WXDU 88.7 FM
PO Box 90689
Durham, NC 27708
Tune in Saturday (12/14) for a special broadcast of the massive, seven hour release Daughter of Darkness by Natural Snow Buildings. This recording was originally released as a limited-run, six cassette box set in 2009. Earlier this year, Ba Da Bing! Records released box sets in CD and LP formats of these mostly side-long drones. Natural Snow Buildings is a French duo consisting of Mehdi Ameziane and Solange Gularte. Here's a great introduction to the band published earlier this year in The Out Door.
Starting at 9am, we will play Daughter of Darkness in it's entirety with minimal station interruptions. We also plan to play a bonus track originally found on the Daughter of Darkness V release.
In October of 1983, Duke University’s AM radio station flipped over to FM with the broadcast of David Bowie’s “Station to Station,” and marked the birth of WXDU - 88.7. Celebrating 30 years of broadcasting, WXDU is throwing a party at the Duke Coffeehouse on Saturday, November 9th. A testament to the lively interplay between WXDU and the wider community, organizers say several old Triangle bands are reuniting for the show. The line-up features long time members of the WXDU staff and many supporters of the station.
