Meet the eclectic voices behind the mic at KXUA 88.3 FM!
Sundown Showdown Wednesdays 6:00-7:00pm
hi! I'm Allison, and I play the Sundown Showdown on Wednesday evenings from 6-7 pm. My music taste is kind of all over the place – but my go-to genre (though I hate genres. too broad, not descriptive enough, and micro-genres get too selective and weird. subtweeting Pitchfork on that one) is dusty, fuzzy, nostalgia-filled, warped-record-sounding, lo-fi. think, old Neon Indian, Bibio, Beach Fossils, Summer Camp, Sales, Tennis, Youth Lagoon, etc. I’m also partial to synth - Com Truise, M83 (the synth lords), Tame Impala, Phoenix, Homeshake, Discovery, etc. mac demarco is king. tennis is queen. oldies are still relevant. much of my favorite music reminds me of summertime. acoustic/folk/bluegrass is good, too.
The Main Squeeze Wednesdays 5:00pm-6:00pm
My name is coco and this is my 4th semester DJing for KXUA!! I hope to go into music production so good music is VVVV important to me. my show is a mixture of surf punk / new wave / neo 80s / losangeles house party / cassette tape synth pop. i strive for my show to be like some sort of hybrid between prince, ariel pink, robert smith, debbie harry, and grimes. if you don't know what that would sound like or what i even play, tune in when you're driving at dusk & i (almost) promise you'll love it.
The Higher Hour Sundays 10:00pm-11:00pm
Playing indie/alternative music to try and make your Monday seem a little less daunting and your Sunday night procrastination a little more exciting.
Brain Damage Wednesdays 8:00pm-9:00pm
Brain damage is a Vaporwave centered show, also exploring the different sub-genres revolving around it. Every show is different but it's always a blast. You'll always hear something new and won't ever catch the same song twice!
