This Week on WXYC
Friday, October 9, 2015

Hi everyone,
Check out all this exciting stuff we have coming up on WXYC this week:
Tonight at 9pm: tune in to the Inside Track to hear the debut release from UK-based producer Luke Meads (aka EVM128). Expect to hear some great dance tracks influenced by the broken-beat movement that hit UK dance clubs in the early 1990s.
This week’s New Science Experience, tonight from 10pm to midnight, will feature WXYC's very own Anjan S and Ryan J. They'll be spinning some Hip Hop selections from Memphis, Chicago, and Atlanta. It should be a good time!
This Sunday on the Orange County Special, 11am to 1pm, we’ll survey contemporary American folk, including 2015 releases from the likes of Boduf Songs, Duke Garwood, Jessica Pratt, and more.
During this Sunday’s Sports Rap, 9 to 10pm, Diego M and Femi Z will be talking NBA off-season drama. That's right: we're talking Matt Barnes, Derek Fisher, and much, much more. Diego and Femi will also cover this Sunday’s football action.
And on Monday’s Outside Track, 9 to 10pm, check out the shimmering black metal sounds of Locrian on their latest record, Infinite Dissolution. Out of a cinematic and sweeping soundscape the group carves apocalyptic shadows and ghostly dirges, and we're all for it.

This Week on WXYC
Friday, October 2, 2015

Hi all,
It’s finally October, the spookiest month of them all! It’s also Friday, arguably the best day of the week, and time for me to let you know about some of the programming we have coming up on WXYC.
Tonight’s Inside Track, 9 to 10pm, will be some PIPIN' HOT techno tracks from Carrboro sweetie Nathan Taylor (not to be confused with WXYC Music Director n8 Taylor). His 11 track self-released album, Mainsprings of My Desire, is dark, uptempo, and the perfect way to start off the first weekend of October.
On tonight's New Science Experience, 10pm to midnight, we'll hear a choice mix of off-kilter pop jams from NSE resident DJ HI_MOM and then some screwed up beats and broken electronics from John A.
Tune in for a special Hell or High Water this Sunday from 1 to 2pm to get ready for this Tuesday's Thomas Wolfe Prize and Lecture honoring author (and musician) Clyde Edgerton. The show will feature his album Walking Across Egypt, which is accompanying music to two of his novels.
You can catch On-Air Confessions with DJ Lon this Sunday from 9 to 10 pm, where we'll discuss ~stinky confessions~, debut our new Twitter feed, and put phone calls on air!
And this week's Outside Track, Monday 9 to 10pm, will be the release Sounds & Cries of the World by Jen Shyu. On top of being an esteemed experimental jazz vocalist, composer and multi-instrumentalist, Jen Shyu is also known for the intensive research and fieldwork that goes into her music. Very mindfully composed with a base layer of jazz, this album is the product of Shyu’s travels and studies in East Timor, Korea, Indonesia, and Taiwan.
