Video of The Day: Nada Surf – Rushing

The official video for Nada Surf‘s “Rushing” from their album ‘You Know Who You Are‘. Available on Barsuk Records (US/Canada) and City Slang (Europe) since March 2016. Just a perfect indie PowerPop gem!

Storms affect The Dayton Community

Several serious storms and a highly rated (F3) Tornado damaged several northern Dayton neighborhoods and communities. Local hospitals are reporting that they are treating injuries but exact figures are not available yet. Widespread damage has been reported in parts of Montgomery, Greene and Mercer counties. There are widespread outages and the city of Dayton is under a water boil advisory.

While the WUDR studios and the University of Dayton were spared, unfortunately some of our northern neighbors are not doing as well. Please do what you can to help them and the community through appropriate and verified rescue and charitable organizations. As information becomes available, we will update this announcement.

Best to all, -Dr. J

What is your song of the Summer?

P1020764Is it too late to choose a song of the summer? Are there any strong contenders? Thoughts? It does seem that every year there is an effort to say one song perfectly captures the feeling of the season? Is it wrong to always want to the song of the summer to be Alice Cooper’s ‘Schools Out’? What is your song for summer 2019? Or have you not picked one yet?
