Stuff We're Thinking About

Brickside Music Festival Tomorrow!

WXDU's annual music festival in collaboration with Duke Coffeehouse is happening tomorrow (4/7) at the Coffeehouse on Duke's East Campus! Join us from 2 PM to 2 AM for twelve hours of music, food, and vendors, featuring Xiu Xiu, Laurel Halo, Bill Orcutt, and more. Tickets for Brickside can still be purchased at the Duke Box Office or online.


Friday 4/6: 8-9am - Filmmakers Anna Moot-Levin and Laura Green Discuss "The Providers" Documentary with Dr. Leslie Hayes

DJ Robby will host filmmakers Anna Moot-Levin and Laura Green Discuss "The Providers" Documentary with Dr. Leslie Hayes, Friday 4/6 from 8-9am.

The documentary is about rural health care in northern New Mexico. It'll be a bit of a change-up from Robby's normal format, but should be really interesting. The documentary will be shown at the Full Frame Festival this weekend. Tune in at 8am Eastern!



Tashi Dorji/Nathan Bowles Duo this Friday 10/20 at the Pinhook!

Tashi Dorji and Nathan Bowles will be playing a benefit show for Durham for All this Friday at the Pinhook. The show will start early with doors at 7:00 so come start your Friday night off right!

Listen on Your Phone!

No, we don't have a custom WXDU iPhone app. We've found something BETTER: an app that will let you listen to any streaming radio station: TuneIn Radio, powered by TuneIn.com. It allows you to record, pause & rewind streams, view cover art & artist info. And it's available for iPhoneAndroid, Palm and Blackberry!
