A Scanner Darkly,” Fridays 2:30-3:30 p.m. Alex Dinwiddie aka "Kid A" says it’s an “eclectic mix of music spanning the generational gap.  From the psychedelic sounds of an analogue drone to the digital spectrum of 'the heavy. If it sounds good, I'll play it!”

Dynamics,” Wednesdays 11:30-noon. A mix of music from local high-school student Mina Alali.

“Harold’s Chicken,” Fridays 10-11 a.m. Nicholas Glass and Michael Mulholland bring you “everything from Roy Ayers to Frank Zappa, jazz, rock, hip hop, Afrobeat, etc.”

Unfortunate,” Tuesdays 3-4 p.m., features two more high-school students, Jake Kelly and Will Forkin. The show features a wide variety of recorded music from many different cultures, time periods and genres, as well as interviews and live performances by local youth who have an interest or talent in any type of music.

Vee’s Beats,” Wednesdays from 2-3 p.m. Vee Shanti returns to the airwaves with her carefully cultivated collection of electronic and world beats.
