Cliff Furnald airs on Thursday Mornings, 7 to 10 AM — As democracy fades, Cliff plays music. New music. Old music. Local music. Music that is local somewhere else. Wherever you are, there you are. It might be jazz. It might not be. Might be folk, could be avant-garde. Rock music? Why not? It’s most unlikely that it will be opera, but you just can’t be sure. He will idly chatter from time to time, as well. But don’t worry, it never lasts too long. You can find out more about what you hear on the program at RootsWorld.

You can expect to hear Soul, Singer-Songwriter, Funk, Jazz, Country, Blues, Classical, and anything that sparks my interest when preparing a playlist. I have been on the air at WPKN since September 2018. I served on the Board of Directors as the Treasurer, and I volunteer for special committees when needed. I am inspired by WPKN in many ways. Most of all, in the way WPKN allows its programmers the freedom to explore and take full control of their show’s content. I am greatly impressed by ...

Sometimes Classical with Richard Epstein. Since 1977, Richard has explored a wide range of music and sound on his show “Sometimes Classical”, which is often decidedly not classical at all. A dentist by day, he is a classically-trained professional musician, a bassoonist and saxophone player, and founded a jazz club in his hometown of Westport, CT. Mixing the sounds of Mingus, Mahler, Mink Deville, Miles, Mozart and Moby might be followed by Pygmy field recordings or cartoon music. Interviews, live performances, and whatnot pepper the tossed salad. It’s like a game of aural solitaire that somehow retires the deck. Since 1977, Richard has explored a wide range ...
