Where's My Utopia?

Talk show with music breaks; focusing on the lives of those who have strived for "utopias" (primarily environmental utopias), whether they had their hearts in the right place or not. Also diving into proposed utopian policies throughout the years, a close look at patterns or why these ideas failed/fell out of public favor, and interviews with current community leaders and professors/authors with deeper insight to this topic.

from 12:00pm to 2:00pm

ska is dead and we killed it

As a genre, ska has not made any substantial entrances into the musical mainstream since the end of the third wave in the early 2000s, despite a flourishing scene. This is often attributed to the unwillingness of fans to move on from the bands of the late 1990s. "ska is dead and we killed it" aims to expose ska fans to ska made after the peak of the third wave. Additionally, there is a growing adoption of the elements of ska within the midwest emo and bummer pop subgenres, as shown by musician Jeremy Andrew Hunter of Skatune Network. This music will also be played, as to show the current state of Ska and all things ska adjacent as well as their trajectory. This show will mostly be 90-100 minutes of music centered around a theme such as women in ska or standout trombone solos, with an interjection every twenty minutes or so to talk about the songs and bands that have been played. Depending on availability, I'll reach out to bands to schedule interviews and on-air appearances.

Null Companion

I won't talk much (hence the name), but I will play some sweet tunes and occasionally dive into topics regarding artists' creative processes, inspiration, or just about them as a person. As I'm not one for sharing about myself on the air, I want to explore the artists themselves. I plan to have two featured artists whose music would be heavily featured in the show, and discuss them throughout as to make sure that even people joining late would get to learn about these artists. Although the featured artists and other music played won't necessarily be of the same style, they will all be those which I believe do have some type of overlap in process, inspiration, or meaning, which I will explore during the show. My hope with this show is to bring to light commonalities among seemingly distant music.

from 4:00pm to 6:00pm

ShoeGazed and Confused

The show will feature shoegaze music from the late 80s and 90s, and additionally modern dreampop/shoegaze artists appearing right now, such as ones involved with Luminelle Records. The name of the show is a word play off of the film title Dazed and Confused because as a filmmaker, I love incorporating shoegaze music into my theory of film when I am screenwriting and editing. Also, shoegaze music can be very off-putting and confusing. The format would be a two hour long show filled with shoegaze music and breaks in discussion of fun facts about the bands and the progression of 80s/90s shoegaze into modern interpretations of the genre.

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

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.

Stuck With Us

This show will be talk based and focus in on books, movies, tv shows, and other media that have been taking up our free time during quarantine. Each week we'll have an in depth topic from comparing different film adaptations of a book, to giving recommendations on what we've been watching, and even taking suggestions from our listeners on topics to discuss/things to watch/read. The goal is to look at this new "at home" time as a space for catching up on old shows, reading books, etc. Think of it as a cooler, more relaxed version of a book club or viewing party!

from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Under Cover

This show will focus on covers of songs and albums.

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 12:00pm to 2:00pm

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.

The Slap

The origins of each weekly theme is discussed in-depth from the origins to other big names in the genre.

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

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 6:00pm to 8:00pm

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.

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.

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).

Summer at the Drive-In

Quarantine has given us extra time to check off some items from our Movie/TV Bucket Lists. This summer we are going to attempt to cross one movie/episode off every week and talk about it on our show. Each week we will have a different theme — “Favorite Childhood Summer Movie,” “Best Summer Movie Musical” (the correct answer is Mamma Mia but we encourage a lively debate), “Go-To Sleepover Movie,” and “Most Underrated Movie" to name a few.

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.
