Top Ten + Five
Oct 20 @ 10:00 am – 10:59 am

Top Ten + FiveJoin us as we count down the Top Ten + Five songs based on a highly scientific poll of all the customers at the Paradise Bay Coffee  Shop.

Highly scientific?

Well, have you ever seen an unsophisticated person at a coffee shop?  We didn’t think so.  Each week the results of our topical poll are sealed in a mayonnaise jar and buried behind the shop. Then, just before the show they are dug up by a Beaver Island beaver, delivered to our host(s) and presented to you.

Saturday mornings at 10:00 a.m. with an encore presentation Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. on WVBI.

Retro Album Chart Show
Oct 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:59 pm

Retro Album Chart Show

The Retro Album Chart Show is a two hour program featuring album chart tracks from two years for a particular week–say 1969 and 2005. To keep it interesting (some may say challenging), host Titus Jennings alternates tracks from each year throughout the show.  You’ll hear old favorites (perhaps some for the first time in years) and likely discover some new ones as Titus Jennings walks through the charts and  events of the times. It’s not just your parents’s oldies on the Retro Album Chart Show with Tutus Jennings.

Saturday evenings at 7:00 on WVBI.  Feed your soul and your mind.™
