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.
