Snackpoint Charlie: Peter Laughner
90.7-FM and wgxc.org
Hosted by Jeff Economy.
Rebroadcast from Aug. 7, 2019. Snackpoint Charlie has taken listeners to some exotic and far-flung locales, but this month’s transmission finds us journeying to a land that very few have experienced: the underground music scene of mid-1970s Cleveland, Ohio. In our first-ever Very Special Episode we’ll be celebrating the late Peter Laughner, founding member of Pere Ubu and subject of a newly-released, long-awaited retrospective boxed set. You'll hear rare and previously unreleased songs from all phases of Laughner’s career, and we’ll talk with his bandmates Cynthia Black and Albert Dennis as well as his close friend Anastasia Pantsios, who share never-before-heard stories and insights. This Wednesday night from 10PM to Midnight on Snackpoint Charlie.
