Afternoons with Phil Jones

Afternoons With Phil Header

Mondays - Fridays 2 PM to 6 PM

You'll hear new music every day, excellent local bands, and some songs you might already know. Expect no commercials, just a full afternoon of music curated by a host whose deep love and knowledge of music shines through every day.

On Thursdays, we do a dedicated throwback set at 5 pm (appropriately named Throwback Thursday), and Monday's at 5 pm are Live Mix Mondays, featuring songs recorded live at our studio. Whether you're a REM fan itching to discover new tunes, or you want to discover new local bands playing in town - you're in good company!
