UW Oshkosh’s student radio station has released its programming schedule for the fall semester. 90.3 WRST, the station that redefines alternative, will feature a number of new shows along with some old favorites like the heavy metal-themed MegaHertz, talk show Wild-Eyed Radio and Jazz Directions.
“It’s really impressive the caliber of students that have stepped up to provide some really unique shows,” said Dan VanDenEng, station manager. “Our programming goes beyond alternative in terms of true variety.”
Another returning show, Cafe Riot, features comedy albums along with two wacky disc jockeys who attempt their own brand of humor between sets. The show is in its fourth semester at the station.
There also will be numerous Free Format programs, which feature new music not heard on commercial radio.
“No other station in the area is willing to provide the variety that WRST does,” VanDenEng said.
Local student programs start weekdays at 3 p.m. and weekends at 1 p.m. A full program schedule, upcoming events, a free online stream and more are available at www.wrst.org.
