Rude Vibrations / Time Hard


WLVR 91.3 FM Bethlehem, PA


The Spring Session of Rude Vibrations has ended, and we're probably off the air until the upcoming fall season.  Thanks to everyone who supported the show and the ska!

Greetings Jamaican music fans!  You can access past playlists for Rude Vibrations and Time Hard from this website!  Rude Vibrations brought the listener the best of original 1960s Jamaican ska, late 70s/early 80s UK 2tone, and underground ska from all over the world from the mid 80s to the present.  Time Hard brought the listener rocksteady and early reggae from the mid 60s to 70s, and modern bands who play in an authentic stylee.

Rude Vibrations aired Saturdays from 6am-8am eastern, so set your alarms to wake up to the best (only?) authentic Jamaican ska show in the area!  It
can be accessed worldwide from the web at

Time Hard will unfortuantely be off the air for at least the near future due to circumstances beyond the show's control.  Thank you to everyone who supported rocksteady and early reggae on Thursday mornings!
