Songs of Safety and Manners, 8-11:00 pm
What a BIG month for SONGS OF SAFETY AND MANNERS! First of all, we’ll be raising money, so DJ BOY will be joining me in the studio for fun and frolic…She always ups the ante.
DROIDS ATTACK will be in for the WORLD PREMIERE of their new album of work: SCI-FI OR DIE! (Riff Reaper Records) and to chat about their RELEASE PARTY on March 10th at the High Noon Saloon, the road to crushing riffs, and puppies.
Then at 10 pm, THE FINE CONSTANT will take over the airwaves for a full hour. What a year! After a cd, two tours, and new stuff in the works, who knows what to expect from these artful metal wizards. Been looking forward to this for a while!

And we can’t wait for Saturday, April 2nd and the first ever
Did you go to your Prom, or was it not your scene at the time? If you did go, whether you loved or hated it, would you like a do-over? Now, here’s your chance to go to a cool, far-out prom with your groovy adult friends and family!
WORT is celebrating its 40th anniversary—which YOU make possible—with the WORT People’s Prom. We’re going back to our first year of broadcasting, 1975, and inviting you to bask in the music, dances, and fashion of that time.
Where and when: East Side Club, Capitol Room, Saturday, April 2, 8pm until ???
The Capitol Room has a full wall of windows facing Lake Monona and the downtown Madison skyline.
Dress code: whatever you want, but 70s fashion is preferred. Jeans and a tie-dyed t-shirt work, as does a polyester leisure suit, platforms and a maxi dress, tuxedo, strappy gown, you name it. There will be a “Best 1975 Costume” contest, with the two winners named Queen and King of the prom, so get your sparkle on!
Music: We’ve reserved the very best 70s dance band in the world, VO5. We wouldn’t hold a 70s prom without them. Plus, WORT DJs will be rocking the dance floor, while dance instructors teach (re-teach?) us The Hustle and The Electric Slide. We’re going on a party ride!
We will also be honoring the only host to be with WORT since 1975, Rockin’ John McDonald, with a Rockin’ John impersonation contest. So listen to Rockin’ John on I Like it Like That, Saturdays, 6–8 pm, and hone your very best impression, while enjoying great 50s and 60s rock’n’roll.
Tickets are $40 each and include admission, one Ballroom Blitz (the prom specialty drink), and an evening of the most fun you’ve had in years! Purchase tickets online at wortfm.org or call (608) 256-2001. Space is limited; get your tickets before they’re gone!
Names will be added to the WORT guest list.
