At last – a reason to look forward to Monday! DJ Simon puts together a high-decibel mix of garage, punk, psychedelia, indie rock, and other weird stuff to jump start your week. It's a balanced breakfast for your ears, fortified with new finds, old favorites, and under-the-radar gems. Turn it up til it hurts

Swirly gooey post punk adventures, drenched in reverb. Stored in Giant Vats.
A jumble of indie (old and new) tunes to not chill to.
with Murph and Sweet Gabby
A complete depiction of whatever mood of music I am feeling that day. A range from indie to pop to rock and everything in between.
alternative R&B tunes that make you feel like you're dancing in slow motion on the moon

with Maddie McGlinchey
Stream of Consciousness is the place to find bedroom pop jams, with some anecdotes and random musings between songs. Tune in to hear what the inside of my mind sounds like—spoiler: it sounds like a lot of sad indie jams with some alternative rock and random thoughts to keep things interesting.
with Thomas H
From forgotten gems to the latest arrivals, The Holtz Effect is about music that starts a conversation. A cornucopia of alternative and hard rock, jazz, electronica, folk, hip-hop and more provides the soundtrack to song trivia and cultural discussion.
Pop-y rock-y bliss through a female, non-binary and femme-fronted lens. Tunes you'll want to play while curling your eyelashes, roasting a chicken, screaming into your pillow, and dismantling the patriarchy.
What will music sound like when we're living in space? Tune in for jams that channel nostalgia for a green age or that innovate into the future.
with Lucy and Sarah
Lucy’s library tunes + Sarah’s feel-good jams = an hour of punk, pop, alternative, and surf rock bops
i listen to music in my car on the way to the station and then i go on air and we listen to it together
with DJ Ouroboros
Welcome to Low End Theory. If I were to describe the aesthetics of Low End Theory as a musical territory or space, its borders would be provided by doom/stoner/psych metal on one side, contemporary prog and prog metal on another, experimental/electronic/folk on a third, and enclosed finally by the long arc of classic and contemporary post-punk that bends towards dub. The mission of this radio show is to conjure a farrago of heavy sonic fictions of sound, words, and music appropriate and fitting to the heaviness of the times. But fear not, this Low End Theory is not dour or depressing; on the contrary, we seek out the joyful and ecstatic in the acoustic depths of the low end’s vibrating, pulsing heart. And who among us does need some joy anchored in the deep sonority of the low end, especially now?
with Kevin and Chris
Genre-less gems that wander among the fields of zbc rock, folk rock, shoegaze, electric pop, and r&b. Strictly good music from us to you. Enjoy and keep it locked on the Z!

In these confused times isn't it nice to find some relief? Every week, James will try to bring some sense into this crazy world via the radio waves. Look back. Look forward. Seek the truth. Never dull. Always irreverent. Fight the good fight by just sitting back and listening.
