Arts Underground

Arts Underground is like no other public radio show, where we dig in and take an hour to excavate beautiful oddities that lie just beneath the surface, from around the world, and here in the Tennessee Valley. Soak in music from new artists, explore the Valley's local comedy scene, and revel in the rare art from creators living in the Huntsville area who make our community a special place to live.

Hosted by Katy Ganaway, Arts Underground airs Saturday on WLRH from 2-3 PM, or anytime through our podcast.
