What's the Frequency, Kenneth? is a "newsical" series from an award winning writer/producer.. who spent 24 years writing for Dan Rather on the CBS Evening News and has now returned to his roots in public radio.

Topics, music and moods vary. Some episodes are time sensitive.

These "newsicals" are subject to the same rules that apply to any other streamed show with music.

After my long stint writing for the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather, I returned to my roots in public radio, to produce a type of radio program that I've not heard elsewhere..

EACH EPISODE IS HAND-MIXED FOR MAXIMUM FLAVOR
