WRCT has set its autumn schedule and I'd like to call your attention to a
few shows of interest, unique composition and high quality. Aside from
Fear & Whiskey (same fear-time, same fear-station), you can also hear:
Set Theory, a two-hour show with shifting hosts concentrating on a
different theme each week (e.g. polkas, trucking songs, answer songs,
Detroit house, et cetera). Sundays 6-8pm, immediately followed by Lenny
Young's great two-hour jazz show Straight Up and Down.
Sound of Confusion, hosted by Monotone, a true devotee of obsure garage and
psychedelia. Mondays 10am-noon.
Shotguns, Booze, and Country Blues, hosted by Miss Fortune, whose tastes
run from acoustic blues and old-time music to the Minutemen. Tuesdays
Zombo's Record Party, hosted by Zombo. Imagine a garage sale of vinyl
hosted by SCTV's Count Floyd. Not evocative enough for you? Go here:
>. Wednesdays 4-6pm.
When The Hand Goes Up, The Mouth Goes Shut, Neil Donnelly's post-rock,
avant garde, Thrill Jockey/Drag City-centric show. Wednesdays 7-9pm.
Does Your Hometown Really Care?, hosted by Jason, who plays more obscure
country vinyl than anyone on WRCT, plus a whole bunch of other stuff.
Viva Le Mock, a run through a cornucopia of 80s, new wave, roots, country,
punk and other fun stuff hosted by the Mockster (a.k.a. Paul Nelson) Friday
nights from 9pm-1am.)
Black, White and Blue, an outstanding jazz and classical music show hosted
by Ignatios, Saturdays 9am-noon.
The Repugnant Stench of the Happy Fun Ball, WRCT's scary metal show. Rob
and Alan host Saturday nights from 6-9pm.
There's other good stuff on the schedule, but those are some of the things
we do best, and shows you couldn't confuse with anything on a Clear Channel
fight the power,
