Sunday Special

Sunday 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Every Sunday is a different special. The Sunday Special gives WREK’s DJs some time to use their imaginations and do a little experimentation. Sometimes Sunday Specials focus on a specific genre that we don’t cover in depth here at WREK. Sometimes we highlight a particular artist. It is always exciting. Tune in to hear our DJ’s favorite music.
