Tonight's "The Whole Wide World" at 6 covers a lot of territory. It's palindrome week! Every day for the next week, the date is the same backwards and forwards.

You’ll hear songs of joy, a new genre called thrash jazz, and Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound.

Also, birthday celebrants Sam Cooke and Malcolm McLaren and a tribute to Jerry Brandt who created the East Village's Electric Circus nightclub and disco.

That's "The Whole Wide World," Fridays from 6-9p.m. on 90.7, streaming online and available at the Weekend Archives after broadcast.
