Programs

The Morning Show with Brendan Hogan has a strong emphasis on curating the music. We dig into the history and background of artists ranging from Emmylou Harris to Robert Johnson to Joni Mitchell, new, independent, and local music and more. No “morning zoo” antics, just listening to good music, talking and learning about it. We also offer occasional in-studio performances, artist interviews, and special features throughout each show.
