Grab your stockings! Carl J. Frano is spinning some great music at his BIRTHDAY PARTY! Come as you are or dress up! There will be a cash bar and a place to dance and a place to just hang out. No gifts please, we'll have birthday cake! WPKN (89.5 FM) is a 100% non-commercial, listener supported radio station broadcasting at 89.5 FM in Bridgeport, Connecticut and formerly 88.7 FM (WPKM) in Montauk, New York. Its volunteer programmers present a wide variety of music and public affairs programming. WPKN can also be heard on the internet as a live audio stream at wpkn.org. Founded in 1963 as the college radio station of the University of Bridgeport, WPKN became independent in 1989. Fun fact: the call letters originally stood for "Purple Knights Network," named after a university sports team!
