About 10 years ago, two guys named Alec became WHFR DJs. One hosted a show called "The Metallic K.O." and the other "The Dog and Pony Show."
The Alecs became friends, realized they both had an appreciation of weird music, and went to see a lot of live music together.
Alec and Alec decided to co-host an indie-music program called "AA Battery."
Tune in this Sunday at 7pm for the final "AA Battery" show when the Alecs play some of their favorite cuts from past shows.
