Marc Applegate

Announcer/Producer

I am a carbon-based life form from the planet Earth who specializes in making noise. I have been audible since 1951. Early on I laughed, cried and gurgled, then, to the dismay of many; I spent several years talking until I stopped long enough to hear a better way of making noise from the Beatles. Since then I've made noise with guitar, bass and voice. Those noises supported me for many years and took me across the US and to Europe.


My politics are between Woody Guthrie and Phil Ochs and my philosophies have been shaded by Alan Watts, Baba Ram Dass, and The Firesign Theater.


The last decade I've played early blues and rags and, due to limited demand for those, I've had time to make noise on KUNC and share my primary love-music. I like Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Blake, Hot Tuna, The Grateful Dead and kind people.
