Four new shows are coming to Baton Rouge Community Radio starting Monday, March 1st. Additionally, two existing local shows are expanding from one to two hours.
Starting on March 1st, on Monday mornings at 7:00am listen to For the Wild, a one-hour weekly syndicated show that describes itself “an anthology of the Anthropocene” and addresses issues like decolonization, ecological restoration, and social and environmental justice.

Also starting March 1st, every weekday afternoon from 3:45-3:55pm will feature COVID NoiseFilter, a program by two medical doctors originating from our sister community station WHIV-LP in New Orleans. NoiseFilter is 10 minutes a day on all aspects of the coronavirus pandemic; vaccines, public health, contact tracing, health equity, economics, school reopening, and much more. This will be right before our current National Native News daily show and our Democracy Now! afternoon broadcast. Learn more at https://anchor.fm/noisefilter.
Friday night, March 5th at 9:00pm will mark the return of The Low Down to WHYR. This one-hour underground hip-hop and rap show featuring local and national artists aired on Community Radio some years ago and now returns weekly with co-hosts Matt Bruce and Marcel P. Black.
The following morning, Saturday March 6th, at 10:00am will be the first expanded two-hour edition of the Louisiana All-American Sports Saturday show. LAAS will be two hours weekly every Saturday morning, with the Arts Council Radio Show moving to 9:30am Saturday and Poiesis moving to two broadcasts a week.
That evening (Saturday, 3/6) will be the premiere of a newly expanded The Ambient Door to two hours, starting at 11:00pm Saturday nights and going through to 1:00am early Sunday mornings.
And finally, WHYR is premiering a new syndicated radio play series, Barnaby Druthers, on Sunday night March 7th at 10:00pm. This half-hour radio drama is a mystery series (think Sherlock Holmes) with all original radio scripts and voiced by professional actors.
