Listening behind bars: WKNC's "Penitentiary Rock"

Humans are fundamentally social creatures who long to communicate, and that instinct doesn't disappear when they're locked away. Instead, that urge to be heard might manifest in unusual or unexpected ways -- writing request letters to a college radio station's weekly request show, say, in hopes your letter will be read over the air.

Thus we have "Penitentiary Rock," Friday nights on NC State's WKNC (88.1-FM) with deejay "Uncle Paul," which is a fascinating little corner of the Triangle radio universe. Take a look at the story in Sunday's paper, so you'll have a better idea what you'll hear if you tune in the show next Friday night.
