Friday Night Vibes

It's been a hot, sunny day in Bridgeport, and the music has been just as hot. Unfortunately we don't have broadcast licenses for Gregg Allman or the String Cheese Incident. Technical difficulties have prevented us from getting audio recordings from the Green Vibes stage, so we're calling it a night. Such is the reality of live radio. 

We'll be back with you in the morning with interviews prepared by our intrepid field crew, Janet & Zack. Good night, sleep tight, don't let the wookies bite. 

Friday Afternoon Vibes

Hot, sunny, and funky. Unfortunately, we won't be able to broadcast any of the main stage artists this afternoon or evening. (As always, it's subject to artist approval.) We will do our best to get some music from the Green Vibes stage on the air for you. There's been some great music over there. It's also a great location to listen to music—on the water, breezy, and not as crowded and dusty as the main concert field. 

Thanks for your understanding. We'll keep the groovy tunes rolling.

Friday Morning Vibes

After raging the Late Night stage with Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, we settled in for a bit of sleep before coming into the office to do the radio thing again. It's going to be sunny and hot, but not muggy like yesterday.

We have some great music on tap for you again today from the Main Stage.

Thursday night wrap-up

We are off to a good start, with an interesting mix of weather and music. We've had the hot and muggy, and we've had the drenching rain. With skies clearing out, it looks to be a pleasant night in Bridgeport by the Sea. We have one more set of music tonight from Dark Star Orchestra. Melvin Seals is tearing it up on the organ and the crowd is raging.

We'll be back with you Friday morning at 10 am.

Good night, rage tight, don't let the wookies bite.

During the Dark Star Orchestra set break ...

We'll have a live performance from Matt Reynolds in the WPKN studio. Matt is the tour manager for DSO, and recently released a CD of his music. We were thrilled to have him in the studio for this special performance, which includes Matt and a band made up of DSO crew members.
