Sound Blocks

Our regular rotation sound blocks take up most of the daytime broadcast hours and generally involve a specific musical genre (or mix of genres). These shows can be hosted by any WREK staff member and vary from day to day.

Check out our archives to find anything from the past two weeks.

Overnight Alternatives

Weeknights 1:30 AM – 6 AM
128kbps / 24kbps

A 4.5-hour deconstruction of music and sound. During Overnight Alternatives we play anything and everything, but with an emphasis on the experimental: noise, avant-garde jazz, free improvisation, industrial, power electronics… In other words, the most extreme music on the radio.
