WKUF Is Expanding Its Classic Alternative Library!

Based on the results of our survey, alternative music is one of the most popular genres among our listeners. While we had a decent amount of alternative tracks (current and classic) in our automated, we were still looking to grow. With that in mind, we recently added over 40 classic alternative tracks from the late 70s through the 90s to our lineup. The above montage represents just some of the artists with songs that were added. By row, from top left: Talking Heads, The Smiths, Oasis, The Replacements, L7, Depeche Mode, Garbage, The Pixies, and The Cure. A big shout out to J.L. Massimino (the host of The J.L. Massimino Show) for his help in making this happen. For fans of the current alternative scene, don't worry because we'll be adding more of those tracks too so please stay tuned! In the meantime, please check out this performance by The Smiths.

What's the name of your show? Alternative Moods

What's your show about and when does it air?   My show is on Fridays at 11:45 am-12:45 pm. I am going to be playing music (mostly alternative rock but other random genres as well) that pertains to a different mood each week. I’ll be talking about a variety of things, but with the intent of how music can change moods!

Is there a story behind your on-air name?   Not really; my friend came up with it since my last name is "Fox" and she said I’m “cool” - I’ll take it.

How long has your show been on the air? Since October 20, 2017

What do you like to do in your spare time?   I like to listen to music (of course), play ukulele and guitar, design and make videos, run, and go on adventures to places with friends. 

If you knew you were going to be stranded on a desert island, what are 10 of the songs you'd want with you?

What is one of your most memorable concert experiences?   I went to a small venue to see Frank Iero and the Patience. Frank is a former member of My Chemical Romance and it was one of the best concerts I have seen. You could tell that everyone playing were genuinely cool people and everyone watching just had a ton of fun!
