End Of The Century presents:

Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟯 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟯 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟯 -𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟯 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟯 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟯 -𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟯 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟯 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟯
LJ is hosting End of the Century!
He has reached 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟯 in his slow-moving survey of the years covered by this show.
What was going on in ’93? Of course he’ll touch upon the solo debut of Björk. And, of course I’ll touch upon peak albums from Cypress Hill, The Smashing Pumpkins, Type O Negative, Mazzy Star and Slowdive(band). But also, how about a detour through some acid jazz?

End Of The Century presents:

I had so much fun with the format last time, I’m doing a Rock Blocks show again!
Ever wonder what Dolly Parton was doing from 1975 to 1999? Me too!

The last rock block show had blocks of Phil Collins, Sonic Youth, Gary Numan, Vince Clarke, etc.
This time around, I’ve got blocks from Eddy Grant, Siouxsie, Belle & Sebastian, Geoff Barrow, etc.

Monday Breakfast Blend presents:

I wasn’t a dedicated fan of The Cranberries, but if I were to create the soundtrack of my high school and college years, several of their songs would be in it. The news that we lost Dolores O’Riordan came after my show last week, so I couldn’t respond right away in the way DJs are wont to do — a tribute show of some sort. This gave me a week to process, and let others do some of that for me. I decided to play one of my favorite covers of a Cranberries song. You’ll hear it near the end of the show.

Monday Breakfast Blend presents:

With the exception of Christmas (which is pretty easy), I’m not really one for making seasonally themed shows. I hope you are using today’s MLK holiday to do something good in the world. As for me, I’ll be doing some good by playing a bunch of tunes you should have heard by now, but probably haven’t.
