Hosted by veteran radio personality Dave Leonard and&nbsp;based on the unconventional wisdom of early free-form FM radio, Radio Unleashed is a<a href="http://radiounleashed.com/the-poop.html" target="_blank">&nbsp;hand-crafted</a>&nbsp;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.</p><p>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.</p><p>Tune in for a howling good time with Dave Leonard and Radio Unleashed, Saturday mornings from 6-8am!</p><p> Tue, 29 Jul 2014 20:07:12 +0000 WFIT 39127 at http://wfit.org Tune In To Radio Unleashed Debuting This Saturday At 6AM Midsummer's Night Gala To Benefit The Indian River Lagoon, Aug. 2 http://wfit.org/post/midsummers-night-gala-benefit-indian-river-lagoon-aug-2 <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The Indian River Lagoon runs through the heart of our community.
