Text the DJ!

Technically, iPhone users: please iMessage the DJ; Android users: please Google Hangouts the DJ! (We still can’t receive texts to our landline number.)

Send a message to radio@wcbn.org and it’ll ding the DJ! (But not actually make a ding sound over the air, b/c that’s annoying.)

Thanks for your support of WCBN during our fundraiser!

Update: It’s over now! A thousand thanks to everyone who gave during our fundraiser.  It's thanks to you that we can continue to offer students at the U-M a unique creative and professional development experience like this—and that we can continue to broadcast the most special freeform, specialty, and talk shows for your listening pleasure.

If you forgot to give, though, it's not too late to give online!

DON’T THINK I’VE FORGOTTEN: CAMBODIA’S LOST ROCK AND ROLL tracks the twists and turns of Cambodian music in the 1950s and 1960s as it morphs into rock and roll, blossoms, and is nearly destroyed along with the rest of the country in the mid-1970s. 

Director John Pirozzi spent over a decade piecing together this documentary from rare footage and recordings, and conducted interviews with the few surviving Cambodian rock musicians from the era before Pol Pot.

This screening was organized by the Center for Southeast Asian Studies and is co-sponsored by WCBN; the Department of Screen Arts and Cultures; the School of Music, Theatre & Dance; and the Center for World Performance Studies.

Julia Holter on Living Writers!

On Wednesday, November 11, we broadcast a conversation with musician Julia Holter about her latest album Have You in My Wilderness with Living Writers guest host Elizabeth Wason. If you missed it, you can now listen here!

They spoke about writing music, making field recordings, what life is like when you’re bankrolled by a record label, and which is more fun: Scoring a film, or acting in one.

Living Writers airs every Wednesday, 5-6 p.m.(EST) on WCBN-FM, 88.3 Ann Arbor. The program can be streamed during show-time at www.wcbn.org and show archives are available as podcasts on iTunes.
