Take Time Out & Catch Up On The 8th Day!

The 8th Day - Catch U.P. on what you missed

Every Saturday on Sunny 101.9 from 9a-10a, this show combines music, creative comedy bits, essays, as well as local, regional and other interviews, and other elements to deliver an multi-award-winning unique experience and perspective that directly appeals to listeners of this unique region we live in.

Lost stories find a place on the 8th Day. Every week we long for an extra day to fit in the things we just don't have time for.

The 8th Day radio show combines local topics, humor, entertainment, and interviews to cover stories often lost by the wayside in an era of scanned headlines and instant commentary. Join Todd Pazz to see what you're missing during the week.
