- FAVORITE THING ABOUT WPKN: The free format gives each programmer (usually) three hours, to be used almost completely as his own domain, similar to the challenge of freedom provided by the empty canvas. It's up to the programmer to fill this space with enough novelty and seriousness as to keep the listener returning.
