Tumble-week Transmissions

Sep 19, 2019

The Labor Day transmission, talking climate change with investigative journalist and Sag Harbor resident James Henry, could not have been timelier, with a tornado touch-down in Manorville that afternoon. Henry informed listeners who want to become more knowledgeable about the topic to seek out the U.S Global Change Research Program’s Climate Report, which is currently available for free at some book stores on the South Fork, such as Sag Harbor Books.

A Week Of Food, Fun, Film and Family

There’s more than a few reasons why I went with “The Heart of the East End” as the name for my weekday morning show at Long Island’s only local NPR station. The first is because it was the best suggestion I’d received from my open call on social media. But also, I’m all about getting to the heart of an issue. It brings me the deepest satisfaction I have known.

From Behind The Mic

Sep 17, 2019

The Artists have beaten the Writers, the equestrians are chasing Sunday’s $300,000 Grand Prix, politicians are playing propaganda games with the Earth’s lungs, and this Southampton disc jockey is somehow successfully holding it together between half-hour interviews and 20-minute naps.

I’m sure I’m not alone in saying Tumbleweed Tuesday — that glorious Day after Labor when the East End traditionally receives a breather from the tourist swell — burns brightly on this brain.

Afternoon Ramble's Featured Album is the debut from The Highwoman featuring Brandi Carlile, Amanda Shires, Maren Morris & Natalie Hemby. The album was just released. 

Click here to see the video for their song "Redesigning Woman." Be sure to listen to the Afternoon Ramble on 88.3 WPPB as we feature songs from the entire album.

We'd love to know what you think of the album, drop us an email brian@883wppb.org

 It’s been nearly 100 days since I became “the new Bonnie Grice,” with big shoes to fill, at Long Island’s only local NPR station, 88.3 WPPB FM, and while I wondered, at first, if my pair of green cowboy boots — a bargain steal from an antique shop that once lived inside Alice’s Greenport Ice House — were of a suitable size, I’ve come to know my potential as intimately as the creases inside of my crinkled kickers.
