KALW is excited to announce KALW@25thStreet, a new collaborative partnership with 25th Street Recording in Oakland. KALW and 25th Street Recording have joined forces to create a new live broadcast and studio home for KALW music, interviews, live sessions and intimate events.
As the station builds on our legacy of music discovery, KALW@25thStreet will bolster the Bay Area’s diverse and vibrant cultural landscape with a new weeknight block of eclectic music from 8pm to midnight Monday through Friday, featuring six dynamic Bay Area DJs. The team of new programmers — the 25th Street Collective — will spin an eclectic mix of music. The block will be anchored by Wonway Posibul, from 8pm to 10pm, Monday through Friday. The 10pm to midnight slot will feature this roster of other Bay Area DJs: DJ Umami, Patrick King Most, LadyRyan, Margarita Azucar, and J Boogie.
KALW has long been a home for music discovery in the Bay Area with its long-running programs such as Tangents, Africa Mix, Music From Other Minds, Folk Music and Beyond, and Revolutions Per Minute. On July 19th, we begin the next chapter that complements KALW’s broadcast home in San Francisco.
