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.
