TJ Lubinsky is returning to the airwaves starting Sunday to host a weekly classic hits show on WJRZ-FM in Manahawkin, N.J. But he's not leaving town for the Jersey shore: Mr. Lubinsky will do the show from his attic studio in Pine.

Mr. Lubinsky's "Sunday Night Request Show" will air live Sundays from 7 to midnight and will feature classic hits of the '60s, '70s and '80s and listener requests.

The show will be carried online on iHeartRadio, Clear Channel's digital media platform.

Mr. Lubinsky is best known for his PBS TV music specials. He hosted the radio show on WJRZ from 2005 until 2009, when the station changed format. It flipped back to a classic hits/oldies format in April

Talk show host Tavis Smiley has launched a new online project -- The Tavis Smiley Network (TSN) -- on BlogTalkRadio.

"Tavis Talks" is a live call-in show. Guests include Michael "Wonder Mike" Wright and Guy "Master Gee" O'Brien of the pioneering hip-hop group Sugar Hill Gang, actress/director/screenwriter Helen Hunt and TV/radio host Larry King. Past episodes are available on demand.

Other regular programs on TSN include "Social Media Radio With Beverly Macy," "Informed Not Inflamed," a look at the media hosted by John Daly and "Sundays With Rolonda," hosted by Rolonda Watts, which focuses on relationships and advice.

Fans of the popular CBS TV series "Under the Dome" now have a companion Internet radio channel on, CBS's Radio's online platform.

The "Under the Dome" radio station features playlists designed to reveal more about the show's characters, based on their favorite music, along with interviews with "Under the Dome" author and executive producer Stephen King and series music supervisor Ann Kline.

People who listen to broadcast radio stations online will enjoy the newly launched UberStations site.

It's great for listeners who want to zero in on a station's online stream quickly and for expatriates who want to tune in to stations they miss.

UberStations lists FM and AM radio stations by city, frequency and call letters and provides a direct link to their online stream.

In some cases, it indicates what song is currently being played.

The More Choices button recommends similar stations in other cities based on the listener's choices.

It's similar to TuneIn, a site that links to AM, FM, Internet and HD channels around the world.
