WOHP on Block Island RI
WOHP has made progress in leaps and bounds during the past year. Created last summer by Ian Larson, the “godfather” of WOHP, who no longer works on the island, the station has grown from three guys in the back of the National Hotel to something resembling a full-fledged Block Island radio station.
DJs Profit, Redbeard, Thomas Two, Johnny True Love, Coach Roach, Somer Nuts, technical mastermind John Dow and contributors DJ Myrin and Allie Saft now run the station out of the renovated Club Soda game room nearly 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“We try to broadcast 24/7, but we all work over 50 hours a week,” said True Love. “We are working on trying to set a schedule, employ some new DJs who can commit to a certain time every week, but we’re not paying; this is people giving up their days off.”
The DJs all work summers on the island, most of them coming back year after year.
