enema by blacklight
Our current featured show is enema by blacklight, another well-loved WBAR institution airing 8-10pm Sundays! DJ Dylan Kario talked with us about humble beginnings, finding new music, and WBAR-B-Q: WBAR: Where are you from? Dylan Kario: from underneath a pulverized tin of sundried tomatoes crusting in the heat of the blazing LA sun, discarded at the intersection of the 101 and the 405, i, a displaced duende, emerged WBAR: How long have you been a WBAR DJ? DK: i started DJing with my buddy @Sam Stevens in spring of our freshman year. our show was called White Sauce Hot Sauce and we never ate halal in the studio. i took a break for a semester and rejoined the next spring as a solo enema. WBAR: What is the inspiration behind your show name and what inspired the transition from enema by candlelight to enema by blacklight? DK: The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran WBAR: How do you go about putting together your weekly playlists? DK: when i can, i like to make my shows entirely from new music that i get that week. i usually start with an artist or track i liked from my last show, or something a friend or facebook showed me. then i look up related artists and releases on what.cd/blogs/reviews, youtube some tracks, download albums i think i'll like, pick the Good Track, then continue the process. it's good to do this hopped up at Joe without a charger for maximum urgency. what.cd forums are some really f'd rabbit holes. every show for me is a test in making a cohesive playlist from brand new material, and it's really exciting to end up with 10-15 new albums a week. later, after i weed out stuff i don't end up liking as much, i get to really dig into more and more amazing music that i have strong & lasting associations with from making my shows. WBAR: What’s your favorite thing you’ve played on your show recently? DK: toss up between two songs that made me use the Repeat Song feature for the first time since possibly middle school: YELLOW DIAMOND SHODDY, the last track off Sinjihn's latest release, and Try 2 Break (Remix), the last track off RP Boo's latest release / a collaboration with Rashad / a good thing bc they replaced RP's misogynist hook with catchier sample chopping. WBAR: Who are you most excited to see at WBAR-B-Q? DK: can't wait for Dubbel Dutch to soundtrack the sunset!!! Wanna see even more of enema by blacklight? Check this out!

~~Cool Aunt$~~
Our newest featured show is ~~Cool Aunt$~~ airing 4am-6am Wednesdays! Below, DJs Blaire McClure and Briana Bursten let us know what they're all about: WBAR: Where are you guys from? Blaire: I’m from Dallas, Texas, most often associated with its mediocre football team, JFK’s assassination (RIP), and conservative politics. Fun fact: I used to go to the same church as George Bush. Briana: I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida, which is known as the strip club capital of the United States and also doubles as the general area in which James Franco’s masterful performance in Spring Breakers was filmed!!! WBAR: How long have you been WBAR DJs? B&B: Since February 2015! WBAR: What’s it like having a co-DJ? Blaire: Pros: Briana wakes me up whenever I oversleep- which is embarrassingly quite often. Also, we have very similar tastes in music which enables us to curate a cohesive/dope/hype playlist each week. Con: She eggs me on to do really embarrassing/potentially offensive things in my sleep-deprived, delirious stupor. (Read below) Briana: It’s nice breaking and entering a residence (aka Blaire’s dorm) and not getting punished for it. Also, nothing really beats having a partner who reads excerpts from Trainspotting in a Scottish accent at 4am… that’s #RARE. Her music taste is a plus I guess. WBAR: How would you describe your show? Blaire: The line at International on a Thursday night meets Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift at the VMA's meets doing the Cha Cha Slide at your painfully awkward middle school dance. This is the vibe Breezus and I unwittingly create every Wednesday 4-6 AM. Briana: Ina Garten’s alter-ego, Rarefoot Contessa, meets Pharrell when he actually was a baby and justifiably had a baby face. Throw in the contradictory fusion of self-loathing/immense pride felt only when you drunkenly show up at Koronet’s and watch yourself in the mirror as you eat a chunk of pizza the size of your face, and you get Cool Aunt$. WBAR: How do you go about putting your playlists together? B & B: Every Sunday night when the clock strikes midnight, we dress in all pink and ascend to the eighteenth floor of Sulz Tower via secret stairway . We turn all the lights off, and set flame to a several candles arranged in a triangular pattern. (#Illuminati) We then pin a photo of our savior, Yeezus Christ, to the wall. Then we wait for song choices to divinely come to us, and we write them down on a scroll with a feathered quill. (But- if we are feeling lazy, we create a google doc instead.) WBAR: What’s your favorite thing you’ve played recently? Blaire: Wonderwall by Oasis!!!! (You probably haven’t heard of it though.) Second favorite is probably Doe-Active by A$AP Briana: Definitely the audio message that my dad sent me professing his love for uber when he updated his iPhone for the first time (can you say millennial??) Also- anything by Bishop Nehru or Fatima WBAR: What’s your favorite thing about WBAR? B & B: Fawning over attractive male Djs from afar and calling into their shows anonymously and asking if they’re single (lol cover blown WOOPS!!!!!) Plus the fact that we are given a public platform to ~express our tastes in music~ and grace the interweb with our $WAG. (Adding to our narcissistic tendencies is a lowkey plus.) But our actual favorite thing about WBAR was that we are given many opportunities to see cool artists. For instance, Wendigo, a beastly yet celestial creature/artist performed before our very eyes in Altschul Atrium.
