Listen to OUT OF THE BOX, Monday through Thursday night from 7PM to 9PM and Saturday from 1PM to 5PM on 89.5 WHRV FM and you'll hear alternative, Americana, blues, reggae, singer/songwriters, Celtic, Cajun, world beat, electronica, local artists and more...all mixed together by Paul Shugrue who will keep you up to date on all the great new music that's being released but rarely played on the radio anywhere else.
"The eagle flies on Friday" and so does “A Shot of the Blues” on WHRV. From 8 to 10PM you’ll hear nothing but the blues including every style from traditional to contemporary, electric to acoustic, from the barrelhouse to the Delta, jump, swing and boogie-woogie, country to urban, be-bop and rockin' blues. Paul Shugrue, who brings you all those great blues sets on “Out of the Box” will bring it on home to you.
Paul Shugrue has been a Virginia radio personality his entire career, working his way up from his "humble" beginnings at the Virginia Tech student station, WUVT in Blacksburg, through Charlottesville, Richmond and finally Hampton Roads. He has been married over twenty five years to his college sweetheart, a Norfolk native and they have two teen-aged boys.
Paul was Program Director and afternoon host of the now defunct adult rock station "The Coast", which pioneered the commercial "AAA" (Adult Album Alternative) format in Hampton Roads. With it's demise, WHRV becomes the only source for intelligent, adult oriented album rock in Hampton Roads.
