Tuesdays at 6 p.m.
Turn on, tune in and listen local to a weekly hour (60 minutes, get it?) devoted to music from the 816 and surrounding areas. Longtime local music promoter and Middle of the Map Fest organizer Chris Haghirian and The Bridge’s Sarah Bradshaw take a look at what’s filling local venues right now while looking back at some old favorites, host live in studio sessions and talk with some of the people in town that get things done.
Weeknights at 7 p.m.
Host Talia Schlanger presents World Cafe, which features up to ten hours each week of new and significant music and the artists who create it. Serving up a blend of blues, rock, world, folk, and alternative country, live performances, and intimate interviews, the two-hour daily program is produced by WXPN-FM in Philadelphia.
About The Bridge
In 2013, Kansas City PBS acquired the Triple-A (adult album alternative) radio station broadcasting out of Warrensburg, Missouri. While KTBG 90.9 moved down the road the 60-some miles from Warrensburg to Kansas City, the station’s passion for local music, community, and independent voices has remained the same.
In fact, with the power of KCPT behind it, The Bridge has strengthened its commitment to weaving new, rare, and local music into all of our playlists, right alongside familiar hits and classics you know and love. The Bridge connects music lovers with music makers through performances and interviews. As KTBG 90.9, we’re out in the community, supporting the musicians, the venues, the listeners.
Our website brings you local industry voices, breaking music news and national music news. No other station does what we do. And nobody else in town plays as much local music as The Bridge. Period.
Our city is a true original. And so is The Bridge.
