Test Pattern

The Feature Artist Hour, Fridays 6-7 pm
Every week a different ZBC DJ programs a one hour "Test Pattern" of music on a specific artist, band, label or scene. The Test Pattern format focuses the extraordinary and diverse talents of the Z's DJs in just one area for a whole hour, presenting an exciting and perhaps hard to find selection from the discography including rarities, live cuts, b-sides and other unexpected items.

Monthly Countdown At Rivergods

The event is held the first Thursday of every month and features a review of roughly the 15 most played songs from the previous month. WZBC guest DJ’s also spin their favorite material before and after the countdown. The event is hosted by WZBC DJ John Straub of the Kraft-o-Matic-Bedo-Nails and it is held at River Gods in Central Square.

River Gods is located at 125 River St., Cambridge, MA. Entrance is 21+ . Free.
