Well, it's hard to believe, but Hopscotch 2014 is in the history books. Many thanks to Cory Rayborn of Three Lobed Recordings for another successful day-party collaboration. Thanks also to all the performers: Daniel Bachman, Zeke Graves, Nathan Bowles, Mike Gangloff, Jenks Miller + Rose Cross NC, Little Black Egg Big Band, Sunburned Hand of the Man, MV+EE, Mary Lattimore, Thurston Moore & Ryan Sawyer. Thanks to our dear friends at Kings Barcade for putting up with this silliness year after year. Thanks to Jonas Blank of NYCTaper for providing an immaculate audio feed for our simulcast, as well as [some] recordings for download after the fact (keep checking back to nyctaper.com for more uploads).
Thanks to all of our WXDU DJs who tweeted throughout the weekend. Thanks to Zachary Lechner for attending far too many shows, and writing up his thoughts about all of them in the following posts:
Tonight on WXDU, we've got the latest installment of Jukebox Graduates, Githens Middle School's Bruce Springsteen fan club show. The kids take to the air at 6:00, when they'll be highlighting the best of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
Next at 7:00, With Good Reason, in a program called "When America Took to the Air," shares the story of Aviation in America and how World War I fighter jets and stunt pilots led to the development of air mail and commercial flight. Later, they discuss the newest actor to take over the role of Doctor Who, who becomes the 12th Doctor in the show's more than 50-year run.
Then at 7:30, Martin Kang will have WXDU Sports. Martin will report the latest scores and sports news. He will also share a piece produced by Y-Press called "A Girl on the Football Team?!" which profiles one middle school girl who plays on her school's otherwise all-boy football team. Martin will also have a look at women who compete as boxers, in Radio Diaries' documentary "Teen Contender."
WXDU announces the addition of "Close Up the Honky Tonks," a new rotating Americana show, to the fall schedule.
"Close Up the Honky Tonks" starts this Saturday, September 20 and airs every Saturday from noon to 2 p.m.
Each week a new WXDU DJ will host, offering a wide variety of rockin' country, bluegrass and folk tunes, as well as some rootsier rock selections. Listen in this fall to hear theme shows, artist showcases and much more. And put in your requests to help shape the show!
We hope you'll tune in to "Close Up the Honky Tonks," Saturdays this fall from noon to 2 p.m. Listen in at 88.7 FM and WXDU.org.
Hey friends! My name is Shark. My show is every other Thursday night from 10 pm to 12 am. I like to play mostly things that are loud and fast. I also like to play things I've never heard before. In addition to DJing, I'm the events director for WXDU which means I do things like help plan awesome events and try to write professional-sounding e-mails. It's a ton of fun!
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!
