Franorama 2.0
Thu :: 1 to 4 pm
Fran Fried is a changeling, to put it simply. (You don’t know the half of it, girlfriend!) You never know what she’s gonna do — even she doesn't know what she’s gonna do next. But her M.O. in life has been “Throw everything against the wall and see what sticks.” That applies to her radio shows, too. No matter what era or genre, the one constant to her show is quality. Okay, passion, too. You’re bound to have some fun — and, as Bill Cosby said, if you’re not careful, you might learn something.

Wes, Willie & Friends
Thu :: 6 to 7 pm
Celebrating one of America's great musical treasures, “Wes, Willie & Friends” is a one-hour exploration into the music of Willie Nelson and his contemporaries. Outlaws, them all, Willie and friends not only changed the face of country music but of music in general. Hosted by Wes Hightower, “Wes, Willie & Friends” will prove to be a rollicking good time.

Things That Go Bump in the Night
Thu :: 10 pm to midnight
DJ Schwarz is your host for a journey through rock and electronic styles. The Bump is the Beat!

Doc on the Fly
Fri :: 1 pm to 3 pm
60s-80s progressive rock DJ host Doc Rock revisits the days of no-playlist music programming — whimsically transitioning tunes together … most of the time. It’s just on the fly.

DJ Lotto’s Happy Hour
Fri :: 5 to 7 pm
Kick off your weekend with 2 hours of music goodness. DJ Lotto spins sets that make sense for music lovers. Melodic Rock-n-Roll from all decades is fair game.
