Peel Slowly And See

Virginia Plain

Sunday 4PM-6PM

A radio show for Factory Girls, cool freaks, art school dropouts, sleepy dreamers, distortion junkies, and other eclectic audiophiles! Peel Slowly & See is a multi-genre exploration of music influenced by the sonic grandparents of alternative music, The Velvet Underground. Listen in every other Sunday from 4 - 6pm for a two-hour tour through five decades of the post-VU inspiration, ranging from household chart blasters to the absurd and the vulgar.
