RIP Felipito Palacios

Last night, WUSB lost one of our original broadcasters and a dear friend. Felipito Palacios was the host of Onda Nueva, the king of Brentwood’s Puerto Rican Day Parade, an advocate for justice, a cornerstone of Long Island’s Salsa community, and the source of the warmest hugs. He inspired so many of those who volunteer at this station with his passion and support and injected so much energy into our studio walls with his jubilant live sets and hearty laugh. Our radio family is heartbroken and numb; it is thankful for the time we got to spend with this extraordinary man. WUSB is committed to celebrating Felipito’s legacy and we will be sharing our memories and his music in a more formal way both on and off air in the days and weeks to come. We encourage all the community leaders, musicians, and listeners who got a chance to spend some time with him to do the same.

The End of America in WUSB's Sunday Street Series at the Long Island Museum

Sunday, February 25th, 3 PM

The End of America is a band of friends, singers and travelers who blend three-part harmony with rock and Americana. The Philadelphia-based outfit masters a style that resonates with fans of Ryan Adams, CSNY and Dawes. Taking their name from a phrase in On The Road, the landmark novel by Jack Kerouac, this trio has garnered critical praise and a very active fan base. Immediately after their performance at the Fiddle & Folk Festival at Benner’s farm in September, we decided we had to have them play the Sunday Street Series.

All front men of previous bands, Brendon Thomas, James Downes and Trevor Leonard met on tour in 2005. They went on to form a trio that highlights their vocal chemistry and captures the raw honesty of their performances. EOA recently released their acclaimed debut LP (self-titled), a follow-up to their previous EPs, Shakey and Steep Bay. With the album released, the band is gearing up for a full year of touring. Anyone who has seen TEOA can attest to their great songs and stage presence. Plan to hear great original songs as well as carefully-chosen covers of songs showcasing their powerful harmonies.



Advance sale tickets are $18 at www.sundaystreet.org through Friday February 23rd, with tickets at the door on the day of the show for $23 (cash only)
