Jon Langford and Company; Skull Orchard Visit WNKU

Jun 8, 2012

Gary Keegan spent some time with Jon Langford and the members of Skull Orchard on the first of June. The painter and musician, along his gang were able to play a few tunes for us including 1234ever, before their big show at MOTR.  Langford began behind the drum kit for The Mekons, but was out in front with a guitar by the time the band recorded its masterpiece, Fear and Whiskey, often credited as the first alternative country album. He discussed more about that unique term, alternative country, with WNKU's Gary Keegan.

Irish Lovin' from The Elders

Jun 8, 2012

Many laughs were shared when The Elders paid WNKU's John Patrick, a visit last week. The group shared several stories about their annual returns to front-man Ian Byrne's home in Wicklow, Ireland to perform. Byrne and his American counterparts make up the group, The Elders, who greatly enjoy the challenge of describing their unique sound. The Elders have achieved a very unique sound, and an equally difficult task  is describing exactly what it is that they play.

Local indie-rock outfit, Majestic Man, are set to play the next Studio 89 on April 23rd.

WNKU welcomes local band, Pete Dressman and Soul Unified Nation to Studio 89 tonight at 7pm.

Tune in to listen live!
