Now Playing on KOOP: Channel Surfing - Sundays at 9:00am
Adventures in Sound is a free-form show that explores music spanning more than 120 years of recorded sound.
Since September 2005, host Dennis Campa has highlighted a variety of music from his collection of 20,000 plus records and cd's.
Among the sounds you may hear: century old recordings by noted vaudevillians; musical oddities only found in thrift stores; vintage blues & jazz sides; and records made by movie and television stars.
Many well known writers, historians, deejays, and musicians have been interviewed on the show over the years. A personal show highlight was a phone interview with Dr. Demento in October 2009.
