In what appears to be a fairly recent development, Radio 1190's long-running local-centric specialty show, Local Shakedown, which airs on Friday afternoons from 4-6 p.m., has begun posting past shows and playlists on the station's website. Music director Katherine Peterson has also put out a call for fans of the show to submit "sweepers," either short ditties that mention the show or quick spoken IDs, to be played between songs.
