On tonight's Thursday Night Feature on WXYC, Tim Carless celebrates the often misunderstood Dexy's Midnight Runners. The band, led by the enigmatic, at times seemingly idiotic, but always brilliant Kevin Rowland, is one of the lost treasures of post-Beatles English musical landscape. In anticipation of their first release since 1985, Tim will be playing the three studio albums that they cut between 1980 and '85, in addition to some live recordings. Tune in nine PM to midnight at 89.3 FM.
