Radio Base Camp

2022-08-20T10:54:38-04:00

Radio Base Camp is focused on new releases and old gems across many genres but it is heavy on psych, garage, indie, funk and soul, Afro-beats, and world sounds from Jamaica to Morocco. I am particularly interested in playing under-the-radar artists and cult bands The show’s name has to do with my love of mountains, trekking, and climbing. I associate an expedition “base camp” with the similar joy that music brings into my life. Radio Base Camp is on Tuesdays from 7:00 – 9:00 a.m. Music has always been front and center for me. It’s beyond therapeutic. I have fond childhood memories of listening to music on ...

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 ...
