This Week on WXYC
Sunday, June 28, 2015

Hi everyone,
Here are some of the cool things that will be featured on WXYC this week:
Broken Music, today from 2 to 3pm, will feature Eli Keszler, a multi-instrumental musician from New York. He plays things like sheet metal, engines, microprocessor-controller motors, and piano strings, often experimenting with percussion. His past in punk rock is only vaguely audible in his solo work. Much of his work is installation art, but his recorded works are equally ambitious. Collaborations with Ashley Paul, Tony Conrad, and Ambarchi are all notable.
Tune in from 5 to 6pm today to listen as the WXYC Reports team absconds with the sounds of other peoples voices and presents them as the substance of their own creation, exploring the theme of "appropriation" in one hour of story driven analysis and questioning, probing the topics of sex, gender, race, relationships, literature, and fan fiction.
From the host of Backyard BBQ, tonight 8-9pm:

On this week’s Sports Rap, tonight from 9 to 10pm, we'll be talking about the top picks of the NBA Draft, Charlotte's pick in the NBA Draft, the women's World Cup, and the U.S. matchup against China in the cup.
And on Monday 9-10pm, the Inside Track will be the album With Miur from Japanese experimental artist Keigo Igarashi's solo project Fifto. With Miur is a collection of mostly glitchy, sputtering minimalist soundscapes that verge on catchy.

Check out some of the stuff we have coming up on WXYC this week:
On tonight’s Outside Track, at 9pm, we’ll be hearing Jamie XX’s new album In Colour. This album is full of some hard-hitting club jams with a melancholic twist.
After that, we're bringing the club to you on tonight's very special broadcast of the New Science Experience! Tune in from 10pm to midnight to hear the sounds from the Wild At Night party at the Nightlight in Chapel Hill. Expect dark and brooding vibes from Raleigh artists Eyes Low and Blursome and hypnotizing rhythms from their collaborative project Choked Out. The broadcast will also feature DJ support from DJ duo Hot Local Teens.
On Hell or High Water, Sunday 1-2pm, we’ll be listening to various girl groups from Detroit in the 1960s and 70s. Tune in to hear some R&B, soul, and Motown from groups like the Primettes, the Kittens, Corvells, and more!
Broken Music, 2-3pm on Sunday, will be a tribute to American jazz saxophonist, violinist, trumpeter, and composer Ornette Coleman.
On a special Father's Day edition of Sports Rap, Sunday 9-10pm, your host and his dad will be discussing the conclusion of the NBA finals, the end of the Stanley Cup Finals, and what it's like to grow up an NC State fan and then go to Carolina. Calls are encouraged from dads or for sports stories about dads!
And Monday’s Inside Track, from 9-10pm, will feature the Supreme Jubilees. Originally starting off as a traditional gospel quartet from Fresno, CA in the late 1970s, the Supreme Jubilees are a Christian soul group. Tune in for smooth bass riffs, funky drumming, and ~heavenly~ vocals.
