Welcome to the WTJU Rock Marathon 2002.

This week is for you, to thank you for listening to the station and supporting it every year; it's for the DJs at WTJU, to thank them for volunteering their time and energy so enthusiastically; but ultimately this week is for the station itself--as always, we will be taking pledges and requests throughout the week, and we hope you'll call in. Without the support of the community, WTJU can't hope to maintain its high-quality, free-form programming.

We offer up for your perusal a creative mix of shows devoted to old favorites, new artists, and interesting themes, and even a mini-series on cities of indie rock. There will be two nights of music at Tokyo Rose to kick things off on Wednesday, February 20th and Thursday, February 21st, and Ostinato will play an in-studio show on the last day of the marathon, Friday, March 1st.

We'd also like to take this opportunity to thank those without whom putting together this marathon would not have been possible; the bands: Ostinato, Bats and Mice, The Rah Bras, Audio Explorations, True Love Always, Skywave, Grandbanks?and Sarah White, Steve Ingram and Gate Pratt for contributing their talent and support?.to Danny Shea for designing this year's t-shirt?to Michelle and Josh for making sure we had the goods to give, to Andy Miller and Jessica Wenger for coming through week after week, to Brandy Savarese for getting us started with this rock director thing, and most of all to Uncle Chuck for having the answers before we'd even thought of the questions.

Tune in, drop by, and have fun!
Ginny Barrett and Sarah Hinger, rock directors

WTJU Virginia News


5:05-7pm

Fugazi

Tim Ballo

Why travel all the way to your nearest NFL game just to hear a few measly bars of "Waiting Room" when you can enjoy the unerring craftsmanship of D.C.'s finest without the distraction of emotional attachment to the whereabouts of a swollen bean? Featuring cuts from all eight of Fugazi's albums (or seven if you're a purist, and I know you are) as well as live material.


7-9pm

Alternative Latin 101

Bentley

Take this entry-level two-hour course to find out why Latin is certainly no dead language. Featuring Los Amigos Invisibles, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Los Enanitos Verdes, Cafe Tacuba, King Chango, and more.


9-11pm

Caught by the Fuzz

Tim Ballo

Ahh the rich creamy tone of fuzz, the tastefully textured stucco spackled over the chicken-wire foundation of 60's garage. But what if the desire to ruin the clear, respectable tones of properly amplified guitar had never come to fruition? Perhaps the whole singer-songwriter crisis could have been averted, but then again, an alternate universe without that barely audible "click" in the chorus of "Satisfaction" when Keith's guitar shifts into overdrive might just be a little too safe.


11pm-1am

The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall

Andy Miller

Has Mark E. Smith lost his mind or have you finally found yours? Organic, rough-edged pop riffs repeated for minutes over a din of noise and dance and rockabilly and punk, all with Smith's slurred ranting fueling the -----. From 1979 to the present, influencing too many, annoying too many, condemning too many, The Fall deserves your ear, if only to show you what's the big deal.


SAT 2/23


1-3am

Straight Up

Wendy Hyatt

the political dissidents--those who aren't afraid to mention things that make you go hmmmm...public enemy to minor threat...bikini kill to yves montand...dead prez to page 99...a big thank you to the kids who rip the gag off.

6-9am

The Swamp Dogg, PhD, DDT, VD, BS, RFD

Dave "Prof Bebop" Rogers

Composer, performer, social conscience, and joker Swamp Dogg is a model of unflagging energy and creativity. He has written and performed a body of music from soul and blues to country and calypso and he laid the foundation for "Soul-blues," today's most vibrant and enduring genre of soul music. Join Prof. Bebop for 3 hours of music and comments from the Dogg himself.


9am-12pm

Willy Fest 2002

No Nelson here... just a celebration of the 29-year musical journey of singer/songwriter Willy Deville and his band, Mink Deville.

With your hosts David Eisenman, Matt Combs, and Michael Stock


12-2pm

2-4pm

Pub Rock Power Play

You know 'em and love 'em: Dave Edmunds, Nick Lowe, Graham Parker and Elvis Costello. They shared labels, songs, production, and probably a whole lot of other stuff we don't want to know about. Join Mike Stock & Matt Combs for Pub Rock Power Play. Don't be left in the penalty box.


4-5pm

Television - Marqee Moon

Jeff Fallis

From the toilets at CBGB's and the general seediness of the Lower East Side circa 1975 crawled the band Television, spearheaded by the blistering twin guitar pyrotechnics of Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd. Only three albums, but they're all good. The most elegant of the American punk groups, Television laid it down like the Venus de Milo in leather and drove their Cadillac around underneath that marquee moon. Let the guitars make it all just a little bit better.


5-7pm

Eau de Cologne

K

Better late than never: an overview of the thriving minimal-techno scene from Cologne (Koln) Germany. Sounds and the spaces between them... booty music from the safety of your armchair. Artists include Thomas Brinkmann, Jorg Burger, Mike Ink, and more.

MON 2/25


1-3am

Groin Churn

Bridge Cox

In the early 1900's, New York gang warfare was prevalent?and so thus many kidnappings. A common torture element was to hold a man down and take a hammer to one of his testicles... yeah...ouch! Well, actually this has nothing to do with music, nor does this have to do with metal?it just sounds painful and full of malice. Past and present of your favorite metal-kings...that's a MAN OF WAR reference numbskull.

Focusing on atmospheric bands like Slowdive, Ride, and Lush along with the heavier edge of Adorable, Catherine Wheel, and My Bloody Valentine; plus an attempt to trace the roots of the genre back towards the Anti-pop of the Jesus and Mary Chain's early discography using a 1986 Washington Post article to guide our trip.

1-3am

X

Michelle Sasscer

Erupting out of LaLa Land with a damaging ferocity and heartbreaking distopia, X was a defining band of early eighties punk. With disconcerting harmonic duets, slashing rockabilly riffs and unflinchingly honest lyrics, X wrote the soundtrack to youthful despair that remains all too relevant today ("The World's a Mess its In My Kiss"). Tune in with Michelle...it's not a punk history lesson, it's a testament.


3-6am

The Real TJ

Brendan Flaherty

Tom Jenkinson a.k.a. Squarepusher: "I see myself as doing the most fake, contrived sort of music ever really. I think that's what I appear to be into." Go spastic with Brendan.

Dominic DeVito

Instrumental outfits are everywhere today, but without Chicago's Tortoise paving the way, legions of fusion-loving dorks would be lost.

12-2pm

The Beef on Rai w/ Amel Chabbi

Bruce Penner

From the west of Algeria comes rai, the music of outcasts. Many Muslim artists are taking up this style, but is it a good idea?

7-9pm

Lost Pop of the New Wave Era

Danny Rowe

If you think current pop is surprisingly artificial, you weren't paying much attention during the 1980's. This show will focus on the producers and artists whose artistic visions (and careers) were all but eradicated by the rise of grunge in the early 90's. Highlights include unfamiliar classics by Samantha Fox and Belinda Carlisle, unfamiliar artists like Kylie Minogue and the Thompson Twins, and if it's a hit you recognize, I guarantee a 12" club mix you probably haven't heard. Special emphasis on production trio Stock, Aitken, Waterman!!

2-4pm

The Velvet Underground - "Electricity Comes from Other Planets"

Jeff Fallis

Andy Warhol managed them, Edie Sedgwick danced with them, Lou Reed played fuzzed-out electric guitar for them, John Cale played fuzzed-out electric viola for them, Nico warbled perversely for them, everybody who bought one of their records formed a band, and you and every hip kid ever worth a damn declared their undying love for them at some point or another. The Velvet Underground might be the greatest band of all time, so join us for two hours of their best and most bizarre.
