WPKN Board of Directors, Long Island Director
Kevin Gallagher likes to dig. Ask him to tell you about his life, and don’t be surprised if he digs up a tale about traveling the world with the Eurythmics or that he’s been digging WPKN since he became a DJ in 1972.
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.
WPKN Board of Directors Library Director
I have been Library Director since August of 2012, and have been dubbed ‘the Anarchivist’ because of my interest in and passion for preserving the future of the WPKN collection. This includes LPs, 45s, CDs, and digital formats.
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.
Since 1999 Chuck has been the volunteer host of radio talk show Emotion Roadmap: Take the Wheel and Control How You Feel on WPKN. He’s a faculty member for the Daniel Goleman Emotional Intelligence Coaching Certification Program.
For as long as I can remember I’ve been listening to WPKN. It’s the only radio station I’ve ever really listened to. And now, to be a new programmer, it’s more than a dream come true. The A-List, (Monday’s 2-6 AM) started with my good friend, and fellow WPKN programmer Vinny, (he hosts the Tuesday morning edition of the show) and I went to the WPKN studio after class one day.
