#WTFXPN, August 2018

On the second Friday of every month, WXPN’s John Vettese hosts WHAT’S THE FREQUENCY?!?!!, a four-hour, request driven showcase of 90s and 90s-adjacent music. If you can’t tune in live, we’ve got archives of each episode for you here on The Key.

October is my favorite month of the year and the second Friday is my favorite day of the month, so the October edition of What’s The Frequency is always something special.

This time around, I delved into the autumnal vibes and moods with goth-leaning nuggets and otherwise ominous selections from The Cure, Angelfish, Dr. Octagon and DJ Shadow. Indie rock had a strong showing, and thanks to the recent Death Cab for Cutie double header at The Tower Theater, we mixed in some Letters to Cleo, Number One Cup, and that dog. And the requests were out of control this month, with listeners recommending fantastic cuts by Dub Narcotic Soundsystem, Ghost Town DJs, Sleater-Kinney, Slint and more.

Listen to an archive of the entire show below, subscribe to the official #WTFXPN Spotify Playlist here, and tune in for the next edition on November 9th, 2018.
