The Friday Morning Set usually kicks off with Buddy Rich and then evolves into classic fusion and experimental sounds to still hold the “overnight” feel, for the first hour. Thereafter, new releases and current sounds follow as day breaks and through the rest of the show. New Orleans artists' are always a fixture along with different sets of Brazilian, Afro Cuban, organ, brass, etc. sounds rounding out the show. The music features upbeat rhythms complimenting a great way to start your weekend along with current events in the community.
