Tonight on the Thursday Night Feature on WXYC, it's three hours of 60s and 70s pop from Southeast Asia! Shadow music of Thailand evolved from Western pop into its own sound, shifting languages from English into Thai, and taking on the thrust of local cultural, countercultural, and political movements. Pop sounds from Myanmar, Sumatra, Java, Cambodia, Singapore, Malaysia, and followed suit. Shadow a Go-Go, tonight, nine to midnight, only on WXYC 89.3 FM Chapel Hill.
