funkmaster-flex
if you could have anyone alive or dead hear your show, who would it be?
If I could have anyone listen to this show, it would be Funk Master Flex, then he could further my radio career and give me late nights on HOT 97, also Michelle Obama, because I think she would like it alot.  ( I love WOBC though, I wish I could have a show on wobc for the rest of my life.  100% serious, doing my radio show is without a doubt the best hour of my week every week, and I try to make it the same way for my listeners)

is your show more of a dog or cat person?
My show is definitely more of a dog person, atomic dog that is.  or a hot dog, fresh n juicy.
41. JAMES BROWN SERIES
what’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?
 the best concert I’ve ever been to?  that’s really tough.  I saw the P-Funk allstars several years ago at the BB King club and I seriously lost my shit at that show.  I saw James Brown a year before he died, and I feel really lucky to have seen that.  As far as oberlin shows go, Freddie Gibbs was really fun, first person I’ve seen to spark a ***** in the sco and he got the whole crowd to shout “**** police” over and over which I found pretty entertaining.  There’s too many good shows to count, and I know as soon as I send this interview I’m gunna remember one thats way better than all these.
A-Tribe-Called-Quest-The-Low-End-Theory
if you could only hear one album for the rest of your life what would it be?
 One album for the rest of my life? another tough question but I’ve already thought about this so its easy.  ”The Low End Theory” by A Tribe Called Quest.  I think Tribe is as close as you can get to perfect music.  this album fits every mood, I can party to it, chill to it, eat to it, put it on first thing in the morning to get up and goin, or put it on at night before I go to bed, I even lost my virginity to this album.  hands down, The Low End Theory for the rest of my life.  done and done.

Vinyl Finds from the WOBC Vault

Every week, vinyl workgroup dives into the deepest depths of the labyrinthine world of WOBC’s vinyl vault. The collection, stretching back to the 60s, is of a rare kind – it doesn’t just have the hits and the classics, it has the albums singles companies wanted to be hits, the double albums they wanted to be classics, the strange compilations, the complete musical failures that quickly went into obscurity, the undiscovered gems that never saw much light. Here are some particular interesting ones we picked out – and DJs, if you want to play these on your show, you can find them on the “best of vinyl” shelf in the public affairs room.

“Daydreamers” by Nelories, off of Daisy (1994, Sugarfrost) | Japanese alt-indie-ACCORDION-pop duo from the 90s. Weren’t expecting that part, were you.

“Elephant Stone (7″ Single Version)” by the Stone Roses (1988, Silvertone) | An acid indie rock jam.

“Holotelani” by Nelcy Sedibe off of The Indestructible Beat of Soweto (1985, Shanachie Records) | An important compilation from the 80s of a wide variety of South African artists – never disappoints!

Soul to Soul (1971, Atlantic) | Soundtrack from a film of a 1971 concert in Ghana of American soul, R&B, and rock musicians – Wilson Pickett, Ike & Tina Turner, Santana, Roberta Flack, The Staples Singers and more.

Who is Hunx + His Punx?

HXS2

 

Hunx + His Punx & Shannon + The Clams

The ‘Sco

11/26/13

10 PM

$5 OC ID/ $15 W.O

Hunx + His Punx is a rush of warped 60′s girl-group harmonies, explicit + tasty lyrics directed towards the glammest, hippest qts + a major disregard for anyone without a certain careless attitude. Seth Bogert + Shannon Shaw (Shannon and the Clams) created the group, and together, they create some weirdly nostalgic, party-ready anthems. Words that can be associated with HahP include: teenage meltdown, tight spandex booty shorts, seven minutes in heaven, mischief night, TP-ing your math teacher’s house, eating a bunch of frosted cupcakes, wearing glitter eyeshadow, stealing your parents’s holiday rum, etc. Here is an excerpt from an interview with Bogert:

REAXI read an article where you made out with a bunch of people in the front row of the audience and you got strep-throat.
HUNX: Oh my god I did.

You heard it here first: you could maybe make out with the hotties in Hunx + His Punx if you come to the show tomorrow night at the ‘Sco!

SHOW OF THE WEEK: 六年代 (ROKUJUNENDAI)

Rachel’s show is very good. READ ONchococone
what/when is your show?
六年代(rokujunendai) on Mondays @6 PM.
The show name means “the sixties” in Japanese. I play a lot of garage and psych music from East Asia, as well as from Southeast and South Asia. I have a heart for ballads though, so it can be very sentimental at times. Sometimes i speak really bad Japanese on the show. I often get scared that my dad is listening.
OfMontreal1
what is the best live show you’ve ever seen?
When I was 15 I went to an Of Montreal concert in New York City. They really know how to entertain – there was a white horse on stage, and Kevin Barnes sat on it while wearing tiny metallic gold underwear.
what inspires your radio program?
Shout out to my roots. I was living in Japan last semester and got involved in the Tokyo electronic scene. I came back to the states and thought, “What was the stuff my dad listened to while growing up?” I like listening to old Japanese pop songs, a lot of it can be really bad though, so I started checking out other music coming from Asia during that time period. Indonesia killed it with garage music. Korea has some wonderful more balladic music that features really strong women vocals.
136KeyBoys
if your radio show was a flavor of ice cream, what would the flavor be?
I think it would be dark chocolate, but that’s just because I like it.
c11f5_1229187
what’s the best mix cd u ever got?
From this person who was crushing hard on me. The person almost exclusively listened to punk, and chose the best, most sentimental songs. Kitchen’s floor and Little Joy were both on the mix! I was in love…except I really wasn’t.
what’s your fav radio show?
Really hard, but I enjoy Bruxxels Radio. One time they were having a give away to the 4th caller. I called in, and I am pretty sure I was not the 4th caller, but the show was going to end soon. They sent me a mix cd and some creepy blue smurf candies. Smurfs are the worst.

The Kings Collective Radio Show, Sun 9-10 am

print
Print block by Naomi Garber

The Kings Collective Free Form Radio Show airs Sunday mornings from 9:00am-10:00am on WOBC, Oberlin College and Community Radio.

This show seeks to serve as a resource and nexus of information for local community members who are affected by incarceration, both personally or through family and friends. Shows vary weekly, with interviews from community members who are currently organizing against mass incarceration and involved in re-entry work in North East, Ohio. This show is a platform for incarcerated individuals in the surrounding area to submit their writings to be read over the air.

Each week our playlists are created in collaboration with people who are currently incarcerated. Calls from family and friends who are reaching out to individuals incarcerated within the broadcast width are welcome and encouraged to call and have their messages of love played during the show.

Prisons are powerful because they silence and disappear the people that they lock away. Finding ways to hear those voices is an act of resistance and love.

By creating new and expressive ways to communicate, little by little, we break down those walls through the air waves. While communities may be separated by bars, we hope that we can use the radio to connect those on the inside with those of us who are on the outside.

For more information, contact Kaela Sanborn-Hum at ksanborn@oberlin.edu or Jamie Gerber at jgerber@oberlin.edu
