WCBN and Sweetland Center will host an interview with between Sweetland's Shelley Manis and Professor Laura Kasischke.  It will be broadcast live on WCBN. 

Sweetland Center for Writing's Word Squared lets you hear directly from U-M professors about their challenges, processes, and expectation as writers and also as readers of student writing. These conversations offer a rare glimpse into the writing that professors do outside the classroom and how they handle the same challenges student writers face. 

Laura Kasischke is the Allan Seager Collegiate Professor of English at the University of Michigan, where she has won a number of awards for her teaching, including the Henry Russel Award, 1923 Memorial Teaching Award, and a Distinguished Faculty Achievement Award.

WCBN Spotlight on Rebel Kind

14 November, 2014

Today - Rebel Kind

Ann Arbor based trio Rebel Kind released the album "Today" in March 2014. The band's sound is a combination of psychedelic folk and pop. Singer and guitarist Autumn Wetli was a founding member of the Ypsilanti-based band Bad Indians. The other two members of Rebel Kind are Shelley Salant on bass, and Amber Fellows on drums. "Today" is thirteen catchy songs with lots of echoes and blurry sounds. The tracks “Very Vivid Personality” and “Baby Baby Baby” are fun listens with a retro feel. Rebel Kind recorded the album in a frenzied day and a half. Amber Fellows said: “Recording with a little disorder or anarchy is exciting to me.” The listener can hear Rebel Kind's take on anarchy - and it works.
