouse. Nathan Bowles, Wood Ear, and Wooden Wand alltogether, and of course it's free with your Duke ID, and $5 for anyone without an ID. Things get going at 9.
I've been thinking about it for a while and tomorrow I'm really going to do it. My shift is 1 hour and the song is 62 minutes long. I'm going to play it. The track is called Heaven Sent and it's the title track from their 1997 album. If you don't know about Half Japanese, you can learn some more here: www.jadfair.org and here: en.wikipedia/wiki/Half-Japanese. Half Japanese was formed by David and Jad Fair in 1974.
WXDU and Three Lobed Records are live at King's Barcade from Noon until 5! Come hear the great lineup of performers. But if you can't make it to the show, just tune into WXDU and listen to the sets live on-air!
WXDU's 6th Annual Record Fair will take place on Saturday, October 1st from 11am until 4pm at the Duke Coffeehouse on Duke's East Campus. Record vendors and collectors from around the southeast will be there with a huge variety of great records, cd's, and collectibles. Also, Will & Pop's and Pie Pushers will be there if you want some food while you dig through the record bins looking for a great deal.
The event is free and open to the public.

Tuesday 3/16/10. 11:30am. We're having some work done on our transmitter, but stick with us, the engineers are on the case and things should be normal soon.
A Hawk and A Hacksaw visited the studios on September 21st and talked to Robbie and Phil B. They also played a few tunes. You can download it all HERE!
Sorry for the late notice, but we just talked to Sean of Still Flyin'. They'll be playing tonight (Tues 9/22) at the Local 506 with the Beets and Airwaves with a special appearance by Excalibrah. You can hear the interview on WXDU's iTunesU page: here.
I dj'd yesterday morning, and i have to say that Willie Nelson has returned to my personal listening rotation in a big way. His new album, teaming up with Asleep at the Wheel, is really excellent. Classic western swing songs. My toe is still tapping.
