#Art of Sampling
Monday, from noon to 2:00 pm

Follow me as I lead you on the smooth ride through the history of music in The Art of Sampling -- a perfect blend featuring obscure 30s Jazz loops, bombastic James Blake tracks, and of course some Biggie too.

Hosted by Dylan Ford
Damage Style, named after the ineffable track by Discordance Axis, is a radio program about grindcore and all the dust it scatters. Convention traces the genre's origin back to Napalm Death's Scum, which delimits approximately 25 years' worth of music. Damage Style contests that narrative, detecting "scum," or "grind," in works ranging from Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl" to Prokofiev's Symphony No. 4. to the very first ex-utero holler. Damage Style is as much about auxiliary, incidental (viz. inventive) grind as it is about pure and simple grindcore. Artists earning the mic via indirection include Mr. Bungle, Arab on Radar, The Flying Luttenbachers, Swans, Ruins, Boredoms, et al. Their music, broadcast on Damage Style, will prove that Grindcore can be recovered from the chasms of its scene.

But the rhythmic soul of the music will set your mind free and make you want to unwind, dim the lights, and stare at a lava lamp.

Pop music often has a stigma attached to it that is seen as "vapid" or "unsophisticated." However, there is another genre of pop music out there that is those things, and more! It's called Twee Pop. With influences from 60's girl groups, 80's Brit pop and Scottish post punk, twee is humble in its attempt to make music. The lyrics are often about innocent crushes and falling in love mixed with simple drum beats, jangly guitars, and pretty voices.

#Mississippi Juke Joint
Saturday, from 10:00 am to noon
Hosted by Margaret Shuttleworth
Mississippi Juke Joint features the music known as delta blues, country blues, and dirty blues from the 20s, 30s, and 40s, as well as field hollers and prison songs preserved by the Library of Congress. Blues music is one of America’s greatest cultural contributions to the world. It incorporates the deep stain of history - from the remnants of slavery and rural poverty, through the Great Depression, to the Great Mississippi Flood, and the migration north for a better economic life - with powerful lyrics and exceptional guitar techniques. D Many of these early musicians were the primary influences of the bands of the first and second British invasions– the Animals, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, and Led Zeppelin – not to mention the host of American bands that later caught the fever.

We'll be pumping up that bass, and smashing you with some serious bangers every week on the UK Riddim.
#Speaking in Tongues
Saturday, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Hosted by Claire Murphy-Beach
American music has found success across the globe, even among listeners who don't speak a word of English. Unfortunately, foreign music has a difficult time making its way back to the states. Even the American indie scene, with its devotion to the underground, rarely recognizes the artists and labels producing music in other languages. Speaking in Tongues is a small effort to fill the gap, bringing you music from artists who stick to their linguistic roots. Most shows will feature 21st century tracks sung in Spanish or French, but listeners will also hear sprinklings of Japanese, German, Portuguese, and more.

Many traditions are also often interconnected, and exploring those connections leads to greater understanding of one's own culture.
