SHOW OF THE WEEK: The tOwnies

Every Tuesday 8 to 9pm, Janna Powell & Saige McNeal come and play their favorite tunes, discuss Oberlin town and college, and have an all around good time. We like to hear them chat about life and music, SO show of the week status granted!

1. How would you describe yourselves?
Janna: Well, I’m pretty short and I’m attempting to dread my hair. Just the typical Obie I suppose. But yeah, other than that I just like to think I’m just a pretty chill girl.
Saige: Uh, lets just say…It’s best to meet me in person. I like for people to form their own opinions (yea I know…super lame)

2. How would you describe the show?
Janna: I think our show is often just a time where despite what type of day we had, we like to chill, have fun, and enjoy the hour we have to share music with others over the airwaves. Saige and I both have a love for all types of music…so you never really know what to expect. Just listen. You won’t be disappointed. :)
Saige: I believe that “The tOwies” represents who we are day to day and our take on our surroundings. AND! the music we play is a reflection of two very different people from different places coming together in one very special place thinking…”damn! We are musically compatible!”

3. What inspires you to do your show?
Janna: I started working with Meeko Israel on his show last fall when I moved to Oberlin. He immediately was family and became a mentor to me. After spending so much time in the station with him just sharing our love for music and watching how he expresses not only himself, but the common struggles within the human race, I began getting really interested. Eventually he started pushing me to get a show, and I went with it. He’s been my big radio inspiration thus far.
Saige: MUSIC, Oberlin, Janna, and the future.

4. What are you listening to RIGHT NOW?
Janna: Aminals by Baths. Soooooo good for the ears!
Saige: CNN..haha

5. What is your favorite show on WOBC?
Janna: The World Famous Meeko Show (Sundays 3-5, tune in!)
Saige: Electronic Fantasy Seduction because I like Electrónica…I like Fantasy…and I like Seduction…

6. Favorite foods?
Janna: Pizza. But from back in Philly…not here.
Saige: Korean FOOD!

7. Favorite holidays?
Janna: Christmas! Not because of the presents…but snow, friends, bon fires, apple pie, train rides! Gah, I love it.
Saige: Other peoples’ birthdays!

8. Final thoughts?
Janna: This song is SO good!
Saige: Listen to the tOwies on WOBC on Tuesdays from 8-9pm. The show is filled with good music, random conversations, and is hosted by the none other than Saige and Janna.
