World wide weird duo Rural War Room (Donavan Suitt & Byron Werner) is celebrating 10 years of broadcasting and production here in Little Rock and abroad. Our show — RWR Radio on KABF 88.3 FM (10 p.m. Tuesdays or anytime on their website) — features the two of us alternating records in an effort to surprise one another.

Over the years we have discovered and become fans of some rather nutty acts. Each has their place, be it on the radio show, as an artist on Rural War Room Records, or even as a collaborator in the international cyberband directed by Rural War Room. This playlist features clips of some of our favorite artists:
The duo will be DJing Tuesday night at White Water Tavern to celebrate the anniversary. Read our 2010 feature on the radio show here.

Speaking of Guest Mix

  • Guest Mix: Baby Armie

    January 7, 2016
    I fancied myself a music writer at one time, and there's no doubt that has rubbed off on my approach to DJing. When I put together a mix, I like to cover a specific sound, era, scene, region, theme, or mood the way a feature writer might. And this mix is no different. I gathered up some of my favorite—and more accessible—dance tunes of the past year and threw them all in a pot. The resulting product is eclectic and encompasses many genres. 2015 seemed to offer no particular overbearing trend in underground dance music, and I tried to reflect that here. /more/
  • Guest Mix: Amy Garland Angel

    November 10, 2015
    Amy Garland Angel is a songwriter, social worker, mom, wife, community radio d.j. and avid list maker. She started playing guitar and writing songs at the age of nine. As a young girl, she was a regular on Hayride stages and as a teenager, she made her rounds in the Hwy 80 honky tonks of Louisiana with a fake I.D. Garland Angel moved to Arkansas in 1995. During her years in the Natural State, she has become a fixture in the Little Rock music scene and began hosting the weekly Americana-flavored "Backroads" radio show on Little Rock's KABF FM 88.3. /more/
  • Guest Mix: Ten High

    September 24, 2015
    We are Ten High from Fayetteville, a tone-rich sonic mess with nothing to loose. We love getting down and having fun with our buds from all around. We just released our new EP "Cable Vision," and we have lots more music coming. Come to a show. Bring earplugs! /more/
  • Guest Mix: Liquid Skulls

    September 10, 2015
    Liquid Skulls was formed out of cobwebs, boredom, sloppiness, euphoria, joblessness, fleeting moments, liquid curses and lost responsibilities. I wanted a project that had no restrictions, no genre and was open to unplanned experimentation. It is an escape. /more/
  • Guest Mix: Mach Soul

    September 3, 2015
    Greetings! My name is Kaylan Marks, better known as the music producer Mach Soul, and I'm here to share a few sounds with you. I've recently recovered from a broken laptop and at some point, I became addicted to Spotify. So, I've chosen the music streaming service as the medium to share some of the songs that have inspired me and my upcoming works and releases. /more/
  • Guest Mix: Aaron Sarlo

    August 28, 2015
    Hello, friends, well-wishers, and other. Some of you know me from one of my music projects, be it the world-pummeling smart people rock band, The Dangerous Idiots, the balls-out, conceptual thinkpiece, Duckstronaut, or the powerpop wünderband, Techno Squid Eats Parliament. Perhaps you know me as a stand-up comedian, onaccounta I do that, too. Or, maybe you know me from Shoog Radio, the radio show that plays “The best in Arkansas music." I don’t know how you know me. That’s why I had to type all that stuff. /more/
  • Guest Mix: Midwest Caravan

    July 24, 2015
    If I am completely honest with myself, the reasons I listen to rock music are Alicia Silverstone's bellybutton and the Ugly Kid Joe album cover inside the Pizza Hut jukebox. I only know how to write basically one type of song, and the songs on this playlist were either crucial in that development, or they have recently inspired me to keep writing. I listen to an unhealthy amount of black metal these days, but I figured no one would want to hear that garbage (hit me up if you want that mix!). /more/
  • Guest Mix: Goon des Garcons

    December 15, 2014
    I think I was supposed to have an introduction here but i'm gonna just skip all that and let you guys get to the music.. Here's a list of some of the songs I listen to on my day2day. /more/
  • Guest Mix: Jeremy Brasher

    December 8, 2014
    Like most folks I know around here, I am really influenced by and enthusiastic about all sorts of music. From electro and house, to reggae and dub, golden age hip hop, 80's EBM, soul, any heavy metal that references the devil, gamelan music, equestrian jazz, hardcore whale songs, machinery noises, you name it, if it's good I'm into it. /more/
  • Guest Mix: Sarah Stricklin

    December 1, 2014
    It's safe to assume that most people (all people) are, to some extent, preoccupied with being cool. I can say that, without a doubt, it is much harder to ignore the impulse to attain "cool" after people have told you that they think that you are cool. /more/
