As Msu’s year comes to an end The Basement would like to remind listners that we will be running strong all summer long in the usual time slot. Also tonight on the show we brought in Northline and The Damn Van Cannibals to play some live acoustic jams, and talk about upcoming fun. Below is the playlist for the night.: Read More…
Host Berl Schwartz speaks with Michigan State University law Professor Mae Kukendall, artist Mark Chatterley, Lansing City Councilwoman Jessica Yorko and Jeffrey Hank, a candidate for the 8th Congressional District.
Exposure Host Abbie Newton welcomes Sexperts Dr. Dennis Martell, Dr. Tina Timm, Jenelle Marie and Kevin Bator to the studio to talk about sensuality, kissing and sensory attraction on Sexposure.
Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s are a band just as thought out and interesting as their name implies. Hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana they’ve been churning out music since 2005 and the band itself has been constantly evolving. They’ve gone from quiet indie introspective alt rock to heavier rock riffs and emotional yelling and back to the former since their inception and the sky seems to be the limit as to what they’ll do next.
Their latest creation is an album titled “Slingshot to Heaven” and visits their earlier quiet introspective sound while retaining the heavier elements of their latest album “Rot Gut Domestic.” It all blends together nicely to make an album that, despite having a quieter sound, begs to be played loud and true.
Fino opens this week’s episode of The Pact with a rant on the alleged racist comments of L.A. Clippers’ owner, Donald Sterling.
After a quick break, Lou and Austin wrap up the Bruins vs. Wings series and Lou cashes in on the two’s pre-series bet.
Fino, Faith and Harry then talk about the rights NCAA athletes should have. In the wake of Mitch McGary’s NBA draft declaration, does that add a different aspect to the Northwestern unionization debate?
Tune in to The Pact every Monday from 7-8 p.m. on 88.9FM or listen live online at impact89fm.org/sports.
