Excursions

Weekdays, 10am -1pm

Like the name suggests, Excursions is a daily journey across musical genres and eras.  Niki Dakota guides listeners through a broad cross-section of the newest music from Ohio, around the world, and everything in between while also spending time with beloved classic tunes.  Each day is an adventure and on Wednesdays, you'll hear the fresh tunes from great artists new and old during the noon hour.  Play for fun and prizes on Thursday Threads, and you can put a song on the playlist every Friday when we spin theme tunes.
