All You Can Eat

All You Can Eat is your home for everything about food. We cover anything and everything that a BU student might need (or not need) to know about food on and near campus. From our delectable discussions to our showtime staple segments, we'll leave you coming back for seconds. In between chatting, we play a selection of unique and quirky songs -- all food-related, of course -- from our database sourced from an online exhibition in 2009 by artist Matt Bua. Got song suggestions? Let us know!

from 10:00pm to 12:00am

Wrong Turn

Every week, we choose a new horror movie, tv show, video game, or book to discuss and play music that relates to the characters, plot, or overall theme.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

Music to Your Ears

The world is on fire (literally and figuratively). Or is it? Music to Your Ears is a radio show centered around the small bits of positivity we can grasp onto in our daily lives. Whether you're a hardcore nihilist or the one person who still holds hope for the future, this show is for you! Each week we try to recognize good things, either in the world or personally, even if the only thing we can latch onto is the really good toast from last Tuesday.

from 6:00am to 8:00am

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. Hosted by DJ Ysabel Wulfing, the show hopes to build a community of inspired earthlings to show some care for our beautiful, one-of-a-kind home. Three twenty-minute 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, Whitney, Fleet Foxes, Rayland Baxter, Babe Rainbow, and more. Tune in to join us in some eco-love!!!

from 8:00am to 10:00am

What's So Funny?

“What’s So Funny?” is a show all about comedy. Your host, Gianna, will dive into various comedy programs and all of their intricacies, including their sketches and bits, their writers, and all of Gianna's (very necessary) takes on them. Most often, the topic of discussion will be episodes of Saturday Night Live, but she will also discuss comedy specials, episodes of sitcoms, and maybe even comedy movies. As for music, when the topic is an episode of Saturday Night Live, you'll get to hear music by the musical guest on that episode and artists similar to them. When she's talking about another show or a movie, she will play songs featured in the program and other songs that fit the theme of it.

from 10:00am to 12:00pm

I Think, Therefore I Jam

This show is for the philosophy girlies. The title is a play on the famous phrase, "I think, therefore I am," by Rene Descartes (father of modern philosophy). Each episode will cover a concept in philosophy or a philosophical question and then play songs that deal with those same ideas. I Think, Therefore I Jam will involve a wide range of music but will focus on songs with profound lyrics---so the genres will be mostly singer-songwriter, folk, art pop with rap and classic rock sprinkled in but will all vary based on theme!

from 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Lore Galore

"Lore Galore" is a show that takes our unnecessary knowledge about media and puts it to good use. Each week, both DJs bring their own lore to the stage and obsess over it while playing their favorite tunes that correspond. Topics of discussion could include Sutton's fascination with The Beatles and Zoë's odd love for Norwegian Black Metal, with music genres ranging from Experimental to New Wave.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

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

WTBU News

WTBU's flagship news broadcast, providing coverage of the issues and stories that matter on-campus, across the country, and around the world.

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 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Listen Up!

Our show is a strategic mix of comedy, talk, and music. Each week we will recap the most prevalent and thought provoking pop culture current events, with a twist, we're super gay! Along with giving our expert opinions and advice, with no credibility whatsoever, on the most recent tiktok drama, celebrity scandals, and everything in between, we strictly play artists from the LGBTQ+ community. We rotate between hilarious comedy and music, often relating the chosen songs to the overall vibe of that particular show. Not only do we bring light to an underrepresented community, we have fun doing it!

from 10:00pm to 12:00am

Nice to Meet You

On Nice to Meet You, we interview random people we don't know. We learn about their interests, passions, and studies. We also play some music of the guest's choice! We get to introduce someone we don't know to listeners as we get to know them ourselves. A profile on a new person every week.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

Radio Reddit

We will read reddit stories of all kinds and react to them. Based on the story each week, we will play music related to it and the hypotheticals that spur in the moment. Anyone who loves a good story will be able to enjoy:)!!

from 6:00am to 8:00am

Let Me Steal Your Playlist

Let Me Steal Your Playlist is a music show where we bring a guest in each week to talk about what they like listening to now, what artists they follow, and what they used to listen to in the past. After each song, we'll pause to talk about why that music speaks to the guest and about any significance it has in their life today.

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

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 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Intermission

"Intermission" will center around movie musicals. Movies turned into musicals: Mean Girls, Waitress, Legally Blonde...etc. Musicals turned into movies: Les-miserable, Into the Woods, Rent..etc. And movie musicals that are completely film-centered around outbreak numbers and spontaneous moments of singing: La La Land, The Greatest Showman, Pitch Perfect,..etc. The best and worst musical numbers in the films vs. the stage or solely portrayed on the stage/in the film will be discussed. Everything will be taken into account from the choreography to the nuances of the actors portraying these iconic roles both on stage and on screen.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

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

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 as we discuss all things life, trending TV, celebrity news and so much more! Plus, you’ll flip out for our tunes, from Taylor Swift to Queen to Noah Kahan, we've got it all.

from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Spotlight

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 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Melanin Matters

Melanin Matters is a variety show focusing on the Black experience at Boston University and beyond. Every 15 minutes we alternate between talk and music. All Black DJs and all Black music. Providing a sense of representation to an underserved and marginalized audience on campus, we focus on the serious news and important events within the local, national, and international Black community; simultaneously, we always make sure to dedicate time to highlighting the positive things to know, which are often overlooked. We also have weekly guests who share their insights and experiences through interviews, advice, or roundtable conversations. And, of course… we make sure to have fun!!

from 10:00pm to 12:00am

Yours, Mine and Ours
Blend of mine and guests music taste, talk about how where they overlap, how they developed the taste they have now, etc.
from 12:00am to 2:00am

Here for the Year

Every week, we only play music released during one specific year. There are no restrictions on genre. For example, if we choose the year 2013, we could play anything from Arctic Monkeys to Paramore to Blake Shelton to Thundercat to Eminem to The National. We will also be discussing pop culture events from whichever year we choose. Any listener or DJ with any music taste will find something for themselves in this show!

from 6:00am to 8:00am

WTBU The Basement

WTBU The Basement is a go-to guide to Boston's DIY, basement, and small-venue shows for the upcoming weekend. Featuring two hours of releases by Boston's small artists of every genre under the CITGO sign, The Basement aims to show off local talent, support small artists, and attract new faces to the vibrant underground music scene. Apart from showcasing that weekend's local talent, we occasionally turn the spotlight onto the artists themselves. Join us for exclusive interviews where we explore their musical inspirations, delve into what they cherish most about live performances, and unravel the unique stories behind their creations. WTBU The Basement isn't just about the beats; it's about the people, the passion, and the pulse of Boston's underground.

from 8:00am to 10:00am

Potluck

There are no rules. Each week will be different from the last. Join us for a wide array of activities, including games ("Guess the Sample", "Two Truths and a Lie" but with music, "Blind Karaoke"), themed events (“Fancy Show”, “Fight Night”), as well as music from all kinds of artists, from Erykah Badu and Sade to LCD Soundsystem and Yo La Tengo.

from 10:00am to 12:00pm

To The Core

On To The Core DJ’s Ethan and Jaya explore and dissect a new “core” subgenre of alternative music, covering which bands shaped the genre, fan favorites, and who's currently fronting the scene. Every week we’ll spend two hours listening to a new subgenre ranging from hardcore, metalcore, skramz, and grindcore, to slowcore, post-punk, and emo. Plus Jaya and Ethan will spend plenty of time gatekeeping, arguing over genre labeling, defending our favorite bands (and the ones we hate), and covering niche band drama that plagues twitter. Listen along as we get to the core of it!

from 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Beyond the Compass

The world is in a state of flux. Political, economic and social conditions are more uncertain than ever. With the rise of extremism, predicting the future is getting more complex.

Beyond the Compass will center primarily on global affairs. We will invite students and professors from different disciplines — politics, economics and sociology — and explore in depth the issues at hand. We hope to examine these topics by discussing trends in domestic politics, foreign policy, the global economy, socio-cultural dynamics and beyond. We will also discuss how the media covers the news and how news organizations influence how we interpret the information. How is the media representing what is happening in the world? News organizations are more influential than ever and affect our understanding of current events by shaping how information is presented and mediating events from distinct perspectives and emphases.

Our show will appeal specifically to students and faculty from diverse backgrounds interested in global issues.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

WTBU's flagship news broadcast, providing coverage of the issues and stories that matter on-campus, across the country, and around the world.

from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

For the Record

Every week on "For the Record" we listen all the way through an album. It may be a hot new release, an album from our childhoods, something celebrating a birthday, or something else entirely. Join us as we chat about the meanings of the tracks, the production, the artist's history, and other background information on each album, plus some bonus songs!

from 8:00pm to 10:00pm

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 10:00pm to 12:00am

Six Degrees

How many steps does it take to get from Simon and Garfunkel to Nicki Minaj? From A Tribe Called Quest to Big Thief? On Six Degrees, we take our listeners on a journey across music history, industry connections, and obscure trivia to show the six degrees of separation between artists across all genres. Join us for other numbers-based segments like One Horse Town (local recommendations), Two Birds One Stone (underrated life hacks) and Seven Minutes in Heaven (things we find heavenly) as we geek out on music, unlikely connections, and all of your new favorite things.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

The Advice Column

Our advice show tackles different themes each week and discusses commonly asked questions about the chosen theme or questions submitted by listeners for our college audience. What’s unique about our show is that we integrate advice with relevant music. We want to take the concept of the newspaper advice column, which inspired us as kids, and make it “multimedia.” Incorporating music into the idea of an advice column realizes something that many people do in their lives: using music to relive a moment from a new perspective.

from 6:00am to 8:00am

Another Little Piece of My Art

Are you looking for the latest in visual arts, culture, and music news? Look no further than Another Little Piece of My Art! Whether it’s the color of the week, a roundup of collabs between our favorite visual artists turned musicians (and musicians turned visual artists), or a discussion of the latest art world gossip (who’s buying, who’s selling, and what’s on their walls) we’re here for you with special guests and color commentary.

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

WTBU Rewind

WTBU Rewind is for the nostalgic adult wishing for that one pre-set station of their youth. It's 70s classic rock, 80s hair metal, early 2000s female artists, and that banger kids bop album all rolled into one. Tune in each week for an entirely new show, with entirely the same hosts. We're sure to fill that void you didn't know was even there.

from 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Trash Talk

Celebrity dating rumors you want to dissect? Album announcements kept a secret? Controversial hot takes from the mouths of Hollywood? On “Trash Talk” with Kenna LaFitte and Andrew DiBiasio we bring the good, the bad, and the ugly of all things pop culture. We’ll discuss movies, music, fashion, and icons all while listening to our favorite hits, especially by those in the storms of celebrity gossip.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

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.

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

WTBU Sports

WTBU's flagship sports broadcast, providing coverage of the Terriers across all campus athletics.

from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

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 8:00pm to 10:00pm

All Too Unwell

Each week on All Too Unwell, we take one song from Taylor Swift’s expansive discography to inspire a new playlist. Whether it be the scorned woman country of “Picture to Burn” or the lovey-dovey pop of “Paper Rings,” we will take you on a rollercoaster of songs that remind us of Ms. Swift’s selected melody. We will go on deep dives into the meanings and lyrics of the original tracks, analyze deep Taylor lore (old relationships, album theories and more), as well as interrogate our fellow co-hosts on specific additions to the playlists. Although the hosts are Swifts first and foremost, they also listen to a wide variety of music, so expect playlists as eclectic in genre as blondie’s discography itself. No Jake Gyllenhaal or John Mayer fans welcome.

from 10:00pm to 12:00am

Spill the K-Tea

Time to listen to some K-tea! The three hilarious DJs will bring you the latest news from the South Korean entertainment world: drama, music, scandal, controversy... We will discuss topics with a knowledgeable and open-minded brain. Yes, we do have brains when it comes to the K-tea!

from 12:00am to 2:00am

Full of Crit

Full of Crit is a brand new yet world-renowned cultural criticism experience starring unofficial, self-endowed, award-winning critics Lauren and Zibby! Between playing our favorite tunes, sometimes surrounding a chosen theme, we’ll critique and gab about the latest developments in news and pop culture, from ridiculous political blunders to silly celebrity antics. We have a variety of weekly segments, including but not limited to “Full of Lit and Full of It,” where we discuss our highs and lows of the week; “Full of Country,” where we honor our “Southern” roots and blind react to a country song; and “Film of Crit,” where we discuss, review, and/or anticipate the latest and upcoming movies. Tune in and join us on our epic, harrowing journey to critique this crazy, unpredictable, amazeballs world we live in!

from 6:00am to 8:00am

Music Telephone

Music Telephone is a musical twist on the popular childhood game, Telephone, where you whisper phrases from person to person and reveal how the final sentence is different from the first. In our show, we start with one song, and respond with a different one that is similar in genre, meaning, lyrics, history, or anything else! Weekly themes could include things like storytelling, heartbreak, hype, current events, or whatever is affecting our lives that week. At the end of the episode, we can reflect on where the music and conversation ended up, as well as how it evolved. As we discuss our choices and jam out, we aim to show the power of communication and connection through music and conversation.

from 8:00am to 10:00am

The Wheel

“The Wheel” is a show about the evolution and cyclical nature of music trends. On our show we will explore the tendency of musicians to take inspiration from and build off of previous ideas. We are interested in showing the range of musical concepts and how different artists can interpret the same basic trend in their own way. Each week will investigate a different topic ranging from artists inspiring other artists, band composition, reinvention of genre, use of instrumentation, and more. We hope to highlight different musicians’ attempt to “reinvent the wheel” by adding their own flair and putting a new spin on pre-existing notions. Segments during talk breaks include The Weekly Wheel—hosts spin a wheel of conversation topics relating to the week’s theme to spark discussion—and our rotating wheel of guests that will weigh in on the subject of the week. The aim is to reach music enjoyers and wheel lovers alike. Our hope is that listeners will hear some familiar favorites while also being exposed to new music in the same vein.

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 movie. 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. Movies we have watched and discussed in the past include City of God, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, Paris Is Burning, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Hereditary, Sorry To Bother You, and Jennifer’s Body.

ISSA VIBE

On “ISSA VIBE” we play a variety of genres and songs including R&B, hip hop, rap, and jazz featuring both new and established artists locally, nationally, and internationally. Every episode has predetermined themes, or “vibes” like: MISTY, SMOOTH, MELLOW, BEACHY, TURN UP, and LOWKEY HIGHKEY which characterize that week’s song selection and topic of conversation.

With these vibes, we discuss new music releases, news from the industry within the genres, diversity in American music and its influence internationally or vice versa, and concerts (focusing on those in Boston and the surrounding areas so our listeners are aware of up and coming/indie or other artists they are fans of). We bring guests on to showcase their perspective of the vibes and discuss that week’s topics as well as connect the vibes to their personal lives, play fun improv games, or ask questions that we come up with ourselves.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Music Therapy

What have you been going through? Would some music help you through it? If so, call in to Music Therapy on WTBU. Each week we hear out the problem of a new anonymous caller. Instead of giving advice, we play them a curated selection of songs related to their situation. Sometimes the best thing we can do is just listen. On Music Therapy, we listen.

Neurogarden

Ambient devotees, this one's for you! We play electronic music fit for study or sleep (or airports, if you're into Eno). Come to relax. Read. Stare at the ceiling, if you like. Another Green World is music-heavy and a bit lighter on the talking, although we love to discuss our song selections and, on occasion, conduct insightful dream analysis. As part of the show, you'll learn how to pronounce "Moog" and bask weekly in the atmospheric sound waves of synth from the sixties to now. Maybe you'll harmonize for Mort Garson's plants. Emerge enlightened, or something like that.

from 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Eclectic Investments

"Eclectic Investments" is a show about eclectic music. Each week the show will have a different theme which dictates what sort of music will be played on that day.
