Music from artists that you probably know, but never get any air time – and leaves you wondering why? All things obscure and strange. Songs that move you and make you think, such as: Pink Floyd, David Bowie to “Guns and Roses,” and “ Alice in Chains.” A wide range of genres played with extreme change ups from one song to the next. Always a surprise with the… “Morning Mental Health,” radio show.”
For people who enjoy, work on and care about Maine’s biggest bay. While relaxing to the natural and human sounds of Penobscot Bay–its waves, winds and wildlife; its foghorns, fishing craft and ferryboats–get your weekly update on the doings of local, state and federal agencies and interest groups grappling with overseeing the bay’s commercial and recreational fishers and hunters, aquaculturists, coastal developer wannabes, and its licensed and unlicensed dischargers.
Hear recordings from recent bay-related meetings and public hearings, interviews with retired and working sea captains and readings from 19th century marine scientists exploring and documenting the state of the bay and the Gulf of Maine before the twentieth century’s mechanized fisheries, petrochemicals and other advanced technology changed them forever. And learn how to become a Penobscot Bay Report radio correspondent!

”I Made You This Mixtape,” with Nate Greenleaf, revives the personal compilation tapes produced by individuals in the 1980′s. Often built upon a theme, the mixtape consisted of songs, poetry, comedy bits, clips from tv shows and movies, whatever… as long as it aided the creator to express what they were thinking and feeling. Usually the mixtape was created with a specific listener in mind. Our program seeks to resuscitate the now lost art of fitting as much sentiment as possible into 49 minutes.
