Bullseye Debuts This Weekend on WNIJ!

Oct 6, 2012

WNIJ is pleased to announce the addition of a new program to our weekend schedule:  Bullseye!  It debuts this Sunday afternoon at 5pm.

Bullseye is a public radio show about what's good in popular culture. With a keen editorial eye, Bullseye sifts the wheat from the chaff, and brings you hot culture picks, in-depth interviews with the most revered and revolutionary creative people and irreverent original comedy. This weekend, the show features an interview with enigmatic soul singer Syl Johnson.

Bullseye and its host Jesse Thorn have been featured in Time, The New York Times, GQ, The Wall Street Journal, and McSweeney's, which called it "the kind of show people listen to in a more perfect world." Past guests have ranged from writer-director Judd Apatow to soul singer Mavis Staples to comedian Zach Galifianakis to rapper Prodigy of Mobb Deep to Emmy-winning Colbert Report head writer Allison Silverman. Contributors to the show include Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, Thurber Prize-winning writer Simon Rich and the editorial staff of the Onion's AV Club.

Bullseye is equal parts funny and fascinating. Whether you're already plugged in to the culture map, or looking for a signpost, Bullseye will keep you on target.
