It’s from 9:30 AM to 6:30 PM and it literally has every single thing:
Music (The Brodegas, The Brummy Brothers and Manifested)
Farmers markets (with produce, meat, dairy, baked goods and other delicious things)
A workshop for making butter (!!!!!!!)
“Tough Udder Farmhand Competition“
Guys. PONY RIDES. And HAY MAZES. And INFORMATIONAL SEMINARS!
The seminar topics range from crop yields, special needs education, local wine and cheese, and “Chicken Chat”.
Every year, Princeton the university comes together with Princeton the town and we have a giant celebration of food and games and more food. There will be music and performances and art and student organizations and WPRB PRINCETON ONE OH THREE POINT THREE.
There might be iguanas but also maybe not.
Come check out our table on Sunday, April 28th from 1-6PM for free buttons and pins, plus the opportunity to purchase yourself some sweet, sweet merch of the the WPRB variety.
We’re also doing something new this year that is unquestionably awesome. Stop by our table for a chance to record a WPRB station ID. Especially if you have an adorable child or generally just a voice for radio.
Come find us! We like you! We want to communiverse!
Slash apparently there will be five stages which is a lot of stages so it’s definitely worth it.
Our WPRB DJs have been all over the world this term, but they’re still in touch. Dr. Dre-vika has this to say:
It’s me, Dr. Dre-vika!
I’ve been in Kenya all semester studying abroad, so I have been a bit out the WPRB-loop for a while, especially with limited electricity/internet. However, I thought I would serve as a sort of international correspondent and let you all know how things go on the equator!
Not Kenya but good try.
First of all, it is so weird to not receive 21231231092 albums in the mail every week as music director. Where do I find all the hip new music the kids are listening to these days?
I actually ended up subscribing to the WPRB charts, just to make sure an exciting album didn’t come out without my knowledge.
But really, when there is no internet and no contact with anyone except for the 11 other students + the professor at your campsite, you turn to whatever music you’ve got on your computer and hope for the best.
There are two options, one of which is free and one of which is a hundred dollars. Also, it’s “Junque” themed.
Free option (does not involve wine): The Pinot/Picasso event is going to be an art raffle adventure, so the art is on preview exhibit at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts April 17-24
Many dollars option (does involve wine): There will be an art exhibition, but also worldly wine tasting, local beer and, once you’ve consumed sufficient quantities of said wine/beer, dancing. Friday, April 26th from 6:30-10:30 pm at the Forrestal Center, One Research Way, Princeton.
This tour has the music stripped down to the bare essentials: No backing band, just Russell’s soaring voice & Ron with his beloved keyboard, “Ronald”, and his disarming and just a little disturbing wit. Stare long enough into his signature German-accountant spectacles, and he’ll have you eating frozen pizzas and wearing Dacron ties for the remainder of your puny existence. All Hail The Brothers Mael!
Tune in this week to WPRB for chances to win tickets to see Sparks live, including today on ::Doubleplusgood:: from 7-9 PM with Lizbot !
This Saturday, from 10pm to 3am, WPRB is heading over to QXTs Nightclub in Newark to check out Vince Clark, former member of Depeche Mode.
We want to see you there, and WPRB’s DJ TM5 / Pete DeFillipo will be giving out swag and showing videos!
To get appropriately pumped, check out this clip of Clark talking about early drum sampling in the 2009 BBC production Synth Britannia, a documentary series about ‘post-punk musicians’ who brought synth into popular culture.
If the members of Zongo Junction had to describe themselves in four words, they would choose dance, drums, Zongo Junction, psychedelic, hyphen, dub, and party.
The eleven man Brooklyn-based afrobeat band, which preformed in 75 different venues all over the country last year, came to play an amazing set at the Terrace F. Club this Saturday and let us conduct a highly enjoyable (thanks to them) and wildly unprofessional (thanks to me) interview.
Coverage of sequester stories and sequester jokes is shifting to wacky European antics and the annual springtime North Korean crisis, but the problems posed by the government policy are still relevant.
WPRB’s own John Weingart wrote a fabulous piece for the NJ Spolight on the sequester about a month ago. Using his radio show as an analogy, he explained why the sequester is so frustratingly, mind-boggling problematic… and designed to be that way.
