KWUR Mobile Apps, Part II: now with iPhone goodness

Monday, April 18th, 2011

Hey y'all, looks like Mr. Jobs approved our app, and it's now available in iTunes.  It is identical to the Android app in layout and function, but runs on your fancy iPhone instead.  21st century, it's nice to meet you. 

Check out the iPhone app here.

And if you still haven't gotten it, the Android one here.

Here are some screenshots:

 

All glory to the Hypnotoad Ben Oberkfell for making these apps!

This Saturday, 4/16/11, at around 11:30 AM, I'll be conducting a live interview with Lukas Ligeti, avant-garde composer and percussionist and, yes, the son of Gyorgy Ligeti.  This is in anticipation of Ligeti traveling to St. Louis for a solo performance on Friday, 4/29/11, under the auspices of the HEARding Cats artists' collective.  The details are at this link :

Time: Friday, 4/29/11, 7 PM

There'll be discussion of his recent album Pattern Time, as well as his music and artistic influences.  If you want to sample some of his work, have a look & listen:

Bad News Bears

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011


This past Saturday, some of KWUR's most athletic DJs faced KSLU in the annual Kickball match at Tower Grove Park.

We put up a good fight and were even winning for a little bit. Only a few DJs kicked over the ball, to the relief of everyone.

Sadly, KWUR lost. But! We were still the team with all the Mike's Hard Lemonade.

Click on any of the photos to see more classic shots from Saturday's game.

Introducing KWUR Mobile Apps

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

UPDATE: The app is now live in the Android store!  Get it here: https://market.android.com/details?id=gencomp.kwur.mobile

 

Good news everyone!  Starting tonight, you, dear listener, can download the KWUR App for Android phones for FREE.  It's relatively basic: it allows you to listen in to our high quality online stream and displays song information (artist, album, song) as well as album artwork.  You can also see what's been played recently.

Here are some screenshots to tide you over, and we'll be back with a link to the app itself when it goes live.  Also, we'll have a free version available for the iPhone as soon as Mr. Jobs deems us worthy.

Credit to Mr. Ben Oberkfell for putting all of this together!
