A Life In Rock

A Life In Rock started on WOVV in September 2015 after I had made many visits to the island…After decades spent as a performer, in Australia primarily, the premise of my radio show is to feature a good deal of Aussie classic rock most of which is unknown to American audiences. That, combined with across the board International classic hits, album tracks and “B” sides makes up A Life In Rock which
emanates from my home studio in Pittsburgh as well as a number of live shows from the WOVV studio
mostly dueting verbally with Tommy Hutcherson, well known WOVV stablemate!!!

Island Morning Mix

“Eclectic as Always” – “The music of the BETTER part of the Twentieth Century” –  “The Hits from the Twenties through the Nineties” … familiar phrases that I use during my WOVV spot, “Island Morning Mix,” Saturdays 8-10AM. I’m one of the veterans here at WOVV and a hopeless Yankee from the Philadelphia area. Yet, I spend about 3 months of each year in Ocracoke. Tune in to see what’s up on Saturday mornings…I think you will be hooked!

Greetings and welcome to WOVV Radio.  As an on air personality-Carolina John- broadcasting each Saturday from 6pm to 8pm, I play a variety of music from swing to modern, with rock from the 70’s and 80’s.  Growing up on Ocracoke, I was a southern rock fan, but enjoyed all styles of music, especially live music.  I have been broadcasting my shows since September 2013 each Saturday evening.   This past year I became a WOVV board member.  I encourage you to tune in and enjoy the shows.

Broadcaster

Every week, LeAnne Astin and her husband/producer Ted choose a show theme based on what’s happening on the island or around the OBX, then put together a playlist of amazing and rarely heard music based on the theme.  From rock to reggae, psychedelia to psychobilly, funk to folk, swing to soul, blues to bluegrass, gospel to glam…show tunes, kids music, parodies and novelties, too…almost anything is on the table.  They also throw in musical history, fun facts, and more than a few bad puns.  It all adds up to a sometimes cool, sometimes strange, but always interesting and eclectic mix.

The Week That Is

I am about an unapologetic assault on the mediocrity, boredom, and conventional wisdom that have come to define contemporary living. I want to call into question the social and institutional inertia that seems to prohibit us living vibrant lives.  I want to aggressively challenge the norms which we’ve carved in stone to create sacred cows and the practices that have no basis in kindness, courage, and love.  Join me each Thursday night as we make this journey on The Week That Is. Oh, my musical taste are impeccable.

Sean Death

Former Broadcaster (Hiatus)

Sean Death spent a couple summers on the air everyday during the lunch hours. Wildly popular with visitors and locals alike, he described his time on the air as keeping the lunch coma away, and played cheesy 80’s, newer alternative, country and requests. It’s been a while since we heard him on the sir, but he continues his support as host of events, board member and tech master!

The Eclectic Blanket

I’ve been doing The Eclectic Blanket on Tuesday from 8-10 pm remotely for a couple of years and my focus is on everything and nothing in particular: on most non-classical genres and featuring songs mostly done after 1960: blues, folk, jazz, country, rock, pop, bluegrass, electronica, soul, disco, new age, punk, new wave, experimental, world music, and anything else I happen to like or have just heard (the primary criteria and I hope you like it). While I’m guilty of playing hits, I try to focus on deep cuts and stuff you maybe won’t hear on commercial radio and always identify the songs and often tell a little bit about them, and sometimes do a theme, when I’m not being totally random and merely following one song with another because that’s what the song I just played reminded me of (I may be A.D.D.). At some point, I may come up with a Classical Music show and start going live in the studio.

Down Creek Blues

Down Creek Blues has been a staple of the WOVV program mix since early 2011.  I play a wide mix of the old time blues performers, the well known greats, and the up and coming blues artists of today.  Sometimes I sneak in a little jazz as well!  You’re also likely to hear me show up in the studio at other random times to play a wide mix of what I like, particularly old rock & roll.  Keep listening!!!
