Get two hours of tunes for you Tuesday, here on the The Tryst. DJ Emily navigates you through some of BTR’s old favs and new tracks in rotation.
The Listening Booth goes on the road today, with a playlist spanning the Northside Festival in Williamsburg + the Bonnaroo stages in Manchester Tennessee. Just in time for both, DJRePete is spinning a mix guide for festival goers and/or a playlist for those who want to attend vicariously. Hit up alternative from Jeff the Brotherhood and the Heliotropes, electronica crossover with Scam Avenue and Bob Moses, and blues-funk from Charles Bradley and Lettuce. Plus, catch a few populist b-side tracks from Chvrches and Two Door Cinema Club, as well as appropriate festival trippy goodness from Tame Impala and Michael Rault. It’s (sorta) officially summer, folks, in the Listening Booth with DJRePete on BTR!
On December 11, 1973, Mark Segal disrupted a live broadcast of the CBS Evening News when he sat on the desk directly between the camera and news anchor Walter Cronkite, yelling, “Gays protest CBS prejudice!” He was wrestled to the studio floor by the stagehands on live national television, thus ending LGBT invisibility. But this one victory left many more battles to fight, and creativity was required to find a way to challenge stereotypes surrounding the LGBT community. Mark Segal’s job, as he saw it, was to show the nation who gay people are: our sons, daughters, fathers, and mothers.
