ABSTRACT SCIENCE 1000th episode – MONOLAKE – NONCOMPLIANT – CHRISSY [as1000]

abstract science 1000th episode future music chicago radio

It’s finally here, the ABSTRACT SCIENCE 1000th episode archive, our 20 hour takeover of WLUW 88.7fm Chicago celebrating 20 years of broadcasting, which featured special guests MONOLAKE, NONCOMPLIANT (DJ SHIVA) + CHRISSY, alongside all four co-hosts, CHRIS WIDMAN, HENRY SELF, LUKE STOKES + MR JOSHUA. If this is the first time you’ve heard of us, and you’d like to know more about the history of the radio program, you should check out this excellent oral history from the Chicago Reader. Since our first show in 1997, the program’s mantra has been “future music” and the weekly radio show/podcast has largely focused on new releases. The 1000th episode is more of a retrospective, showing casing some of our all-time favorite selections from the past two decades, programmed to both follow the hours of the day (starting at 10am + ending at 6am) and the normal WLUW schedule. Highlights include a live MONOLAKE set recorded in 2007 at the EMPTY BOTTLE (at one of our 10th anniversary parties), a live DJ set from previous guest NONCOMPLIANT (DJ SHIVA) recorded at SMART BAR in June 2017 + finally, a DJ who’s been guesting on our show for over 20 years(!), CHRISSY, with a MURDERBOT set of jungle + UK hardcore recorded live at the WLUW studios. [originally aired 06-07 july 2017 on WLUW 88.7FM Chicago]
