In addition to Hear the Evidence, one of our original music shows hosted by Jonathan McJunkin, we now have Millionheirs Radio with DJ Soulfire and Smoked Out Entertainment with Ap Tha Don. Ready for the Radio with DJ Soulone (Vincent Young) airs the best of today’s R & B and hip-hop at 10 p.m. Thursday & Saturday.

We’ve also added EDM (Electronic Dance Music) with DJ S0ulf!r3, and a new show featuring women artists will be airing on Saturdays.

We will be adding more music by local artists into our regular music line-up, with The Pulse of the Port—local music of all genres—continuing at 7 p.m., Tuesday–Friday.

So, calling all local and regional musicians:  We have more time slots than ever to air your best tracks! Send us a CD or email us an mp3 file, or just drop by our office at the Pajama Factory, #14.

Volunteer DJs Needed!

We need DJs for just about every genre of music. Our DJs generally produce their shows as podcasts on their own computers. We can provide training if you want to do a show. We’re also looking for people who want to do local news and talk. If you’d like to help out behind the scenes or on the air, email us at wxpradio@gmail.com or leave us a message at 570-398-0318.
