WUOG has great specialty shows. Now, more than ever, you’re able to listen to recorded specialty shows on demand online. Here are some highlighted shows from this week.
WUOG was born on October 16th, 1972 at 2 pm, meaning we are now 37 years old!!
Come out to Cine (234 W. Hancock Ave.) at 8 pm to experience a once in a lifetime performance of HALLOWEEN: LIVE! Halloween Live is a screening of John Carpenter’s 1978 classic “Halloween” with its soundtrack, dialogue, and sound effects recreated by a cast of local musicians and voice actors. Following Halloween Live will be performances by two local bands, THE AGENDA and BAMBARA!
The event is free, but a suggested $3-5 donation would be so kind of you so that we can help out our buds over at AIDS ATHENS!
AIDS Athens mission is to serve and address the needs of individuals infected and affected by HIV/AIDS through supportive services and to prevent the spread of the disease through education and outreach. AIDS Athens vision is to enhance and enrich the quality of life for those living with HIV/AIDS, as well as their friends, families and partners. The organization also seeks to effect a fundamental change in society’s attitude toward persons infected with HIV/AIDS. For more information, visit www.aidsathens.org.
Pride Prade and Baclavaca have made tracks available for free download. You can find these tracks on the Local Music blog. If you didn’t know, WUOG is now accepting Digital Download Submissions from Georgia bands. Bands give WUOG the tracks and WUOG gives them to you. We love local music and want you to love our favorite local artists. We’ve received quite a few tracks and are still sorting through them – if yours isn’t posted yet, don’t despair!
We have also been improving our archive of Live in the Lobby recordings. These recordings are also available for download. Check out this live performance of Venice is Sinking from 2006! WUOG loves Athens Music!
