More about Rick Petrone

  • FAVORITE THING ABOUT WPKN: The ability to program my own show, the ability to raise money for the station during each fund raising schedule. The ability to meet, work and socialize with great radio personalities who've spent years on WPKN and have ideas which I can learn from and ad to my show. The ability to work again with personalities who worked with and for me at WJAZ.
  • FAVORITE EPISODE: The first show, the interview show with jazz icon Roy Haynes, and the next one which, hopefully, will always be better than the last.
