Cuppa Joe

Caffeine in hand. Accidental and adventurous. Unstaid and unsettled. Experimental and empirical. Occasionally flustered but always passin' muster. Dammit Jim, I'm a simple country DJ, not a miracle worker! Get your radio-fu here!

Hurricane Lorraine

A hint of funk and a healthy dose of punk rock nostalgia.

Ion The Prize

Peace of mind for the stressed...
Progression for the static...
Positivity for the soul...

Jesse Luscious

What you hear is only most of what you get; requests, mostly of the rockin' kind, are incredibly welcome. It's opinion scattered among caffeinated punk, hip-hop, ska, country, rap, rockabilly and practically anything else thrown at the listeners like so much rotten, yet strange, fruit. Run-on sentences are a way of life!

What Heino making love to a manatee would sound like, only better.  Unless she actually plays Heino in which case it sounds worse than a manatee making love to Heino.

He will sleep 'till noon,
but before it's dark,
he'll play every rockin' tune
this side of Til-den Park.

Kenny has it better
than a millionaire,
if you've got the chops

Lou Guru

Always some classical, a lot of punk, a mixture of anything else weird or funny or mood-of-the-day, plus a lot of very inane commentary. Usually there's something French too.


Rockin' the joint with punk, r&b, garage, rockabilly, soul & jazz.

Majority Whip

"Radio has helped to make people fixated on one particular kind of a sound and one particular kind of a style. And, a lot of people today, since music education is virtually nonexistent in public schools, they don't even know what they've been missing in terms of music from other cultures, music from America from other periods, (and) different styles. You may not like it all, but if you don't even know that it exists, how are you going to make up your mind?" - Frank Zappa

Probono Bonobo

One of the few animals to exhibit tool usage is the Homo Paniscus. Start your week observing the other, lesser-known, common social behavior of this species, spinning small polycarbonite and polyvinyl discs. The ape hits his stride with indie and not-so-indie, pop, rock, and not-so-pop-rock, but also usually ventures down uncommon territory during this show, his study of human musical behavior.

Roscoe 2000

Sex 14s

Wandering the foggy moors of dreamland with only a Victrola to light the way. Where songs about Jesus and Satan intermix with ditties about cheeses and seitan. Tipping sacred cows as we stumble towards a kind of Valhalla where Ish Kabibble shares a table with Subbulakshmi.
