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.

You might want to listen carefully to this week's broadcast as it could contain all or much of what's listed here.In addition to a rare example of an instrumental Rudy Vallee record, the mix combines comparatively obscure one steps, shimmies, waltzes, novelties, scat workouts and a rather bizarre configuration which can only be described as a human calliope. Note that "12th Street Rag" will be performed by the man who composed it: Euday "Eudie" L. Bowman.There is also a rural component which is expected to mingle nicely with the steadily morphing countryside. For those who are in a position to glimpse anything resembling a countryside.
