Del LaPietro
Del LaPietroWPKN Board of Directors Library Director
I have been Library Director since August of 2012, and have been dubbed ‘the Anarchivist’ by a colleague, because of my interest in, dedication to, passion for preserving the past, present and future of the WPKN collection. This includes LPs, 45s, CDs, and digital formats, consisting of 39,000 pieces of vinyl, and 76,400 + CD’s along with countless files being added to the digital archive each week.

As part of community outreach, I have been a Recording Engineer of live shows, have been an Audio Mixer of multiple in-studio performances, and have Stage Announced live bands at various sites throughout CT. I have also been involved with Engineering and mixing live or pre-recorded interviews, doing WPKN tech re-work of two studios, and have been passing on my knowledge of WPKN in-studio, and live remote recording technologies.

I was a Recording Studio technician with CBS Records, Sony Music Studios, and the Hit Factory Studios, in NYC. Curated and participated in multiple open mics throughout NYC, procuring venues in the process. I have also been Radio Technician and Emergency Tower Technical Maintenance assistant for WIZN Burlington, VT. Assisted an integrated team of engineers, installed Vermont Public Radio, in Colchester, VT. Education: ASEE Norwalk State Tech, CT.
