PLAYLISTS (Includes: song titles, artists, albums, etc.)

Shows heard on WPKN are the creation of a (host) programmer. 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’s personal music collection, and covers a variety of genres. It is never a pre-programmed, algorithmic selected assortment. The (host) programmer may announce what’s played either before, or after a “set.” Some programmers sometimes post a show’s playlist. If so, it is usually, but not always, in one of the following locations:

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’s Profile found from the ‘Hosts Page‘), you can send an e-Mail message directly to the programmer, or send a written request to:
