All Mixed Up is an eclectic mix of arts and information, featuring mood-driven music mixes and interviews with figures from the worlds of literature, film, television, theater, and the visual arts.

"As the 'Strange Albanian Genius' presiding over All Mixed Up, Peter Bochan plays eccentric pop, exotica, ambient, country, novelty records, basically any genre that strikes his fancy...'he confuses boundries'. At its best All Mixed Up is a non-linear tapestry that is a perfect counterpoint to an often dehumanizing morning."

"...his ability to blend disparate musical strands into one seamless package: One recent segment jumped from Jimmy Durante to Frank Black to the Yardbirds." -Time Out NY...

Named one of the Top Ten Music Radio Programs by The New York Times, Time Out New York, Village Voice, and The Daily News, and known for incorporating current events, politics, and culture into custom-blended montages, All Mixed Up is a long-standing radio destination at WBAI...
