High Impedance

with Murdock

Your increasingly inaccurately titled midnight-oil radio that began as “Electronic Americana seen through the cracked, blurry lens of a man wandering in the woods on a, uh, Spiritual Journey” then blended syncretically with punk and cooked down to a well-rounded meal of guitar-based rock. There's still plenty of sides to go around, so have some more sweet potatoes.

WHRW’s Fall program schedule has begun! On this first, very experimental installment of HIGH IMPEDANCE, I’ve done the best to stretch the limits of the phrase “Harpur Radio Workshop” as far as possible, completely on the fly.

And oh, look! The application playing “Song Cycle” has crashed! What O what shall we do? (Answer: tune in and find out.)

Next week may or may not be this wild. We’ll see where this goes. I’m having a blast and I hope all you other insomniacs are as well. Sleep is for the weak anyway…

When Is It On?

This show is not currently scheduled. Check back next semester or during signups!
