Listener’s Block: The Evolution of Finals Week

posted on Apr.28, 2014

Ahhh, finals season. Spring is in full swing, and the weather nearly feels like summer. And yet here you are: cooped up inside, studying for finals. As we quickly come to the end of the semester, I’ll keep this week’s post short and sweet. You know, so you can “study” and all. Here’s a playlist (in everyone’s love-to-hate listicle format) to celebrate the seven steps we all experience during these critical moments in our academic careers.

Step 1. Legit, I’m gonna start studying.
Ratatat – “Sunblocks”
Luciole – “J’attends”
Astronautica – “Cruise”

Step 2. In the ZOOoOoOOOoOoNe
Calhoun – “Fatal Flaws”
Cold War Kids – “Miracle Mile”
Lucius – “Turn It Around”

Step 3. Regretting past decisions to not study/work harder earlier in the semester
CHVRCHES – “Gun”
Haim – “Don’t Save Me”
My Morning Jacket – “Outta My System”

Step 4. Drink, Drank, Drunk
Belle & Sebastian – “Mr. Richard”
Caesars – “Jerk It Out”
Jack Moy & Glöden – “Drink, Drank, Drunk”

Step 5. Reminiscing Awkward High School Days
Lit – “My Own Worst Enemy”
Brand New – “Jude Law and a Semester Abroad”
Panic! At The Disco – “That Green Gentleman”

Step 6. Eff this. Bring on summer already.
Crystal Fighters – “Plage”
Girls – “Honey Bunny”
Graffiti6 – “Washed My Sins”

Step 7. OWNING FINALS TIME
Kaiser Chiefs – “Never Miss A Beat”
Fatboy Slim – “Praise You”
Metric – “Stadium Love”

A Special Message from DJ Ms. Sue Ms. Sue

posted on Apr.27, 2014

Thank you to all my radio and online listeners for 36 years. Saturday May 3, 2014 will start my official Trenton Thunder baseball summer schedule: 9p-1a. I will be broadcasting my show live on www.wtsr.org, no matter what happens, while the thunder baseball game is being aired live on 91.3 fm.

Always keep in mind… if it rains, there may be a rain delay or canceled game. Then you will hear me on 91.3fm and online at my regular time 9p-1a. We have at least 20 weeks of Saturday Night games, so I am looking forward to a great Thunder season and bringing you great music.

Saturday June 28, 2014, I will start my 37th year on WTSR 91.3fm. This is truly a blessing for me.

To celebrate, I will be having a DJ Ms. Sue Ms. Sue anniversary party from 9p-1a on Friday July, 25, 2014 at the The Big Easy in Trenton, NJ. Spread the word. More details to come via WTSR’s facebook page.


Listener’s Block: Whistling Tunes

posted on Apr.21, 2014

There’s something inherently magical about producing song straight from the human body. Maybe it’s just me, but whenever I come across songs that have clapping, stomping, snapping, whistling, or what have you, I get a little giddy (read: really damn giddy) on the inside. Beyond singing, these are the methods by which humans can make music without the help of any instruments. Whistling especially has a particular quality that adds this kinetic, honest energy to any song. For any fellow diehard Andrew Bird fans, believe me; it took everything I had to resist putting more than one of his infinite whistling songs on this playlist. But in this week’s installation of Listener’s Block, we explore the best whistling tunes that the world of indie alternative music has to offer. So go ahead, and press play. It’s okay; I won’t judge you if you inadvertently start whistling along.
