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.
