Radio Shows

  • The Trip with Clay Gaunce is a programme which airs weekly on WRFL (88.1), the University of Kentucky's *other* radio station in Lexington, Kentucky, USA. Clay produces and hosts the show, in which Canterbury music is prominently featured, Saturday evenings from 6:00-9:00. He got his radio legs during the early 70's when, as he puts it, "People actually paid me to broadcast the music I love! It was reassuring, to say the least, when the students who run WRFL asked me to do 'The Trip', especially now that I'm an old fart!" You may read more about the show, see playlists, etc., at 'The Trip' web site.
  • Dreams Wide Awake is a radio show hosted by Jason Ellerbee, that airs Friday nights from 6 to 10 pm, Eastern time. It is a music show that features progressive rock and related music, such as fusion, symphonic, RIO, electronic, Canterbury, zeuhl, and other traditionally un-radio-friendly music. "I try to bring to the audience wildly experimental, eclectic, adventurous, and hard-to-find music, from 'well-known' artists like King Crimson, Yes, or Frank Zappa, to relative unknowns like Magma, National Health, or Änglagård". Dreams Wide Awake is one of many student-run radio shows on WOSP Osprey Radio, broadcasting from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, FL.
