Now that the weather is starting to take a turn for the better, it’s the perfect time to get back outside and get back into the workout zone. We want to help! This weekend, we will be launching two new channels to motivate you, soundtrack your run, and maybe even improve your pace, so that you’ll be ready to run the 9-minute mile.

The Legacy of Riot Grrrl
More than just a musical movement, Riot Grrrl emerged in the early 90s at the intersection of hardcore feminism, underground punk rock, political activism and zine culture. As a movement, Riot Grrrl peaked early, but it’s influence is still being felt today. Our new station features the movement’s originators as well as the artists they’ve influenced. Officially debuting Wednesday, May 6th, get a sneak peek of The Legacy of Riot Grrrl right now!
One of the most unique forms of jazz to emerge in the 20th century was the guitar- and violin-driven swing of Gypsy Jazz, sometimes known as Jazz Manouche. Pioneered by the legendary Django Reinhardt, this style has carved out a large following. If you’ve always wanted to dive deeper than Django, this is the station for you. While this station won’t be available to the general public until Thursday, May 7th, our loyal listeners can preview Gypsy Jazz right now!
