Every weekend local music geeks unite to provide the region with 11 hours of creatively curated tunes on WOUB 1340AM, an endeavor that is known commonly as Radio Free Athens! Typically the program runs from 9 a.m. EST to 8 p.m. EST every Saturday, and can also be heard through this link.

Here is a list of the DJs slated to play on Saturday, June 30:

9 a.m. to 12 p.m. – DJ Grumpy Grandma
12 p.m. to 3 p.m. – Out of the Afternoon with Art Cromwell
3 p.m. to 6 p.m. – R@t
6 p.m. to 8 p.m. – Michael T

Below, find a preview of some of the groovy tunes that will be flowing through the airwaves this Saturday from a couple of our volunteer DJs.

From DJ Grumpy Grandma, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST 

It’s supposed to get HOT this Saturday, with peak temperatures soaring into the mid-90s (with that real feel temp probably much higher than that,) so this Grumpy Grandma is planning to put on her newly acquired Steely Dan baseball hat, ample amounts of 110 spf, and only her coolest personal favorites for her early morning radio show. This means her listeners will be treated to a scandalous degree of palpitation-inducing grooves from the likes of Major Lance, Dan Deacon, 50 Cent, The Beatles, and many more — maybe even some Kanye sprinkled in there for good measure.

You can also  look forward to your favorite ill-spirited octogenarian-in-the-body-of-a-woman-in-her-mid-20s spinning regionally beloved songsmith Adam Remnant’s most recent LP release Sourwood, which DJ Grumpy G received only a few days ago in the mail. 

From Art Cromwell, 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST 

From R@T, 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. EST 

Sometimes the best shows are the ones that have no plans. Although with the heat there might be some songs with ‘hot’ in the title. Possibly some cover songs too.

From Michael T, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. EST 

Michael T. will be playing new tunes from the likes of BODEGA, Caroline Rose, and Toyah. So tune in!
