Jim James’ radio show premieres Wednesday

Sir Microcosm, a new radio show hosted by My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James, begins Wednesday, 8 p.m. May 9 on 91.9 WFPK. 

Join Louisville’s own James and Dave Givan, longtime friend and former Month of Sundays band mate, as they have a blast exploring the totality of the human musical experience — and create the ultimate mix tape, a press release from the station said.

“Dave and I both LOVE making mix tapes, and dj-ing in general,” said James, “so now we are doubly excited to get to do it all on the air- with our beloved 91.9 WFPK. We want to provide listeners with the totality of the human experience, in a small, easy-to-digest capsule that can be taken audibly once a week. With regular use of Sir Microcosm, we believe that listeners will come to a better understanding of the human experience, and their place in it.”

The show is being taped in Louisville as touring schedules permit.

“Louisville and WFPK are fortunate,” says WFPK Program Director Stacy Owen. “We relish the relationships we’ve developed over the years with the artists in our community. Jim has long been an unofficial part of the WFPK family and now it’s official.”

WFPK is community-owned and operated and is part of Louisville Public Media.
