The Wangmobile is going in for an airbag recall in the Couv tomorrow at 7 AM, so my preparations for this week’s What’s This Called? are going to be on the fly.

With this in mind, what a great week to delve into the classic cd library in the KPSU studio. Lets be real, even at KPSU not that many djs ever open the top couple drawers of the cabinet and wax nostalgic all over obscure electronic experimental compilations with Nurse With Wound and Bastard Noise, but you know that your host Ricardo Wang does. And so this week it will be ALL recordings from the first few drawers of the KPSU cd library. What weird indie underground experiments showed up in 1994 when the station began?
