Today is the deadline to sign up for health insurance this year under the Affordable Care Act at healthcare.gov. Folks in need of that have until midnight to sign up. You only have until 9am to submit your requests for the WFUV Question of the Day: songs about doctors, nurses, medicine, etc. Leave them in the comments below and we'll spin a set this morning.
Here's what we played this morning:
"I Don't Want to Die (in the Hospital) - Conor Oberst
"I Wanna Be Sedated" - The Ramones
Affairs of the heart take center stage on Heart Murmurs, the new album from singer-songwriter Jeremy Messersmith.
Tonight on UKNY at 11, we'll stretch from Sunderland to Edinburgh to New York's Park Avenue Armory with music from School of Language, Smoke Fairies (pictured), the xx, Withered Hand, Forest Swords and Kate Bush. Did you manage to buy a ticket to one of Kate's shows this summer and fall at London's Hammersmith Apollo? If you didn't, you weren't alone—all 77,000 tickets to 22 shows sold out in under 15 minutes on Friday.
I'm sorry to say that last week's Scott Asheton tribute didn't run as planned, due to gremlins, sabotage, user error, or none—or all—of the above. So tonight's "The Bottomless Pit" at 10 will be a second try at honoring Scott and his many bands, like The Stooges, Sonic's Rendezvous Band, Dark Carnival and the Scott Morgan Band.
