4th of July No Skinny Ties Special!

Written by on July 4, 2015

Ricardo Wang‘s weekly radio show What’s This Called? has been around since 1993, and in the late ’90s and early ’00s had a bi-weekly feature called “No Skinny Ties” where Ricardo would play all underground and independent music from the 1980s. Not the “new wave” hits but the no wave, noise rock, post-punk, and outright non-commercial music.

This 4th of July, as has often been the case on Independence Day at KPSU, Ricardo reprises the No Skinny Ties format with an “All Independent American Bands” twist. Thrill to the likes of Big Black, Pussy Galore, Live Skull, Lydia Lunch, Husker Du, Butthole Surfers, Sonic Youth, Green River,The Minutemen, Band of Susans, and MORE!

It’s a special THREE hour edition of the program from Noon to 3 PM Pacific Standard Time STREAMING LIVE LIKE THE BOMBS BURSTING IN AIR!

 

Only the first of the three hours is available here now. We will add the full podcast later.
