New radio specials feature throwbacks and new music, respectively

Here's something new to sink your Blueteeth into: New radio specials on HLW altRADIO.

Daily from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. (Pacific) tune in for the Midday Back-In-The-Day, three hours of songs that are at least a decade old.

Then daily from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. (Pacific) tune in for Nothing But New Music, two hours of new songs listeners can vote on in order to keep them in rotation.

We wanted to create something fun for listeners which wouldn't require hours of daily prep time. The core of the station will always be a mix of new and nostalgia songs, but focusing on those sounds separately at designated hours seems like the perfect thing to try.

The new specials will be implemented on a trial basis. If things go well they'll be here to stay. Tune in below.

 And for the weekly Humboldt Last Week program featuring "quick local stories," tune in below.
