WCSB-FM 89.3

Cleveland State's radio station lives up to its motto: "We eat commercial radio for breakfast." On the weekends, the station meets the FCC's public-affairs dictates with news hours in Hungarian, German, and Arabic. But during the week, it unleashes a lineup of offbeat music fests, such as the "cottage-rocking" Cowboy in Sweden, the quirky Throat Culture Café, and the middle-of-the-night Crap, with your host, Keith. "Horrible music, shady callers, and an even shadier host with an addiction to Frequency Modulation," screams the station's website sarcastically. It even makes its mission clear to students who want to apply for on-air jobs: "We are here to provide an alternative to the crap that passes on commercial radio."
