All of the playlists will be curated from DJ Beam's library, with the occasional guest collaborating on a playlist and joining the discussion in-studio or by phone from across the country. All genres are welcome and appreciated, with Rap, Indie, and House/Electronic being the Holy Trinity forming the basis for the show.
