Rob Reinhart's Essential Music

  • Saturday 2 p.m.–5 p.m.

No one knows more about popular music and the magic of radio than Rob Reinhart. “Good radio is now one of the only media that isn’t designed to simply reflect the taste of the user. It’s still a community that brings together lots of different people.” Rob’s version of Essential Music is a three-hour creative mix of old and new, rock and soul, folk and a bit of jazz, thematic elements, humor, exclusive/rare material, from local and national artists alike. It’s quite a feat which Rob pulls off seamlessly.
