Best Radio Arts Booster (Hillsborough): JoEllen Schilke, Art in Your Ear

Best Radio Arts Booster (Hillsborough)

Though she didn’t host the hourlong newsmagazine about local arts when it began its run on WMNF-88.5 FM in the mid-1980s, Schilke made it her own when she took it over in 1992. Both informed and amiable, Schilke has given publicity to groups and individuals who get little play on commercial radio. Plus, she plays some cool vintage tunes in between the informative features on visual artists, theater groups, literary talents and more. Tune in Fridays at 8 a.m. to catch JoEllen live.
