When Steve di Costanzo came to our Storytelling show at Fairfield Museum and HistoCenter more than a year ago he invited us to do a segment on his Monday late night show, and we were quite happy being folded into Radio Base Camp at 11 pm.
When the rapidly growing listenership for WPKN began to request more community involvement for the independent station, the Program Director Ebong Udama picked Dennis Quinn a communications professor at Hofstra and an experienced radio drama buff for a show they folded easily into MouseMuse "Real People, Real Stories," with little cross over but lots of parallel pathways.
We both debuted with a Saturday show. Ours is at Noon. We debuted in December right after Christmas. On January 26. 2013 we aired our second show. The response was heartening, We offered free tickets on the air to the first emailer who defined disorderly conduct in respect to theme for our next show: The Wheels of Justice--Crimes and Misdemeanors on February 7, again at FMHC. See our facebook page for the quote from our radio listener, the first email to pop into the queue. Thanks to the two others who got there, but not first. Thanks to the 3 listeners who signed up on this site to receive our notices.
Storytellers from our archives, Bill Bosch, Ivy Eisenberg, Joe Limone, Blake Schneering can be heard on the www.wpkn.org archives. If you've been a storyteller, you'll be sure to hear one of your tales at some point. We post the program in advance.
New Storytellers or people wanting to be Storytellers should get in touch through our website, and we will surely be in touch.
