DJ Mothball’s July Set: Wash

Molly DuBois, a.k.a. WKNC Program Director and DJ Mothball, is one of my favorite DJs and people around. Last night, I was lucky enough to join her in the studio for her weekly set. This week’s show, titled “Wash”, featured tracks from Stereolab, Cocteau Twins and Primal Scream. The set started at 8 p.m. and ran for about an hour with 12 songs and two air breaks. Molly set the in-studio atmosphere by changing the lights from blue to purple and giving me time to look at the various whiteboards, bulletin boards, and images that covered the walls. Doodles, notes, quotes and band posters surrounded us throughout the night. There’s nothing quite as simultaneously exciting and calming as being inside a WKNC studio during a set, especially if you get to go with DJ Mothball. Thanks again, Molly, for letting me join you.
