Scandinavian folk classical ghost stories and cod surrealism. All Current music.
Unconventional music in your stereo. Sounds from all the known and unknown beat makers, the heavy bass shakers, the soulful melody players, and conscious rhyme sayers.

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!
Good morning Mr. Phelps. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to listen. From the deepest darkest heart of the mission come the throbbing beats of something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. All for you.
Tidbits - this and that, a little somethin' somethin'. Do that thing. U knowww.
"You asked me how to get out of the finite dimensions when I feel like it. I certainly don't use logic when I do it. Logic's the first thing you have to get rid of."
sickly heavy heart rock, lifted sugar eye pop, pins me to the ground wave, and mirror me your memories twee.
Peace of mind for the stressed...
Progression for the static...
Positivity for the soul...
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!
For true rockers only.
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
the Bear will give you some air!
Psychedelic guitar freakouts, free jazz blowouts, and anything and everything in off-kilter pop, soul, funk. Tune in and join me out in deep leftfield.
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.
"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
The Radio Jane Doe
Hello, my name is Pop...and I am a musical hedonist.
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.
Presented in low-quality stereophonic sound, the Scratchy Vinyl show is the program on KALX where the music will go in one ear and out the other
For the DJ by the DJ, Sergio's show delves into the roots of dance music. He seamlessly melds jazz, funk, disco, house, hip hop and any style with an ear-catching melody, hip-shaking beat and a whole lotta soul into each set. He strives to showcase local house and hip hop artists, regularly bringing in local (or international) guest DJs & musicians to share their style of music with the audience. Dedicated to preserving & paying respect to the vibe of The Loft or Paradise Garage and making you feel like you're at a nightclub dancing your ass off, even if you're in your car.
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.
popcore. dronewave. robot ragas. emotronica. vegetable punk. grime'n'bass. hindi-indie. smooth metal.
Summertime can be scorching hot with guitar jams, humid like some African funk, cool and shady like some country soul or like a dive into a pool of catchy melodies from anywhere in the world. Perfect for your Friday night. Start your weekend off right with Summertime every other Friday, 6:00 to 9:00 PM.
Regular DJ to be announced
When imagination blooms on the bowers of the Gods, the Muse provides the fruits--a la carte or full service. All genres considered (except Muzak).
A manic, sleep-deprived stew of '70s punk, glam, rockabilly, '50s rocknroll, doowop, '60s girl groups, pub rock, garage, punkrocknroll, and whatever else provokes riots on your own personal dance floor.
Glam-a-Rama Metallic Banana - Music for the Mosh Pits, Hootenanny's and Disco Ballrooms of life. Viva Eclectica!
Got'em, if you smoke'm. Pioneering the aural trail with the odd, indie and international to live layering bionic meltdowns. Spreading seeds of sound, far and near - everything you've never heard (or not heard quite like this)! Take the time to smell the weeds . . .
From punk to classical, from Paris to Hong Kong, from noise to polyphony, from the islands of Cape Verde to the island of Alameda, all without leaving the comfort of your frequency.
