Thursday’s Early Morning Music with Joel Sachs is a gentle wake up mix of musical genres generally organized around a theme (place, artist, composer, subject matter, etc.)
Joel Sachs, a retired construction laborer, has been volunteering at KPFA since 1976. He has done a variety of programs including a ragtime show, a San Francisco news magazine and a program showcasing live music of many types. He was one of the hosts on the long-running “Music In America” roots music series. He has also spent many years doing tech assistance for live music broadcasts on other shows before taking over Thursday AM’s “Non-fiction Music” and “Early Morning Music” in March 2012.
