Every week on Saturday Blues you will hear blues songs from the 1930s to yesterday! The show always starts with “Good Times” by Aretha Franklin followed by church music or Gospel songs. All the original blues singers came from the church in one way or another, good or bad.
As Muddy Waters once said, "You get a heck of a sound from the church. Can't you hear it in my voice?" Although it's not blues, the show always finishes with Van Morrison because he loves the blues; and hosts Brother Frank and Father Jay enjoy listening to him. In between, there will be some Robert Johnson, delta and acoustic blues, electric blues, and horns. The whole gamut including a few surprises!
Broadcast on Wednesdays from 10:00 p.m. to midnight, On the Latin Side features a great selection of music reflecting the cultures of Central and South America, the Caribbean and Spain. From Latin Jazz and popular dance styles, to traditional and contemporary performances from established and emerging artists.
On The Flipside is based on the classic AOR/Free Form radio format of the 60's and 70's.

Conceived as a cross between a Sunday newspaper and CBS' Sunday Morning with Charles Kuralt, Weekend Edition Sunday features interviews with newsmakers, artists, scientists, politicians, musicians, writers, theologians and historians. The program has covered news events from Nelson Mandela's 1990 release from a South African prison to the capture of Saddam Hussein.
WFIT's Music at Dusk, with host Sonny Marble, has been on the air since 1975. This show features primarily classical music of the baroque, classical, romantic, and contemporary eras. Listeners will be surprised to hear some familiar tunes they may not have realized were originally classical pieces, and informed by Sonny's wealth of knowledge on the history of classical music.
The Midnight Special is an original, offbeat, fun, and thought provoking radio broadcast. The Midnight Special is Chicago's, and through Internet streaming, the world's weekly aberration of folk music and farce, show tunes and satire, madness and escape.
The Midnight Special often airs live performances recorded by WFMT over the past 55 years that are not available commercially, including well-known artists appearing at Chicago area clubs, concert venues, the University of Chicago Folk Festivals and the comedy revues of Chicago's famed Second City.
Jazz on the Beach is a show that can best be described as "straight ahead" or "mainstream", which means a combination of traditional, small group or big band swing, be-bop ,west coast, etc. It plays some current, or reissued recordings, some broadcast jazz shows of long ago, and some vocals. You might ask "does it swing?" Host Jack Simpson always hopes so!! Jazz on the Beach plays every Thursday night from 7 to 10 p.m.
