Radio Show: Island Time Radio Show
The Island Time Radio Show first aired in January of 2000. It is the longest, continuous running, Trop Rock show. 17 years on air, and counting.
The award winning show is hosted by Dennis King (DK the DJ). The Island Time show will take you on a 3 hour vacation, even if its just in our minds!
The show is a great mix of “Trop rock” music by independent and established artists. But you may be asking, “hey DK, what the heck is trop rock”?? It may not be in Websters dictionary just yet, but let us try to define it for you.
TROP-ROCK (TROP-ROK)- A mixture of rock-n-roll and country music blended with an island style theme and lyrics. See also Buffettesque, and Caribilly.
In the Island Time “musical gumbo” you’ll also hear reggae, soca, calypso, beach music, surf instrumentals, tropical jazz, celtic rock and steel drum sounds!
Local Ohio / Put in Bay acts are often featured. Artists like Pat Dailey, Alex Bevan, Bob Gatewood, Chuck Cornwell, Junkanoo Brothers, Mike “Mad Dog” Adams, West Side Steve, KD Moore, Jonah Koslen, Koz Kozminski, and Ray Fogg. Many of these acts are live studio guests from time to time.
