Our DJ Spotlight of the Week is Berkley! Besides hosting the Progressive Torch and Twang, she has a double major in RCAH and History. Her background adds a unique flair to the show as she can explain the history behind the music- just ask her about the origins of Folk and Americana music. Every Tuesday night from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. Berkley brings you alternative country and folk music. Make sure to tune in!
