Featured shows

Pick It Up!


A weekly plunge into the depths of Ska and Punk Rock where The Mav talks about ska history, terminology, and any random stories that come to mind cuz remember SKA IS NOT DEAD
The Light Within


I plan on exploring consciousness through spoken work, music, guests and interviews. Music will be used the most. Playing CDs from various artists that inspire me.
Time's Arrow


Time's Arrow is without description.
Night Drive


Chill out with some zoomy synths, vibe with some rhythmic bass, or bop out with some beeps and boops. Listen to your favorite music and artists, or find something new. We have the zweems and the whomps that you've been craving. And yes, we speak robot on this show, so if that's for you, sit back and enjoy the ride.
The Friday Spin


Start your Friday off with an eclectic mix sourced from WRPI's own expansive physical media library.
Rocked Out


From new wave to punk, different forays in rock are explored
