Plea Bargains
from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

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

Whole Lotta Hoopla

Our show is a reflection of our audience. We focus on indie/alternative, but we will play anything and everything. Typically, we take talk breaks every 15-20 minutes, with a half-hour Music News segment in the middle of our slot. We also interview college artists of any genre.

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

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 10:00pm to 12:00am

Dump!

Dump! (Djack’s Untitled Morning Program) is the best way for anyone on BU’s campus or the greater Boston area to perk up their morning. We’ve got everything you need to start your day: talk on the best breakfast & coffee in Boston, our favorite parts of our morning routines, news on what's going on in the world, and crispy smooth AM jams. There would be one main host, DJack, but recurring and one-off guests would be frequent.

from 6:00am to 8:00am

album hour

On album hour we will listen to and discuss some of the most influential and interesting alternative albums from recent decades and the songs and artists inspired by them. On each episode, we will listen to the entirety of one album (or EP) from an artist, discussing various aspects of production, songwriting, and influences of the songs. After we finish listening to the album, we will go on to discuss other artists and songs the band has influenced.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

The BBQ

The BBQ is a weekly talk show focused on everything barbecue— cookouts, Jimmy Buffett, pop culture, corn hole. We interview guests about their ideal barbecue situations. Recurring segments include "Is It BBQ?" and "BBQ Snack Rankings". Mostly, it's a chill talk show with some ~BBQ~ elements thrown in to keep things interesting.

from 12:00pm to 2:00pm

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.

#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 8:00pm to 10:00pm

from 10:00pm to 12:00am

dude, that's so funny!

dude, that’s so funny! is a show centered around the magic of friendship featuring our goofy humors! We will bring either a new friend (someone we recently met) or an old friend (someone we’ve been friends with for a while) on each week and have our listeners get to know them on air. We will all discuss topics surrounding friendship and social life. This can range anywhere from gaining friends, to losing friends, to being in the friend zone, and more. The music we choose will be comprised of both personal picks and music focused on a friendship theme of the day. Additionally, we will have different segments including friendship superlatives and short games.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

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 8:00am to 10:00am

tinytalks

tinytalks is a show of all things tiny! Tiny houses, tiny cats, tiny arts, tiny music, this show will do it all. We exclusively play songs that are under 3 minutes long of a different genre each week, with twee pop, country rock, and folk/indie-rock being the main focus. Between tracks, the host will choose a topic to talk about with a guest -- the topic will be about a tiny object, i.e. tiny houses, tiny food videos, tiny paintings, etc. and discuss why tiny is superior!

from 6:00am to 8:00am

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

Room 717

In Room 717, we listen to one full length album an episode and then random songs related to this artist. On the show, we talk about random things, from what the album is about, random facts, their fans on twitter. It’s like a little 2 hour music detox in our dorm. Any type of music is played, from Ed Sheeran to Tiny Moving Parts to Lauv. Nothing is off limits.

Follow us on Twitter and Instagram @WTBURM717 and Facebook @Room717

from 10:00am to 12:00pm

Do You Know Who You Are?

Do You Know Who You Are? is a show devoted to keeping the legacy of the emo genre. Emo music is emotional, expressive, and vulnerable and has a very rich scene and community across the world. We play tracks from every era and will have weekly themes. Our discussion topics range from emo history, to new releases, to upcoming shows, to important social issues in the music scene.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

640kHz

(: 640kHz is an experimental radio show that will reflect on the idea of college radio and the idea of self. It will feature music, conversation, and a lot of good times. Listen and learn more about sound, your fellow man, living, love, and emptiness. :)

from 12:00pm to 2:00pm

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.

2020 Shōwa Tokyo

The setting: Tokyo late 1970s, a city booming both economically and musically. Walkmans, cars cassette decks and FM stereos ruled the streets while synthesizers and drum machines provided the music. The music evolved with the technology and western influences like R&B, funk and boogie were being broadcast all around the airwaves. This was the birth of citypop, a genre so encompassing yet so specific to its time. Yet citypop laid dormant, relegated to a small footnote in Japan’s history. Until now. Join us on a musical quest to rediscover what citypop was, its artists, and how citypop is still alive and present in today’s online sphere.

from 10:00pm to 12:00am

Underwear Dance Party

Underwear Dance Party is feel good music that is guaranteed to make the audience get up and dance (from wherever they're listening). We'll play throwback jams as well as new electronic pop music, giving the listener a variety of tunes while still following a similar genre. The show is mostly music, with three to four talk breaks ranging from five to ten minutes each. During these breaks, we will discuss the artists that we have played, upcoming concerts, and overall music news.

from 8:00pm to 10:00pm

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

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 6:00am to 8:00am

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.

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 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Pulp Culture

We read and discuss fanfiction about popular tv shows, movies and books. It's part talk radio, part dramatic reading. We also do a semi-deep dive into the fandom on tumblr and twitter to get a better feel for how the fans interact with the show/movie/book.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

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 10:00pm to 12:00am

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 8:00am to 10:00am

L'chaim

Talk with Shereen Cohen Kheradyar, Veronica Harris, Maya Chadda Photobooths, catering, a curfew––Oy vey! L’chaim resurrects the unique and formative adolescent experience of bar and bat mitzvahs. We are bringing up our repressed middle school memories (and possibly yours) while bopping to the music that turned us from girls into women. L’chaim is structured into 30 minutes of talk, 30 minutes of music, 30 minutes of talk, and 30 minutes of music. We play music popular with 12 to 13-year-olds but spanning across different time periods. Hopefully, by the end of the semester, Veronica will be converted from jew(ish) to Jewish.

from 10:00am to 12:00pm

Transmission Impossible

Playing the best of scores, soundtrack and cinema, we play a wide variety of genres related to film and discuss current events relevant to the world of film. Some of our most frequented played movie pieces come from Thor Ragnorak, Wonder Woman, Star Wars (particularly Cantina Band), Sing Street, Lala Land, Dirty Dancing and many other movie classics.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Jalepeño 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 our 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 ranging across many genres such as pop, indie, alternative, rock and folk. The show introduces listeners to top hit songs and superstars from the other side of the globe that they’ve probably never even heard of.

from 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Listen to The Muses
from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Y Tú BU

This is a show that takes into account as many genres of Latin American music as possible. Each week I will chose a different genre and country to showcase. The show will start off with a description of what genres of music are going to be played, background on the artists, etc. then it will be broken down into 20 min segments of music with mic breaks to talk further about the individual songs played.

from 8:00am to 10:00am

808s and Debates

Each week there will be background information given on a specific topic relating to Hip Hop music and artists, proceeded with an argument/debate. The format will be that of a talk show. Every 20-30 minutes will be interrupted with 10-15 minutes of music as a break. Typically there about 3-4 breaks per show.

from 6:00am to 8:00am

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 12:00am to 2:00am

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 10:00am to 12:00pm

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.

from 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Sweet 'n' Spicy
from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Man Eater

Man Eater is a feminist music and political talk show that plays mainly female artists and features discussions on current social and political issues that affect women.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

buggin'

Drawing inspiration from Frank Ocean’s blonded RADIO, buggin’ is a radio show in installments.

Now That's What We Call Music

Now That's What We Call Music? is a talk show where one DJ's music tastes get judged by the others.

basketcat

basketcat is a blend of all things indie and r&b. our DJs spent a semester //abroad// and discovered their shared love for WTBU, music and also the name of their show. between busy schedules, WTBU is our chance to all come together and share what we love. DJ Sophie is our hip-hop/R&B rep who is always bringing in new stuff, DJ Carly is our representative sadgirl who comes in with everything from las aves to harry styles, and DJ Phoebe falls somewhere in between the two. basketcat is an offbeat, chaotic mix of travel stories and pop culture segments that, much like its DJs, has a bit of trouble not going off on a tangent. we all love timothee chalamet and won't shut up about it. sorry in advance.

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 12:00am to 2:00am

310 Radio

310 Radio is the only radio show with actually DJs. With one dj board, we try to bring you the experimental music you didn’t even know you needed in your life. For two hours, we play select choices of electronic (mostly IDM) and genre-neglecting sounds that we mix live in the studio. Equipped with nothing but mics and a DJ Controller, 310 Radio brings you on a continuous 2 hour journey of music, complete with musical interludes, found audio snippets (anything from old vines to YouTube videos) and commentary. We start out discussing the music choices for the day then quickly get into the first 45 minute mix of the day. We then take a short break to talk about anything from a new album to Shia Labeouf’s latest fit. Then we close the show out with another ~50 minute mix. 310 Radio is a place to play music which wouldn’t normally fit alone on a typical radio show playlist.

Up Close and Personal

In Up Close and Personal, hosted by Sarah Cristine Burrola (aka dj sc), I will choose a new theme every week and create a playlist for our listeners that fits that theme. The themes will be a varied range from songs that sound like different colors to the best songs sampled in popular hip-hop songs today. There will also be themes like different songs for each season and songs for road trips, as well as more traditional themes like sad songs and love songs. Other themes will focus on a specific genres or artists, like themes exploring the history of Shoegaze music, Japanese Jazz, or deep cuts from Ariel Pink's discography. I will also have a featured Artist of the Week that is connected to that show's theme; that artist’s music will close each hour block.

Deep Cut Disco Hours

Deep Cut Disco Hour will uncover the lost disco/funk classics from one of the most colorful eras in American pop culture. Lost hits by big names such as Michael Jackson, the Whispers, and smaller names such as Confunkshun, T Connection, GQ, and so many others will be resurrected from forlorn basement LP's and brought into the internet age. I will also share stories from the disco age passed down from my family members who were around to enjoy such a dynamic time. Disco does not suck, and I'm here to prove it!

Addicted to the Soundtrack

We pick two movies each week (one for each hour of the show) and play songs from their soundtrack (ex. La La Land, Garden State, Great Gastby). We play a few songs (3 or 4) then talk about them and share stories/information about the soundtrack, the movie, the actors, the awards etc. And occasionally we have guests who are big fans of the movies and appreciate the music (ex. my dad with Yellow Submarine).

Then we end the show with current music.

2020 Shōwa Tokyo

The setting: Tokyo late 1970s, a city booming both economically and musically. Walkmans, cars cassette decks and FM stereos ruled the streets while synthesizers and drum machines provided the music. The music evolved with the technology and western influences like R&B, funk and boogie were being broadcast all around the airwaves. This was the birth of citypop, a genre so encompassing yet so specific to its time. Yet citypop laid dormant, relegated to a small footnote in Japan’s history. Until now. Join us on a musical quest to rediscover what citypop was, its artists, and how citypop is still alive and present in today’s online sphere.
