PLAYLISTS* (including 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:

  •   Spinitron (Search by Date on their Calendar to find old playlists. — NOTE: Spinitron’s ‘auto-tracking’ feature for music played on-the-air is not perfect, but…)
  • the WPKN Archives (Searchable by Host, Show, and Date & Time. — NOTE: Shows are available for 2-weeks from date of broadcast.)
  • WPKN Radio 89.5-FM‘s Community Facebook Page (Entered either directly, or as a link on that Page.)
  • 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, and depending on availability, (see a Host’s Profile Page, which can be found from the “Hosts Page“), you may be able to send a message directly to the programmer, or else write to:

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

*NOTE: These are the ONLY ways to find playlist information. The web admin does not reply to playlist requests.
