In case you missed the companion radio show to this website’s first broadcast on Saturday at 1 PM (our regular time slot going forward in the fall semester), we are here to give you what you missed on. At the bottom of this post, you can listen to a Spotify playlist of the songs we played on the show on the 23rd. This will be a weekly occurring post, which will often go into depth about the selection process for the songs we play on the show.
For this first show, we wanted to emphasize our name for the show and play some of the best that the Garden State has to offer- artists from the great state of New Jersey (such as the debut of the new album from New Brunswick, NJ based The Gaslight Anthem), songs that are named after the state’s nickname (like A Will Away’s “The Garden State”), and New Jersey namedrops (as in the classic line “I can’t wait to hit the stage, and say hello to Jersey” from The Starting Line’s “Given the Chance.”)
It also featured four acoustic versions of songs listed on here (the songs from Foxing, Pentimento, You Blew It!, and Braid) which come from our acoustic sessions with those bands. You can find all four of those acoustic sessions on this very website!
You can check the full playlist below, and be sure to tune in next week on August 30 at 1 PM on www.wtsr.org or at 91.3 FM in the Greater Trenton area, as a full crew brings you the best in emo music.
