WXDU's Hopscotch Review Tonight (9/14) from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Tune in tonight as we recap last weekend's Hopscotch Music Festival 2014!

At 6:00, Ben Cox sits down with Daniel Lupton, owner of Sorry State Records and member of Raleigh's No Love, and Mike Wallace of North Carolina-native Drag Sounds. They'll talk about the bands' Hopscotch experiences and how they think the festival interacts with and impacts the Triangle's music scene. Ben will also play music from Hopscotch artists and talk about his own experience at the festival.

Next at 7:00, Zach Lechner has a follow-up to his daily festival report blog posts. Hopscotch offers a unique experience to almost everyone who attends, and Zach will share his experience--along of those of other festivalgoers--and review the performances of just some of the 160 bands that played this year's festival.


WXDU News, Sports, and Information Sunday 9/7 from 6:00-8:00

First at 6:00 tonight: Thursday is the 13th anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001. Three years ago, on the 10th anniversary, WNYC’s Radio Rookies, a Peabody Award-winning youth journalism program, produced a documentary focused on the experiences of young people who were children on that day. In “Radio Rookies - Our 9/11: Growing Up in The Aftermath,” we hear from six of those children, 10 years later, on how September 11 shaped their lives.


WXDU News is at 7:00. Tonight’s stories include:
