Join Dominick of Electric Candle and Dave of Dave's Record Collection on Saturday, December 2, for a six hour celebration of what would have been Jimi Hendrix's 64th birthday. Tune in to hear Jimi's musicianship at its finest, from the popular to the rare and obscure, as well as interviews and masterful covers by a number of artists influenced by Hendrix's work.
It's sure to be a sonic "experience" as only Jimi himself can dish out, so tune to 88.1FM or listen online beginning at 3:00 PM! "Turn on, tune in, and let us groove."
Negashi Armada, of ATL’s classy hip-hop collective Supreeme, will be calling Ja and Adam, around 5pm on Sunday, for an on-air interview during this week’s “Don’t Be a Menace (while sippin on crunk juice in college park).” Hear from the man who wants to “screw Rosario Dawson before his time is through.” Tune into the whole show to hear some awesome bump-n-grind.
Larry Walker, aka DiZZy DiZaSta, will be performing LIVE on Tin Pan Alley this Wednesday evening (11/29) from 8 to 10 pm in my first-ever rap show. Come down to the studios to see the man in action or tune in to WMUC 88.1 FM.
