WOUB-FM Welcomes New Weekend Line Up< < Back to
The changes kicked off Saturday, July 8 with the premiere of the New Yorker Radio Hour at 10 a.m., replacing the much-beloved Best of Car Talk.
Rusty Smith, WOUB’s FM Program Manager, said that the changes in line up stem largely from the fact that NPR will be retiring The Best of Car Talk later this year, while WNYC’s broadcast season kicked off July 1. Those who wish to listen to the comforting chatter of Magliozzi brothers Click and Clack can always listen to old episodes at cartalk.com.
The rest of the programming changes will take effect Saturday, July 15.
Folk Alley has been moved to 6 a.m. on Saturdays, providing a healthy dose of Americana and roots music to early risers.
Fiona Ritchie’s weekly delve into Celtic rooted tunes, Thistle and Shamrock, has been moved from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sunday. The 10 a.m. Sunday slot will be filled by Snap Judgement, hosted by Glynn Washington. The program delves into storytelling utilizing sound in creative and thought-provoking ways.
The 11 a.m. slot on Sundays will now be filled with eTown, a music and conversation radio show with an environmentally sustainable focus. eTown’s former broadcast time period, at 6 a.m. on Sundays, will now be filled with Reveal, an investigative reporting program crafted by The Center for Investigative Reporting.
