Vocalo On WBEZ Ep. 100 - Life and Legacy of Frankie Knuckles
In this episode we’re going to be doing things a bit differently. We’re still going to bring you music, stories and conversations but they are all going to be focused on the life and legacy of the Godfather of House music - Frankie Knuckles, who recently passed away at the age of 59. Tune in to hear Chicago DJ Jesse De La Pena talk about Frankie’s impact on dance music, then hear his conversation with the man himself and finally we close the show with a special mix from Mr. Knuckles.
Vocalo on WBEZ Ep. 79 - Quest for the Best DJ Special
We’ve got something special for you in this one. As you know Vocalo brings you some of the best music from all over Chicago and the world. But we also highlight those wax wielding wizards that help make music so popular - the DJs. Usually on this show you’d hear a mix from a local DJ in the 2nd hour of Vocalo on WBEZ, but this time we’re doing it a little different. You will hear mixes throughout the whole show. Multiple Mixes… The mixes included in this show are some of the Finalists in Vocalo’s 2013 Quest for the Best DJ Competition. So tune in and enjoy the ride!
