2014 will mark WESU’s 75th Anniversary, and we’ve got a metric boatload of events and special programming to celebrate!
One of the special programs will be an hourly, weekly show called “75 Years Of…”. Each month “75 Years Of…” will have a singular theme, and we’ll air 75 songs relevant to that theme throughout the month. Rather than air just our selections, we want YOU, our listeners and friends, to contribute to our playlist by helping us pick the songs!
To kick things off in January, we’ll be featuring “75 Years Of Socially Conscious Music”. Socially Conscious Music includes protest music, songs that call attention to injustice and songs that rail against inequality. Socially Conscious Music transcends genre boundaries; the call to action is what defines this music, not the arrangement or the instruments!
