Jonny Alright LIVE in the Studio, Sunday 8/25 at 4:00 p.m.

 That's right, everyone's favorite Triad-based channeler of the Stooges & T Rex will be stopping by the station to Sing and Play His Songs. 4:00 p.m. & don't miss it!

 

Catch Midnight Plus One LIVE on Sunday 7/28

The dynamite Chapel Hill band Midnight Plus One, who just released their self-titled debut album, will be joining us for a live in-studio set this Sunday afternoon, July 28, at 4:00 p.m. Tune in over-the-air at good ol' 88.7 FM, or online right here at wxdu.org!

 

Top 99 North Carolina releases of 2012

OK, we did it! Here's the final list:

 

Internet Stream Maintenance

 We're doing some work on the streaming server, so the streams may come and go today (Friday 12/14). Bear with us!

 

Hiss Golden Messenger LIVE on WXDU: Sunday 11/11 at 4pm

 Tune in at 4pm Sunday November 11 to hear MC Taylor aka Hiss Golden Messenger performing live. HGM will release their new/old LP, "Lord I Love the Rain," which collects earlier semi/unreleased works, on Friday the 16th at the Pinhook.

 

Gross Ghost LIVE! Sunday 11/4 at 4pm

 Tune in Sunday 11/4 (um, today!) at 4pm EST (that's right, be sure to fall back today) to hear the fuzzed-out unstoppable pop stylings of Gross Ghost live on-air.

 

Dex Romweber Duo LIVE Sunday 7/17 at 4pm

 Dexter Romweber is a true North Carolina icon, and along with his sister Sara, he's currently doing some of the best work of his long career. They have a brand-new album due out on Bloodshot, and a show at Cat's Cradle on Friday 7/22. But first they'll be stopping by WXDU to play live on-air at 4pm this Sunday, 7/17. We can't wait!

 

Web Stream Upgrades!

OK, well, it probably goes without saying that web streaming on Mac OSX is, um, complicated. 

  • The good news: the MP3 stream is back up, and full-digital end-to-end, from the studio to your computer
  • The bad news: the OGG stream is currently down & is likely to stay that way for at least a while.

I'd kinda like to hear from anyone who was still using the OGG stream, in fact, before I waste time putting it back online. Email computing@wxdu.org if you're desperate for it. And by "desperate" I mean "lacking hardware or software to play MP3," not "philosophically opposed to listening to MP3 streams." C'mon, it's 2011.

 

Action Packed Sunday



Sunday 6/12 is packed with local music, including Last Year's Men playing live on-air at 4pm, followed by Pink Flag talking to Savannah about their brand-new King of Scene EP at 6pm. Don't miss 'em!
