Deathly Hallows, Pt. 1

Read about us in The Pioneer!

This week in Whitman College's student-run newspaper, The Pioneer, The Witching Hour was featured as the KWCW radio show of the week! It featured a short bio on the DJs, a history of the show, and some of our favorite tracks. Side note: Pio, we love you, but you need to work on your copy editing skillz. Also, you changed what we submitted. Uncool. If you're on campus, pick up a copy. If not, read it here:

Every Christmas the Weasley family gathers in their living room to listen to the latest hits on the Witching Hour. However, since the mysterious disappearance of the hosts of the Witching Hour from the Wizarding Wireless Network studios in Diagon Alley in 1998, Christmas has not been the same. Yet recent reports of wizard rock on the radio suggest the two hosts are alive and wrockin’. They appear to have relocated to Walla Walla, Washington and have taken the aliases of Mehera “this guitar is a horcrux” Nori and Sara “we r wizards” Rasmussen. Neither Mehera nor Sara are entirely certain how they ended up among muggles, but continue to celebrate the tales of their good friend Harry Potter and his triumph over He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. In January of 2010, Sara and Mehera revived their wizard rock radio programme for the sake of maintaining their wizard culture, and for the musical enjoyment of muggles. Wizard rock is an all-encompassing genre of (w)rock, (w)folk, (w)techno, (w)rap, and lyrics written to the tune of J.K. Rowling. Though Sara and Mehera are far from their home, the Weasleys are pleased to have the show back on the air (and on iTunes) once again.

Wizard Favorites:
“I am a Wizard” by Harry and the Potters
“Teenage Werewolf” by the Remus Lupins
“My Dad is Rich” by Draco and the Malfoys
“Ginny Gets Around” by Gred and Forge
“Voldemort, Peace Off!” by the Basilisk in Your Pasta

Catch The Witching Hour on Tuesdays from 3-4 p.m. on 90.5 FM Walla Walla, streaming online at, or as a podcast on iTunes. Visit our Facebook page or for more!

Look for our upcoming show, called Portus!, next week!

Get your Slytherin on this week with Season 2, Episode 4: Snape Snape Severus Snape.

Since we weren't able to finish playing "Lily (The Sweetest Torture)" on air, I've added it to the end of the show in podcast form. Enjoy, Sara Kittleson!

While you're at it, check out some of the best flash animation on the interwebz, created by Neil Cicierga.

BOTHER BOTHER — a classic.

Sexy Snape — one of the creepiest, most hilarious things you'll ever see.

Wrock Wrenditions!

The latest, the greatest, the newest wizard reinterpretions of muggle favorites. It's Season 2 - Episode 3 - Wrock Wrenditions.

Wrockstravaganza? We wish.

Bad news, dear listeners.

Because of the poor audio quality of last week's wrockstravaganza, we won't have a podcast version for that episode. Fortunately, it was a special show featuring our favorite tunes, so you're not missing out on too many factoids or info on the latest flicks. If you are dying to know what we played, find our group on Facebook or e-mail us at and we'll let you know what songs you should BUY to support wizard rockers.

We'll have this week's show up soon, promise.

Hey guys!

Sara and I are doing a special 2-hour show tonight from 8-10 PM (Pacific Time)! We'll be playing some of our favorite wrock songs and doing some Tales of Beedle the Bard reading. So if you didn't get enough HP in your day yesterday, tune in tonight! (And if you can't tune in tonight, look out for the podcast.)


Back at Hogwarts!

We know you missed us, even if you've been tuning in all summer. But not to worry, we're back with all new, fresh, hip, happenin' wizard rock. So rejoice!

It sure is great to be back at Hogwarts.

love Sara
