Plugged In

2022-01-02T16:04:36-05:00

Plugged In – each month, Jim Motavalli and Don Gibson interview luminaries in the EV world. Believe it or not, I’ve been on WPKN since 1973. Over the years, I’ve served as program director, news director, music director and librarian (I think). There are so few stations left that are not strait-jacketed by rules and enforced formats. At WPKN, each programmer is free to create, across genres. The same freedom applies to our news and public affairs programming. Learn More Listen on Soundcloud Donald E.

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 ...

Mike Zito with host Mike Zito. I first started doing shows at WPKN early in 1973. In a past life, along with Jim Honeycutt, former guitarist for Repairs (they recorded three albums for Motown int the 1970s), and I was the Media Teachers at Staples High School in Westport, CT. We taught TV Production, Independent Film Production, Radio, Audio, and Graphics, and I advised the school’s award-winning radio station – WWPT. It was a great gig!
