Okay radio-land folks, there is this little thing called a Princeton “thesis” and it has been driving me crazy-busy. I’m locked up painting all day and trying to make sure I know what “music” is. So I resolve to finish my thesis and be a good blogger for the rest of the year. No reviews today, but a whole bunch of radical links, legal downloads, and music news that will blow your mind (after the jump).
What’s up, all you peeps out there in WPRB-land?!
We have some good news coming from the offices on the 19th floor of the WPRB Communications Complex. For the first time in five years, WPRB will host ALL-VINYL WEEK. Beginning May 4 and running until May 11, Our CD’s take a backseat to those illustrious polyvinyl chloride disks, and your favorite jocks will spin tunes you know and love and a few you haven’t heard in a while.
There is bound to be special programming that week. Stay tuned to ‘PRB, wprb.com, and this blog for more information about All-Vinyl Week.
Now news from the 20th-floor studios . . .
The baseball broadcast scheduled for this coming Tuesday, April 8, will not be broadcast as originally scheduled. Our apologies for this inconvenience.
WPRB’s resident groundhog, Will Sullivan, has announced Spring’s arrival. For the first time this year, he is wearing something other than a suit to the office.
Until next time, stay classy, and don’t hurt yourselves.
