Frank Zappa Memorial Day Meltdown

Bob Chamenko does it again!

The Frank Zappa Memorial Day Meltdown makes its annual appearance this Friday May 28 at 7pm AND 11:30pm!! The six and a half hour special will run from 7pm to 10pm and 11:30pm to 3am with a 90 minute public affairs break from 10pm to 11:30pm. The annual dose of ZAPPA will be presented by Bob Chamenko with special guests (& Zappa experts) Johnny "the Rod" Curotto & Dave "the Crusher" Kisyk. The massive FZ Special will include music from all aspects of Frank's career and will feature Zappa interview material as well as frequent readings from various Zappa books. Enlightening and entertaining, the Frank Zappa Memorial Day Meltdown should provide a great start to the holiday weekend. "Just add water, makes its own sauce!"

Note: the music will be interrupted from 10:00-11:30 p.m. for some crappy Pacifica programming.

Tune in to WPKN 89.5 FM Bridgeport, or online.

A sad day for local radio: WPKN ditches Montauk-New London signal

After five years as a regional broadcaster covering the I-95 from Stamford, CT to Westerly, RI,  WPKN has given up its Montauk frequency and will no longer broadcast on 88.7 FM. Today at 12:00 noon, Hamptons Community Radio will assume control of the signal. WPKN will be heard no more on the East End of Long Island and east of the Connecticut River.

Dear Bloggy

Dear Bloggy,

I know, I've been neglectful. That thing with Facebook, that other thing with Twitter—believe me, they meant nothing. You have always been my first, my only social media true love. I promise I will be more attentive, more authorly in the future.

Yours always,
