7-9pm DJ MC Kat Stratford's Updated Playlist 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) gave us a lot to love, introducing the delightfully pissed-off Kat Statford and her raging music taste. In 1999, Kat was in the riotgrrrl era of alt-rock angry-girl music. 20 years later, pissed-off women and their feminist messages come in many different forms. Tune in for DJ MC's conception of Kat Stratford's playlist in 2019.

9-midnight The Big Waste of Time The Begathon XXIII - Kamen Rider Ryuki Special: 13 Riders (featuring more of the NWW List) Once again, the kidz think they can push "The Don" over the edge by requiring him to beg for money for three full hours, while also playing music from the decidedly weird and difficult Nurse With Wound list. Maybe he'll finally crack this time? They can’t do three hours of Merzbow anymore.
