Keep Ya Head Up: Stream the November (Rain) 2018 edition of What’s The Frequency?! on WXPN - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart
WTFXPN | still from video

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.

Sometimes I go into WTFXPN knowing exactly what I want to play. And sometimes the request channels totally take the reins.

On a soggy, cold Friday night in the month of November, the year of 2018, the latter occurred, with some listeners asking for deep cuts from OutKast, Beat Happening, Rainer Maria and Faith No More; other listers making requests in response to previous requests (Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance” in response to The Mountain Goats’ “No Children” and its “I hope you die” chorus, a parallel that’s more than coincidental), and me racing to keep up with it all.

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 December 14th, 2018.
