This Just In: WMBR Is Dumb

We are head to head against WMBR in Soundtap Madness, a March Madness style thing or something.

We won't be taken down by those dorks!  If you listen online, you can do that at soundtap, but, actually, we don't really care that much about winning the contest.

All we care about is giving college radio the all out war it's always wanted.  What better place to start than between Ann Arbor and Boston.  

They might have Aerosmith, but we have Iggy Pop.  They might have the New Kids on the Block, but we have Robert Ashley.

Sun Ra 100th Birthday Concert

WCBN 88.3FM Ann Arbor and SEMJA Present Planet D Nonet: Sun Ra 100th Birthday Concert

Thanks to Jerusalem Garden for providing the band with food!

Friday, April 4, 7 – 10 pm

In honor of jazz legend Sun Ra’s 100th Birthday and Jazz Appreciation Month, WCBN presents an evening of space jazz at UMMA featuring award-winning Detroit band Planet D Nonet. Founded by drummer RJ Spangler & trumpeter James O’Donnell, two eastside Detroit based musicians who’ve been playing together for over 30 years. The Nonet features players from such venerated groups as the Sun Messengers, Bon Ton Roule' and Johnnie Bassett & the Blues Insurgents as well as some talented young veterans. This phenomenal group can transition from scene to scene, playing the classic swing music of Ellington & Strayhorn, Fletcher Henderson, Count Basie & Benny Carter as well as more modern jazz by Sun Ra and Pharoah Saunders, and always with a Detroit twist and an eye toward turning people on to jazz music.

This event is co-sponsored by UMMA and the Southeast Michigan Jazz Association (SEMJA).
