New Jazz Hosts
Please welcome Lee Thomas and Greg Bridges as new hosts for WRCJ’s Jazz Overnight from 11p to 5a. Both are jazz experts and musicians (trumpet and drums, respectively) and, for now, will share time with archive recordings from Bob Parlocha, who passed away suddenly in March.

“TWO BY BARRY”
John Barry, that is. Excerpts from two little-known scores for films that, well…flopped. “Raise the Titanic” from 1980—and “Swept from the Sea” from 1997. If you didn’t see the movies (and seriously, who did?) you probably don’t know the music. Here’s your chance.
In an effort to keep kids learning during the summer months, WRCJ has joined Detroit Public Television’s Be Summer Smart Campaign to showcase educational resources and activities that parents and caregivers can do with their children.

CONNECTED LEARNING > EARN A BADGE
As a part of the Be Summer Smart campaign – your child can earn a badge with WRCJ. Connected Learning is a program that allows young people to document their learning outside the classroom and apply their love of technology by collecting electronic “badges” to store in an electronic “backpack.” Learn More >
