PROGRAMMING NOTE:

First of all, if you're new here, WELCOME! We hope you stick around, and we hope you post.

There are several ways to catch the show:

You can catch it straight from the KUCI 88.9FM website:

https://kuci.org/wp/listen/

You can listen via mobile or desktop on TuneIn:

https://tunein.com/radio/KUCI-889-FM-s35860/

You can listen via mobile or desktop on Streema:

https://streema.com/radios/KUCI_88.9FM

(note: the app for Streema is "Simple Radio")

You can listen via mobile or desktop on Radio Garden:

http://radio.garden/listen/kuci/A58GSAOF

Lastly, we stream live on iTunes. Just open iTunes and look for live radio streaming, and search for us, KUCI 88.9FM.

A couple notes:

We unfortunately cannot podcast or post show recordings, so if you miss the broadcast, you miss it - it's an FCC thing (seriously).

But we post a text playlist after the show at the bottom of the thread, and we also post a YouTube playlist after the show here:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWLmRhgwtylQbd_QUxmgFeA/playlists

And if you hear a song that you just can't wait until the end of the show (or the end of the block) to find out what it was, the playlist is also live-Tweeted here:

https://twitter.com/socalnewwaver (no account or sign in needed to view)

Lastly, and most importantly, this is a non-politics, non-bad news thread. We're here for the music, we hope you are too!

You going to Cruel World then?

Gee, I wonder if there might be discussion of a certain festival happening in LA during this thread?

I'm probably going to buy a ticket. This is year is going to kill me financially.
Also, is it actually at the Rose Bowl?

check with NeoMoxie before dropping cash on cruel world. i heard from her (and a few others) that there were lots of problems with the festival and it wasn't worth the (literal) price of admission. biggest gripes being very short sets and crappy sound.

It's staged at the golf course next to the Rose Bowl.

Looks like it will be good this year - less than half the bands, so hopefully longer set times.

Yeah, the promoters got a TON of complaints from the audience AND some of the artists from the lack of quality sound engineers. One stage in particular - pretty sure that sound guy was not asked back...

Hello everybody!
FWIW, sounds like everyone knows the info, but for those lurkers who are confused:
Cruel World Festival
 
2023-01-24 12:59:18 PM  
I grew up about 6 miles from the Ville. Gonna have to look up the show.

Hello everybody!
If someone could send the sun here, I'd appreciate. It went missing some time ago and nobody here knows if it's going to be back.

That might be fun, as I don't think any of my LA friends actually live near Pasadena, and it would be nice to actually meet someone from here.

You moved to Seattle, and didn't let me know?

Yeah, it crossed my mind that I could have been teleported there. Haven't seen any ocean though. Has it also gone somewhere?

Well, you can thumbs up or down on the invite after Death Guild's Anni Party...

I saw last week that it had sold out & that's a largish venue for them these days

Oh and the Mish's second show got moved to the glass house

buenas tardiness, denizens!

I shan't be going to Cruel World, despite my excitement at the very idea, as it's €1000.00 I don't have. As a consolation, I re-bought L&R Earth,Sun,Moon and played the hell out of it.

Glad you managed to secure the tix. Enjoy, just enjoy the music. They are not exactly the old Sisters but still I had a great time at their gig last year.

If The Essence weren't trying to sound exactly like The Cure, then they really failed

Pista: If The Essence weren't trying to sound exactly like The Cure, then they really failed


They obviously had to work hard on the vocal but everything else is a total failure in not-to-sound-like-The-Cure category indeed :)
And yet, I really like to listen to it.
