Serendipitous Compendium

On Wed from 04:00 am EST to 06:30 am EST

The Serendipitous Compendium is a show hosted by John Stanford that is full of art, music, poetry, stories and interviews covering whatever’s interesting. The music is chosen by an algorithm that dives deep into John’s collection to bring to the surface things that haven’t been played either ever or in a long time.

Every week our resident art historian Dr Geoff brings us an artist to learn about, one of our group of creative writers brings us a story, and obscure and magical music is played.

If you’d like to contribute some of your creative writing, it’s very easy. Just head over to for simple instructions. Remember; nothing lewd, libelous or lascivious please!

If you’d just like to say “Hi!” drop me a line at I’m quite friendly.

Get cozy, grab a drink and join us on WMPG 4 am Wednesdays why don’t you?

If you want to figure out what I played, you can find comprehensive playlists right here.

Hi I loved the music played between 5:30 and 6:00 AM on Wednesday, June 7… The 5-6 songs before Pink Floyd. How could I find out what artist(s) that was? Thanks!

Thank you for your brave and beautiful show this morning… 1.16.19
And… thank you for playing my song for my brother, Dave.
I hope that you liked it too.
Here’s to all the songs that lift us… and that ease our pain. Be well, my friend
