From comedians Woody Battaglia, Kara Maillie and Malcolm Whitfield, Almost Tuesday is a comedy and music variety show featuring interviews with artists of all sorts, written and improvised comedy performance, live musical performances, weird characters, experimental audio segments, and thematic threads that listeners can choose to pick up. Almost Tuesday provides Rochester with a snapshot of what's happening in the twin scenes of music and comedy, finding the places where they overlap, and giving opportunities to comedy writers, musicians and improvisers to broadcast their talents to the WAYO listenership. Each week there is a plan for the show, and each week that plan is derailed in the best possible way by whatever is happening in the moment. All of the best things about Almost Tuesday are contained in the ways that the performers confound our expectations in favor of something hilarious and beautiful from a previously undiscovered planet. Almost Tuesday is Written and Produced by Kara Maillie, Malcolm Whitfield, Irene Kannyo, Nicole Oliver, Chris Thompson and Woody Battaglia. Woody Battaglia is your host.

Braden Stewart makes a heartfelt plea against both rodeos and sweatpants! Musical gust John Valenti plays two brand new songs!
