In case you haven’t heard our latest lineup additions, we’ve been rolling out a series of new shows that are unique to WHUP and add substantially to our roster of original, locally produced shows with global appeal. Our new modern classical (and beyond) program Composers Studio features interviews with local, regional and national-caliber composers talking about their work and occasionally performing live in-studio. DJ and avid crate-digger Brian Burns spins a revelatory hour of rare soul and funky 45s from his stash on King Street Soul. New music with an emphasis on local is the focus of This Is Not A Show, freshly transplanted to Hillsborough along with host Rusty Roberts after several years on WERA in VA.
WHUP’s first show exploring music’s dark, metallic side, Darkwaves, presents a mix of obscurities and better-known material spanning the globe with a healthy dose from countries with long winters and little light. Finally, though it’s been on the air for a few months, we are pleased to be airing the region’s premier hip-hop music and culture show, Radio Unfriendly, spoken word and conversation with host Main Man and an array of prominent guests.
We’ve got additional shows in the pipeline, so watch for our upcoming announcements as we continue to bring you the best shows the Southeast has to offer!
