WRUR 88.5 Different Radio

Open Tunings

Monday - Friday 9AM to 12PM

Rochester mornings get a new taste of music as host Scott Regan introduces you to an eclectic mix of rock, folk, acoustic, and categories of music that have yet to be defined.

Often with guest performances the connections and sounds are uniquely local. Scott's selections are the region's newest habit, so be sure to tune in each day for truly different radio. Voted best radio program by Rochester's City Newspaper.

Music for a Solar Eclipse, Monday August 21, 2017!

On Monday, August 21 a total solar eclipse will darken the skies across the continental United States from Oregon to South Carolina. It's the first eclipse that will be seen from coast to coast in 99 years. The “Path of Totality,” where the sun appears to be completely covered, will be about 70 miles wide. Outside the Path of Totality, many of us will see a partial solar eclipse with only a portion of the sun covered by the moon.

Here in Rochester and the Finger Lakes, we will see approximately 70% coverage of the sun. The partial eclipse will last about 2½ hours, beginning at 1:14 pm and ending at 3:52 pm. The maximum coverage will be at 2:35 pm.
