Station Announcement

Sound Waves will kick off the Fall Fund Drive in style with a live session with the band SWIMM. The band is on the cusp to break out big time and we were fortunate to have them in our studio. 

Here’s your chance to hear some new songs from their forthcoming album and you can say you heard them first on WFIT 89.5 FM. The live session starts Friday at noon -- don't miss it!

Then, coming Tuesday Sept. 23 at noon, we'll welcome the always amusing Brevard Busking Coalition into the studio to provide some musical inspiration for our Fall Fund Drive.

“Playing the sounds that make your heart pound with the beat that moves your feet,” WFIT-FM will groove to the music on Doo-Wop Soul & Rock'N'Roll hosted by Doctor D on Saturday nights at 6:00 p.m.

Joe Panarello (Doctor D), has been "Playing The Sounds That Make Your Heart Pound With The Beat That Moves Your Feet" for over three decades. Starting out on a small AM station in the 70's near Harrisburg Pa. while in college, Joe went on to non-commercial power house station WBAI FM in NYC doing an afternoon show and engineering for specialty shows.

Joe also worked as a recording engineer at the Brill Building's (NYC) studio. He recorded songs for Del Vikings, Garry Lewis & Playboys, Eddie Day and The NightTimers and more. Later Joe went on to a career in electronics and computer programming. 

An avid record collector for way too long, he is still searching for the illusive rare 45. Joe Panarello will be bringing his show of vintage R&B, Blues, Doo Wop, obscure Rock and vintage Garage music to WFIT beginning on August 8th.

WFIT is excited to welcome radio UNLEASHED to our airwaves Saturday mornings from 6-8am. 

radio UNLEASHED is a two hour journey exploring and extending the boundaries of music. Hosted by veteran radio personality Dave Leonard and based on the unconventional wisdom of early free-form FM radio, radio UNLEASHED is a hand-crafted weekly two hour radio show, exposing and presenting new and unsigned artists from all genres within a familiar framework of old bones and guilty pleasures.

This program replaces the popular Big Surf Show with Danny Morris as Danny takes time off to concentrate on his work, family and band. WFIT thanks Danny for his long time dedication and wish him all the best.

Tune in for a howling good time with Dave Leonard and radio UNLEASHED, Saturday mornings from 6-8am!
