Low End Theory

with DJ Ouroboros

Wednesday 8-10am

Welcome to Low End Theory. If I were to describe the aesthetics of Low End Theory as a musical territory or space, its borders would be provided by doom/stoner/psych metal on one side, contemporary prog and prog metal on another, experimental/electronic/folk on a third, and enclosed finally by the long arc of classic and contemporary post-punk that bends towards dub. The mission of this radio show is to conjure a farrago of heavy sonic fictions of sound, words, and music appropriate and fitting to the heaviness of the times. But fear not, this Low End Theory is not dour or depressing; on the contrary, we seek out the joyful and ecstatic in the acoustic depths of the low end’s vibrating, pulsing heart. And who among us does not need some joy anchored in the deep sonority of the low end, especially now?

Thursday

 

colorful nostalgia

with Emma

Thursday 7-8am

colorful nostalgia is all about that yearning for a time that never existed. a love that's slipped by, a euphoric feeling that is better in hindsight, and a life you could've known. at it's most energetic, it's pumped up indie pop that makes you feel alive, and at its most sad girl, it's crying on the bathroom floor. it's filled with all the big emotions that make it all worth it.

 

Airport Security

with Dean Moriarity

Thursday 8-9am

There is very little evidence to support the idea that the TSA prevents any contraband from making its way onto flights. Simply put, screening does not prevent shenanigans. An auditory visit to the stacks of the WZBC library!

All things pass, but some are remembered. Others sit still in relief, settled over time.

Ignore the Machine

with Bradley Jay

Saturday 3-5pm

 

The Shopping Accident

with Charlie Sedaka

Saturday 10-11pm

Music from years ago and music from the future. Rock and all sorts of other genres will crop up randomly. Just because something did not get played years ago does not mean it should be overlooked. And there is so much music out there that really needs, deserves to be heard, and that's what I do. I am not a great one for The Latest Thing, but I listen to anything and I hope you will too. Open your ears, make your own decisions, don't just listen to what everyone else is because of a brief "fashion".
