JIM JAMES of MY MORNING JACKET and a LOUISVILLE native is set to launch a new radio show on LOUISVILLE PUBLIC RADIO Triple A WFPK. Beginning WEDNESDAY, MAY 9th JAMES will host a show called "Sir Microcosm," along with DAVE GIVAN -- a longtime friend and former bandmate. Their goal is create the ultimate mix tape experience.
"DAVE and I both LOVE making mix tapes, and DJ-ing in general." said JAMES. "So now we are doubly excited to get to do it all on the air with our beloved WFPK! We want to provide listeners with the totality of the human experience, in a small, easy-to-digest capsule that can be taken audibly once a week. With regular use of ‘Sir Microcosm,’ we believe that listeners will come to a better understanding of the human experience, and their place in it."
"LOUISVILLE and WFPK are fortunate," says WFPK PD STACY OWEN. "We relish the relationships we've developed over the years with the artists in our community. JIM has long been an unofficial part of the WFPK family, and now it’s official!"
The show is being taped in LOUISVILLE as touring schedules permit. It airs from 8-9p and will be streamed on wfpk.org.
