Welcome to the Internet home of the XL II 90 Live Music Radio Hour. The show brings you live-recorded music played with passion and skill each week. We are proudly part of community radio, broadcasting on WORT 89.9 FM out of Madison, WI every Friday Night from 12 AM to 2 AM CST.
Hosted by Nufone Rick, the show covers all genres and he is totally unafraid to play the long tracks. We bring you coverage of the live music experience, from news of upcoming live music events in Wisconsin and the region to interviews with bands and others who help bring you the music we all love.
We took our name from a preferred format of the ’90s tape-trading scene. The show seeks to bring people together around a love of live music and this website celebrates live music fandom. We’ve got setlist for all of our episodes in the Show archive, there are videos of live-recorded music, video recaps of shows, the Cigar Box archive of ticket stubs, and the Closet archive of old band tshirts, and some of the best photos taken from shows over the years. We share our experiences to help start stories about yours.
As the show intro highlights, we’ve got you covered. From the Grateful Dead to Phish, from Prince to the Talking Heads. Aretha Franklin to Joni Mitchell. Miles Davis to Willie Nelson. If you love live music, the XL II 90 Live Music Radio Hour is the right place for you.
Community is a critical part of the live music experience. We love to hear from you! Feel free to reach out on social media or email to tell us what you want to hear on the XL II 90 Live Music Radio Hour. Come make some live-music radio with us!
