The Sandbox
Hosted by: E-Comm
[Variety] Hear WRPI's newest voices before we let them loose on their own! The Sandbox is WRPI's trainee show, where brand new DJs get to play under the watchful eye of their elders. It's like a party in the park, with a lot more good music.

Thought For Food
Hosted by: Nick Demers
Tuesday at 4:00 PM
[Variety] This show is about exploring an eclectic mix of indie, experimental, and electronic music (and beyond)...I usually cover several themes throughout the show, sticking with a particular 'feel' for about 20-25 minutes before trying something new. If you want to hear weird, interesting sounds, tune in!
