Many Moods of Ben Vaughn
Sundays 3-4 PM
Ben Vaughn is a man of many moods — and many hats. His show is currently heard in seven markets and is now proud to be part of the Z107.7 family.
As a recording artist, Ben Vaughn has released ten albums to date (including Rambler ’65, recorded entirely in his car). In the world of TV and film, Vaughn created the musical identity for sitcoms That ’70s Show and 3rd Rock from the Sun, and produced soundtrack music for Swingers. Behind the studio glass, he helmed records by artists as diverse as Ween, Arthur Alexander and Los Straitjackets.
But Ben’s first love was radio. And through the years, he has kept a close relationship with the medium, producing segments for The World Cafe, guest hosting on KCRW and frequently appearing as a guest commentator on Fresh Air. Now Ben produces and hosts The Many Moods of Ben Vaughn, a weekly, hour-long eclectic mix of music featuring rock, blues, jazz, folk, soul, R & B, country, bossa nova, movie soundtracks, easy listening and more, all peppered with his twisted musicological slant.
“With Ben’s musical history, it should come as no surprise that his radio show would span the gamut,” says Bruce Warren, WXPN Philadelphia program director. “Each week our listeners are able to hear an hourly mix of artists like The Stooges, Henry Mancini, Merle Haggard and Nina Simone. I mean, come on, where else are you going to hear anything like that? This is truly remarkable radio.”
