Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields guest DJs at 11 pm.
In 1989, Merritt formed the Magnetic Fields in Boston with drummer and manager Claudia Gonson. More often than not the sole player, producer, and arranger on each track, he released numerous records under the name, including 1999's epic three-disc set 69 Love Songs. He's also released material under the names the 6ths, the Future Bible Heroes, and the Gothic Archies. Distortion is the new album from Magnetic Fields on Nonesuch Records.
