WZQR Gold Special Features

Big Band Remote Broadcasts

From New York to Los Angeles, Chicago to Billings, Montana, the Big Bands broadcast special features nightly from clubs and ballrooms across the USA for more than three decades. The melody lingers on, each day on nonprofit WZQR Gold, “Where the Big Bands play!”


Rewind is one of our most popular daily special features, heard exclusively on nonprofit WZQR Gold at 8:50 a.m. Eastern. You’ll hear audio snippets of events that shaped our history and pop culture across the decades. Rewind is presented by Doris Day Animal Foundation (DDAF.org).

The Breakfast Show

Real-life spouses, Jo and Bill, trade bon mots from 8:00-10:00 Eastern, as they broadcast daily special features on nonprofit WZQR Gold from studios located in a barroom in an imaginary strip mall between the world’s largest Marshall Field’s and the second-largest Woolworth’s.
