Specialty shows are students’ opportunity outside of the traditional rotation to hand-craft an hour of programming fit to their unique passions and educate you, the listener. Spanning a broad range of topics including Broadway musicals, local music, metal, and worldly happenings, our programming has something for everyone.
Our current specialty shows include:
Book Club (1:00-3:00pm)
Hosted by Zach St. Clair and Jackson Wright from 1-3pm Sunday afternoons. We’ll announce the next week’s album at the end of every show, and then we all (you included, this is your “reading” for the week) listen to it leading up to the show. We listen through it in its entirety during the show and dig into everything the album has to offer. Like your favorite high school book club, but instead of actual reading you get to listen to great albums.
What’s Happening in Your World (4:00-5:00pm)
What’s Happening in Your World is an educational interview show that welcomes people who have an interesting take on things. I love learning and I’m terribly curious– this show is where I feed my love for curiosity. More than anything though, the aim of this show is to provide people with thought provoking conversation as well as insightful and applicable take-home messages. So join me in being curious every Sunday at 4:00, and find out What’s Happening in Your World.
The 5 Songs of You (5:00-6:00pm)
Professor Talk (6:00-7:00pm)
Host, Brennan Flanagan, invites Kansas State University Professors to come on and talk about their research and expertise. Ranging from mountain exploring to poetry, “Prof Talk” encourages the curiosity and learner in us all. Listen live every Sunday from 6-7pm, or listen to any episode on our Soundcloud at KSDB-FM.
