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, August 24:

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

From R@T, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. EDT 

I am doing 9 to noon this weekend. I probably will have to leave my house early to find a parking spot. It is move in weekend here in A-Camp. Chaos is upon us in an annual ritual. I will be playing some music from my undergrad years as part of the back to school special that will show up on our website,, on Monday, August 26. Be careful out there and pay attention to traffic laws.

Out of the Afternoon with Art Cromwell, 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT Art's show 8/24

From DJ Grumpy Grandma, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. EDT 

Sweet, sweet listeners. This year your dear DJ Grumpy Grandma will begin her higher education journey to the pursuit of becoming a Master of Media Arts and Studies. Long story short, she’s got a major case of imposter syndrome — and who wouldn’t when the rest of their cohort basically sounds like they are out to save the world with their research? DJ Grumpy Grandma is interested in the nature of music and sound, and given that her eyesight has been terrible since she was a little kid, that only makes sense! She keeps reminding herself that if there’s something she knows about, it’s music, regardless of how people treat a young woman with a large record collection.
