If you're a Tucsonan who actually enjoys listening to the radio, your favorite radio station is probably KXCI—but even the most-devout music fan would find it challenging to like every show on 91.3's schedule. Maybe you're really into Al Perry's Clambake, or perhaps Search and Rescue's focus on psychedelic jams from the '60s and '70s would be more to your liking. It's certainly possible the 2 1/2 hours of punk and post-punk that Julio Pena spins starting at 2:30 a.m. (!) on Wednesday might not be your thing, but it should be. Pena is a great curator, and he spotlights music that really should be on the radio somewhere. Plus, any show named after a Fall album is worth checking out at least once.
