PrivateRadio Host

Sandman has spent a lifetime attending concerts including many in other countries.

A lifetime lived according to his passions - art, music, film, travel, food and wine - led him to WFIT in 1999 and to the creation of PrivateRadio

A belief that listeners are intelligent and open to music they have never heard, and his quest to share every musical discovery inform each show. A deep passion for this medium and what good radio is,

   propels him to spend countless hours searching out artists and bands that might rarely receive airplay otherwise, with a particular emphasis on Britain.

With listeners around the country and some in Europe and Turkey, Sandman is committed to the universality of good radio and great music.

His motto is, "Open your mind, broaden your taste, and turn it up!"

Sybil Gage

Sybil Gage is by far one of the area's best singers. With a musical sophistication not exactly common, her expressions of her influences come through in her music, both obvious and wonderfully nuanced.

On Saturday morning, January 31st at 8 a.m., Sandman returns to his rightful place behind the microphone at WFIT Broadcast Center.

Tune in and enjoy this fresh new edition of PrivateRadio on WFIT, 89.5 FM "on the dial" and steaming live at

Dear listeners, following are my best of 2013, and what I call favorites of 2013 – albums that are very good and deserving of repeated listening, but didn’t make the best of list. All I heartily recommend for your personal private library.

Great listening, and have a music-filled 2014!

Favorites of 2013 (but not quite “best of”):

10. British Sea Power’s “Machineries of Joy
Rock ‘n’ roll and soundscapes in one.
