12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Pete Seeger Feature Story News looks back at the life of musician Pete Seeger.
1 a.m.: Vital Weekly: Tim Feeney
2 a.m.: Bob's Slacktime Funhouse: Night Lights OUT, seekers! Through the velvet darkness, in the midnight hour, in that darkest dark before dawn, Doc and Bugsy plumb the mysteries of that universally experienced state of suspended light: the NIGHT. The Doktors throw a million-candlepower spotlight on the effects of negative brain stimulus as they tickle your rods, *twup* your cones, and otherwise reset your circadian rhythms to something more dissyncopated. The treatment includes Tedman's cover of the Kiss anthem "King of the Night Time," Tom Waits, Scott Chapin, Invisible Touch, Deerhoof, the Misfits, the Cowboy Junkies, Hendrix, Perry & Kingsley, the Cockroaches, Jack Kerouac & Steve Allen, Hank Williams, John Cale, Faith No More, Fugazi, Sun Ra...and a dramatic reading of the immortal ode "(Feel the Beat of the) Rhythm of the Night" by DeBarge. It's enough to scare that ghostly monster legcatcher under your bed into swearing off ankle grabbing forever. From WREK in Atlanta.
