You never know what you might hear when you tune in to WPKN.
Here’s performance artist Emma Speer on her show Emuse, doing readings and exploring our dreams. Here’s Carl J. Frano, laughing, bopping and singing along to his theme song “The In Crowd” by the Ramsey Lewis Trio as he gives us oldies from the ’50s and ’60s. Here’s “Mystery Girl” (name unknown) hosting her show Shut Up & Listen, in which she “connects with creatives making waves.” Here’s Howard Thompson telling us in his British accent the inside studio stories about rock bands he helped discover and promote from the ’60s to the ’80s (10,000 Maniacs, the Psychedelic Furs) as he plays their known and lesser-known songs. Here are Ralph Nader, Scott Harris and Amy Goodman filling us in on the latest injustices committed by our government. Here’s Chris Frantz, former drummer for the Talking Heads, enlivening his show by interviewing Cindy Wilson of the B52s. And now for something completely different, here’s some Tuvan throat singing. (It’s very guttural.)
