Local Motives is WMPG’s long-running, mostly-live, always local music show. For three decades LoMo has been nurturing and documenting area music communities with an historic archive representing local music in its many expressions.
If you miss a show it will be streaming on demand for five weeks (see links below).
Local Motives’ monthly schedule is comprised of several versions of the show as presented by different hosts:
*Local Motives Presents Off The Rails: On First Fridays DJs Jai and DRB bring you LoMo Off The Rails, featuring interviews and performances recorded live at Southern Maine venues with artists who make music off the beaten path.
*LoMo Live features live on-air performances hosted by long-time WMPG DJ, host and producer Michael Danahy with occasional co-hosting by Hannah Harleen, Madeline Sanchi and members of local music communities.
*LoMo Live: Final Fridays caps each month with host Michele Arcand’s. Michele has hosted the open mic night at Dogfish Café for 13 years, easily the longest-running open mic in Southern Maine.
*LoMo Overdrive:On those wonderful months with five Fridays we switch it up and you never know what you’ll get for the Bonus Edition. Sometimes it is a themed show with music from the archives and WMPG’s extensive local music library; sometimes it is a deep dive into the work of a particular artist or music community.
