Music Shows

At Heatwave, we hand-pick our music based on years of personal research. We aim to expand the listener’s musical palate with immense variety in genre, and to diversify our community’s radio presence. Our content is curated based on expert opinions and popular demand. We hope you enjoy the harmonic cornucopia we have to offer.

Do not hesitate to contact us with musical demos, song requests, performance applications, or other suggestions.

The Album Show

Hosted by Jeff “Bandshirt” Bulmer and Easton Doran

Jeff and Easton feature a new “classic album”each week. This does not necessarily designate a monumental record, nor even a platinum record. The albums are chosen based on their merit – if they should be classics.

Classical

Hosted by Chidi Agbo

Featuring the biggest names in classical music, from Mozart to Jenkins.

Country

Hosted by Mark Coutts

Marky Coutts talks about trucks and dogs and beer and proches and summer and girls in shorts. Just kidding, he gives you a wide array of country sub-genres to extend your palette, spanning from the dustbowl 30s to the present day. Sophisticated southern jams!
