Stage Troupe x WTBU

As a collaboration between performing arts group Stage Troupe and WTBU, the show will focus on theater and on the group itself. Through live readings of short scripts, "behind the scenes" looks at the makings of shows from the past couple of years, and discussion of theater happenings in the real world, we hope to give our members an opportunity for low-key commitment over the summer and give listeners a couple of hours each week to learn something new and to reminisce on live theater.

from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

A Little Help From My Friends

A Little Help From My Friends is an advice show where we give (unqualified but awesome) advice, share stories, and talk about anonymous topics and questions sent in by real listeners via our social media. We also have live guests and callers who ask questions and help us give live advice for our listeners. The stories can be awkward, silly, serious, sticky, or otherwise. Our goal is to let people know they aren't alone in whatever they face, through giving advice from our personal experiences. We start with 20 minutes of honest talk/advice followed by 20 minutes of music (of any genre) that we find relates to the topic and possibly comfort the viewer in their need of a friend. This cycle repeats for the rest of the show (with, at most, 3 topics being discussed) until the last 20 minutes of the show, at which point we DJs take turns telling short stories/situations that we are facing this week and finish the show with advice and relevant songs. Each DJ has a different taste in music, so the artists we play can be anything from contemporary pop, to obscure indie, to alternative, to oldies, to folk! We even have special themed shows where we give advice on a specific topic throughout the show, and play music more focused on the theme (for example, in our "Dads" show, we gave advice on what to get your dad for father's day or his birthday among other topics and played music that reminded us of our dads).

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Paint 'er Red

Our show will be devoted to discussing leftist politics, workers rights movements, and the foundational concepts involved in modern socialism. We will also showcase music which is related to these topics - there is a broad array of communist and leftist art which goes unexamined, and we want to uncover these hidden gems! We intend to have fun conversations about history and build a soundtrack to go along with it.

from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Milky Way Radio

Through a mostly music based format, I plan on taking the listeners through all the sounds in the galaxy. As we go through each song, I also plan on breaking them down and discussing anything & everything relevant in the current state of our universe.

from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Earth to Earthlings

Earth to Earthlings is a sustainability-focused radio show that hopes to create a welcoming, lively space for discussing climate change, sustainable lifestyles, and initiatives that spark fire in our souls. Co-hosted by DJs Carlee Campuzano and Sarah Alaimo, the show hopes to build a community of inspired earthlings to show some care for our beautiful, one-of-a-kind home. Two half-hour blocks of spirited conversation paired with some chill jams that connect us to nature creates the perfect formula for a show dedicated to modern hippie culture. Each week has a different climate-focused topic, ranging from sustainable fashion to food systems to wildlife. We play folk music, ‘60s-’70s rock, and alternative, featuring some of our fave artists such as Cat Stevens, Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, Sufjan Stevens, Babe Rainbow, and more. Tune in to join us in some eco-love!!!

from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

FACEPUNCH!!!

At FACEPUNCH!!!, we play experimental music. The show usually takes on that experimental format. Each week we have weird conversations on whatever weird stuff is going on either in the world, on social media, or in our lives. Sometimes we do some kind of comedy bit, which could be improv, cold reading a cartoon script, or making one of our non-STEM majors (badly) interpret a scientific paper of our choice. We like to discuss recent music coming out, shows we’ve recently seen or anything we’re anticipating, and I’m not afraid to rant about a bad Logic Album for 20 minutes.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Trash Talk

Trash Talk is a roundtable talk-show of four beautiful, young, inspired women who talk about everything ranging from trashy moments, our personal lives, pop culture, and the world around us! We talk about television, politics, Broadway, and moments when we deserve to be slammed in a trash can. Each week, we end our show with “Dumper Fire of the Week,” a recurring award for our trashiest DJ of the week. We play music like Hamilton, Ariana Grande, and Hannah Montana, duh.

from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

ISSA VIBE

On “ISSA VIBE” we play a variety of hip hop, rap, RnB, and jazz featuring both new and established artists, nationally and internationally. Every episode has predetermine themes, or “vibes” like: SMOOTH, MELLOW, BEACHY, TURN UP, and LOWKEY HIGHKEY that characterize that week’s song selection. Conversation topics include new music releases, concerts, and news from the industry within the genres, as well as diversity in American music and it’s influence internationally. I have guests on to discuss these topics as well as to just talk about their personal lives and play fun improv games like Sex with Me.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

sadboi hours

sadboi hours channels the energy of life’s worst moments, whether that be crying in Mugar Library, running out of dining points mid-semester, or listening to your roommate playing trumpet at midnight, and provides listeners with an escape from the struggles of college. We explore different genres of sad music and talk about what’s giving us sadboi vibes during the week. So sit back, relax, and get in your bag with us.

from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

ClownTown

“ClownTown” is a show that plays music of many genres, with a main focus on Alternative Rock. Each week DJs Laura, Katie, and Lauren aim to bless the ears of their listeners with songs catered to ridiculous, niche themes (including, but not limited to: “Strictly 2015 Tumblr,” “Tik Tok Songs,” and “Jester’s Choice.”) Between rotations, the DJs will offer lighthearted, funny commentary on the theme and their song choices. Each week DJs will host a “Local Buffoonery” segment where they discuss the stupid, funny, outrageous things that occur at BU, in the news, and in their own lives. Welcome to the circus, WTBU.

from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

More of the Same

DJs pick an album/song/artist of the week they can’t stop jamming to and find music similar to it in sound and style (lead singers that sound the same, bands that use the same writing style or sound the same). This is a recommendation show focused on underground artists (similar to popular titles) worth exploring. We talk about the theme of the week and why we chose the music we did. No specific genre, possibly no taste, and definitely no limits. But we do play what we’re into. Expect rock, alternative, and lots of new music.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm
