INVISIBLE HITS   

SUNDAY 9-10 PM
The Invisible Hits Hour is a weekly specialty program that offers the obscure and re-interprets the common. It is devoted to uncovering tracks, albums, artists and entire families of music left undiscovered by the mass marketplace, the music industry and popular culture. It aims, as well, to cast new light on the over-exposed.

Curt Schieber - who comes to the program with nearly 25 years of experience in the local music community - hosts the program with the help of guest hosts drawn from the local and national industry. Together, they review a selection of new releases and play a track from each.
