Something old, something new -- you'll be treated to a little of both by one of KDHX's newest shows, "Sittin' On Top of the World."

If you ever tune in to KDHX sometime between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. Central in the wee hours of Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, you'll hear a smorgasbord of experimental sounds. Psychedelia, drone, lo-fi, freak folk -- any and all could wander through Nathaniel Farrell's "Cure for Pain."
