WBAR Staff's Spring Semester Faves
May 3, 2014, 2:17 p.m.
2014 isn't even halfway over, but there's already been too many great musical releases to count, from Future to Future Islands, Sun Kil Moon to Sun Araw, Neil Young to Young Thug-- you get the point. Anyways, we've sifted through the ever-increasing pile of records (and files) and come up with our top twelve favorites of the year so far, which are posted below in alphabetical order. It's been a heck of a spring semester, and we want to thank all our listeners and DJs for keeping WBAR the hottest thing on the internet-airwaves! We'll see/hear y'all in September! Copeland: Because I'm Worth It (Self-released) Freddie Gibbs & Madlib: Pinata (Madlib Invazion) Future: Honest (A1/Epic) Linda Perhacs: The Soul of All Natural Things (Asthmatic Kitty) Mac Demarco: Salad Days (Captured Tracks) Pure X: Angel (Fat Possum) Ricky Eat Acid: Three Love Songs (Orchid Tapes) Ryley Walker: All Kinds of You (Tompkins Square) Sun Araw: Belomancie (Drag City) Sun Kil Moon: Benji (Caldo Verde) Thou & The Body: Released From Love (Vinyl Rites) Todd Terje: It's Album Time! (Olsen)
The Marshall Green Travel Hour
April 18, 2014, 6:25 p.m.
Our current featured show of the week is The Marshall Green Travel Hour on at 2 am on Saturdays! NJ: Where are y'all from? Henry Green & Max Marshall: Henry is from Cambridge, Massachusetts and Max is from Texas NJ: What is your genre? HG: It started as a rap show, but Max has pulled us more toward country music and we also play R&B. NJ: How did you come up with the title for your show? HG & MM: We were enjoying complementary passionfruit margaritas from our generous sponsors over at the Heights Bar and Grill, when Henry realized that his complementary nachos had transformed into the image of the Virgin Mary. We then immediately decided to call our show the Marshall Green Travel Hour. This semester, we changed the name to The Marshall Green Travel Hour: The Road Goes on Forever as a tribute to Robert Earl Keen’s classic “The Road Goes On Forever and the Party Never Ends”. NJ: What is it like having a co-dj? HG & MM: It’s great for those lonely nights. NJ: Name a track you have played recently that you love: MM: Tanya Tucker- Soul Song (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tM3jzDWNQy4) 1972 track by a 12-year-old country music prodigy from West Texas. So lush. HG: Cody Chesnutt - Boylife In America (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHs7y44iwVs) I found this song trolling through his album The Headphone Masterpiece album when I had a cold. I liked the title so I checked it out; it has a warmth to it but it’s weird enough to keep you interested. NJ: Who are you most excited for for WBARBQ? HG & MM: It all looks good, but we’re most excited about KA.

We will also be at the NSOP activities fair on Sunday August 31st all day so you can hang with & meet us staff. Broadcasting this semester will start in late September. More on that to come. With love.

Our current featured show of the week is Cornbred with DJs Johnna Bratt and Anna Hippee! We asked them some questions so you could all get to know them! On Sundays 12 am-2 am! Nicole-Juliet: How long have you been doing wbar? Anna Hippee: Jo did a show last spring, Twin Citizen, featuring music from Minnesota. This is my first semester. NJ: Where are you ladies from? AH: I grew up in Iowa City, and Jo grew up in a town of 1100 people called Bird Island smack dab in the center of Minnesota. NJ: How did you get show title? AH & JB: We came up with the idea of doing a midwestern show at the beginning of the semester and spent a few hours sitting in Brownie's Cafe coming up with a huge list of potential names. Anna (Mrs. Hippee) is a master at wordplay and came up with so many good ideas: Tractor Factor, Flannel Channel, You didn't want to go to college here... Cornbred won out--it's a pun that has led to some calls into the studio for hot orders of cornbread (and Jo recently found out it is a double play on corn-fed also). NJ: What genre is your show? AH: We try to play everything! But we consistently end up playing rap and anything with saxophone in it. Also Bon Iver. Did we mention that we play Bon Iver? NJ: What is it like having a co-dj? AH & JB: Comparable to having a siamese twin but in a non-physical, musical sense. NJ: Favorite song you played on your last show? AH & JB: We spent way too long debating this so we're giving a few answers: IA- Troubleshoot by Dana T MN- Daydreaming by Dark Dark Dark Bonus U Got Me Fucked Up by Chance the Rapper (Chicago)
