Thursday the WUSB FUll Power signal will bring you the Halloween edition of Captain Phils Planet featuring Ross Amico!

The Captain and Ross will examine some Classic Halloween music including Renaissance, Bartok and a secret spooky classic list curated by Ross Amico. Prepare to scare as we go over some terrific seasonal music as the Pumpkin Spice flows and the children roam in search of sucrose!

Ross Amico is the host of Picture Perfect which airs Fridays at 8:00 PM and The Lost Chord which airs Saturdays at 7:00 PM EDT.

Ross Amico has been involved in radio broadcasting since 1986. He spent nearly ten years in community radio, after phoning in to a request show and being told he knew more about classical music than the program director. During that time, his shows originated from WMUH Allentown (the radio station of Muhlenberg College) and nearby WXLV Schnecksville (at Lehigh-Carbon Community College).

Currently, Ross can be heard on KWAX (https://kwax.uoregon.edu/) on Saturdays at 7:00 pm for The Lost Chord and Fridays at 8:00 pm for Picture Perfect.
