Donate to WCBN!

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.

Give us a call or donate online, and keep listening.

Move Your Ass 7/3/13 and What It Is 7/5/13

Two shows for you today: the most recent Move Your Ass that I hosted, and my first time ever hosting What It Is! What it Is is WCBN’s funk, soul, and R&B show that runs every Friday from 8-10pm. This was my first time hosting the show and I had tons of fun with it. I tried to play a good mix of danceable funk, slower soul, from a variety of different time periods. And in the most recent episode of Move Your Ass, I explored a few exercise records, including an official US government record!
