Kevin Gallagher
Kevin GallagherWPKN Board of Directors, Long Island Director
Kevin Gallagher likes to dig.

He especially enjoys digging in places he’s never dug before because he never knows what he’ll find. To know Kevin is to know he likes to share his treasures, whether it’s the garlic he dug out of the soil or the music he pulls up out of WPKNs musical well or a new ecological film he has invited all of WPKNs tribe to come and see. Kevin has evolved over the years into a world-class digger, although he’s not so much into ditch digging.

Good friends know that Kevin will travel far and wide to hear live music, watch a John Garfield movie or enjoy a nice red wine. He’s also comfortable cooking up a mean gourmet meal right in his home kitchen or holding his own with a soil expert, a local organic farmer, or a neighbor about progressive politics. Being a voracious reader of sci-fi and detective novels, he’ll be happy to lend you one but don’t be surprised if he doesn’t let you get away with not returning it.

Do yourself a favor and tune into Kevin every other Monday from 4 p.m. -7 p.m. (The other Monday belongs to Pete Stewart). You may not know what music he’ll be digging in to, but you can bet there’ll be something old, something new and definitely something blues. And just when you don’t want the music to stop, he’ll introduce you to this week’s “Digging in the Dirt” expert, whom he’s dug up from his dynamic network of farmers, scientists and authors – all with very important things to say.

Says Kevin, “I usually know where to begin, but I never know where the week’s events and new musical offerings will take me, which can be quite a surprise.”

Ask him to tell you about his life, and don’t be surprised if he digs up a tale about traveling the world as a documentary producer with the Eurythmics or about his day job as an audio/video independent producer, a legal videographer or that he’s been digging WPKN since he became a DJ in 1972.
