Vt. man’s ‘Floyd’
show adds station
SHELBURNE — “Floydian Slip,” a weekly Pink Floyd show produced by Craig Bailey of Shelburne, will begin airing on KPAK 97.5 FM in Kiowa, Kan., on Jan. 16.
The station is a 50,000-watt classic rock station serving southern Kansas and northern Oklahoma.
KPAK is the latest to join the show’s Random Precision Radio Network, created by Bailey in 2009, when he began syndicating the show from his home studio. “Floydian Slip” is currently heard 45 times a week on 36 stations in the U.S., Canada and overseas.
Bailey aired his first episode of “Floydian Slip” in 1989 on Ithaca College’s 106-VIC in Ithaca, N.Y., when he was a television-radio major. He also produced it for Burlington’s short-lived WEXP 105.1 FM (Experience 105.1) in 1994, and for 13 years at WCPV 101.3 FM.
In its 20 years, the show has earned mentions in, or served as a resource for, media around the world.
