PLAYLISTS* (includes requests for song titles, artists, albums, etc.)

Shows heard on WPKN are created by individuals. The music played reflects the taste, thought, and planing, or impromptu mood, of the presenter: crafted from WPKN’s extensive record and CD library, and the Host Programmer’s personal music collection. WPKN‘s music shows cover a variety of genres. The shows heard on WPKN are never a pre-programmed, algorithmic selected assortment. The choice of playlist dissemination is as individual as the person presenting the show. A programmer might announce what’s played either before, or after a “set.” Some post a playlist in real time on ‘Tweeter.” Others might post a show’s playlist in one of the following locations:

  • the Archives (Searchable by Host, Show, and Date & Time — NOTE: Shows are available for 2-weeks from date of broadcast.)
  • WPKN Radio (WPKN’s Community Facebook Page)
  • Spinitron (Use the calendar and search features to find playlists that are posted. NOTE: not all programmers list playlist this way.)
  • A host’s personal social media site (Look for links on the Host’s Profile Page)

Finally, while not perfect, there are a number of “Song Recognition Applications” (APPs) available for use on a smart device which can be used while listening, or re-listening to a show from the Archives. This is a good thing to have if you like being able to identify the music you’re listening to. (Search the internet for ‘Song Recognition Apps’ to find one you like.)

If you prefer: depending on availability (see: Host Profiles found from the ‘Hosts Page‘), you can send an email message directly to the programmer, or send a written request to:

Attn: [HOST NAME, and/or SHOW TITLE]
WPKN
244 University Ave
Bridgeport CT  06604-7775

*NOTE: Please do not ask the web admin for a playlist. The web admin does not have any playlists.
