Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

It’s time to dust out the air guitar and get ready to rock out to a whole week of WTJU’s signature Rock shows. From April 9th to the 15th, all four departments will come together for an exciting and wild exploration of rock music past and present.

This year’s Rock Marathon lineup is looking particularly groovy – starting with this year’s t-shirt, designed by rock legend Cyril Jordan of the Flamin' Groovies (featured above)! And join Mlle. Spot for her two-hour Groovies retrospective on Saturday, April 14!

Throughout the week, we’ll bring you a bevy of music: Virginia Punk and Houston Rap; Oboe Rock to Flute Rock; Japanese New Wave to Brazilian Psych; and tributes to artists from Nick Cave to The Fall to The Isley Brothers. And for Yo La Tengo fans, Friday the 13th is your lucky day, as Baconfat hosts a 3-hour celebration of the band, featuring guest spots with James McNew!

And please take a moment to renew your support for local, eclectic, non-commercial, quirky-but awesome independent radio WTJU 91.1 FM, lighting up your life with every flavor of music.
