Ambient, drone; spaced-out textures for deep meditation.
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.
WREK’s classical music rotation. You can expect to hear music from the full historical spectrum of the Western art tradition, from the pre-Common Practice era through today’s most innovative composers. A refreshing alternative to classical programming on other non-commercial stations.
The name says it all: traditional jazz, modern jazz, hot jazz, cool jazz, free jazz, proprietary jazz, jazz fusion, jazz fission.
Blue Plate Special
A weekday dose of our Weekend Cornucopia format.
