On The Way Up | Episode 24

Sep 5, 2017

Get set for some modern day honky-tonk and roots rock from Eilen Jewell, JD McPherson and newcomer Haley Thompson-King, plus a new double disc from Luna, who fortunately decided to get back together, plus we’ll go dark with a couple picks from our nighttime sound -- a truly deep concept record from Public Service Broadcasting paired up with a classic track from Joy Division for our Segue Of The Week. DJ For A Day features WNCW midday host and Rhythm Theorem host Scotty Robertson, as we share stories of just how wrong things can go with live guests on the radio. They’re the kind of stories that for us are funny now but were mostly painful when they began.
