Rhythm and Resistance

Rhythm and Resistance airs every Friday 10am to noon on 89.3 FM. The program shares independent music from local, national, and international artists, of soul, funk, jazz, latin, African, indie rock, experimental and ambient. There is always an emphasis on community, as you may hear field recorded speeches from local activists and interviews with cultural workers, artists, and musicians.

While you may hear any of our hosts on any given Friday, the usual schedule is as follows: The first Friday is hosted by Mirtha Josephina and the last Friday is hosted by Lo-Op Radio partners in time, TJ Merritt and Jordan Manley. The Fridays during the middle of the month are hosted by Christopher Hollis and co-curated by community members.
