WCBN’s annual fundraiser is running until February 21. Your support during these ten days puts new music on the shelf and fixes broken turntables; we need you for our day to day. We ask now that you “resubscribe” to the freeform radio that you love, and support the continued education and cultural enrichment of students at the University of Michigan.

Move Your Ass 6/19, Subbing 6/21, Yazoo City 7/1, and Super Awesome Music Times 7/2

Lots o’ music for ya today! Catching up on a few miscellaneous shows I hadn’t gotten to adding yet, like Move Your Ass and part of a show that I subbed. I only subbed part of the show because I was sick, and then Michael came in to take over (the last few tracks are what he played, but were records I picked out I believe). For Move Your Ass I experimented with speeds and layering, with a hilarious and slightly disturbing result. Also my second go at the pre WWII blues show, Yazoo City Calling! And my latest episode of Super Awesome Music Times, where I plan a wide range of things including spoken word, new music, old music, fake science, real science, all sorts of stuff! So enjoy!
