If you’re wondering how the commercial radio suits manage to stay on top of “urban” culture while reclining in leather ergonomic chairs as they peer out over the panorama of metropolis X from the tinted safety windows of their executive suites, this quote from the Program Director of KHTS in San Diego may satisfy your curiosity, "I need to be tuned into Pop culture and to be tuned into what’s going on with my demo[graphic]. That means I need to be into MTV and what part of Hip-Hop crosses over to there..."
observing this creed are some of WFMU’s own DJs, ears to the ground in pursuit
of the ever-changing tastes of our primary demo. Check out
some of Noah’s upcoming special guests on Coffee Break for Heroes &
Villians, an amazing array of superstars for the overnight hours:
DJ Mathematics of the Wu-Tang Clan this Wed, May 18th, 2am - 6am
Thirstin Howl III, Rack-Lo, & Dana Dane (aka The Spit Factory) next Wed, May 25th, 2am - 6am
