Monday, March 21 at 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. – Knight Life

This week “The Knight Life,” will feature podcasts from hosts William Tran and Jakob McWhinney

Still Processing: William Tran takes us on a songwriting journey that explores the depths of the creative process. Along the way, we learn how we can leverage creativity to process trauma.

The Listening Machine: In the first half of the final episode of season 1, which focused on San Diegans’ experiences living through the COVID-19 pandemic, we hear voicemails from a man hurt by his twin’s refusal to get a vaccine, and from a grandmother frustrated that her granddaughter hasn’t been allowed to get vaccinated. Host Jakob McWhinney also speaks to San Diego City College philosophy professor Soon-Ah Fadness about the ethics of vaccination.

Tuesday, March 22 at 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.– Radio Static

Curating experimental music from the San Diego/Tijuana region, host Philip Salata brings us an hour of local sounds that disintegrate, crash, burn, harmonize, vibrate, and subvert. “Radio Static” highlights the work of artists who rethink conventions in music making.

Listen-in to be immersed in devised sound explorations or instrumental improvisations. You might hear the sound of tectonic plates converging, or a duet for viola and salt, sounds electronic and analog, lost and found.  

Wednesday, March 23 at 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. – Newscene Radio

A weekly show produced by the students of CTTV/Newscene, the award winning Radio, Television & Film program at City College. 

Thursday, March 24 at 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. – Folk Punk Highlights

FolkPunk Highlights, hosted by Sierra, features artists that capture punk style art with classic folk instruments and tunes. Including local San Diego artists as well as those iconic to the genre who have performed in the region, the show focuses on bands whose music tell stories about the hardships of marginalized life and issues that are in desperate need of focus, such as trauma, recovery, the inefficiencies of capitalism, and the effects of xenophobia on a nation.

Sierra, who fell hard and fast for the folkpunk sounds will take you down the genre rabbit hole with bands like The Mountain Goats and Pat The Bunny, as well as DIY bands straight out of San Diego, like Sledding with Tigers, or Bogsey and the Argonauts.
