Growing up in her aunt's record shop, Clair Delune always loved the blues. Her show, "Blues Moon: with Clair Delune," has been playing rare blues and roots for 27 years. In that time, she's shepherded countless students to graduation, researched and recovered rare records and has a few furry co-hosts to help her along the way.
The problem was, Debbie didn’t want to be a skank.
David Wood (DJ D) is a media arts major specializing in video production and editing with the ultimate goal of working in Los Angeles or New York as a producer. In the meantime, he's had a long-running radio show here with WUSC, “Dark Entries: Goth Radio.” The show features largely Gothic Rock, but also branches out into various dark genres and doom metal.

After numerous jam sessions, Perrin Skinner, Kristin Harris
and Kelley Douglas decided they should put a name on it, and thus the Prairie
Willows were born.
What comes to mind when you think of modern South Korean music — look-alike girl groups? Boys sporting eyeliner?
Taylor Swift is the most scrutinized, celebrated and studied figure in pop culture. Kanye West and Beyoncé may give her a run for her money, but I digress.
I pulled into a driveway and I saw four punks sitting on a dimly lit porch.
Tori McQuinn is a second-year civil engineering student with a passion for K-pop, the South Korean music trend that has been sweeping across international borders. Her WUSC-FM radio show features a mix of pop, ballad, hip-hop, R&B and electronica, all falling within the realm of K-pop. Catch DJ Taro’s show, “Korean Seoul,” Saturdays from 6 to 8 p.m.
The lines on the screen move like heartbeats, jumping with every rise of emotion in sound and dipping with the absence of noise between drumbeats and guitar riffs. Different-colored rows move simultaneously, each with its own rhythm, measuring out melody in a readable pattern.
Chance the rapper has been hitting up college campuses this fall with Young and Sick and Sweater Beats. I was fortunate to get to see them play at UNCC but was not expecting such a spectacular show.
It takes a lot of guts to add theatrics to your set when you’re the opening act. Thus, when the four members of Those Lavender Whales don their signature seaweed-green Davy Jones beards, it’s near impossible not to gain immediate respect for them, despite the fact that they haven’t even picked up their instruments. And when they do start playing, they might seem to merely be an odd little crew from Columbia with false beards jamming through folk jingles. But behind the faux facial hair, transcendent electric guitar waves, relaxing acoustic strums, happy-go-lucky drum tempos and pleasantly bright lyrics is a group that even in the darkest of times epitomizes love, support and purpose, redefining what it means to be a “family band.”
The smart and quirky rock/folk/electronic band alt-J (∆) has released their second full-length album for the masses to stream, fittingly titled “This is All Yours.” Many artists are doomed to a “sophomore slump” – especially since this group had a grueling, relentless tour (back-to-back US festivals such as Bonnaroo, Cochella, Lollapalooza, Sasquatch, and South by Southwest) as well as guitarist/bassist Gwil Sainsbury departure for “personal reasons.”
All hail the queen! Queen Cher, to be exact. Once again the music veteran is bringing her talents to the stage with her “Dressed to Kill Tour,” more widely known as the “D2K Tour.” With dates all over the country, this powerhouse singer is giving her fans what they want for the next few months.
The lineup for this year’s iHeartRadio Music Festival might be enough to make you pack your bags and take a trip to Las Vegas, Nevada. With artists from Weezer to One Direction to Nicki Minaj, it’s definitely going to be a place to be.
So classes are about to start up and so is the craving for new music for our daily commute to campus. What do we do? We go to the iTunes top singles list or type in that same band name we’ve been listening to since 2010. Not that there’s a problem with this, but it’s time for a change and our devices are begging us to download something new.
After waiting 4 months for a rescheduled show to happen after the original show was cancelled due to a case of the flu, I was finally able to attend Miley Cyrus first tour (apart from Disney), respectfully called the Bangerz Tour. For those of you that don’t know who Miley Cyrus is, (and for those that need a little refresher), Cyrus is a globally known American pop sensation that took the world by storm in 2006 with her Disney TV debut on the musical sitcom Hannah Montana. October 2013 saw Cyrus drop her first solo effort “BANGERZ” which landed at the top of the Billboard 200 Charts, with the highly anticipated first single “We Cant Stop” and the ever-controversial #1 single “Wrecking Ball” that helped push the album to the top.
