Sometimes morning comes way too early. Clear the cobwebs and start your day on the right foot with Rise & Shine on WDVX. Freddy Smith will help you ease into your weekdays and Charlie Lutz will get your Saturdays started right. Rise & Shine is a whole lotta bluegrass with a little bit of classic country thrown in for good measure.

Join us every Tuesday at 8:15 a.m. EST for world class bluegrass with live recordings. Then on Thursday mornings at 8:30, Freddy is joined by Erin Donovan to chew the fat about some community events you won’t want to miss.

Every weekday at 8 a.m., Freddy is ready to amuse you with all nature of things that make you go hmmm.

Rise & Shine airs mornings Monday through Saturday, from 6 until 9 a.m. EST.
