Introduction

So it's Rock Marathon time. That special time of year when the birds sing a certain way, the landscape is transformed ever so slightly (just trust us on this one), and the airwaves mitigate the bleak midwinter with the sounds of rock and/or roll--24 hours a day. Why this blessed event? So we, the Rock Department of WTJU, can offer our humble thanks to you, our listeners. All our DJs open their personal vaults, dig out the finest music you know and love, and to borrow a phrase from Henry Rollins, kick out the jams. Of course, we can't do this on our own. Well, we could, but unless you want to come over to our places once a week, you won't get to hear two hours devoted to DC punk legends Autoclave, a battle for the soul of rock and roll between WTJU's own commander-in-chief, Uncle Chuck, and Britannia's Secret Rock Weapon, Robin Tomlin, devastating beats from Chicago's WaxTrax! to New York's Public Enemy, and just about anything that ever annoyed someone's parents. So, we ask you to tune in and make a pledge that allows us to remain fiercely independent, bafflingly free-form, and always totally rockin'.

Ally, Ginny, Jeff, Sarah, & Tyler
rock directors

We'd like to give quick thanks to our T-shirt designer, Danny Shea, to Karam Hwang who secured the swag, and to Boyracer, who will rock the WTJU studios on Wednesday. Finally, of course, respect is due to you. Thanks for listening and support WTJU Rock over the years. We hope you'll tune in, rock out, and help us to corrupt future generations.

12pm
Eric Angevine
Afghan Whigs

This band from Ohio has rocked steady for years, with the impassioned vocals of Greg Dulli backed by a soul-minded rock and roll band. Hear favorites from classic albums like Black Love, 1965, Gentlemen, and others. Two hours of broken hearts and lyrical retribution hosted by Eric Angevine.

2pm
Don Harrison
Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except for Me and the Monkees

Timothy Leary maintained that the often-reviled Monkees functioned as moles for the 60's counterculture, and everyone from the Sex Pistols to Run DMC has paid tribute to the great songs the "band" left in their teen idol wake. Now, with this show, Dobolina Don and the Wowsville crew will make daydream believers out of all who doubt the cultural importance, and occasional musical brilliance, of Mike, Micky, Davy and Peter. Tune in and find out why the world has been bettered by Liquid Paper, music videos and country rock, and hear two hours of the Pre-Fab Four in all their archival glory.

Jeff Fallis
White Light/White Heat -- The Velvet Underground

Almost none of the bands we play regularly on WTJU would exist if not for the Velvet Underground. What other band can boast Lou Reed, an icy Nordic chanteuse, and an adrogynous female drummer who played a mean tom-tom? What other band was responsible for both "Pale Blue Eyes" and "Sister Ray"? What other band had a peelable banana designed by Andy Warhol on its first cover? The V.U. is some kind of rock'n'roll Rosetta Stone. Join Jeff for two hours' of their brightest, darkest, and most bizarre. For the right price, we might play the 27-minute version of "Sister Ray" recorded through Lou Reed's guitar amp like we did last year....

7pm
Jeffery Lindholm
Mercedes Garage '66

9pm
Matt Reynolds
Non-Commercial Commercial Music

3am
Andy Miller
New New York vs No New York

Do they have anything in common? The Lower East Side catch-all of noisy, performance-centered rock from the avant-garde, now over 20 years old... And the current hype centered more in Brooklyn, some of it inspired by the same post-punk bug and some of it totally fashionable (some of it both). Do you claim novelty or mere NowNess? On one side we have DNA, the Swans, Lydia Lunch, James Chance, Suicide, ESG, Liquid Liquid... on the other we have the Liars, the Rapture, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Interpol, Black Dice, the Ex Models...and dare I mention the S(trokes) word?

6am

2pm

Professor Bebop
The Rolling Stones

They drew their name from a Muddy Waters' classic, embellished classic Chuck Berry guitar riffs, and created lyrics with enough attitude to convince the world that the nasty side of rock & roll music had renewed its quest for the souls of its young. They became the world's greatest rock and roll band.

7pm
Wendy Korwin

11pm
Tim Ballo
How the Northwest Was Won

In the mid-sixties, the Sonics, the Wailers, and a host of other groups created a sound unique to the Pacific Northwest. Equal parts voice-shredding screams, overdiven guitars, and annihilated drums, this primitive assault formed the primordial soup from which punk rock was to emerge.

Sunday, February 23rd

1am
Danny Rowe
Electroclash

After Bowie and Eno did Low, punk culture briefly gave the synthesizer a warm home. Gary Numan, The Future, and Suicide, had dark electro visions before Bela Lugosi was even born. 25 years later and new artists are embracing the punk possibilities of computers while mixing in their generational bias towards dance and vulgarity. This party's packed with Fischerspooner, The Faint, Ladytron, and Chicks on Speed--Peaches and Miss Kittin promise to be on good behavior throughout the broadcast.
