Over the course of the last 30 years WUGA Radio presented a live variety show that showcased the talents of various performers from the local community. Titled "Once in a Blue Moon", the name suggested the infrequency of the event, with most shows occurring around the stations anniversaries, every 5 to 10 years. However, the success of the show and the talent displayed meant audiences began to clamor for  it to be more often.
