Click on the
Playlists button to bring up a calendar where you can choose any date to find the playlists for that day. If you can’t find the right playlist or the song you’re looking for, your best bet is to call the station the next time that program’s on and ask the host yourself. If that’s not possible we may be able to help you, but please have as much information as possible at hand when you contact us, such as: approximate day and time the music was played, what type or genre of music it was, who hosted the show and any other information you remember about the selection and we’ll do our best to track it down.

We accept submissions in most genres and styles of music, focusing on noncommercial, out-of-the-mainstream, independent releases (check out our playlists and music charts for more information.) It may take up to a few weeks for us to review and process your submission so we appreciate your patience, and feel free to contact us to follow up. Please send your music, indicating any tracks with language that needs to be aired after 10 pm and including a one-sheet description and any biographical and tour information, to WORT Music Director, 118 S. Bedford St, Madison, WI 53703 and/or to musicdirector@wortfm.org.
We do accept digital files on .wav or mp3, but currently we still prefer CDs to digital submissions because it’s the quickest way to get it into the hands of our programmers and onto the airwaves, though we have a growing digital library. Digital submissions should be .wav or other lossless files, or high quality mp3s [128-320 kbps.]
You can follow up or “track” your submissions by email, or call 608-256-2001 on Wednesdays between 1-4 pm CST to ask if we received it, has it been reviewed, has it been added to our library, and what kind of airplay it’s getting—e.g. light, medium, heavy or charting. Thanks and we look forward to hearing your music!

Today on A Public Affair, host Allen Ruff checks in on recent international news, focused on breaking political and environmental stories from Mexico and Haiti. His guest is journalist Maria Abi-Habib, bureau chief for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean for the New York Times.
They discuss several of Abi-Habib’s recent reports, including the Mexican government’s admission of responsibility for the disappearance of Mexican students eight years ago, how the US lax gun laws contribute to the flow of weapons across the border to Mexico, the impact of the drought sweeping large parts of Mexico in addition to the US Southwest, and the escalation of violence in Haiti as the government struggles to curtail gang violence.
Throughout the show are themes of corruption and the role of democracy – and why we here in the United States should be paying attention.
About the guest: Maria Abi-Habib is the bureau chief for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean for the New York Times. Previously, she was based in New Delhi and covered South Asia from 2018-2020, and before that, was a roving Middle East correspondent for the Wall Street Journal.
