Rockabilly Roadhouse Radio with Hot Rod Scott & The Professor (Rock/Roots)
Hot Rod Scott & The Professor play highlights from their weekly program devoted to roots, rockabilly, and rock’n’roll. Local artists, live performances and exclusive cuts are the order of the day!
In-studio performance and interview with U.S. Girls
Join DJ KPC for an in-studio performance and interview with Philadelphia experimental rock artist U.S. Girls (Siltbreeze Records).
If the alluring moniker used by Megan Remy conjures images of volleyball teams or cheerleading squads, forget it. Not that there’s any doubt that Remy — sorry, U.S. Girls — couldn’t rise and conquer either challenge.
Like fellow DIY ingenues Sally Strobelight and Inca Ore, U.S. Girls’ approach is deceptively ethereal and delightfully haunting; lithe, lysergic gamma rays of keyboard murk beamed over percussive bonk sort of resemble Diamanda Galas reinterpreting Suicide’s “Red Star”. And dig that cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Prove It All Night,” done in such an effortless, barbital lush you’d swear the air was filled with mescaline. Guess what? It’s not.
10/13/09 15:30:00 – 19:00:00
Not Truth, But Effect with KPC (Rock)
KPC plays “The Greatest Tracks I’ve Heard on WPRB,” focusing especially on those songs that changed my life, as well as themed sets on “Giving” and “Workin’ the Phones.” Last but not least, KPC will air his Concert Calendar Highlights at 5 p.m. & The Warped Moment of the Week at 6 p.m.

Transitional Soundscapes with TM5 (Electronic /Industrial/Goth)
DJ TM5 “transitions” between elements of electro, industrial, darkwave, EBM, clectronic, IDM, goth, ambient, 80s, and power noize. Stay tuned for an hour long block of local artists of those genres – something you can only hear on WPRB!
