Black in the City Hoes (B.I.T.C.H.) 2; TO FREEDOM!!!!!
This week’s featured show is Black in the City Hoes (B.I.T.C.H.) 2; TO FREEDOM!!!!!, which is on Wednesdays from 10pm-12am! Where are you from? Maat: Chicago Denise: Newark, New Jersey How long have you been a WBAR DJ? Maat: Two semesters. Denise: Since Spring 2018! How did you come up with the title? Denise: It’s actually a pretty funny story. Maat and I were working for Bacchanal’s Battle of the Bands (come out this year!!!) when we were filling out our application. When we were thinking of a title, I knew I wanted it to be an acronym that spells “BITCH” but we couldn’t think of anything after “black”. We asked our friend Nephy and she just yelled “BLACK IN THE CITY HOE” and ran. Her fucking MINDDDDD. Maat: The “TO FREEDOM!!!!!” part attached to the name this semester is inspired by Nicki’s monologue from Queen radio! What’s your process for coming up with a playlist? Maat: First, we pick a theme for the show and then make a playlist of songs by black women or gender non comforting folk that have songs surrounding that theme. Denise: I like to come up with themes (grind time, in my feelings, halloween, auntie shit, etc.) and go from there. I love making playlists because it’s like a set time where I specifically look for new black women/GNC artists that I never heard of. This semester especially, I’ve been trying to look for artists that have less than ~100,000 listens on Spotify and that’s also really exposed me to a lot of great music. What are some songs you played recently that you love? Maat: Paradise by MNEK. MNEK is so slept on! And Rain by SWV and Bling Bling by junglepussy Denise: Sweetest Thing by Orion Sun, Lick My Choppa by Rocky Badd, and Queen of this Shit by Quay Dash. We haven’t played it yet but “Cuddy” by Coi Leray SLAPS and she’s from Jersey so I can’t wait to play it next week. Favorite WBAR memory? Maat: I can’t think of a favorite memory because every show we have is a great time. For two hours every Wednesday, I get to talk all things black women and pop culture with my best friend(s) while playing music by black women and gender nonconforming folk from all genres. B.I.T.C.H. makes me feel whole, it’s my safe place. Denise: I think like the first time someone outside of my friend group told me they like our show. I truly felt like that bitch.

The Cryptozoology Radio Hour
This week’s featured show is The Cryptozoology Radio Hour, which is on Mondays from 2-4pm! Where are you from? Izzi: Delaware Mo: Western Pennsylvania How long have you been a WBAR DJ? Izzi: I had my first show with Klea sophomore year but she was doing a lot of the work so this is my first real show. Mo: This is also my first real show but I’ve been a guest on many a show in my day. How did you come up with the title? Mo: The title comes from my finsta which is “the_mo_radio_hour” which is also a reference to the Moth Radio Hour on NPR. I had this show in London when I studied abroad last semester but I was really sad and missed a lot of shows so I thought I would reprise it back at home on WBAR! What’s your process for coming up with a playlist? Mo: Mostly we just add songs that remind us of the cryptid of the week. This week the cryptid is God so there were a lot of songs that fit the theme including “God is a Woman” and “Pussy is God” Izzi: Oh uh I didn’t realize you were supposed to make a playlist until a couple weeks ago. So there were two whole semesters where I really didn’t know what was happening. Now I’m having a good time making playlists during my classes. What are some songs you played recently that you love? Mo: Izzi introduced me to Saint Seneca and now I’m a BIG fan. As we’re answering these questions we’re playing The Spiritual by Jukebox the Ghost which is a bop that I forgot all about. Izzi: Breakthrough by The Dirty Projectors. I think we played that? Dearly Departed by Shakey Graves. Oh and Girlcrush covered by Harry Styles Favorite WBAR memory? Izzi: I was looking through my photo booth photos and there are so many photos of me, Mo, Klea, Julia Lubey, and Dimitri and we had a whole photoshoot in the studio and the photos are so cute and sweet. Mo: My favorite WBAR memory is last year at Winter Formal because my friends looked really nice and everyone had a great time. I loved the NSOP candles. They were a great touch.
