After Dark

After Dark is a lighthearted show about crime, the paranormal, and the like. Each week we choose a topic and research it on the spot to explore and create our own theories. We alternate 20 minutes of music (relatively) related to our topic for the week with 20 minutes of going over the story, theories, and anecdotes. Banter is both encouraged and expected. Let's get weird!

from 8:00pm to 10:00pm

WTBU News
from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Sample City

Sample City explores the art of sampling that many hip-hop, rap, and electronic artists use in their music. The song being sampled would play first, followed by the song that is sampling the track. Talk breaks would discuss the music and how samples give a deeper look into what kinds of music artists gain inspiration from. Breaks would be short to keep the emphasis on the music, but would have an element of humor to keep the listener from tuning out.

from 10:00pm to 12:00am

Throwback

Throwback’s hosts Vickie and Sana will do a deep dive into 2000s pop culture - everything from movies to music, fashion, and celebrity couples (including why Sana thinks Zac and Vanessa are meant to be). Alternating between blocks of discussion and music breaks, each week we’ll talk about a different movie from the 2000s and topics like our favorite childhood fashion trends and our favorite albums to play on our MP3 players. We’ll play your favorite late-90s and 2000s artists like Avril Lavigne, The Strokes, Paramore, Gorillaz, Britney Spears, and more.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

MCI @ BUITM

The Minority Connection Intiative’s (MCI) mission is to build engaging and lasting relationships between minority students, faculty, and staff to provide support and unity within the Boston University community. For years we have done this by facilitating a variety of events tailored to the very people we aim to serve. Some of these events include: a Students of Color Welcome Reception, Empowered Women’s Brunch, and a First-generation Cafe con Leche. But, we at MCI believe that we could expand our scope and further serve the greater Boston University community through the medium of radio. Our goals for MCI at WTBU would be: create a safe space for candid, creative, and honest conversations about dynamic cultural experiences, the latest current events, and how they may be affecting those identifying as minorities; build new connections, while continuing to develop existing ones between minority communities and allies alike within the Boston University community and beyond; and lastly, facilitate impactful evaluations of the current Boston University experience with aims to improve campus life for the entirety of Boston University’s student and faculty body. MCI plans to accomplish the aforementioned goals by orienting weekly episodes around topics like: the undergraduate/graduate application process as a minority student, codeswitching, LGBT Culture, Queer POC culture at Boston University, toxic masculinity in minority communities, harmful and helpful “allyship”, and a plethora more. We at MCI plan to bring in members of the Boston University community to speak on their personal experiences with such topics. As well as, university professors who specialize in coinciding areas of research to bring forth a scholarly perspective whenever possible.

from 10:00am to 12:00pm

For the Record

On "For the Record," we will do a deep dive on an album meaningful to us each week ranging in genres from pop to alternative to indie to whatever peaks our interest. We'll chat about the artist's journey, how the songs flow together, our personal relationship to the music and the secret meanings hidden in every song. Listening along to the album as we chat, we'll tie in interviews, social media, and music video references to give a deep background on how the album came to be. We'll also bring up similar lesser known artists that we think listeners will enjoy.

from 8:00am to 10:00am

Left of the Dial

Two hours of new independent releases by emerging local and underground artists, with some reissues. Mostly underground rock, with some punk/garage, rpm, hip-hop, experimental, and other eclectic genres. The majority of musical selections drawn from WTBU's current rotation, curated by the WTBU music directors. Tune in Mondays through Thursdays from 4-6pm for sweet new jams, artist interviews, in-studio performances, and some ticket giveaways.

from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Speak No Evil

Every week on Speak No Evil we take an artist who you probably haven’t heard of, or one who you haven’t heard much about, and dive deep into their artistry, history, and influence to provide an insight into music. Music is played when it needs to be played and people talk when they need to talk, that being said each show is meticulously planned and tailored to the subject matter. On Speak No Evil our goal is to broaden your horizons and give you a greater appreciation for the music that doesn’t always make the charts. We feature a number of special guests ranging from professional musicians to fanpage owners to filmmakers.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Stranger Sings

Every episode, we choose a genre, decade, or popular artist, and then comedically analyze songs from that genre or artist, with zero credibility whatsoever. We start off every show with a famous misheard song lyric, and then alternate between 20 minutes of music and 20 minutes of song analysis. There will be two different songs analyzed per episode. Even though every show will feature a different time period, genre, or artist, all the songs played will be recognizable classics.

from 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Listen to The Muses

Do you ever wonder what your favorite musicians might have been listening to while creating their greatest masterpieces? On Listen to the Muses, we imagine what kinds of music would be on playlists made by artists from Frank Ocean to Amy Winehouse to David Bowie. We play songs that we think could have inspired any of these artists, and tracks by contemporary musicians that we think were influenced by said artists. During breaks we discuss the process of choosing the muses to be on each week’s playlist, a little bit about the artist’s history, and of course, we occasionally dish out the Gospel Truth about any relevant hot takes.

from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Seaworld Slumber Party

Seaworld Slumber Party is the silliest, sassiest, sweetest show in the sea! Get a front row seat to the newest generation of SWSP (and one old senior!) as we discuss all things ghosts, celebrity crushes, Tik Toks and so much more! Plus, you’ll flip out for our tunes, from teenage Jonas Brothers to Kim Petras and everything in between!

from 10:00pm to 12:00am

Whole Lotta Hoopla
from 8:00am to 10:00am

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 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Ladies of History
from 10:00am to 12:00pm

WTF BU

Our show is a talk show and a music show. From show to show we will be talking about various topics which can range from a top ten countdown of great memes recently that we have seen, to a review of a recent movie. We also plan on talking about talk about campus life and current events at BU. A list of adjectives that could be used to describe the show: eclectic, unique, metaphysical, philosophical. We will also spotlight original songs/tracks/music created by BU students.

from 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Jalapeño Peppers

Jalapeño Peppers gives you a taste of what the international life at Boston University is like. Students from various places in the world come and share their funny, embarrassing, and insightful stories and experiences with three international DJs. Global news is shared and current issues are addressed. A majority of the show is dedicated to playing music from around the world across all genres with a focus on pop, indie and alternative artists. The show introduces listeners to top charting songs and celebrated musicians that they’ve probably never even heard of. It is the first international music show founded at WTBU and has been on air for almost three years.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

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 6:00pm to 8:00pm

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 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Unsolicited Information From Unqualified Individuals

Do you know a lot about a little? Or maybe a little about a lot? Do you want to arm yourself with just enough knowledge about everything in the world that it is not only statistically improbable, but realistically impossible for you to ever lose an argument again? Do you just wanna talk about your opinions? Unsolicited Information from Unqualified Individuals is the place for the debaters, the trivia winners, and professional make-stuff-uppers. Come talk with us about things you think you know about, the things you know just enough about, or things you have no clue about at all.

from 8:00pm to 10:00pm

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 10:00pm to 12:00am

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 10:00am to 12:00pm

Wild Youth

Wild Youth is an indie show, playing diverse subgenres within the indie genre ranging from pop to R&B to folk. We highlight new and upcoming artists (many local to the Boston area) and often have themed shows for Halloween, Christmas, the best of 2017, and Valentine’s Day (‘He Loves Me Not’ version), to name a few. Tune in to hear dank beats and fresh takes each week from DJ Rosé.

from 8:00am to 10:00am

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 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Locals Only

Locals Only focuses on getting the word out about local music, arts and entertainment in Boston. It's also a hub to build and connect with local talent. We feature one local artist every week and provide information on upcoming gigs and releases. We hope to really show our audience what Boston’s music scene has to offer.

Please Take My Mixtape

The show consists of a college-themed “mixtape.” Examples include “I took a philosophy class that one time" and “Why does my floor smell weird?” There is a 20 minute talk break about school, music, entertainment news, etc.

from 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Del Camino

Our show is called "Del Camino" which means "Of the way" or "Of the road" in Spanish. This can mean many things like the journey and cross-roads of life. The title of this show represents the co-hosts' shared love of different subjects, languages, philosophy ("The Way" is also an ancient Chinese philosophy called the "Dao"), social issues, and the exploration of the meaning of life. Each week the show will have a different theme and guest.


Our guests will range from professors to friends. We want to bring in anyone and everyone to discuss topics like "what is creativity?", to examining the influence nostalgia has on our music taste, to comparing visual arts (like album covers and music videos) to music, to asking "what is a soul?", to any hot takes our guest has, and so much more.


The themes will fluctuate depending on any news coming out at the time of the show or just topics that our guests are passionate about. The music that we play will attempt to relate to the subject matter of each show. Each episode will fluctuate between speaking and music playing. Check us out every Saturday 8-10am!

from 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Tea Time

Tea Time is a show that recaps each week through the lens of a type of tea which relates best to the overall mood of each week. We will discuss the 'Tea of the Week' which will include celebrity gossip, movie news, and something BU-related. Our segments include; Tea (mood) of the Week, Fun Facts with Katie, and The Tea. The music we'll play will depend on what the Tea of the week is.

from 8:00am to 10:00am

Syllababble

We know a syllable is the smallest finite unit of sound that can be used to communicate, but we also know that language has endless possibilities when sounds come together. Poetry challenges the limits of language and changes how its listeners move through life. Syllababble is a weekly poetry and music show for poetry lovers and haters alike. It’s a place to catch your breath in the company of local and global, new and old poetry, coupled with music that ranges from indie rnb to jazz rap to moody folk. Here’s to tinkering with words more often and dancing all the time.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

#illuminaticonfirmed

#illuminaticonfirmed is a talk show that discusses conspiracy theories and all things unknown, including the Illuminati, the lizards that run the government, ghosts, curses, the occult, and Elon Musk. In addition to these discussions, we perform on-air interviews and seances and everything in between. In between our talk segments we will play thematically appropriate music (folk, synthpop, conscious hip hop, soft rock, and ASMR). Tune in. Get woke.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Unverified

Go piss girl, one does not simply, and minions, OH MY! From memes, streams and everything in between Unverified explores present, past, and future internet trends. We will ask, and hopefully answer, what was 2010’s hold on the mustache graphic? Where is Alex from Target? How has TikTok affected the music industry? What emerging platforms are small content creatures venturing towards? The music accompanying each episode will correlate to the time period surrounding the specific internet trends explored. Unverified navigates how the internet influences our day-to-day life and the possibilities it presents for creators. The structure of Unverified is thirty minutes talk, thirty minute music; repeat. Dipped in nostalgia and deep fried, just like our memes, Unverified is due for some Ligma… “What’s ligma?”...

from 12:00pm to 2:00pm

The Morning After

The Morning After is our way of recuperating after a busy week and even busier weekend. Join us for 2 hours of music and guests ranging from our closest friends to our loosest acquaintances.

from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Live From the Practice Room

At Live From the Practice Room we explore classical music and with the people who love it. Each week, a classical music-loving guest picks a piece to spotlight. We first listen to the piece and then talk about it, often having researched previously to provide our listeners with plenty of interesting information. DJ Claudia and her guest also explore each other's paths and relationships to classical music and music making as a whole. If time allows at the end of the show, we play music that relates to the conversation and the spotlighted piece.

from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

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 10:00pm to 12:00am

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 8:00pm to 10:00pm

2 Reel

2 Reel explores the relationship between film and music. A focus is put on certain themes from the film and the songs that are selected relate to them. The music is just as important as the film. The first talk segment of the show consists of the DJs catching up those who may have never seen the film by giving information about the year it was made, director, main characters, and main conflicts. The rest of the talk breaks consist of the DJs discussing the songs they selected and how they relate to the film.

from 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Subtle Asian Terriers

Subtle Asian Terriers is a show dedicated to celebrating BU’s Asian American and Pacific Islander community. Our goal is to connect AAPI students, faculty and organizations with each other through highlighting the rich cultural diversity within our community. Join us each week as we feature different members from across BU and Boston to tell their story and share some of their favorite tunes!

On Spotlight, we highlight a musician every week and play our faves of theirs, as well as tunes that may have inspired their work or are influenced by it. We introduce the artist at the beginning, then alternate between 20-minute music blocks and talk breaks discussing the artist and introducing them to the audience. We try to balance between famous artists and our less well-known faves.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

sad snails

sad snails is WTBU's love-letter to all incarnations of emo music. Sparkle punk, bummer pop, midwest revival, and anything else with an emo kick has a home at sad snails where we play emo from the late '90s to today. Listen in each week as we geek out over heartfelt lyrics, twinkly guitar riffs, and what's happening in the scene!

from 10:00pm to 12:00am

London Calling

Grab your cup of tea and come join Audrey and Danielle for a chat about our good mates from across the pond. Each week we will discuss topics regarding all things British: royal family drama, the newest developments about Brexit, the best Beatles album, our favorite Downton Abbey characters, European football, and more. On this show anything goes, but above all, God save the Queen.

from 8:00am to 10:00am

BU in the Morning

BU in the Morning is WTBU's signature talk show, airing Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10am-12pm. BUITM also includes round table discussions and interviews with guests.

from 10:00am to 12:00pm

Leap Year

Leap Year is an exploration of genres over the years. Each show, we will select a year and play songs that were released that year. During talking breaks, we focus on the general and musical history of the year. We will discuss all things pop-culture such as fads, bands forming/breaking up, albums released, and iconic live music events. Listeners will likely recognize most of the songs, but should expect to be surprised by a few underrated ones. It will also be fun to learn that some of their favorite songs came out at the same time as others!

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 12:00pm to 2:00pm

What Would You Play?

What Would You Play? is a talk show where the DJ's insert themselves into novel, random situations every week (you get a tattoo and your parents find out, you’re DJing your cousin's whack Bar Mitzvah, etc.) and curate a playlist that would serve as the soundtrack for that scene in a movie. Each DJ will talk about what they would do in the proposed scenario and why they would play the music they chose. If something extremely wild were to happen to one of us, we'd discuss that, and there is the possibility of bringing in friends as guests if their story is unique enough to merit air time.

from 8:00pm to 10:00pm

we're not really strangers

we’re not really strangers is a radio show that invites listeners to explore the link between music and memory. From week to week, episode themes will vary in mood and focus on a specific memory or situation, such as moving out of your childhood bedroom or developing feelings for someone. Our episodes are more than just “happy” or “sad” or “angry” playlists— we want to explore universal experiences and the power that we have as listeners to form a connection between music and retrospection. Each episode begins with an explanation of that week’s theme, and talk breaks throughout the show vary from prepared personal narratives to readings of original or famous literary works. We will also welcome guests and listeners to contribute their own memories, works of literature, reading suggestions, and song requests. Ultimately, our goal is to use music as a way to capture a specific moment in time and space, and we hope that these songs and stories will help our listeners realize just how shared our experiences are.

from 8:00am to 10:00am

Subtle Asian Terriers

Subtle Asian Terriers is a show dedicated to celebrating BU’s Asian American and Pacific Islander community. Our goal is to connect AAPI students, faculty and organizations with each other through highlighting the rich cultural diversity within our community. Join us each week as we feature different members from across BU and Boston to tell their story and share some of their favorite tunes!

from 10:00pm to 12:00am

Rabbit Hole

Rabbit Hole offers a glimpse into what music the strangers of the internet are recommending. In the not-so-distant past, the only way to find music was in real life—now, anyone and everyone can (but not necessarily will) have their opinions heard! Every week, we curate a playlist from what people have posted about on Tumblr, Reddit, Instagram, YouTube, and more. We also discuss the music we’ve enjoyed and the “rabbit holes” we’ve gone down in the past week. And, of course, we’ll be taking requests!

Alphabet Soup

Alphabet Soup’s hosts Ali Harrison and Maria Mavrogenes will be giving listeners a weekly dose of pop culture and Alternative music. The show header will be New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle,” which perfectly replicates the funky and eclectic vibe of the show. Although the show will mainly be about Alternative music, the hosts will also discuss movies and television shows currently airing. The hosts will talk about songs to “recycle” and ones to take out of “recycling.” The action of “recycling” songs is about a song or album the hosts feel they no longer can play in their daily rotation while taking it out of recycling will be songs we have rediscovered. There will also be a game of Scrabble to pick what songs or topics that will be discussed in the show. The hosts also plan to give their opinions/debate current events and phenomena in their segment, Coast to Coast (Ali represents Jersey and Maria represents California). Similarly, they plan to give their listeners the ABC’s pop culture news for that week. Each episode will end with a “Soup of the Week” for a person, movement, or group of people who are simply doing the most for the world at the moment.

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 10:00am to 12:00pm
