After hours, broadcast students from Nova Southeastern University man the station, under the name Radio X.The music format on WKPX was originally Top 40, but they altered their format in the late 80's to primarily Techno, Alternative and Punk rock, among a wide variety of genres.In 2002 WKPX went to an Audiovault system, in which the DJ portions were pre-recorded in advance, and the music is played from a computer. The station also changed its music focus to the more popular Alternative and Punk formats.Programming on WKPX included Not Real, which focused on alternative rock with comedy; and Halon 121, a Heavy Metal program, billed as the longest running show in WKPX's history (1982–2003).However, during 2005–2007 WKPX showcased its most popular show "Breakfast with Frankenstein" which has gained a cult following.
