Hard to believe that The Kinks have been the subject of only two tribute albums, despite a lengthy history of turning out extraordinary music. That all changes with the forthcoming release of "the kinks unkovered" from Long Island's Paradiddle Records, the label who began the "uncovered" series with 2006's "Bob Dylan Uncovered."
On Sunday morning, April 11th, we'll play some tracks from this release which features Maura Kennedy and a "who's who" of Long Island-based musicians. Caroline Doctorow, James O'Malley, The Lone Sharks, Mary Lamont, Russ Seeger, Hank Stone, Katie Pearlman, Johnny Cuomo, Claudia Jacobs, Patrick Costello, Ghosts of Electricity, The Corduroy Sky, Iridesense, Smile Pretty Misery, and The Blaggards all contributed a track to this project.
Kinks classics like "Dandy" and "Celluloid Heroes" are included in the collection but so are lesser-known songs like "Autumn Almanac" and "Willesdon Green" from the extensive Kinks catalogue.

On Saturday Februray 27th, WUSB will be focusing it's attention on the music and culture of Haiti. Last month, on January 12, a devastating earthquake struck southern Haiti leaving a catastrophic payload. Buildings were grounded, power lines were destroyed and many lives were lost.

An air of chaos is still present in the country, where recovery is slowly beginning to take form.
This is where you, the WUSB listener, can lend a hand. All day and night on Saturday, WUSB DJs and guests will be playing Haitian music and discussing all aspects of the Haitian culture. Join us as we take you through a magical journey of musical richness and cultural depth that illustrate its history and will drive the future of Haiti. We will be urging you to donate money to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund , Yele Haiti and the American Red Cross .
