So, are we allowed to shamelessly promote our own stuff in this place? I'm going to assume that it's okay in my own thread at least.

Anyway, I'm one on the music directors at WXDU in Durham, and I have a show on Thursday nights from 8-10pm (with tonight being a rare exception). I'm happy to take requests and whatnot, and sometimes I have concert tickets to give away. You can tune in at 88.7FM in the triangle area or listen to us streaming.

There are lots of other great shows that are worth checking out too.

Also, last year WXDU ran a sort of Punk/Hardcore March Madness tournament called Slam Dance 2011. We made a bracket of 64 punk and hardcore bands and asked listeners to vote to determine who would move on to successive rounds. Minutemen eventually won the whole thing (beating out Flipper in the final round).

Well, this year we're back with Slam Dance 2012. It's going to be a similar format- a 64 band tournament that will run through March. Right now we are in the band selection phase, and we are asking listeners to vote for bands they want to see. You can suggest them here:

Every Monday night from 10pm to midnight, we will have a radio show covering the tournament, revealing the votes, discussing the matchups. It sort of ends up being incredibly nerdy, punk Sportscenter. I don't know if that is at all appealing to anyone.

Anyway, vote or tune in if you are so inclined.
