Well my friends, times are a-changing. Wednesday was longtime Program Director Kyle Paczkontifzski’s (Or whatever that last name is) last day here at the station. And while we wish him the best in California, Nova Scotia, Atlantis or where ever else he claims to be going, we’re going to miss him dearly. To help with the pain and bring us back to elementary school graduation, we sang him out properly with Vitamin C’s infamous song, Gradation.
But, don’t worry. We’ve found a more than qualified person to fill his shoes and keep bringing you the Music That Matters here at Impact 89FM, our very own Marie Steinbock. We invite you to help us lovingly remember all the times we’ve had with dearest Kyle and take a few minutes to relive Graduation and all it’s ’00 glory.
Warning: Her hair is blindingly bright orange. Wear some sunglasses to protect your eyes.

As I and the rest of the universe still reels from the loss of Death Grips, I’ve been diving back into some of their (relatively) older albums and I can confidently say the Fever (Aye Aye) is my fav DG jam.
Wild Beasts released their latest album Present Tense back in February (available here). The band has coordinated remixes of their single “Mecca” from British producer SOHN and Detroit producer Juan Atkins. SOHN’s version of “Mecca” strategically places echoes of electronic elements between the perfectly-paired airy vocals of Wild Beasts’ Hayden Thorpe.
Wild Beasts will be performing at Pitchfork Music Festival on Saturday, July 19th. Tune in to our Top 5 at 5 Wednesday, July 16 for your chance to win a pair of tickets (did we mention it’s sold out?????)

This week’s show covered local and world soccer while also touching on the storylines of the NBA free agency and LeBron James’ second decision to return home to Cleveland.
The World Cup has come to an end and the panel debates the Final match and Fino regretfully pays up on a bet between Faith and himself.
As the world’s tournament came to end end, so did the regular season of local soccer team, Lansing United. United wrapped up a Great Lakes West Championship with a 2-2 tie against Detroit City F.C. in front of 2,014 fans at MSU’s DeMartin Stadium. Team owner, Jeremy Sampson joins the show to discuss the dream weekend and announce a massive statement to United fans and the city of East Lansing.
Finally, with LeBron returning to Cleveland, the panel couldn’t resist trying to predict the success of The King with or without Kevin Love and how the Heat may falter with the movement of James.
New week, new Monday, new music. Check out the playlist we have curated just for you below.

On Sunday, my friends and I took a little 8 hour journey drive home from the UP after some 4th of July shenanigans. As far as music in my car goes, you have two options: radio or CDs. Usually I opt for the radio, but after a weekend in a cabin with only bug spray, beer and white bread I did not have the energy to constantly scan the radio as we drove in and out of reach of different stations. Luckily, my friend has an extensive collection of CDs. The sun was setting and we were all feeling peaceful after a nature-filled weekend, but sad that we had to leave all it’s beauty behind. Band of Horses’ Acoustic at the Ryman played in the background and completed the movie scene we seemed to be unknowingly a part of. Ever since then I have been listening to them – dreaming of log cabins, hammocks, and infinite forests ~
