Tell Us A Tale
Enjoy two stories from the Tell Us A Tale repertoire each Saturday morning starting at 6:00 a.m., then tune in on Sundays at noon for two hours of stories, tales and tunes collected from six of the seven continents (still working on Antarctica).
Tune in every Saturday morning from 6:30 til 8am for stories and music from the early roots of American Country, Bluegrass and Blues music. We'll hear about the famous acts and the not so famous. From the Carter Family, Uncle Dave Macon and the Monroe Brothers to the less-heard sounds of Kelly Harrell, Washington Phillips, and the Golden Melody Boys. Jug bands, string bands, shape note singers, and even classic country and bluegrass artists from the 50s and 60s are all likely guests to round out the show and start your weekend right. Leave a message or request on our Facebook page (and give us a thumbs up!).
Atlantic Weekly Part I
For twenty years, Atlantic Weekly Part I has been providing listeners with a Saturday morning wake up call of acoustic music. From contemporary singer-songwriters and Americana to the bedrock traditions of bluegrass and old-time string bands, we will have you singing and dancing around the kitchen during your first cup of coffee. Tune in and explore the insightful lyrics and musical diversity that can be found only outside the limits of commercial radio.
Folk Dance Calendar

Atlantic Weekly Part II
The Celtic-flavored second half of Atlantic Weekly is based in Britain and Ireland but with excursions north to Scandinavia and across the channel to the Continent. Hear harps and bagpipes, slow airs and quick jigs, new songs and old ballads.
The tradition of Roots and Culture in the Old Dominion endures. Set upon the solid foundation of bedrock Nyabinghi chants, syncopated Ska and rumbling Rock Steady, your selectors build the framework of the positive Word, Sound and Power of Reggae. Riddim for the Next Generation...
Brother Jimmy "The Truth" and B-Side host the sleaziest, greasiest, trashiest radio show on the airwaves. Get a Garage, Punk, Rockabilly, Soul and Psychedelic fix by listening to The Garage Sale on Saturday afternoons 2pm to 4pm. It's pure psychotic rock radio fury and fun.
Jumpin' on the Bed
Tune in for two hours of musical mayhem as the Monster and David provide you with high-energy Americana to end your Saturday afternoon and start the evening off right. New releases, timely artist appearances and interviews are a staple. You'll hear a blend of rock, folk, country, blues and rockabilly to liven up your Saturday PM. Tune in and start jumpin'!
Bringing you the best of the Grateful Dead and attendant offshoots, descendants, friends, influences and predecessors, from Bob Dylan, New Riders of the Purple Sage, the Jefferson Airplane and Robert Hunter to David Grisman, the Kentucky Colonels and mucho mas. In the strangest of places...
Gather 'Round each Saturday night from 8-9 for an hour of special concerts; both archived and live.

The Groove Tube
For a fist full of funk, enter the Groove Tube. We´ll play funk that´s swinging, rocking, jazzy, new school, old school, international and intergalactic. From Bootsy to the Breakestra, from Fela to Funkadelic, from James Brown to that Daptone sound, you´ll hear it all. So get on up, sway those hips, shake that booty down, and let the Groove Tube be good to your ear hole.
No Soap, Radio!
Two elephants were sitting in a bathtub debating the difference between a duck, when they found out why a motorcycle has no car doors. But we don't care about their conversation, we care about what they're listening to! Tune in and follow along, for a curiouser and curiouser mixture of sound that's not entirely unlike music, right at the cusp of the weekend. With so many genres, we had to make up a few, it may just be the real reason the chicken crossed the road.
