With the new fall semester comes new programming for both campus media outlets, VMFM 91.7 and TVMarywood. Run by students, both organizations have fan bases within Marywood and beyond. Anticipated by staff and students alike, the upcoming fall semester has new material sure to please the greater Scranton area.

Punkapalooza, with five seasons under it’s belt, is no stranger to campus radio. From 8-10 p.m. on Sunday nights, alum Chris Maza and current Marywood student, Justin Troutman, play 70’s up until current punk music. Senior Dan Miller’s show, “It Came from the Desert”, also on Sunday nights from 10-12 p.m., is in it’s third year at VMFM.

From 10-12 a.m. on Monday mornings, listeners can tune in to hear the latest sports updates from senior Brian Johnson and junior Sara Cucci. Tuesdays, veteran Mike Evans plays “Vintage Vinyl” from 10-12 a.m. Themed by week, Evans plays older, but certainly not dated, rock songs. Towards the end of the week, a show dedicated Ska runs 10-12 a.m. on Thursdays. Friday from 6-8 p.m., “Tha Louisiana Pit” plays the latest from underground Louisiana hip hop and rap.

“Breaking the Mold,” Marywood’s alternative TV and radio show, is one of the most anticipated shows to return this fall. From 7-8 p.m. on Thursday’s TV programming, “Breaking the Mold” showcases new alternative and indie bands. Friday’s from 10-12 a.m., Christian Wagner will be playing the music from the TV show.

Also, “Scranton Reads”, produced by alum Jason Wolf, is in conjunction with the Lackawanna County Library and Electric City TV. The dates and time of the show will be announced shortly. Along with “Scranton Reads”, TVM News, the student run television show, will be coming back on Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m.
