Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative Request Show

ImageWe are playing music by request from listeners to the show both near and far! So take some time to call 937-229-2774 or email or tweet us a request at drjwudr! We already have several requests lined up.  Let us know what you would like to hear! Your pals, – Dr. J and Mrs. Dr J

Up to Up-date!  A listener in Cincinnati just asked “why do a request show?”  Our answer:  We know what folks want to hear… not because of market research bs, or because that’s what they program in LA, or because that is what is “charting”, or some truly misguided sense of our own importance — we know because we asked and listeners told us what they wanted to hear.  And that is what we are playing tomorrow!  Because that is how radio is supposed to work! — Dr. J

We have not forgotten you: A new Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative

This Tuesday we will be playing three hours of independent, local, and Dayton music for you! Our theme this week is remembrance. We will be exploring how music can create powerful memories, build connections between strangers, and why a song can all too easily transport you back to a moment in time.

We will be chatting with our friends Jeff Rudolf of Sam at Eleven and Tom Gilliam of The Rebel Set about the Cancer Benefit both bands played a few weeks back!

Expect music from Blank Tapes, Wild Nothing, The Rotaries, Apple Tree, Camera Obscura, Underground Lovers, The Men, Baby Bee, The Lost Patrol, Guided by Voices, Luke Frazier, Foals, Still Corners, and many more. Dr. J will also be playing demo of a classic song from The Replacements.

We are working on our next music book discussion — what book about music have you read recently that you would recommend for our next music book conversation? We will be putting up a poll on which book we should discuss. This is important — you, the listener and music lover can decide what book about bands, music, a music scene we should discuss! So, let us know and we will see you on Tuesday on WUDR!Image
