Noshing & Moshing

Our first featured show of the semester is Noshing & Moshing, a veritable WBAR institution which airs Thursdays at noon! Below, DJ Julia Selinger answers some questions about herself, her show, and WBAR: WBAR: Where are you from? Julia Selinger: Mamaroneck, NY WBAR: How long have you been a WBAR DJ? JS: Since Fall '11, my first semester freshman year. WBAR: What’s the inspiration behind your show name? JS: Noshing & Moshing is the name of a Freaks and Geeks episode, the one where James Franco becomes a punk and fashions a mohawk using raw eggs. It was also the name of my sister's show when she was a WBAR DJ. It's all about the family brand. WBAR: How do you approach your weekly playlists? Do your shows have themes? JS: I find that the time of day I make my shows will affect how they end up sounding. If I make a show late at night, they tend to be a little sleepier or more ambient. If it's the middle of the day, there might be more pop-punk or soul. I usually don't stick to a theme, but I try and sequence songs in a way that is sort of relational, whether it is similar instrumentation or a thematic link. Then again, freeform radio is a beautiful thing. There's nothing like slappin' on a Weather Report album and ~chillin~ WBAR: What’s something you played on your show recently that you really love? JS: Last week I played "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye" by Bettye Swann. Mmmm. WBAR: What’s your favorite WBAR memory? JS: WBAR-B-Q is always one of my favorite days of the year, but 2013 was one for the books. Chris Forsyth, Speedy Ortiz, Waxahatchee, Scott and Charlene's Wedding, Krill…hot dog!
