Tune in to KWUR 90.3 and take part in a beloved KWUR tradition. Better yet, call in and share a favorite KWUR memory! Even better than that, call 314-935-5952 and make a donation to the station so we can keep freeform radio alive for Washington University and the surrounding community.

STACK SESSIONS – THEODORE

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

Last night Justin Kinkel-Schuster – lead-singer and songwriter for local band Theodore – stopped in, played some songs and talked some talk. We discussed his band’s recent label-signing, his recent RFT awards for “best male vocalist” and “best country (alternative),” George Hamilton IV’s “Abilene”, “high-voiced New Folk heroes,” rock operas, and probably some other things. I’ll be broadcasting the interview live on the airwaves (@90.3 fm/kwur.com) at 7 or 8pm (central time, natch), but if you wanna check out the songs right now, give a listen below. Perhaps most importantly, Theodore will be performing tonight at Off Broadway with Samantha Crain and it promises to be a blockbuster humdinger bonanza mindblower so, you know, keep that in mind. Hopefully we’ll get the full band in the studio some time soon.

Theodore – Death’s Head

Theodore – I Won’t Be a Stranger

STACK SESSIONS: EXERCISE

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Local experimentalists Exercise recently stopped by the station to drop off some tracks from their new album, “Grandma’s House.” They actually played five songs, but everything was sequenced together so beautifully that we decided to keep them intact as two separate tracks (with the interview in between). Check out pictures from the in-studio and the intricately spaced-out tunes below.

Tail Feather + Panama
