WXDU is thrilled to sponsor the first annual MANIFEST festival, Friday & Saturday October 14 & 15, in Chapel Hill. MANIFEST was founded to provide a safe, bigotry-free space for rad bands of women, queer & gender non-conforming people to rock out. Everyone is welcome!!! Get tickets and more info at manifestmusicfestival.com
It's time for our annual countdown of the top local releases of the year, as determined by a count of spins by all of our WXDU DJs.
Numbers 68-36 are being counted down Sunday 12/27 from 4-6 p.m, and numbers 35-1 will be counted down on Sunday 1/3, again from 4-6 p.m.
