Shelf Riot

the new pop library

Shelf Riot is a radio show about music and libraries. Specifically, it's about music available from the Sun Prairie Public Library. Each week, librarian Steev Baker works through a handful of tracks from music of all genres that are available as CDs or downloads via Hoopla.


All episode playlists link to Spotify and contain "explicit" versions of songs. If you don't like the swears, tune in to the radio show on 103.5 in Sun Prairie or listen on their web app. Playlists do not contain any of the host's wonderful banter, either.
