There must be uncountable ways to organize a music show. There's genre, era, year, geography, and untold subdivisions these categories. KSKQ features plenty of music shows that use divisions like Classical, Reggae, Jazz, Caribbean, African, or 1980s music. But there one music show that's different. Maya's Mix isn't concerned with genres, eras or geography. Maya Seligman picks songs according to her own method--the theme. A theme may be a single word in the title, "You" or "Fire." It may be a color, a holiday or other special day. It may be a body part or a four letter word. There are really no limits to finding a theme and the resulting music is as diverse as the radio station and as unique as the DJ, Maya.
When Maya Seligman first came to KSKQ in 2008, she was motivated by her nostalgia over her days as a DJ at her college radio station at Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, PA, and the opportunity to support community radio and the larger Ashland community. Her theme-based show is also an outreach effort to her fan base. Using her Facebook group, Maya solicits ideas for her weekly shows. The responses come quickly and span a vast terrain of music. Listeners always discover new songs, new artists and new genres. All her ideas, reflections and insights are collected on her blog Maya's Mix, so there's no reason to miss out on past themes.
Tune in and be surprised every Friday from 2-4 pm.
Rock School is a one hour weekly showcase of classical rock music and little-known facts about the legendary artists featured. Dr. Joe Burns and Chad P team up to host this show. The concept was born in 2007 when Dr. Burns was asked to make a guest deejay appearance with Chad P. The hour went so well that both Burns and P decided to turn their 1 hour of fun into a weekly show. Two weeks later, Rock School was born.
Featuring various bands and singers from the 60's, 70's, and 80's, Rock School travels back to when the music was pure and teaches some not-so-pure things about the artists featured. "I love working with Doc. He's so into it and he knows so much. It's a challenge just to keep up with him, but one I really enjoy," said Chad P. "Their chemisrty together is unreal. You can tell they have a passion for the work they're doing," said Todd Delaney, general manager.
Tune in every Monday night at 11 pm.
