Resurrection Sunday- “A little bit of Uh-huh and a whole lot of Oh Yeah”
Do you ever miss those Sunday nights, staying up late to watch YOUR favorite bands on MTV’s “120 Minutes”? Bands like The Cure, R.E.M., and Depeche Mode. Do you remember the thrill of discovering some new music that blew your socks backwards? Do you ever think, “Those crazy kids today with their long hair and ripped jeans don’t know music-The Clash, The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, NOW that’s music!” Well then, Resurrection Sunday is YOUR show.
Every Sunday morning from 8 to noon we drop the needle(actually a laser, but needle sounds better) on your favorite classic alternative, punk, ska, new wave, no wave, reggae, goth, industrial, college, post modern tracks from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. That’s the “Uh-huh”. Mix that with a healthy dose of today’s very best new indie, alternative and new music from your favorite 80’s bands and you’ve got the “Oh Yeah”. It’s not like anything else on radio today.
Every Sunday-Joe, the host of Resurrection Sunday, hand picks from his own personal collection an eclectic mix of classic alternative tunes. He also throws in his “cherry picked” favorites from the tons of new music that floats his way every week. Joe has been creating mixed tapes, radio shows, radio stations and playlists on the air and in his head for over 25 years. He is one of those crazy kids that worked at “The Planet”, a lifelong resident of Springfield (except for a year in St. Louis, which he would rather not speak about) and a graduate of Missouri State University. When not waking up way too early on Sunday mornings to be a DJ, he is reading, listening to music, thinking about the world’s problems, cooking, coaching baseball, watching baseball, making CD mixes for friends, scheming or petting one of his three dogs. He is widely considered by himself and few other people to be an expert on 80’s alternative music (if there is such thing).
So there you have it, Resurrection Sunday in a nutshell. So next time you have the urge to yell at the neighbor kids to get off the lawn—tune in to Resurrection Sunday, turn it up loud and listen to the “Uh-huh” and the “Oh yeah”.
