A different kind of live broadcast will be hitting the airwaves this week. Titled “The Odd Friday Hour Radio Show,” the show consists of four college students coming together to create an odd-topic show while playing classic rock songs.
The show will air from Sam Houston State University on Fridays from 3-4 p.m. on 90.5 The Kat.
William King Forney Jr., senior student and marketer for the broadcast, said that the group wants to give an entertaining and comedic experience for everyone in the Huntsville area.
“It’s a show that’s for everybody,” he said. “We just want people to laugh and feel good when they listen to our show”.
Male and female hosts Josh Strokes & Loud Mouth will be capping off the bizarre and weird topics, as well as other stories, that go on during the week at Sam Houston State University.
The hour long show will be broken down into 3 minute topic segments with classic rock music playing during the break.
When asked about what he enjoyed most about creating the radio show, Forney said it was creating the show’s logo and working with his team.
“I feel like we have the best group”, he said. “We work really well together. You can feel it when you listen to the show.”
For their first broadcast, they will be covering the best and worst gifts to give for Valentine’s Day, as well as other topics such as the Super Bowl and the weather.
As for the question of future guests and live call-ins for the show, Forney said that it will be decided at a later date.
“It would be really cool if we could have that in our show because we want to hear everyone’s take on out topics”, he said. “But that’s a maybe for now”.
The show will air for the entire spring semester.
