One of the newer members to our broadcast krewe is Jamie Dell'Apa. Jamie had years of prior broadcast experience, so he has fit in nicely. Jamie also helps out in may ways behind the scenes, so much so, that some of us wonder what we ever did before he arrived.
Many of our listeners probably haven't heard Jamie on the air, other than when he does fill-ins, as his show is from midnight until 3 a.m. early Sunday morning. Jamie's approach to doing his show shows his love for the music of many genres. But the thing that really sets apart Jamie's show are his playlists.
In a world where normally you would be happy with the name of the song, the label and the year, Jamie takes it to a whole new level. His playlists are full of commentary as to why a particular song fits into his many theme shows, but that's not all. Also part of his playlists are YouTube video links that relate to the theme or a video performance of the artists or song he just played.
In essence, Jamie gives you the listener as much of the story behind his music as you will find anywhere. There are hours of work easily in each one of his shows, and we just thought that you — our loyal listeners — might want a "heads-up" on the WWOZ "Playlist King," Jamie Dell'Apa.
