Cause And Effect
JJ & various | Thursday 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
What is dark matter? How do we treat ear worms? Do we have free will? Have I heard this beat before?
Every week Cause and Effect summons your inner music nerd to identify the influences of your favorite musical groups, explore their work and peers, and play new artists following in their footsteps. JJ and a variety of WRIR DJs scour the Internet for interviews and articles, at times receives direct input from artists and labels, and rely on input from fans to develop a music show destined to be added to your weekly calendar. See a sample show below:

7/31/14 Cause & Effect: Mike Birbiglia
My name is Shannon Cleary and I am hosting Cause & Effect this evening. I am beyond excited to do the show tonight. My subject will be comedian Mike Birbiglia. I will be focusing on his career as a storyteller/comedian, several of the music selections made for his film adaptation of his one man show "Sleepwalk With Me," several of his influences as well as his peers and everything in between. This is going to be a diverse episode focusing on the world of comedy and the world of creativity.
