KINK Introduces â€˜The Lounge After Hoursâ€™

ALPHA BROADCASTING Triple A KINK/PORTLAND, OR has decided to take its long-running nightly show "Lights Out" and move it to SUNDAY nights only from 10p to midnight. The show features ambient and electronic styles and has been a mainstay since the ‘70s.
In its place, the station is introducing "The Lounge After Hours" in the same weeknight time slot. It features the best selections from the station's Live Performance Lounge archives.
"We have so many great recordings from the KINK Live Performance Lounge from the past four decades that we wanted a place to spotlight them," said PD DENNIS CONSTANTINE of the move. "This is the perfect opportunity to create a show that specializes in acoustic and stripped-down versions of songs people have come to know and love.
"When ‘Lights Out’ was launched, there was a plethora of music in that style being released. As time has progressed, new music in this style has become less available and more difficult to find," he added. "As a fan of the show for many years, this was a very difficult decision for me to make. Ultimately, I decided that the spirit of KINK is to move forward and explore new horizons. I’m very excited about the potential for ‘The Lounge After Hours.'"
In addition to the Sunday-night version of "Lights Out," there is also a dedicated channel to the show on
