End Of The Century presents:

Ween: Chocolate & Cheese
𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟰 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟰 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟰 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟰 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟰 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟰 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟰 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟰 – 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟰
LJ will be hosting End of the Century!

LJ has reached 𝟭𝟵𝟵𝟰 in his slow-moving survey of the years covered by this show.

What was going on in ’94?

Of course he’ll touch upon the debut albums from Low and Portishead! And, of course he’ll touch upon peak albums from Hole, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Notorious B.I.G., Nine Inch Nails and Jeff Buckley. But also, ever wonder what Moe Tucker, the drummer from the The Velvet Underground, was doing in 1994?

Cause and Effect presents:

Blacklight - Stalley & Apollo Brown
Lj will be covering the influences and collaborations of Detroit-based DJ/Producer Apollo Brown! He’ll spin a track or two from his new album with rapper Stalley and choice selections from his many collaborations. He’ll also be spinning a lot of great 90’s hip hop and 70’s R&B that influenced Apollo Brown!
