When KOSU and The Spy teamed up in August 2012, KOSU station director Kelly Burley said that The Spy was providing "a vibrant venue for music genres that are completely underserved in our state."
With that in mind, The Spy and KOSU will launch three new music shows this week that will either take listeners on a new musical journey every week, celebrate new music and artistic endeavors in Oklahoma, or showcase funk, soul, and afrobeat.
- Everything All at Once Forever - Wednesdays at 7 p.m.
An hourlong program hosted by the legendary Jon Mooneyham, featuring a different conceptual theme each week, and which, as the show’s name implies, draws upon the incredible breadth and history of recorded sound available in the current Age of the Internet.
- State Of The Art - Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
Hosted by Ryan Drake, this is a show about all things new, including a weekly countdown of the top 5 songs that were just released in the last seven days. Some of the best comedians, musicians, artists, and journalists in the state will stop by to discuss their newest endeavors and select which songs they're currently obsessed with.
- Soul Time - Fridays at 8 p.m.
Known for his Soul Time Tuesdays residency at The Blue Note in Oklahoma City, DJ Tom Hudson is building upon his reputation as the "Sultan of Soul" in this weekly show. Soul Time will focus on reissue labels like Numero Group who find amazing little known soul, funk and disco recordings. The show will also showcase African funk known primarily as afrobeat.
As part of the schedule changes, Jon Mooneyham's long-time post-punk show, Millions Now Listening Will Never Die, will now air Saturday mornings at midnight.
We hope our listeners are as excited about these new shows as we are. As always, we welcome your feedback on our programming anytime.
