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, January 5:

9 a.m. to 12 p.m. – R@T
12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. – Chad Reich
4 p.m. to 6 p.m. – DJ Grumpy Grandma
6 p.m. to 8 p.m. – Michael T.

If you miss this weekend’s fine radio programming — shame on you! — but not really, you can hear some fine selections from each DJ’s setlist on WOUB’s Radio Free Athens Spotify playlist, available at this link.

From DJ Grumpy Grandma, 4 p.m. EDT to 6 p.m. EDT

I’ve been listening to “There’s a Rugged Road” by lost folk hero Judee Sill for three days straight. It’s weird, it’s sad, it’s kind of like a hymn? Or maybe a fugue. Or Bach. Anyway, Sill had a tragic, eventful life and left behind her two complete albums released by her once-friend David Geffen (she burned that bridge,), and another round of rarities that were released many decades after her death and produced by the one and only Jim O’Rourke. This is a teaser, because I don’t actually have Heart Food in physical copy — yet. But I wanted to let you know, my sweet listeners, where my head space is in this, the first week of the new year.
