If you haven't heard already, this week is KWUR's Hustle Week–and tonight from 8pm to 8am we're bringing you some very special programming for the Annual All Night Broadcast. 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.

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.
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.
SO – just confirmed two more Stack Sessions – Dead Confederate (the lower picture) on Wednesday and Sonic Youth (the upper picture) on Friday. Those, on top of everything else going on this week, should keep us fairly busy. Here’s the rundown in full, lest we forget:
Saturday: These United States (interview)
Sunday (2:30PM): Gentleman Auction House (in-studio)
Monday (6:30PM): Exercise (in-studio)
Wednesday (6PM): Dead Confederate (in-studio)
Friday: Sonic Youth (interview)
You can listen in online at www.kwur.com and on the radio at 90.3 FM.
Zydeco legend CJ Chenier stopped by to play a few songs and chat with Zak before his show at Pop’s a few weeks ago. He brought along his ballin’ accordion and a washboard player, and jammed out a few tunes on air. Check the whole interview here, and download/listen to the songs below.
Louisiana Two-Step (live)
You Don’t Need To Cry (live)
Got My Eyes On You (live)
oh ps we’re in the process of switching over to a new blog client, hopefully something that will take megaupload out of the equation and let us host audio in-house. stay tuned for details as they unfold!
