Since 2001, The High Voltage Circumcision show has delivered a full spectrum barrage of dark hard and experimental music from industrial to noise to idm to ebm to bizarre to audio collage often with a side of live guests, social consciousness, interviews, twisted humor, studio experiments and left turns.

The Green Program has been a part of the WZBC schedule for 15 years and is still keeping things fresh! The show features a rotating team of residents with a variety of tempos and styles: techno, trance, house, drum and bass, hip hop and more. The current residents are: Mathwin, Pussywillow, Vizzie, and Kibbles, as well as featuring frequent guest contributors. The Green frequency represents the positive vibrations in the world that join us together in a mystical connection that is beyond our complete comprehension. We are united in our mission to improve the local and global community, one great track at a time.
This show is a place to find girl bands as well as women-led groups that are going against the
expected tradition of alt rock and indie music being a male-dominated space. We highlight a different artist every show by giving some background and then playing some songs by them so that someone may discover their new favorite artist.

You never know what you'll find when you shine the light in the shadows.
Tune in and turn on, and we will trip inwards and outwards, following the light regressions.
It might be aurally exciting too.
