CUMULUS Alternative WWWQ-HD2 (99X AT 98.9FM)/ATLANTA announces the return of the groundbreaking "SUNDAY SCHOOL" program beginning SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 26th at 9p. Returning with a format that helped define the station in the late '90s, 99X reintroduces SUNDAY SCHOOL, which during the station's heyday was credited with introducing and even breaking many new acts.
"From indie and synth rock to alternative and folk, SUNDAY SCHOOL is about highlighting artists at the forefront of independent music," stated 99X SUNDAY SCHOOL host KURT KRONGOLD. "Music will range from imports and rarities around the globe to those artists right here in our backyard."
Last SATURDAY (2/18), 99X debuted a brand new electronically tinged program, "VOLTAGE," at 11p. The weekly program, hosted by PAT O'BRIEN, features re-mixes of popular songs from the 99X playlist, classic electronica, dance and rock crossovers, dubstep and more.
99X PD AXEL LOWE said, ""99X has always had a history with putting a charge into SATURDAY nights with shows like THE BEAT FACTORY and XCELLERATOR; VOLTAGE takes it to the next level. Electronic music is a huge part of today’s scene and laced throughout most of the new songs we play."
