Stan Whippo has hosted the live, four-hour classical music show Matinee every weekday on our sister station, Classical 94.1 WBNI, for more than twenty years.

And being in his early nineties, Stan has decided that now feels like the right time to retire.

WBOI's volunteer host, Bruce Grimm, developed a love for music, and local record stores at an early age, and that's what drives his present musical passion every Saturday night.

That's when he and his co-hosts, Brad Etter and George Seymour invite listeners to climb aboard, for a two hour, freeform, eclectic musical mix called "Side Tracks."

To volunteer show host, Bill Forsythe, unwinding for the weekend means serving up a freeform mix of jazz-driven music, which he does, every other Friday night, on WBOI's "Friday Vibe."

Classical music is alive and well here at Northeast Indiana Public Radio, and volunteer host, Stan Whippo has been sharing it in the form of a live, four hour "Matinee," every weekday afternoon on our classical station, 94.1 WBNI for over 20 years.

WBOI's Burnt Toast Show is an eclectic mix of great, non-mainstream musical styles and genres, modeled after freeform radio shows of the '60s and '70s.

It's on the menu every Sunday night from 8:00 to 11:00, served up live by volunteer show host, Todd Harrold.
