Cool Tunes

Cool Tunes is a radio show in a magazine format Saturday nights at 10pm ET on WAPS, “The Summit,” in Akron, Ohio. I play new music, reissues, and preview shows coming to town each week. Musically it is among the widest-ranging 2 hours in the country: modern rock, punk, electronica, jazz, reggae and ska, roots rock, Americana, blues, world, funk, hip hop, avant garde, etc. – if it’s cool I play it. Our audio streaming is better than ever. Check us out from anywhere in the world.
