Tonight's Thursday Night Feature on WXYC explores releases by drummer Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls. Sirota's sound is influenced by reggae, afrobeat, modal, bop and post-bop and is devoted to realizing the theory that "musicians and artists ... help carve out a better future for all of us" through making space for creative expression and resistance. As always, 9 pm to midnight on WXYC 89.3.

Tonight at 9 PM on The Global Music Show: WXYC DJ Michael Hughes and special guest Dick Langston, UNC Associate Professor of Germanic Languages, present "Nachahmer Rock: Investigating the Sounds of German 'Copycat' Pop." 89.3 FM if you're local / wxyc.org if you aren't.
