Epiphanies


The Epiphanies column has been running in the U.K. music magazine The Wire for nearly 20 years. Each month a different writer, musician and/or academic describes a life-changing encounter with music. Last year, The Wire released a collection of 52 Epiphanies, ranging from Geeta Dayal's discovery of extremely repetitious music as a bridge between herself and her classical Indian music enthusiast parents to Matthew Collin's remembrance of Belgrade independent radio station B92 as a beacon of resistance in 1990s Serbia. 

TONIGHT, from 7-10 PM ET, Bodega Pop Live on WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio spins a few dozen life-changing tracks discovered over the last 20 years in bodegas and mom-and-pop run media stores from Flushing, Queens, and Oakland, California, to the Medina of Marrakesh and the banlieues of Paris.

FUCK YOU, DONALD TRUMP


What does protest music sound like in 2016? 

In the weeks leading up to the election, and in the days that have followed, hundreds of American, Asian, bi, black, Canadian, European, female, gay, Jewish, Latin, lesbian, male, Muslim, queer, straight, trans and white artists have written, produced, and disseminated anti-ignorance, anti-racist, anti-misogynist, anti-homophobic, anti-Trump tracks ranging from punk, folk and metal, to hip-hop, glitch, and sound collage.

Join us tonight from 7-10 PM ET for a three-hour sonic middle finger to the world's most dangerous jackass.
