This weekend, MERLIN MEDIA Alternative WKQX (Q87.7)/CHICAGO will debut a new Electronic Dance Music (EDM) show, called "ELECTRIC PLAYGROUND" The four hour show will air SATURDAY nights at midnight.
Q87.7 PD PJ noted, "EDM is massive. From sold-out, multi-day festivals like ELECTRIC DAISY CARNIVAL and ULTRA MUSIC FEST, to the bright spotlight shone upon it via the PERRY FARRELL STAGE at LOLLAPALOOZA, to the commercial success it's finding in promotional campaigns for things like ESPN's X GAMES, this music is a big part of our audience's life. Adding a show of this type if only natural.
"To achieve this, we've partnered with renowned DJs ANDRE SOLARIS and NOSMO. Both are experts in the genre, have deep roots in CHICAGO, and both are incredibly experienced in bringing this music to a radio audience. Their passion for the music, and our passion for serving this part of our Alternative audience, will give us a show that will be unparalleled in CHICAGOLAND."
