WRIR’s own Cause & Effect show traces the musical roots (influences, off shoots, peers, and followers) of one band or artists every week on Thursdays from 7PM to 9PM. On Thursday, March 8th, 2012, Cause & Effect presents a very special show featuring Luke Jenner, frontman for beloved dance-punks The Rapture. Created exclusively for Cause & Effect, Luke has hand picked a set list highlighting his personal influences through the 14 year history of the band. His set is a shining example of what makes Cause & Effect such a unique and special radio show as well as telling his creative journey through the music of others including his four favorite songs from The Rapture catalog.

Episode Summary: Host Alloy Ben has had a very busy work schedule lately, so Alloy Matt has a go at it by himself for a bit. Remember McCary from last week? Well, he joins Alloy Matt for an interview with Born of Osiris. Alloy Matt talks about his experience at Warped Tour this year and the upcoming (for him anyway) All-Stars Tour, which Born of Osiris is a part of.
