Lovers of local music and radio, rejoice.
Though a void was left when, after three decades on air, WNKU played its last broadcast in September, a relatively new player (among a field of several) has stepped in hoping to pick up where the beloved local music powerhouse left off.
INHAILER Radio, a volunteer-run, community-based, online broadcasting platform, set up its Over-the-Rhine studio on Sycamore Street last May and just recently announced a new slew of programming and updates—including involvement from some well-known names from the WNKU roster.
Listeners can once again hear the familiar voice of DJ: Matt “Sledge” Waller, formerly at 97X WOXY and WNKU, who is the newest member of the INHAILER team. Like old times, you can catch Sledge every Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. broadcasting modern rock and some of his beloved ‘80s new wave.
INHAILER also recently teamed up with Herzog Music (where—in its prior life—artists such as Hank Williams Sr. recorded hits) to launch the new podcast “Lost On The River.” The podcast features Aaron Sharpe (formerly of WNKU), Elias Leisring (of Eli’s BBQ), and Bill Furbee (of the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation). The show will explore Cincinnati’s music history, the impact on its present day, and will look at the overall current state of music in the Queen City.
Also check out INHAILER’s newest specialty program United Waves, featuring jams from around the world every Sunday from 7 to 9 p.m.
The broadcaster has on-air DJs from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., each weekday, in addition to specialty programming.
