Gulls Window Circus

with Carl Thein

Tuesday 5-7pm

In the same way that a seagull locates the one good piece of food inside of a crumpled up brown bag blown underneath a car after a worker’s lunch break, Carl finds the one good song hidden at the end of side 2 on a dusty record in a forgotten corner of a record store, and brings new finds to you every week on Gulls Window Circus, weaving a story that never repeats itself as it ebbs and flows through time, geography and genre.

The Industrial Factory

with DJ Brian L

Sunday 8-10pm

The Industrial Factory's roots come from the sounds that nearly dominated ZBC in the mid to late 90s, back when industrial music had a firm grasp on what was then ZBC Rock. Now, over a decade later, the show has come full circle, showing that there's still life in a genre and an underground that many may have forgotten. Focusing on fresh, young acts that have taken their cues from dark disco, EBM, and the bands from the seminal Wax Trax! Label as well as shining a light on the classic artists that paved the way for them, The Industrial Factory remains to be the soundtrack for a dimly lit dancefloor.
