Adventures in Sound is a free-form show that explores music spanning more than 120 years of recorded sound.

Every Saturday for more than ten years, Dennis Campa has highlighted a variety of music from his collection of 15,000 plus records and cd's. 

Among the sounds you may hear: century old recordings by noted vaudevillians; musical oddities only found in thrift stores; vintage blues & jazz sides; and records made by movie and television stars.

Over the last several years, many local bands have appeared live on this show.  Among the noted musicians who've played live on Adventures in Sound are: Wino Vino, Aunt Ruby's Sweet Jazz Babies, Urban Achievers Brass Band, Bruce Salmon, The Cats and the Canary, Yes Ma'am Brass Band and many more!
