IU president to play his favorite rock songs as DJ
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana University President Michael McRobbie says he'll be ready to rock when he takes to the airwaves next week for his second stint as a radio disc jockey.
Last April, McRobbie co-hosted a jazz program on Bloomington's public radio station.
But on March 5, he'll be the solo host of a 90-minute WFIU program devoted to his favorite rock 'n roll records from his college days.
McRobbie plans to spin tunes from The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix and other American and UK acts.
He says all of his selections will be live recordings "to give listeners a sense of the energy, power and musicianship of all these great groups and artists at their peak."
