Green Wheels: WPKN Celebrates 50 Years With Classic Cars
Think back to 1973. Richard Nixon was in the White House, nobody had heard the Watergate tapes, and the newfangled cassette player was your best bet for listening to music in the car. That was the year I started as a disc jockey on listener-sponsored WPKN-FM, which dates back to 1963. That makes it 50 years old this year and, amazingly enough, WPKN is still on the air, now as a listener-supported outlet but still as free-form and community oriented as ever.
