Digging in the DirtDigging in the Dirt with Kevin Gallagher.

The show is comprised of four parts:

  1. Digging World Jazz airs from 4 to 4:55 pm.
  2. At 4:55 pm, become Earth-aware with the weekly feature “GaiaGram environmental headlines from around a planet in crisis.”
  3. At 5 pm “Digging in the Dirt” is a half-hour long. Guests on “Digging in the Dirt” are Climate Change experts and activists, promoting organic and regenerative farming techniques, showing the way to grow healthier food in a way that respects the planet’s health. In addition to nationally known movers and shakers in this niche, Kevin loves to feature food authors, local farmers and gardeners pushing the envelope by encouraging us to take personal responsibility, as consumers and gardeners, toward the environment on our properties and urban lots. These guests give us methods, ideas and recipes for creating a better environment for people, our children, animals, insects and the plant life of our planet’s ecology — one backyard at a time.
  4. From 5:30 pm to 6:50 pm, Tasty Music Picks brings an eclectic mix of music drawn from a myriad of genres.

You can’t go wrong listening to Kevin, on the air, on the phone, or perhaps on one of his nearly 100 podcasts.

Kevin Gallagher likes to dig.

He especially enjoys digging in places he’s never dug before because he never knows what he’ll find. To know Kevin is to know he likes to share his treasures, whether it’s the garlic he dug out of the soil or the music he pulls up out of WPKNs musical well or a new ecological film he has invited all of WPKNs tribe to come and see. Kevin has evolved over the years into a world-class digger, although he’s not so much into ditch digging.

Do yourself a favor and tune into Kevin every other Monday from 4 p.m. -7 p.m. (The other Monday belongs to Pete Stewart). You may not know what music he’ll be digging in to, but you can bet there’ll be something old, something new and definitely something blues. And just when you don’t want the music to stop, he’ll introduce you to this week’s “Digging in the Dirt” expert, whom he’s dug up from his dynamic network of farmers, scientists and authors – all with very important things to say.
