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

Since September 2005, host Dennis Campa has highlighted a variety of music from his collection of 20,000 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.

Many well known writers, historians, deejays, and musicians have been interviewed on the show over the years.  A personal show highlight was a phone interview with Dr. Demento in October 2009.
