The Thursday Mix. 6/4/15.
Your Wednesday start on BTR is as diverse as it is informative, as DJRePete catches you up on the latest releases, including the new album by Summer Camp that he’s absolutely obsessed with, fresh Unknown Mortal Orchestra which has a colorful rare vinyl release, and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard which of course is just fun to say. Also, tune in for the first of many BTR tribute sets as the station celebrates its 10th birthday later this month. DJRePete’s inaugural celebratory set includes throwbacks from Laura Marling and the Depreciation Guild. And by the end of the mix, you’ll be zoning out with a little jazz from the likes of Antônio Carlos Jobim. That’s your midweek mix from DJRePete on BTR!
Enjoy a 90-minute set of music with your host, DJ Emily.

Finish up the month with me, DJ Drew, and my always awesome Sunday Show! My double shot block this week includes Hot Chip, The Milk Carton Kids and Jim O’Rourke. Joanna Gruesome kicks it off and Squarepusher ends it all. Let’s do Sunday….shall we?

Today I poll some of my fellow DJs & co-workers at BTR about what kind of music they fancy whilst on vacation. Plus music from Sharp Veins, Sheer Mag, Ali Farka Toure, Patrick Watson and more
On today’s God Bless Weirdmerica we’ve got some fantastic new music: Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Gut Club, and a long one from Jim O’Rourke. One of the best things about BTR compared to other types of radio, is that we have the freedom to explore and play some longer songs. Which is perfect for God Bless Weirdmerica- because long songs are oftentimes weird and experimental. Check out a few of them on the show today! And don’t forget to check out BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Instagram, SoundCloud, and Pinterest!

Sundays with DJ Drew on BTR
This week, DJs Molly and Dane talk about awkward situations and how to survive them. They also discuss stay at home moms, feminism, and what not to do on a first date.
It’s finally summer! Ok, technically it’s still spring, but to celebrate that beginning-of-summer, wrapping-up-the-school-year, we’re-just-gonna-watch-movies-insted-of-learn feeling, I’m going to start of the show with some nostalgic tracks! (And, of course, some new stuff after that.) And don’t forget to hop on over to Facebook and give us a like! We’ve got everything you need to know about BTR posted on there!
This week, I’m honored to have as my guest Kelly Holmes, founder of Native Max, the first fashion magazine focused on the Native American community. Armed with passion, determination and ambition, Kelly launched the magazine when she was just twenty years old, and it has grown to reach a global audience in four short years! But that comes as no surprise: Kelly and her team have created a polished, high-end publication with substantive editorials and engaging features, offering an invaluable venue for Native fashion talent. On today’s show, Kelly will talk about the moment that led her to launch Native Max; some of the other Native American women leading the way in contemporary fashion; the misrepresentation of Native culture within the larger fashion industry; the changes she hopes to effect through Native Max; and more. Plus, I’ve got a playlist full of brand new music, including tracks from Montreal’s experimental Patrick Watson, Dutch multi-instrumentalist Jacco Gardner, and Swedish folk troubadour The Tallest Man On Earth. So join us as we learn more about the exciting, innovative fashion work coming from Native American communities, this week with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
This week we are chatting with author Sarah Lohman who studies the history of 19th and 18th century American recipes!
