About This Program

My music and interview show, A Miniature World, airs the first and third Thursdays, from 10 a.m. until Noon. I’ve been connected with WPKN since 1976.

My musical tastes swerve through Euro-pop, trip-hop, electronica, indie-rock, singer-songwriters. You might hear Icelandic rock, World music, Radiohead, Bjork, Tricky, Kate Bush, Cocteau Twins, The Books, Devotchka, weird cover tunes, Milosh, Stevie Nicks, PJ Harvey, Cat Power, Owen Pallett, Hot Chip, Dandy Warhols, Sarah Fimm, Karsh Kale, La Nouvelle Vague, Moby, Patti Smith, Juana Molina, Peter Gabriel, Aldous Harding, The National, to name a few.

My interviews have included Dick Cavett, David Denby, Harry Shearer, Katha Pollitt, Bert Randolph Sugar, Abigail Thomas, Carl Safina, Matthew Klam, Gretchen Rubin, Tig Notaro, Samantha Irby, and many more!

An occasional feature is “Apes Update” (news about the survival and intelligence of gorillas, chimpanzees, and orangutans).
