We told you earlier this month about programming changes at WFPK, 91.9 FM, Louisville’s public radio music station. Today we’ve learned that the overnight (1 – 6 a.m.) jazz program, the syndicated “Jazz with Bob Parlocha,” has been replaced by something called “WFPK Music Mix,” from 2 – 5 a.m., with a host DJ to be announced.
A repeat of the first hour of the two-hour, syndicated “World Cafe,” which originally airs on 91.9 weeknights from 6 – 8 p.m., will now air from 5 – 6 a.m.
(The new schedule is slightly different on Monday mornings, when “Music Mix” runs from 1 – 4 a.m., followed by both hours of the “World Cafe” repeat).
Program director Stacy Owen told LEO, “I want to give the artists we’ve been developing more airplay and provide consistency throughout the week.”
She does not plan to change the Sunday line-up of jazz shows, which currently runs from 6 a.m. until 3 p.m. (starting with two hours of Parlocha’s program, the last two remaining for him on 91.9).
