Wade T. Oberlin

Host, “Last Exit” broadcast Monday’s 6-9 p.m. on WCSU; and KSER 90.7 Everett, Washington.

As a Navy Veteran, Wade T travelled frequently and developed an interest in eclectic music. His passion for all sorts of jazz music; traditional, spiritual, vocal, modern and avant-garde... makes for a wide assortment of music for the ears. Common staples of his show include pieces from Billie Holiday, John Coltrane, The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Blossom Dearie, Archie Shepp, Chet Baker, Bill Evans and relative newcomers such as Sons of Kemet, Kamasi Washington and Matthew Shipp to name just a few. While there is a deep history in jazz lineage, Wade T prefers to let the music speak for itself, for the most part, and provides brief anecdotes and quips to accent the sound.

Wade T. recently moved back to Greene County to be with his family. Wade T served in the United States Military for seven years as a Mass Communication Specialist stationed in Everett, Washington. Wade volunteered in community radio in Everett at 90.7 KSER and 89.9 KXIR as a program host and event organizer. Wade says, “radio is a passion” and he loves the opportunity to be back in Ohio with his family and on-air at WCSU, Jazzy 88.9 FM, Central State University Public Radio in Wilberforce, Ohio.
