Scandinavian folk classical ghost stories and cod surrealism. All Current music.

Cuppa Joe

Caffeine in hand. Accidental and adventurous. Unstaid and unsettled. Experimental and empirical. Occasionally flustered but always passin' muster. Dammit Jim, I'm a simple country DJ, not a miracle worker! Get your radio-fu here!

Deep Mission

Good morning Mr. Phelps. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to listen. From the deepest darkest heart of the mission come the throbbing beats of something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. All for you.

Jesse Luscious

What you hear is only most of what you get; requests, mostly of the rockin' kind, are incredibly welcome. It's opinion scattered among caffeinated punk, hip-hop, ska, country, rap, rockabilly and practically anything else thrown at the listeners like so much rotten, yet strange, fruit. Run-on sentences are a way of life!

Kendra K

What Heino making love to a manatee would sound like, only better.  Unless she actually plays Heino in which case it sounds worse than a manatee making love to Heino.

Lady Shiv

Lou Guru

Always some classical, a lot of punk, a mixture of anything else weird or funny or mood-of-the-day, plus a lot of very inane commentary. Usually there's something French too.

Majority Whip

"Radio has helped to make people fixated on one particular kind of a sound and one particular kind of a style. And, a lot of people today, since music education is virtually nonexistent in public schools, they don't even know what they've been missing in terms of music from other cultures, music from America from other periods, (and) different styles. You may not like it all, but if you don't even know that it exists, how are you going to make up your mind?" - Frank Zappa


Twang twang twang, bleep bleep bloop, ob la di, deedly boodly, raaaraaar, doo bee doo, scitchy scratch, bow chicka bow bow, bounce bounce bounce, la dee dah.


Penny Royal

Aborting boredom in the Bay Area and beyond, Penny Royal is keeping things loud and weird on the KALX airwaves. From avant-noise, free jazz, to punk rock, there's a little something for everyone when Penny Royal takes over. Tune in and turn on.

Scratchy Vinyl

Presented in low-quality stereophonic sound, the Scratchy Vinyl show is the program on KALX where the music will go in one ear and out the other

Sex 14s

Wandering the foggy moors of dreamland with only a Victrola to light the way. Where songs about Jesus and Satan intermix with ditties about cheeses and seitan. Tipping sacred cows as we stumble towards a kind of Valhalla where Ish Kabibble shares a table with Subbulakshmi.


popcore. dronewave. robot ragas. emotronica. vegetable punk. grime'n'bass. hindi-indie. smooth metal.

Transister Sistor

Glam-a-Rama Metallic Banana - Music for the Mosh Pits, Hootenanny's and Disco Ballrooms of life. Viva Eclectica!

Tumble Weed

Got'em, if you smoke'm. Pioneering the aural trail with the odd, indie and international to live layering bionic meltdowns. Spreading seeds of sound, far and near - everything you've never heard (or not heard quite like this)! Take the time to smell the weeds . . .

Velvet Einstein

From punk to classical, from Paris to Hong Kong, from noise to polyphony, from the islands of Cape Verde to the island of Alameda, all without leaving the comfort of your frequency.
