Programming Changes on Delmarva Public Media to Start July 11th
We’ve got some exciting new programs that will begin airing on our three FM stations this week and the time has come to tell you all about them.
WSDL 90.7 FM
World Café (weeknights, 7-9pm)
Saturday Night New Orleans Radio (Saturdays, 9pm-midnight)
Shows Airing at New Times:
Delmarva Today (encore presentation), Now: Sundays at 12pm
No, I Know Podcast, Now: Saturdays at 11am
The big news is that we’re bringing back one of NPR’s longest-running and most revered music programs to our region.
World Café may be produced at WXPN in Philadelphia, but we are giving it a new home at the beach Monday through Friday from 7-9 pm on 90.7 FM. You’ll hear in-depth interviews and great new sounds from established and emerging artists with host Raina Douris.
Additionally, we are adding music programming on Saturday night from 9 to midnight that will take you on a journey to find the first rock-n-roll song in a time that rhythm and blues was king of the airwaves.
Jamie Dell’Apa is the host of Saturday Night New Orleans Radio and this show will be sure to absolutely improve your weekend, sonically speaking.
Finally, two of our locally-produced shows will swap program slots. The encore presentation of Delmarva Today will now air Sundays at noon, while the No, I Know Podcast will air Saturday mornings at 11am.
