KWCW Show of the Week: Routine Maintenance

Daniel Kim

Show: Routine Maintenance

Time: Fridays, 8 a.m.- 10 p.m.

Host: Nolan Bishop

KWCW gives first-year Nolan Bishop  the venue to explore the musical field. Bishop prefers to let the music do the talking during the show, but when he does talk, he explains the music of the artist and album. Last week he explained the chronology of Mark Kozelek and his movement from Red House Painters to Sun Kil Moon in-between each song.

Modern stylistic iterations of classic musicians such Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Townes Van Zandt feature prominently on the show. Bright Eyes, Dr. Dog, Iron & Wine and Cat Power are all regular presences in a playlist, as well as bands that deviate from these more digestible contemporary styles and take alternative approaches, such as Sun Kil Moon, The War on Drugs, Hiatus Kaiyote and King Krule.
