Cat's in the bag is a mixed bowl of nuts at a local pub or the collected pool of sweat in the middle of the floor at your favorite club.The show is based off new music releases and emerging artists. The playlist is based off my current mood of the week, and is an ever evolving set with a heavy rotation that pushes the show's weekly agenda ashore and then steadily fades away to a new tide of music, always in sync with the changing of the moon's cycle. Genres you can expect to hear: Rock, Pop, Electronic, Folk, Blues, Jazz,, R&B, Hip-Hop, and esques of each genre listed.
Programmers of "Foolkiller Folk" want to share the music they love with the rest of the community and share historical aspects of the music also. They want to help broaden our listeners’ knowledge of all kinds of folk music from all over the country, from the pre-war era to now.
