Of tonight’s all-new broadcast of “Rock It Properly” (Sunday, June 12), DJ Darla Bea writes: “According to French filmmaker Claude Chabrol, ‘There are no waves, only the ocean!’ Tonight on Santa Barbara’s School of Rock, we share a lesson on Nouvelle Vague to No Wave and Beyond!
Later next month, July 14, is Bastille Day — La Fête Nationale. Join me, DJ Darla Bea, as tonight’s lesson will follow a ‘Tour de France,” tracing the unfurling of French New Wave music and ideas (especially during the 1970s) through to the No Wave scene of Manhattan’s avant garde music and arts scene of the late 1970s and to the UK dance- and post-punk revivalism.
From Plastic Bertrand to Television, The Fall to Savages. Get ready to Rock Out!”
“Rock It Properly” airs on Sundays in the spring from 8-10pm PDT.
