About This Program

A good song is twice the fun! Join WPKN programmers for two days of musical games as we play covers from all genres and the originals that started it all, as we fundraise to support the station and our imminent move to new digs.

This special programming invites deep dives into our archives and takes a look at great songwriting from yesterday, today and tomorrow.

What better way to start the weekend than with a feel-good, kaleidoscopic journey down musical rabbit holes in support of your community radio station, the little station that can, WPKN?

Please join us and please consider donating to what will be our costliest and most ambitious project to date: our move and renovation of our new home in downtown Bridgeport, Connecticut. Don’t touch that dial! 89.5 is the place to be this Thursday & Friday…

I first started doing shows at WPKN early in 1973. It is truly an honor to be back and part of WPKN, now more than forty years! There are remarkable people who have graced our airways (many of which I now think of as family), and listeners who are just as remarkable, and just as much family to me.

Thank you for continuing to listen.

I’m a child of the early sixties who grew up in Elizabeth, New Jersey, a scrappy town that reminds me in many ways of Bridgeport, which has been my home base since 2015. With the help of my two older sisters, we grew up together in the 1960s, the most exciting and adventurous decade for music in our lifetimes.
