So, I’m sitting in the DJ Lounge at WKNC, looking at the Tetris machine, our two cornhole boards and a poster for the film 2012 with a post-it of ‘Hillary Clinton’ and I am just reminded how misanthropic I am. Anyways, here’s the upcoming giveaways for We.Know.North.Carolina. (continue reading…)
September 3 was the Friday before Hopscotch Music Festival, and I was joined by Grayson Currin, music editor of the Independent Weekly who was also Hopscotch Curator. Hopscotch is the biggest music event to ever happen in Raleigh, so I dedicated the entire three hours of the show to chatting with Grayson about everything associated with the festival. Caitlin Cary (Small Ponds, Tres Chicas), Reid Johnson (Schooner), and Brian Corum (Lonnie Walker) also came on the show, and Reid and Brian played some brand new tunes (which you can download here). What ended up happening was three hours of a fascinating, entertaining conversation with insight into Hopscotch. Listen below:

A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege to talk to Schooner‘s Reid Johnson about all things Schooner and local music. Schooner recently played WKNC’s concert series Fridays on the Lawn with Max Indian and was generous enough to stop by and answer questions as well as play a few songs while he was in-studio. If you were unable to hear the interview, it’s your lucky day! Below is the interview in its entirety as well as the songs which Reid played. Enjoy!
Schooner band members Maria Albani and Reid Johnson have shared their top 10 track lists this week.
5. Clapping Yer Hands (ooh la Yeah)- Waumiss
6. She Cracked – The Modern Lovers
