Delving into a myriad of other artistic pursuits, the show will exhibit a wide range of up and coming, boundary pushing artists. In addition, Ryan and Brian will discuss a broad range of topics including current events, pop culture, and the multitude of oddities that they encounter throughout their day to day lives.
Tuesdays 11pm-12am FUBU (for us by us) radio show highlights music from Black Artists of ALL genres, discussing classics, new releases, local artists, and groundbreaking art all while primarily playing music from these artists. Each week highlights a specific artist or era of music for listeners to vibe with.
Wednesdays 5-6pm Feelin' and Healin' is all about showcasing (primarily) indie music that makes you feel and heal. From local bands like Go Cozy, to dreamy powerhouses like Beach House, Feelin' and Healin' aims to highlight the mystical crux of music that embodies universally significant notions of melancholy, joy, love and longing. Expect a variety of slow and sweet songs, as well as some more raw and emotive jams. So settle down in your bed, get intimate with your inner self or a companion, and feel free to cry, journal, or simply listen to some lovely music.
Tuesdays 11am-12pm Refried Beats is some hot hot songs I find over the course of the week, mostly with a disco backbeat and Certified Twerkable. I'm tryna play some international bops and sweet jazzy funk that Pitbull would approve of. Expect to feel the urge to pop off !
Saturdays 8-9am What’s a drive without music? Complete trash. We all saw Baby Driver, right? So let’s apply this logic to the best video game ever, Mario Kart. Every week, I will create a playlist inspired by a specific Mario Kart course. Listeners can expect to hear many genres of music carefully woven together through the power of Mario. So whether you’re at home racing on Mario Kart, or in your Subaru WRX playing Baby Driver, or doing neither....this show will make you say: “it’s a-me, Mario!”
Saturdays 4-6pm think playboi carti meets cashmere cat. yeah i dont really know what that means either. but expect some thick trap beats and some electronic slow funk curated by your least favorite.
Wednesdays 3-4pm Movement for the Ears, Nutrition for the Mind. Music for the Body, Fuel for the Soul.
Tuesdays 6-7pm Ian has been involved in WVAU since his first semester in Fall of 2014. He started reviewing music on music staff and gradually branched out to becoming a DJ and later Music Director. He loves coffee, food and rackspins.
Mondays 4-5pm soft power is spicy sweet mix of the newest and greatest bits of modern rock. focused mainly on music from small and independent labels, soft power showcases artists both large and small. every week, tune in to hear some hidden gems from local acts and east coast wonders, and learn about all sorts of great bands touring through the district.
Tuesdays 10-11pm Brandon and Suah can’t afford therapists so they’ve turned to the next best thing: the airwaves. Join them on the struggle bus as they cry about their weekly suffering, play some fresh beatz, and recommend expensive cheeses so you can stay classy on your downward spiral. Tune in for some angsty but catchy garbage as they drown their feelings in music (and cheese).
Sundays 5-6pm You can expect a lot from Sports Talk with the Boys. Sports? Who knows. What is for sure is that us fast-talkin boys will be discussing music, witches, astrology, gay icons, and our feelings all whilst playing specially curated playlists of artpop/hip-hop tunes of our choosing. We’re not scientists here, and we’re really just here to bicker on air.
Sundays 4-5pm You know that feeling when your spine shakes from the bass? When you get goosebumps from how deep the music’s pouring out of the speakers? The feeling when your head is reeling from how sick that drop was but the melody carries you through the rest of the song? You've probably been listening to house music
Tuesdays 3-4pm Femme Fronted was hard and restricting, but femininity, gender, and sexuality still need a focus in music discussions, so Soft Girl puts a spotlight on femmes, women, and nb people in music while still sometimes maybe playing Frank Ocean. I really just want to talk about Frank Ocean this semester. Because no one needs to listen to ((white)) men ((especially not me)), conversations and music centered around non-men will always be at the forefront, because everyone needs a safe space power hour.
Thursdays 12-1pm Milo is in any band that will have them, and they are a rival to UMD's Angeline King, who runs a radio show over there. They like writing songs, talking about bad horror movies, and hopes that, eventually, they will play at the Fillmore.

Wednesdays 9-10am Madden is proud to be a 5th semester DJ on WVAU, an obnoxious New Yorker, an Irish girl missing the home country, and a Bob Dylan enthusiast.
Sundays 6-8pm The underground scene of LA is more than just Burger records, Fidlar, or all of the tiny bands that make up the OC scene. The beauty of the LA underground scene is that it is representative of the different people that make up LA.
Wednesdays 2-3pm Come explore my musical headspace and other crazy things my brain thinks sounds gr8. I'll be playing my favorite songs in a bunch of different genres from alt rock to K-pop to J-rock to Bollywood and everything else you never even thought of.
