Alice D. and Textasy host the international psychedelia show The New Elastic Infinite, and bring it down home with two hours of psychedelic country and western music, and find that the southern mind doesn’t always turn to thoughts of peace and love. Download or listen:

Like his heroes George Strait and Ketih Whitley, William is unapologetically Country. His songs, while rooted in the present, call to mind simpler times when the back porch was where folks gathered to network. The first track on this show, ‘Trash,’ paints a picture of rural life that speaks to his small town sensibilities. ”This song identifies who I am,” he says. ”It shows character and that’s important where I’m from. You learn to say ‘yes, ma’am’ and ‘no, sir,’ and to open the door for the ladies.”

Formerly of former college radio station WPGU, the crew of Surfabilly Freakout in exile have landed on the shores of WEFT to spill an hour of hell-raising, hair-raising, cacti-and-bacon-infused tequila-soaked mayhem. Press play and stand way back from the radio or you may wake up in the next room in a sticky puddle of malt liquor with the tire tracks of a stolen pink-and-black Cadillac criss-crossing your face. This is high-voltage radio of the sort that gentle WEFT is barely able to broadcast without melting its equipment and triggering a prairie fire in its front-door weed garden. Gape as you listen to the internet-authenticated on-air Baptism of an enthused-if-bewildered two-month-old, and experience the elation of the entire crew on the day of Polkapallooza, or Porkapallooza. Hell, we don’t know. The rock geeks are riding in the rumble seat for this one.
