The Basement

Thursdays 8 P.M. – 10 P.M.

Do you love local music? Are you constantly going to shows and discovering new bands you had no idea lived just miles away from you? Well, you should be listening to The Basement!

The Basement is Impact 88.9FM’s local music show, featuring bands, artists, and entertainers from across the state of Michigan. We bring the diverse sounds of Michigan and deliver them right to your earballs with such vim and vigor it’ll leave you spinning in your non-swivel chair. From the all-out Rock of Detroit, experimental stylings of the west, to the rootsy folk of northern Michigan, the Basement has all your music needs covered. From MSU natives Frontier Ruckus and The Hard Lessons to Detroit greats like Iggy Pop and Jack White, let us soothe that nagging itch of new music and comfort your longing soul for the great Michigan songs of years passed.
