At 8:00 PM every Monday - Friday, The Rock Show examines the bands, scenes, sounds, and ideas that have been instrumental in the development of modern music. On this 8 O'Clock Break, Dan takes a look at legendary Nigerian artist William Onyeabor.
The Rock Show provides a medium for otherwise unheard music across both terrestrial radio and the Web. To that end, the Rock Show specializes in independent, experimental and underground music—from right here in Chicago, across the country, and around the world. The Rock Show plays anything that attempts to expand the boundaries of music, and not just if it’s got guitars.
The Rock Show can be heard live every Monday-Friday, from 2 - 9 PM [all times CST]. Listeners in the Chicago area can hear WNUR at 89.3 FM. Visit http://wnur.org for more information, including this quarter's programming schedule, or to stream WNUR from anywhere in the world.
