Expect the unexpected on our descent into the rock 'n' roll maelstrom as we careen through the darkness of the midnight soul...

A unique weekly late night hour featuring unheard music with accompanying context, informative commentary, anecdotes of close encounters in the music world and other frivolous information from host Harry Parmenter, THE FUNHOUSE offers the listener refreshing respite from the onerous onslaught of daily existence. Fiercely free-form with non sequitur musical choices, listeners will find much to choose from in this entertaining hour.
