90.5 - Listen Local on Saturdays

90.5 becomes VERY local on Saturdays beginning this month. We've added some brand new programs to complement other recent local additions, making it a day that is all about your community.

From Current State Weekends through Wind & Rhythm hosted by MSU alumnus Doug Brown, Saturday afternoon listening at 90.5 is your local connection to music and the arts. Brand new is Primarily Piano -- an hour of classical piano performance hosted by WKAR's Peter Whorf.

Here's a look at the new line-up for Saturdays on 90.5 FM WKAR.
