About This Program

Valentine's Day Tribute

Jazz Love Songs: An all-day music and fundraising special only at WPKN 89.5 FM and streaming at WPKN.org. No genre does it better, and nothing says, “I love you” like jazz. If your theme for February is romance, the volunteers at WPKN want you to know how they feel: We LOVE our listening audience!

Over the course of the day, we’ll be reading Valentine’s Day Tributes from our listening audience to their loved ones. Donations from this fundraiser will be used for the station operations, allowing our continued success.

I have been on the air at WPKN since September 2018. I am inspired by WPKN in many ways. I am greatly impressed by the immense love all the programmers, volunteers, and staff have for the station. Because of this, our listeners can expect to hear the widest range of programming on radio today.

In addition to our spectacular hosts, above, we want to take a minute to thank our fundraiser tally-keepers, without whose help we would certainly be lost!
