About This Program

Join WPKN for a two-day special on June 24 with Summer of Love Disco and June 25 with Summer of Love songs! You know that special song that screams IT’S SUMMER!!! to you. The one you played over and over while you got your summer groove on. We’re going to share it with the world!

As we are seeing an end to the pandemic restrictions, the Summer of Love special will kick-off several unique opportunities for you to help position WPKN for a sustainable future in our new location. Check out our WPKN MOVE giving opportunities.

Special thanks to Martha Willette Lewis for supplying the Summer of Love artwork, and to Liz Squillace of Paradox Ink for screen printing the amazing shirts.
