WTBU News
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

Moshpit

Mosh Pit features music from all sub genres of rock and metal such as punk, hardcore, and all things heavy. The purpose of Mosh Pit is to showcase a wide variety of heavier music and to promote the Boston/Worcester punk and metal scenes. The show will hopefully be able to feature local artists from the scene to come on and talk about their music (I have a lot of Berklee connections so this won’t be hard to get people on the show). For the format, the show will have periods of music as well as periods of discussion about the music and the artists and any upcoming shows they might have in the area.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

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 8:00pm to 10:00pm

After Dark

After Dark is a lighthearted show about true crime, the supernatural, and the paranormal. 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

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 8:00am to 10:00am

Films We Hate

Grab onto your beanies and Tarantino posters because we’re airing out qualms, quibbles and all on Films We Hate, a talk show where we discuss controversially received films from different eras and how they’ve held up over the years. Each week, and with the occasional guest, we’ll take a look at a movie we’re particularly passionate about loving, hating, or loving-to-hate while making sure we have at least a few points of disagreement, which shouldn’t be too difficult for us. Then – with our gigantic brains – we’ll dissect the different aspects we think particularly – for a lack of better words – slay or flop. Our different segments will be broken up by intermediate music breaks curated to fit the themes of the episode, and topped off with a silly, handpicked Letterboxd review for your intellectual consideration.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

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 hosts Lauren and Abby are first foremost swifties, 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 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.

from 10:00am to 12:00pm

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 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

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

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 10:00pm to 12:00am

Metaverse

Metaverse is a show that explores the metadata of iconic rock and pop songs. Many playlists will be based around song titles, such as songs with numbers in the title, songs with people's names in the title, and different songs that happen to have the same title. There could also be playlists based around song lengths (really short or really long songs) or chart positions (one-hit wonders and their second-biggest hits). (Playlists based on artists, genres, release dates, and moods are out of scope because those aren't meta enough.) The show will be around 80% music; during talk breaks, we’ll discuss the songs we’re playing, why we selected them for the playlist, and other songs that fit the theme.

Visit the show's website http://wilderperkins.neocities.org/wtbu.html to view all my past playlists.

from 8:00am to 10:00am

Folkin' Around

On Folkin’ Around our focus is, naturally, on folk music. However our discussions will go far beyond just the songs themselves, so as to include the people, the stories, the controversies and everything else in between. Folk is an inherently vague genre label so we’d like to encourage anyone who’s simply generally interested in the genre or its many subdivisions to come on and offer their take.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

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 10:00am to 12:00pm

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 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Trust Me, I'm Right

Welcome to Trust Me, I'm Right, WTBU's only show! Here, there are no such things as opinions, only loudly declared facts, and debates can be won by saying ratio because you have no fundamental basis for your argument. This talk show will include a mix of things like collaboratively creating tier lists about the best vegetables and self-help columns that no doctor would advise you to follow. On our music breaks, we'll play songs that match the energy and themes that we had just been speaking about. There have been zero days since the last incident.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

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!

from 12:00pm to 2:00pm

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 4:00pm to 6:00pm

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 6:00pm to 8:00pm

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 10:00pm to 12:00am

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 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Del Camino

Our show is called s"Del Camino" which means "Of the way/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.



We bring in guests almost every week to discuss ranging topics from music, art, politics, and 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.



On instagram: @DelCaminoRadio

from 10:00am to 12:00pm

All You Can Eat

All You Can Eat covers anything and everything that a BU student might need to know about food on and near campus. From the best things to eat at the dining halls, to our favorite restaurants off-campus, to the sneakiest ways to get more food for less money, if it has to do with chowing down, we'll discuss it. In between chatting, a selection of unique and quirky songs from our database (sourced from an online exhibition in 2009 by artist Matt Bua and added to by DJs and listeners) will be played.

from 8:00am to 10:00am

Speak No Evil

Each week, Speak No Evil takes a deep dive into the life and work of a single artist, charting their influences, style over the years and work outside their usual recording. We incorporate details from biographies, liner notes, original reporting — anywhere we can find meat to chew on — following their lives chronologically. Previous episodes have ranged from Bob Weir to Ben Folds, and this season, DJ Daniel Kool will be taking a new focus on artists' contributions as musicians as well as producers, checking in on how their style can be heard in the work of other acts.

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 2:00pm to 4:00pm

WTBU Sports
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

The Vapor Plaza

Welcome to the Vapor Plaza. This vaporwave radio show plays songs from the wide range of vapor styles, from house-influenced Future Funk, to silky smooth Late-Nite Lo-Fi, to spacy ethereal Slushwave. We hope you enjoy your time at the Plaza.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

MCI x WTBU

The Minority Connection Initiative'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: to 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 10:00pm 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 2:00pm to 4:00pm

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

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 12:00am to 2:00am

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. We provide 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 feels with us.

from 10:00pm to 12:00am

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 8:00am to 10:00am

80s Place with Grace

80s Place with Grace is the one stop shop for everything 80s--music, fashion, movies, etc. The show will blend a mix of both music and talk, mainly focused on the music. Each week will have an overarching theme that will inspire the content/music choices with segments titled Totally Tubular Today and Retro Reviews. The Totally Tubular Today segment will focus on how something from the 80s has made its way into modern culture (for example: Stranger Things). The Retro Reviews will be a review based segment on a certain film or show from the 1980s.

from 10:00am to 12:00pm

Ladies of History

In “Ladies of History,” we play music from various female artists and pay tribute to memorable gals from all over the world, but especially from French and American history, from the 1800s to the present day. We talk about inspirational women who aren’t in history books but should be, as they made groundbreaking discoveries, started social or art movements, stood up to the men in power and changed the face of the world. In “Ladies of History,” we discuss these women’s impact on society, the role they played in important historical events, and these events’ cultural significance today. We also talk about women in the news, play music from female artists, and interview female leaders on campus to give them a platform to share their achievements and struggles with the audience.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

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 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Paint 'er Red

Tune in to Paint 'er Red to listen to discussions on leftist politics, workers' rights movements, modern socialist theory, and a few goofs and gaffes. We occasionally showcase music related to these topics - there is a broad array of communist and leftist art which goes unexamined, and we want to uncover this oft-neglected current of music! You can't go wrong with themed episodes dealing with history or current events, especially when you include a playlist to go along with it!

from 8:00pm to 10:00pm

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

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

Eclectic Investments

"Eclectic Investments" is a show with an emphasis on eclecticism. Every week, the show will have a different theme which dictates what sort of music will be played on that day. The theme can range from a certain genre, music from a particular location, songs about a certain topic, etc. Though eclectic, the music played on the show will primarily fall under the "alternative" umbrella.

from 12:00am to 2:00am

Please Take My Mixtape

The show where we want you to check out our “mixtape” that we've burned especially for you. Examples include “I took a philosophy class that one time" and “Why does my floor smell weird?” and "RIP Queen Elizabeth II" <3

from 10:00am to 12:00pm

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 12:00pm to 2:00pm

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 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 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Moonage Daydream

Moonage Daydream is WTBU's very own time capsule show. Inspired by the Voyager Golden Record---the gold-plated vinyls that NASA sent on the voyager space probes with the greatest music and encapsulation of humanity for any extraterrestrial intelligent life to find---we explore the use of music in representing a time period, a culture, a zeitgeist. With a different theme each week, we create our own golden records, using the breaks to explore the selections, talk about alternative media inclusions, and the weekly theme as a whole.

Triple R is all about Classic Rock! We research different rock events, concerts, and tours mainly from the 1960s/70s and play the best hits from those shows.

A lot of fun history, a lot of good music, and a lot of fun fun fun!

time / space

time / space is a radio show that invites listeners to explore the capabilities of music and memory. Though the format remains the same each week, the episode themes will vary in mood, and focus on a specific memory or situation, for example: sitting and thinking in your bedroom alone at 3am, looking through old pictures in your attic, or driving down the highway on your way to the beach with your best friends. Our episodes will be 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 will begin with an explanation of that week’s theme, and talk breaks throughout the show will feature prepared personal narratives explaining the specific memories associated with the songs we chose. Occasionally, we will include guests to contribute their own memories and the songs linked to them. Ultimately, our goal is to allow the music to capture a specific moment in time (and space) - and we hope that listeners reflect on their own attachments to the songs chosen as well.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

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 10:00pm to 12:00am

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.

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

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.
