Alice, what can you tell us about the new WBOR zine?
AL: The new zine, Flip Your Shit, is a forum in which anybody can discuss music, share it with other people, or read about other people's experiences with it. We're attempting to broaden people's musical horizons and spread awareness about WBOR as a whole. No matter the kind of music you listen to, or what your opinions on the state of today's music, we encourage people to submit work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lee and Hessler can be heard playing music off the new shelf and requests on "The Emperor's New Grooves" Sunday nights, 8:30-10:00 p.m. on WBOR 91.1 FM.
