WMPG’s Blunt Youth Radio Project brings together Maine teenagers to produce audio stories and interviews on topics that matter to them. Finished work is aired on WMPG or made available in podcast format.

The young people handle all aspects of audio production: story development, contacting interview subjects, reporting, recording, editing, on-air hosting, broadcast engineering, podcast production, and sharing and promoting finished audio pieces.

Whether youth are participating in Blunt-hosted workshops or long-term audio correspondents, there is room for everyone to be part of our audio team.

Blunt Youth Radio Project is the winner of thirteen regional and national broadcasting awards. Blunt has been on air for 20 years, and our work has aired on various NPR programs, the BBC, Marketplace, and This American Life, as well as many stations around the country through the Public Radio Exchange. Our broadcast can be heard Thurdays from 6:00-7:00pm EST on WMPG-FM, Greater Portland, Community Radio.



Jim- Loved the Eric Burdon show today. As a hippy chick of the ‘60’s it was a great trip down memory lane. You get an A++ for the great background and for answering the timeless ? Of who was the Eggman. LOL


Hey Jim! Enjoyed the last show! Question: What was the band with the two minute drum solo again? The “spinatron” keeps coming up with error. Anyway keep spinning those gems!

Hi. Im John McNairy.
It sure was great to know Skip. I never realized how many records he put out until after he passed. This album , The Best Of Moby Grape is really a keeper. It rocks. The whole album is cool. It;s too bad that he was stuck with mental illness. I was too. We lived in San Jose in a community full of mental patients. However we managed to get through the depression with beer and pot. We were lucky we had a lot of friends and the drop in center which supplied our band equipment. We had a large P.A. system also. Skips guitar playing was fantastic. I recommend this album. I'm very pleased with it. But I surely enjoyed epicenter too. We had a great time on stage. I would sing or Skip would sing or other members would sing. We also would trade off instruments. Sometimes Skip would play the bass or the drums and I would play guitar or bass and sing. What an album this is!!! AnyI’ve now got 20 years of sobriety and 11 years smoke free. Never thought Id achieve this but I did. I now play bass for a church band.

Hi. Im John McNairy. I Was in Skips band Epicenter back in San Jose the late 80’s. I used to run into Skip a lot downtown and we usually put our money together to get us some Malt Liquor. I usually carried a guitar with me so we would drink and take turns playing songs. He was very sharp on that guitar. We dropped in to the recreation center at the church and with the staffs generosity we got equipment to form a band. They all knew about Skips fame of being in Jefferson Airplane and Moby Grape so we auditioned a few guys and had ourselves a Rockin good time. Man was Skip a natural on stage. I had a lot of fun too. Did you know that Moby Grape opened at the Monterey Pop Festival? What a Great guy Skip was……..RIP Bro……….. johnmcairy.


man those two gentlemen on the 4/19 show sound absolutely fantastic!!!
