“You Never Know What You’ll Hear Next”

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

This show’s thematic title is taken from one of the on-air slogans the student programmers utilized when I first started at WSHU 40 years ago. I was a part-time faculty member at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT and the students were playing everything but folk music. I filled the void after jawboning them about their musical choices.

This program is simply a mélange of not-so-new albums (and personal favorites) and follows several weeks of programming music from shiny new albums. It sometimes fun — and surprising — to dust off the old discs.

Even with Profiles at times, you never do know what you’ll hear next!
