— Patrick Hallahan, the drummer for My Morning Jacket, shares “The top 10 reasons I love Louisville, Ky. public radio station WFPK.” Read all ten online at Louisville’s LEO Weekly.
I am forever inspired by the passion it takes to drive a public radio station. In the winter of 1999, I experienced what would be the first of many trips to WFPK’s studio. There, in the basement of the old Louisville Public Library, I stood impressed. The studio wasn’t slick, it wasn’t packed with new equipment. But the passion that guided the staff was palpable, and listeners can feel it coming through the airwaves.
