WRST logoWRST-FM at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is offering an eclectic mix of spoken word programs during its weekday afternoon schedule.

All are heard between 5 and 6 p.m. over WRST at 90.3 FM in the Oshkosh area and worldwide at www.wrst.org.

On Mondays, WRST presents “La Mezcla” (The Mix), a student-produced program done entirely in Spanish. The program’s producer and co-host is Katherine Garcia, a UWO Radio TV Film student and native of Puerto Rico. She is joined by fellow UWO students Blanca Colchado-Mendoza and Cynthia Vargas, both natives of Mexico.  The show includes a national newscast and news features from Radio Bilingue in California, Wisconsin news headlines delivered in Spanish by the student hosts and other informational segments.

On Tuesdays, the talk turns to movies.  “Filmspotting” is a weekly program of movie reviews, ‘Top 5’ lists and retrospectives along with filmmaker and actor interviews. The program is hosted by Chicago-based film critics Adam Kempenaar and Josh Larsen. It’s produced by Chicago Public Media and made available through WRST’s membership in the Public Radio Exchange.

On Wednesdays, WRST airs the science newsmagazine “Big Picture Science” from the SETI Institute. Madison native and former Wisconsin Public Radio producer Molly Bentley is co-host and executive producer of the show, which covers a wide range of scientific topics.  Once a month, the program presents “Skeptic Check,” where the hosts and guests debunk the claims of pseudoscience.

On Thursdays, WRST presents a new program in the weekly lineup.  “The Mimi Geerges Show,” is a one hour interview program.  Geerges is a former public radio talk show producer and her program features discussions with a wide range of experts, authors, newsmakers and entertainers.

On Fridays, WRST airs “Week in Review,” a student-produced newsmagazine. The program features student-produced radio news stories along with news items from producers around the country and the world. The show also includes a world/national newscast from Feature Story News in Washington, DC and student-produced newscasts of Wisconsin news.

These programs are followed each weekday at 6 p.m. by “The Sports Page,” a student-produced one-hour sports talk program.  The hosts take a wide-ranging look at the world of sports with a special emphasis on UW Oshkosh Titan Athletics.
