Spirit Matters with Annette Szczesiul airs every third Wednesday of the month  12- 1 pm. Spirit matters is a monthly program dedicated to meditative sitting and making time for quiet and reflection.  Every third Wednesday listeners are invited to enjoy a slowed-down lunchtime getaway of calm.  Each episode Annette will guide listeners through a period of quiet sitting (no religious bent or denomination required) accompanied by beautiful sounds, music, and thought/feeling provoking readings.  Sometimes pre-recorded, sometimes live in the studio, occasional interviews and guests; always going easy and softly and breathing deeply.  A peaceful break from a chaotic world.  Join me! Annette has been with WPKN ...

Radio Something

2022-07-26T21:08:16-04:00

Radio Something with Valerie Richardson airs on the second and fourth Tuesdays, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. My show (which I don’t call Radio Something, but everyone else does) is a mix of very eclectic music, interviews, and a lot of musings about the human condition. WPKN has been an essential part of my life for more than thirty years. I feel lucky to have moved to an area with such great radio after I left college. I grew up listening to freeform radio in northern Virginia, hit the airwaves at university, and found a lot of kindred souls when I became involved with WPKN. Learn ...

Organic Radio

2022-01-27T07:39:06-05:00

In the early 2000's I began doing my radio program, which I call Organic Radio. The name holds a dual meaning for me… I view WPKN to be a living organism and not a formulaic or algorithm-driven venture, like commercial radio or paid streaming services. It's a collective tapestry woven together by the many programmers who cultivate the musical fibers into something artistic and imbued with meaning and a greater significance – so Organic as in living matter. And also Organic, like the practice of farming without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial means. We are small, not factory scale, and like the soil, we aim ...
