2/15/13 - WE HAVE A FULL HOUSE AND ARE NO LONGER TAKING REGISTRATIONS.
Kelly Richey has been described as “Stevie Ray Vaughan trapped in a woman’s body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out.” That's probably enough to make you want to register to see her band kick off the Spring 2013 edition of Studio 89, but we'll tell you a little more about what to expect.
WNKU's long-running live radio show featuring established and emerging musicians from around the world performing in front of a live studio audience, returns to the airwaves on Monday, February 18th. The show will air live Monday nights at 7:00 pm until the season finale on May 6th.
In addition to making regular investments in music, news gathering, customer service, and staff among other things, we at WNKU are committed to investing in our overall quality of sound - both over the air and online.
And here they are - The Top 89 CD's of 2012 as voted on by our listeners! Let the listomania debates begin! Feel free to comment below, but please keep it friendly. Oh, and if you didn't vote, you're not allowed to complain!
Thanks to everyone who did vote, however. An even bigger thanks to everyone for listening, and an extra super huge thanks especially to everyone who made a contribution to WNKU in 2012. Because of you, we can look forward to the Top 89 of 2013.
Trixie Whitley will release her eagerly anticipated debut LP, Fourth Corner, in the U.S. on January 29 via Strong Blood Records. Whitley, the daughter of the late acclaimed guitarist and singer/songwriter Chris Whitley, most recently recorded and toured with Black Dub, the band formed by guitarist/producer Daniel Lanois, bassist Daryl Johnson and drummer Brian Blade.
Voting is now closed for the Top 89 CD's of 2012. All of the ballots are currently being transported by armored vehicle to an undisclosed underground location where they will be audited, tallied, and audited again by a team of highly-trained security professionals that include former members of the CIA, NSA, FBI, ATF, SEC, ELO, BTO, DMB, CSN, ALO, CCR, and REM.
