This morning, Wilco launched a “radio” program on their website in their continuing celebration of A.M. and Being There, the band’s first two albums, which came out in 1995 and 1996, respectively, and received deluxe rereleases last year.
Wilcoworld Radio, promises over 10 unique hours of programming that will be broadcast throughout this weekend.
The schedule laid out on the Radio’s website includes guest DJ sets from veteran Rolling Stone writer David Fricke, Jeff Tweedy’s son and bandmate (in the appropriately named duo Tweedy) Spencer, A.M. and Being There producer Cheryl Pawelski and former Chicago DJ Robert Chase; outtakes from both of the albums; live sets from 1996; a discussion with band members Tweedy and John Stirratt talking with Steven Hyden, an author and music critic who wrote liner notes for the Being There reissue, for his podcast Celebration Rock; and more. The whole thing rounds out with Wilco’s 2017 Solid Sound Festival opening set, where they played Being There in its entirety.
