Eclectic and enthusiastic listening to get you through your commute.
Jangly guitars washed in reverb; jazzy noodlings and the racket of horns; sensual, soulful vocals from a 45” from yesteryear; grimy dance blast beats recorded from a basement on the other side of town; earthy, folky meanderings written in a cabin; and musical traditions from any culture imaginable. There’s no telling how every show will be. Tune in for surprises.

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!

Deep Mission

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.

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!

Kendra K

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!

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.

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.

Sara & Guillaume

Get the party going on your Saturday evening with a blend of dance music, art/avant-garde rock, and French artists, new and old.

Scratchy Vinyl

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.

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.

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. Perfect for Sunday brunch or weekend projects. Start your week off right with Summertime all year long.
