Shows

Thursday 4-7pm

It's a trip back in time to those days in your daddy's pickup truck, with the George Jones, and Waylon Jennings 8-tracks playing; or to the times in your grandmother's kitchen, drinking an RC, eating too many Smarties, Mary Janes, or Tootsie Rolls, with Eddy Arnold or Kitty Wells in the background. Perhaps it's the Hank Jr. or Alabama song that's part of the soundtrack for that special vacation, first baseball game, first car, or first love. Whether the year was 1993, 1973, or 1953; the memories return with Ultimate Twang. The reminiscent sounds of days past from the voices and pickers you loved, along with a few you might have forgotten about. Simply sit back and enjoy, as the gentle breezes of yesterday carry those long-lost sounds and events back to the forefront of your memories.

Friday 7-9pm

You'll hear every kind of blues imaginable from the birth of recorded blues in the 1920's to contemporary artists and everything in between.

So if you like to have fun and boogie, then tune in every Friday from 7-9pm! Boogie on!

Are you looking for great music and hilarious comedy? Good! You’ve come to the right place. Are you looking for someone to hold your hand and whisper sweet nothings in your ear? Too bad, you have taken a wrong turn. Unfortunately, this is now Your Only Option (with Ben).

If you are under the age of 18, chronologically or emotionally, this may not be the show for you...

Friday 11pm-Saturday 2am

Experimental, genre defying music for all ages and from all ages. Pretty much anything is fair game here but there is an emphasis on minimal electronics of the non-dance persuasion as well as post-classical, between-the-cracks rock and some good ol’ time Musique Concrete when I can find it. We’ll also give emphasis to new releases when they come in. Non serious music for the academic listener.

Sunday 9am-12pm
Doctor Severin

Mental Notes seeks Utopian idea of freedom to play a free-form mix of trash, obscure-but-familiar, new or recent discovery, attempts to deliver lyrically engaging music interspersed with warm and friendly bs, non sequiturs and perhaps some illuminating musical history. Every Saturday night Steven sounds the Death Knell of commercial tedium, it's worth missing church for.

Hosted by two musicians and a bartender, I.E. Foul Mouth Jerk, Adam Strange & Handsome Rob, Walk of Shame provides a service to a widely overlooked market...people who wake up in the afternoon.
