THE NEW SOUND OF THE MON VALLEY

Now playing on WMCK.FM: "Lie Lie Lie," Metric

Wednesday November 04, 2015

From Wikipedia:

Pagans in Vegas is the sixth studio album by Canadian indie rock band Metric, which was released on Sept. 18, 2015. The first single, "The Shade," was released on May 11, 2015. "Cascades" was released as the second of the album on 2 June 2015. On July 7, 2015, the band released "Too Bad, So Sad" as the third single via a new iOS and Android app it created called "Pagan Portal," which allows fans to listen to tracks off the album as they're released and read newsletters from the band.

A Canadian rock band founded in 1998 in Toronto, Metric is Emily Haines (lead vocals, synthesizers, guitar, tambourine, harmonica, piano), James Shaw (guitar, synthesizers, theremin, backing vocals), Joshua Winstead (bass, synthesizers, backing vocals) and Joules Scott-Key (drums, percussion). The band started in 1998 as a duo formed by Haines and Shaw with the name "Mainstream."  After releasing an EP titled Mainstream EP, they changed the band's name to Metric, after a sound that was programmed by Shaw on his keyboard. In 2001, Winstead and Scott-Key joined them.

Special programming for Halloween!

Friday October 30, 2015

...

Happy Halloween! If you're going to be handing out candy to trick-or-treaters, make sure to take WMCK.FM with you on Oct. 31! We'll have a full evening of special Halloween programming.

Following "Radio 9" from 12 to 3 p.m. and "Goffus' Golden Oldies" from 3 to 5 p.m., we'll have classic old-time radio shows with spooky or Halloween themes.

We'll start out with classic comedy from "Fibber McGee and Molly" and Jack Benny, followed by "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" and episodes of the science fiction classics, "Suspense" and "X-Minus-One."

Then, at 10 o'clock, it's the famous October 30, 1938 episode of "The Mercury Radio Theater" which dramatized H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds," and panicked thousands of people, including locally here in the Mon Valley.

If you're going trick-or-treating, or to a Halloween party, don't forget that you can take WMCK.FM with you, wherever you go, with our free Android app, or by tuning in on your smartphone using the free TuneIn app.
