Mandolin Extravaganza!

Shortly after 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 1, Charley Rappaport, director of the Pittsburgh Mandolin Orchestra, will stop by WRCT’s Whiskey Before Breakfast to preview the PMO’s May 4 concert and to talk about how mandolin family instruments are used all across the musical spectrum.

You’ll enjoy Charley’s comments on selections from the PMO’s recordings and hear music from some of Charley’s and Mandorichard’s favorite mandolinists.

Tune in to WRCT from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday. All here on on 88.3 FM, Pittsburgh, and streaming from this very website.

New show! Soundwalking debuts Wednesday April 17

Starting this Wednesday, DJ Omni will be hosting Soundwalking, a show in tribute to Hildegard Westerkamp’s show of the same name from the Vancouver Co-operative Radio.

Tune in at 10:30 a.m. Wednesdays to hear compelling sounds from places in the local Pittsburgh area. Hopefully, by paying attention to these sounds, you will also be more compelled to listen to sounds you experience in your daily life.

Westerkamp’s show, to quote her, “brought community soundscapes into listeners’ homes and simultaneously extended listeners’ ears into the soundscape of the community.”

Tune in and see what your city has to say!

Vinyl, Vinyl, Vinyl!

After Buggy finishes on Saturday, April 13, WRCT is participating in Vinylthon, a national event happening on over 100 college and community radio stations across the country!

Tune in to WRCT from about noon until 6:00 p.m. on Saturday to hear our DJs spin tunes from nothing but vinyl, all happening on 88.3 FM, Pittsburgh, and streaming from this very website.
