Cultural Studies
> > U of C's student radio station, WHPK 88.5 FM, aims to entertain and educate through a spicy variety of broadcasts rarely heard elsewhere on the dial. Students and other Hyde Park residents host and run more than 80 programs per week (150 total) for aural delight , including:

Pure Hype
On Fridays from 9 to 10:30 p.m., this music program delivers live performances from today's newest rock bands in the Chicago area-before they reach the mainstream.

Belizean Rhythms
In addition to spirited tunes from the Central American country, host Randolph Coleman highlights the rich influences of indigenous Mayan Indian, Mestizo, Garifuna, and Creole cultures through news, viewpoints, interviews, and recipes. WHPK celebrates Belize on Thursday evenings from 6 to 6:30 p.m.

Make Way for Tomorrow
On Monday evenings from 6:30 to 9 p.m., Glen Good, AM'64, and Ryan P. Jackson, AB'99, play their picks of new jazz, from Albert Ayler to John Zorn.

Mostly Dead
Host Daniel Barolsky, a third-year graduate student in musicology, amplifies interpretive "classical" musicians of the past 100 years on Mondays from noon to 3 p.m. He showcases performers who offer different hearings of familiar works, exposing listeners to those who went against the tide to exercise their creative licenses and recreate music.

Chicago Roundtable
U of C research associate David Mingay converses with U of C faculty about their research and discusses public affairs with community activists or politicians. With a smooth British accent, the host takes listeners back to the nationally broadcast University of Chicago Round Table that aired from 1931 to 1955. Mingay conducts in-depth but jargon-free interviews and discussions every other Thursday from 3 to 4 p.m.
