New Student Shows of the Week!

November 14th, 2013

This year’s new programming includes some electronic shows that can quite possibly take you to a new dimension. This isn’t the type of electronic that you’d hear at a German Techno Club (however there is a mug night next Thursday for Vassar students featuring German techno, DJ’ed by our own GoldmanSnacks and A-Lexus). Instead, these two shows send out mellow vibes and trance-like radio waves. Spooky.

 

The Moon Room with DJ Moon Cup and DJ Buzzlightqueer

Wednesdays at 2 pm

Take a midday break and chill out with some tasteful soundscapes. Electroacoustic combines with natural elements to create an immersive atmosphere that may just drown you in relaxation. Be sure to wear a life jacket.

 

Field Recordings of the Mind with DJ Rad Banana

Saturdays at 1 am 

End your Friday nights (okay, technically Saturday morning…) right with Rad Banana. Minimal electronic featuring artists like Burial and Four Tet who will gently rock you to sleep after the busy week you just had. Yes, you. You are special. You deserve this.

 

Be sure to tune in!

~new student shows of the week~

November 7th, 2013

As you can see by the number of additions to the program guide, this year we have a crazy amount of new student shows. In order to welcome these shows and introduce them to the community, I’ll be featuring few of these awesome programs every week.

 

Introducing the Monday late-night block! So late that it’s technically Tuesday morning.

Thatcher in the Lye w/ DJ Murray Superior

Tuesdays 1-2 am 

***A lively late-night taste of post-punk’s coming of age. Wow, thanks DJ Murray Superior!!! He also keeps ya up to date on current up-and-coming post-punk. Served ice cold***

 

Raspberry Rush w/ DJ luketoast

Tuesdays 2-3 am

***Do yourself a favor and stay up to hear an assortment of 90′s emo n punk. DJ luketoast keeps your ears happy with artists like The Get Up Kids and I Hate Myself. Mmmm, toasty***

 

Make your Monday late-late nights (ehhh, maybe Tuesday early-early mornings) count! Tune in y’all!

-Kathryn, Program Director ’13-14

Dem-Now technical difficulties

November 7th, 2013

Hi everyone,

we are aware that Democracy Now did not stream today. We apologize for the inconvenience. There are technical difficulties on their online streaming port’s end, and we have emailed them for clarification as to the problem. We’ll post an update as soon as we have one. The problem has been erratic recently, so it is certainly possible that the program will play without any problems tomorrow morning.

Thanks,

WVKR

Solange Concert

November 6th, 2013

A Review in Verse

It was dope dope dope,
Hitting my fave musical tropes.
She played a Dirty Projectors song
Kept me thinkin’ all night long
Solange Knowles, only if we could elope.

Bad poetry, aside. The concert was awesome. Solange had great energy and some pretty sweet dance moves. Much love to VICE and CBS for bringing her. We here at WVKR approve.
