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.

Transformations 2/27/13 (Beatle Mania!!) and 3/13/13 and Radiozilla 2/24/13

Hi all! It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything so I apologize for that! But, the upside to that is now I have, not one, but THREE shows for your listening pleasure! Two episodes of Transformations and one episode of Radiozilla (an East Asia show).

On February 27th I had the entire three hour show and I took the opportunity to do an entire episode dedicated to The Beatles! I played Beatles music, Beatles covers, originals of songs that The Beatles covered, etc. It was really fun and I got several callers who seemed to really enjoy it. I wasn’t able to play exactly everything I wanted to because I ran out of time, but I think I played a good selection of Beatles-ness.

On March 13th I did just another freeform show. It was a really fun show for me. I played a lot of music that I know and love and I explored some music from people I know, but I hadn’t listened to yet.

Radiozilla was a fun experience. It was interesting to hear some music that is completely different from what I usually listen to.

So, I hope you enjoy listening to these shows as much as I enjoyed making them!
