Time: Friday 9 p.m.
Host Info: Sawyer J. Hildebrandt (Junior, Life Sciences Communication Major)
What is your show like? One hour of the world’s greatest guitar players. Non-stop, in-your-face shred action. 100% pure awesomeness.
Why should people listen to your show? I’m always trying to find new music for the show to bring to the people, so the show is always fresh & exciting. Plus, it’s pretty much the only radio show in the world dedicated to shred.
How long have you had a show at WSUM? Almost 3 years. I feel old…
What do you do outside of the station? I’m a guitar player (obviously) in the Madison metal band, My Fair Share. I also run a music blog, nightofthelivingshred.net. Other than that, I spend the rest of my time being Program Director here at WSUM.
Favorite Music: Well I’ve been a metal head forever, but I also listen to a lot of jazz fusion and Gypsy Jazz. Django Reinhardt is the shit.
Make-your-own-question: “What are you doing to prepare for the coming zombie apocalypse?”: Watching as many zombie movies as I can to see what not to do, and planning out the optimal location to build my zombie-proof fortress. So far I’ve narrowed it down to an underwater sea lab, or Vilas Hall, because even zombies will get lost in that maze.
