The Good Show

Saturday Mornings 9am – 12pm

Hosts:  Tom Urquhart & Chris Bellomy

Keep in touch with KTCU’s award-winning magical mystery tour known as The Good Show and your modest-yet-devastatingly-handsome hosts, Tom Urquhart and Chris Bellomy with cameos from a cast of thousands of established and up-and-coming Texas artists.

The show features the latest in modern rock including the occasional deep cut, classic cut or something completely off the programming map. There’s an added dose of original music, rock and otherwise, from Texas and surrounding areas. Regional artists are also highlighted with regular in-studio visits and performances, often debuting formerly unreleased material.

Radio Sputnik

Saturday Afternoons 12pm – 3pm

Host:  DJ Janice

Like the 1957 Soviet satellite of the same name, KTCU’s award-winning radio show and Saturday staple “Sputnik” is spherical, pointy in parts and takes about 98 minutes to orbit the Earth on its elliptical path. This Sputnik sends far more than just beeps back to earth, though—its playlists boast the latest and best indie rock, unreleased tracks, and tunes from DFW’s burgeoning independent music scene, along with requests and hourly updates of local happenings. Tune in to Sputnik each Saturday afternoon and enjoy as your host DJ Janice navigates the musical cosmos to bring you songs and information that you won’t hear anywhere else but The Choice.

Rock Menagerie

Sunday Nights 7pm – 9pm

Host:  Dale Gleitz

The Rock Menagerie has evolved from its beginnings as an outlet for album tracks to theme-based programming, i.e. each week’s music shares a common bond. Past highlights include the annual Halloween Special and the nights where the songs were about dogs, Hollywood or Mother’s Day.

The music featured on the Rock Menagerie is generally up tempo rock-and-roll songs from 1964 to present, all selected by host Dale Gleitz. The play list includes all genres of rock and roll. On a given Sunday night, you might hear several of these musical classifications: heavy metal, jazz fusion, bubble gum, new wave, stadium rock, novelty songs, comedy bits, country rock, psychedelic, etc.
