The Way Out is proud to be broadcast on the University of Wisconsin-Madison's student radio station, WSUM 91.7 FM, "The Snake on the Lake." The program features a wide range of punk, post-punk, indie rock, garage rock, psychedelica, no wave, noise rock, and other rock’n’roll esoterica. We're drawn to anything that's adventurous, different, and "out there." We've even been known to throw in a set of modern classical, prog, or country from time to time. Mostly, we play “classic” material from the 1960s through the 1990s, though we also frequently mix in newer music that is of a piece with the aforementioned musical genres and forms. Following a "no hits, all the time" philosophy, we emphasize overlooked and otherwise unheard of artists, or lesser-known songs from more popular artists. Most shows focus on a central theme, including different scenes, movements, cities or countries, time periods, et al.

Currently, The Way Out is hosted by husband-and-wife team Andrew and Diana Bottomley. A graduate student in the Communication Arts department at UW-Madison, Andrew is also the editor-in-chief, co-publisher, and co-founder of the independent music and arts magazine Skyscraper. Over the past two decades, he has played various roles in the underground indie/punk rock music scene, as well as worked in film production and archival film preservation and restoration. A schoolteacher by day, Diana is also the managing editor of Skyscraper and a former music publicist. The Way Out began on WSUM in 2006 under Josh Shepperd, who hosted the program for 6 years before turning it over to Andrew and Diana in 2012.
