SPECIALTY SHOWS

The Good Show

Saturday, 9 am to 12 pm


Keep in touch with KTCU’s award-winning magical mystery tour known as The Good Show and your modest-yet-devastatingly-handsome hosts, Tom Urquhart and Chris Bellomy, with friends Tony Diaz and Neil Schnell, and cameos from a cast of thousands of established and up-and-coming Texas artists.

 

The show features the latest in modern rock including the occasional deep cut, classic cut or something completely off the programming map. There’s an added dose of original music, rock and otherwise, from Texas and surrounding areas. Regional artists are also highlighted with regular in-studio visits and performances, often debuting formerly unreleased material. The Good Show’s playlist is updated in real-time during the broadcasts on the show’s official site.

 

Comments and song requests are encouraged on the playlist blog in addition to using KTCU’s request phone line.

Radio Sputnik

Saturday, 12 to 3 pm

 

Like the 1957 Soviet satellite of the same name, KTCU's  award-winning radio show and Saturday staple "Sputnik" is spherical, pointy in parts, and takes about 98 minutes to orbit the Earth on it's elliptical path. This Sputnik sends far more than just beeps back to earth, though—it's playlists boast the latest and best indie rock, unreleased tracks, and tunes from DFW's burgeoning independent music scene, along with requests and hourly updates of local happenings. Tune in to Sputnik each Saturday afternoon and enjoy as your host DJ Janice navigates the musical cosmos to bring you songs and information that you won't hear anywhere else but The Choice.

Fanboy Radio

Fanboy Radio (FbR) is a radio talk show about the comic book industry, its art, creators, and fans. Each week, one hour of comics commentary are highlighted by insider interviews with top creators, news, and live calls from listeners like you. Some of the top names in comics have stopped by the show to talk about their crafts, give their opinions, and offer exclusive news items to FbR listeners. Artists, writers, colorists, letterers, Company Execs, etc, have all found their way onto FbR and it's friendly environment. The world of Indie comics and creators, as well as animation, TV, and film, are also well represented in the FbR show archives.

Consistently breaking, celebrating, and poking fun at the geeky FANBOY stereotype is a staple of the show. From the most die hard fan to the newest of the new...all are welcome. Casual... loose... smart... fun... this is not your father's comic talk show!

Dale Gleitz: Rock Menagerie

Sunday, 7 to 9 pm

 

The Rock Menagerie (Sunday 7pm-9pm) has evolved from its beginnings as an outlet for album tracks to theme-based programming, i.e. each week's music shares a common bond. Past highlights include the annual Halloween Special and the nights where the songs were about dogs, Hollywood or Mother's Day.

 

The music featured on the Rock Menagerie is generally up tempo rock-and-roll songs from 1964 to present, all selected by host Dale Gleitz. The play list includes all genres of rock and roll. On a given Sunday night, you might hear several of these musical classifications: heavy metal, jazz fusion, bubble gum, new wave, stadium rock, novelty songs, comedy bits, country rock, psychedelic, etc.

 

As the only locally produced weekly rock and roll archive show in Fort Worth, the Rock Menagerie airs a much wider variety of rock-and-roll than offered anywhere else. Rock Menagerie is easily the best value in rock and roll variety in the Metroplex.
