All Things Considered

Since its debut in 1971, this afternoon radio newsmagazine has delivered in-depth reporting and transformed the way listeners understand current events and view the world. Every weekday, hosts Melissa Block, Michele Norris, and Robert Siegel present breaking news mixed with compelling analysis, insightful commentaries, interviews, and special -- sometimes quirky -- features. Guy Raz hosts a one-hour edition of the program on Saturday and Sunday.

Alpha Rhythms

Alpha Rhythms are patterns of smooth, electrical oscillations in the brain that reflect a transcendent and dynamic state of being. Sunday nights on WYSO, we bring you the music that will transport your mind, inhabit your body, and transform your soul.

The songs span the globe and universe. You'll hear danceable grooves from India and the Middle East and celestial soundscapes ideal for meditation or creative inspiration. It's a sonic journey that takes you to distant and exotic locations and reshapes your musical perspective.
