Hear ‘em While They’re Hot: Apocalyptic Dreamscapes

March 12th, 2015

Good afternoon, listeners!

We are proud to present another update in our ongoing public awareness campaign, Hear ‘em While They’re Hot, where, each week, we sit down with the DJs who have made our station tick/tock over the years and hear what they have to say before they depart our airwaves at the end of the spring. This week we sat down with Alexandra Bowditch ’15 and Taylor Pratt ’15 (DJ Beastiality and DJ Narcolexi) to talk about their last semester on the air with the dreamy, ambient beauty of Apocalyptic Dreamscapes.

WVKR: Beastiali-Tay. Narco-Lexy. It’s a pleasure having you with us today. The listeners want to know, how did it all begin for you two?

Alex (speaking for the two): It was a dark & stormy night… 5 seconds too late, they arrived.

WVKR: Wow. Well, let’s get to the next big question. Any favorite foods?

Both: Half baked B&J ice cream, also Phish Food…..also fish food.

WVKR: Any favorite music atm?

Both: Tila Tequila, star 67 (DRAKE!DRAKE!DRAKE!), Mazzy Star & Lovefool by the Cardigans, always.

WVKR: If you two had a catchphrase, what would it be?

Both: “Hey it is time for a PSA featuring –insert– (Beastiali-Tay & Narcolexy)”

WVKR: Is there anything you want to say to the listeners?

Both: I really wish I knew how to answer your phone calls but I love you.

WVKR: They love you too. Thanks for sitting down with us!

 

Be sure to tune in every Thursday night / Friday morning at the stroke of midnight for the stuff dreams (and dreampop) are made of on Apocalyptic Dreamscapes!
