The Jazz Messenger
The depth, diversity and often contrasting ideas of jazz & blues programming is reverently represented each Monday morning with an emphasis on hard bop, modern, soul jazz and scrapyard blues, as well as a sampling of current releases and reissues. Brian invites you to take a full, deep breath and begin your week on the downbeat with one hundred twenty minutes of hedonic tones, jazz classics, featured artists and organized chaos.
From the Dixie-fried sounds of the Southern soul centers of Muscle Shoals, Memphis, New Orleans and Shreveport to the Uptown Rhythm and Blues shots from the Northern cities of Chicago, Detroit, New York and Philadelphia, Rum Cove puts you in a Situation that is Sooo Soulful!
The Broadcasting System
It's about getting into it. Lightning Bolt gets into it, and so do Tony Conrad and Stereolab. Ralph Peer recorded Jimmie Rogers and the Carter Family getting into it in Bristol. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is all about it. They get into it in the forests of Bali and they surf slack-keyed on it in Hawaii. It's called transport, and only music - every kind of music - does it for me. How about you? Two hours spent deep in it, with Tyler.
Back Up and Push
Back Up and Push! Every Monday afternoon from 4-6 pm Sandy and Annette look back at Bluegrass and Old Time tunes of yesteryear, and push forward to the music of today and tomorrow. Along with traditional Bluegrass and Old Time, we?ll throw in some Folk, Local Favorites, plenty of Live In-studio performances, and the latest news of festivals and other venues for live music. So buckle up for the ride on Monday afternoons from 4-6 with the best picking and strumming around on Back Up and Push!

The Early Music Show
Journey back through eight centuries before the time of J. S. Bach with the first-millennium troubadours and the meditative, sacred music of Hildegard; the sublime motets of Josquin and the foot-tapping dances of Praetorius; the rich English anthems of William Byrd, and much more.
The broad range of that modern music we call jazz is all subject to exploration. Expect a sampling of classic jazz, post-bop, standards, contemporary jazz, and new releases with a smattering of avant-garde and even electronica. Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue may all be found on Anything Goes .
Electrical noises. Shouting. Classic indie rock. Rap. Oldies. Singing saws. Country dubstep. Dad rock. Atonal blues. Freak folk. Garage. Proto-punk. Post-punk. Psych-punk. Holy Money and Scaroline can never decide what they like the most. There's no high like this.
