On Wednesday, the 28th of October from 1-2pm, we will have the honor of interviewing John McDowell, the chair of the folklore department at the University of Indiana Bloomington and expert ethnomusicologist. We will discuss contemporary and classic corridos from Mexico. Professor McDowell, with his extensive knowledge of the corrido, will certainly have interesting insights to provide.
Below are a few examples of corridos that we play on our show, “Surcando El Terreno: En la Sierra y la Cuidad.”

Summer programming is over! The small-but-mighty summer staff are here to share what we’ll be listening to while we’re waitin for fall @ WOBC.
Max, summer engineer: Jamie XX
Off of Jamie XX’s new album In Colour, this song combines an addictive beat, verses by Young Thug, hooks by Popcaan, and holds it all together with extensive sampling from The Persuasions’ 1971 “Good Times” to create one of the best songs of the summer.
Nandita, summer station manager: Donnie Trumpet & the Social Experiment
An ode to Chance the Rapper’s grandma, also feat. a gospel choir and the lovely Jamila Woods. The whole album is good vibes and I’m addicted.
the coverband showcase is an age-old WOBC tradition and a chance for YOU and YOUR PALS to get up on stage and transform into your favorite band !
you don’t have to be affiliated with WOBC or Oberlin College to apply! we’d love to include everyone who wants to perform. if we get more applications than expected we will try to prioritize people who haven’t performed at a lot of Oberlin events & bands that a lot of the audience will know//want to sing along to!
email applications to email@example.com and include:
the people in your band and the instruments they’ll be playing
the band/musician you would like to cover
your band name (historically these have been spin offs of the original name, i.e. a Police cover band called Oberlin P.D., a No Doubt coverband called Mrs. No Doubtfire)
your set list (3-4 songs you’ll be covering)
apps are due Friday July 17th and you’ll hear back by the 19th
