I met with a friend over spring break, one I hadn’t seen in almost a year. It was a spontaneous thing, our meeting; what began as a short “do u wanna brunch @ the depot on fri” text became an impromptu sleepover in her dad’s basement, where we didn’t crash until the sun came up, despite the fact that I had driven for two hours straight on a whim, directly following a shift at work, to make this happen.
Yesterday, February 26th, we celebrate the birthday of the infamous Johnny Cash. Born in 1932, Cash was destined to be one of the world’s top musicians of his time and his legacy in music lives on today. Some of his chart-toppers include “I Walk the Line” (1957), “Hurt” (2002), “Ring of Fire” (1963), and my personal favorite, “Folsom Prison Blues” (1957). We all know Cash as an influential father of country music, but I’m writing this article to tell you a little bit about the legend that you may not know yet.
I have a terrible backlog on my hands. There are at least 20 unread books on my shelves and twice that many on my bucket list (or there would be, if I faced my mortality and made one.) My film backlog is even worse. I have yet to see "Blade Runner: 2049," because I have been waiting for the past eight months to watch the original first.
Black Panther: The Album is exactly what was needed this February. This movie soundtrack was produced and written primarily under Kendrick Lamar’s supervision on TDE/Interscope records. It has intense swelling emotional songs such as "Pray for Me" and "All the Stars" while still managing to have solid club hits like "X." This album has something for fans of anything from trap to trance RnB and with heavy guest hitters like SZA, The Weeknd and ScHoolboy Q, this movie soundtrack is guaranteed to have someone on there that you’re a fan of. All in all, this album is a great project that would be a smash hit even if it wasn’t tied to Marvel’s newest box office hit
This past Saturday night The Lone Bellow performed in Opelika at the John Emerald Distillery. The band members led the audience through a range of emotions throughout the night from bluegrass stomp to somber, serious melodies that showcased the band members clustered together around one microphone eliciting complete silence from the audience in a manner I’ve never experienced before in seeing live music.
When Nothing More came out with their album The Stories We Tell Ourselves last September, my initial listen didn’t necessarily impress me. There were some decent songs on the album, but I lazily listened through without going too far in-depth. But when the 2018 Grammy nominations came out and I saw that Nothing More had three nominations, I thought perhaps I should give a full dive into the album and see if there was anything I was missing. And, oh my God, I was missing a lot.
It’s still weird to think that Auburn is sitting atop the SEC in basketball.
A brand new podcast from WEGL Sports Director Evan Blank features interviews with people he finds interesting and wants to hear from in long-form conversation you can't get from a ten minute radio segment.
AUBURN, Ala. (WEGL) - March Madness is on the horizon, and Auburn basketball fans have enjoyed this Cinderella season, which has been made even sweeter in the latest tournament projections released.
After what turned out to be one of the most exciting games for Auburn Football in a couple of years, most, if not all, fans immediately turned their attention from Georgia to Alabama. Yet, the Tigers have a game to close out the non-conference slate this Saturday against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks. It’s an eeeeearly kick at Jordan-Hare Stadium at 11 AM, so it won’t be as rowdy as usual, especially considering the student section will likely be decimated due to this little thing called Thanksgiving Break. SO before all that gets underway, here are a couple of big things to watch before Auburn takes on Alabama ULM.
This week’s featured DJ is Tim Dodge, a reference librarian at the Ralph Brown Draughon Library. At WEGL, we know him by his on-air name of Dr. Hepcat. Dr. Hepcat has been a part of WEGL since May of 1998, hosting his show, The Golden Oldies, each week since then. He’s a big deal around the station—he’s been around longer than anyone on staff or any of the other DJs. I had the awesome chance to interview the legend himself, and our conversation went a little something like this:
Over the past six months, Auburn athletics have constantly been in the spotlight for various reasons. It was the men’s basketball team that garnered national attention back in late September when associate head coach Chuck Person was arrested and charged with six counts of federal corruption.
1. Auburn’s defense was spectacular
This week, I had the chance to talk to Romano Jesus, a senior from Denver, Colorado. He studies Communications, and his show, The 52-80, comes on every Wednesday night at 9PM.
1) Special teams concerns flipped in this game.
