Listen to Los Planetas (the planets) on WNJR. Los Planetas is a Spanish indie band, that started out in late 1990s in the city of Granada. The Band's first big success was the album "Super 8" with a hit "Que puedro hacer"(What can I do?) The band has been successfully performing through the 2000s. Spanish national public radio station Radio 3 has frequently played Los Planetas new masterpieces. After their first album, the group released new production which got quickly caught on in the Spanish indie scene:
"Una semana en el motor de un autobús" (A week in the engine of a bus)
Unidad de Desplazamiento" (Movement unit)
"Encuentro con entidades" (Encounter with entities)
The band also released several compilation albums, one of them being "Canciones para una orquesta química" (Songs for a chemical orchestra)
Los Planetas' songs are mostly inspired by English-language rock bands such as Joy Division and Mercury Rev. The band is considered as a key point in the world of Spanish indie music.

Ty Greenwood interviewed one of the actors from the American Shakespeare Center who will be in the play “Much Ado About Nothing” being performed tonight at W&J College!
If you didn't catch his live interview with Andrew Goldwasser, head to the Archive tab at wnjr.org to listen to it on our SoundCloud. Don't miss your chance to see one of Shakespeare's most popular plays tonight at 7:30pm in W&J's own Olin Theater! Tickets are currently on sale at the box office.
"Much Ado is a play about finding your soul mate and about what to do once you’ve found him or her. It’s about the sweet pain that comes from surrendering your heart and head to the biggest love you can imagine. It’s about the friends who know you well enough to push you in the direction you ought to be going."
People often say good rap music is just a form of poetry over a rhythmical tune...well Raz Simone has proven this true. With tracks such as "These Words" and "My People", Raz Simone has set the stage for poetic rap. The stories told with this album illustrates that rapping is more than just music, its art in its best form. Cognitive Dissonance Part II is the artist's fourth release and I don't see him slowing down anytime soon!
There's a movement occurring in the Hip Hop game so don't be left out, go check Raz out !!!!

Hey Guys! I hope everyone had a fabulous break (I know I did)! It's officially time to jump back into the groove of things. Last night on "Late Night Snack" with myself and Ty decided to have a show with light topics. We discussed hot topics that happened over spring break such as Raven-Symone's comments on the first lady and controversies surrounding the new hit show "Empire" on Fox. We even gave tips on how to recover from spring break and how to get back into "school mode." Tune in next Monday at 11PM for our next show.
