Life is a Rock and ALTitude coming to WHYR Wednesday nights starting November 8th @ 8pm

Fans of 96.9FM’s Wednesday night country, blues, and rock lineup will have two new shows to enjoy starting Wednesday November 8th. Joining Baton Rouge Community Radio will be Life is a Rock, 8:00-9:00pm, and ALTitude, from 9:00-10:00pm.

Life is a Rock is a classic rock program with a weekly theme on historic events and milestones of rock personalities from that week in history, playing the hits and the B-sides by those same artists.

ALTitude is a show featuring alternative pop / power pop music. From the show’s host, Madison Square: “I say it’s ‘adult alternative pop, power pop, classic alternative and whatever else fits the groove.’ It’s Elvis Costello meets Jellyfish. And there’s a Beatle Break halfway through. The show’s really about the music, the stories, the fun.”

Good Points Radio now on WHYR Mondays @ 10:00pm

Good Points Radio is the newest show to join Baton Rouge Community Radio. Listen every Monday from 10 to 11pm for ‘the greatest music ever recorded, one hour at a time.’

Check out the show, listen to past episodes, and see the play list at Good Points’ website:

https://www.goodpointsradio.com/

One more thing: Every fourth Monday, Good Points Radio will become ‘Shakedown Radio’, Louisiana’s ONLY Grateful Dead radio hour! Does the neat freak in you prefer the un-paralleled perfection of May 1977? Or do you crave the rabid acid-test psychedelia of early 1969? Do you enjoy listening to Jerry scorch theaters and auditoriums off of the face of the earth? 1971 is for you. Is your space getting hot? Take an ’82 Althea and call me in the morning. Feel like a stranger? Need a miracle? Spring 1990 is your ticket. It’s gonna be some rare and different tunes – only on 96.9FM Baton Rouge!
