Tonight at 11, UKNY marks its first anniversary on WFUV. While the show usually focuses on emerging and established British artists, this week—in honor of Independence Day—the former colonies and the motherland converge for a British-American edition, celebrating bands and collaborations that bridge both countries, like Fleetwood Mac, Blood Orange and Friends' Samantha Urbani (pictured), Atoms For Peace, Big Deal, The Kills … and even Monty Python.
Please join me on UKNY, Saturday nights at 11p.m. EST, following Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"® and Marshall Crenshaw's "The Bottomless Pit" on 90.7 WFUV, also streaming online.
Away for the long Fourth of July weekend? You can find UKNY in the FUV archives up to two weeks after broadcast.
