On-Air Show:  Pie for Breakfast

Show Genre:  singer/songwriter

Show Description: I play a whole variety of singer/songwriter music, typically in a folk vein. I dabble in some rock, blues, and funk as well, just whatever I'm feeling for the day, so long as it fits the singer/songwriter bill! Some artists you may hear on my show include Ray LaMontagne, Brandi Carlile, Amos Lee, Bob Dylan, and Jenny Lewis. You never know! Pie For Breakfast is the sweetest way to start your day. (Yes, it rhymes). It's a slice of singer/songwriter tunes that will hopefully give you the inspiration to start your Saturday morning off right. I try to find tracks that combine great musicianship with great songwriting, as well as transcend genres. The flavor varies week to week, so be sure to tune in!

On-Air Schedule:  Pie for Breakfast Saturday 9-10am/Luther Spotlight Sunday 4:30pm

Show Genre: Bluegrass, Folk and Country

Representative Artists: Lucinda Williams, Trampled by Turtles, Ryan Adams, Punch Brothers, Abigail Washburn

Show Description:  I believe in 100% organic homegrown Americana folk. When I can I try to showcase both new and old folk and singer-songwriter classics, with a ton of new music across the field of folk, country, bluegrass, and americana. Most of my shows will examine a theme, like storytelling, bluegrass, or the evolution of a specific genre through time.

Maddie Tyler

Indigenous/Folk/ World Music Director

Show Title: KWLC's Global Dance Party

Show Description:  It's a dance party! In the morning! Tune in for an hour of traditional world music every Saturday. Lots of different genres of indigenous music, mostly dance music are played. With a focus on European music, Asian, African and Latin American music are also thrown into the mix. Also included is a wide range of traditional North American music. From the bayous of Louisiana to fiddle tunes from the United States East to West, especially Midwest, up to the Canadian areas in Quebec, Cape Breton and Prince Edward Island, our own continent has a wide range of indigenous music. So join me for this celebration of old fashion, traditional, foot-stomping music!
