An impromptu LIVE radio day at WNJR


There's a buzz of excitement at WNJR today, with impromptu radio shows being hosted throughout the day by our staff and volunteers due to the station's autoplayer crashing late last night.

Carley and Hannah (above, respectively) started the day off with a jazz show featuring the sounds of leading female jazz artists. 

Unfortunately, the syndicated programs "Democracy Now" and "Philosophy Talk" will not be airing today.
Who knows what we'll play next?!
