The station also offers a variety of specialty programs, including "Polka Bandstand," "Muskie's Juke Joint" (blues), the Soul Jazz Spectrum (groove and Hammond organ), Northstar Sounds (avant garde), The Latin Essence, The Smart Set (swing and modern swing), and "The German Program."

2011-10-31 13:16:56 what happened to Gary O., host of Fridays 6 - 9 PM? He was the soul and spirit of the station? —daDaDA
Gary O passed away not too long ago. He was off the air and recovering from cancer, but made a re-appearance hosting his show for at least a period in late 2011, or 2012. In this listener's opinion, he was one of the best jazz dj's in the nation, both in on-air style and love, knowledge, and appreciation of the music he shared. His passing is a great loss. Thank you for providing the memorable beginning to so many weekends!
A tribute to Gary O. is at the WGMC site, including a few photos of Gary in the studio. The page says:
"On Thursday November 8, 2012, Jazz90.1 paid tribute to our friend, and Friday evening host for over 23 years, Gary O. We hope you enjoy the program."
