The Secret City Radio Hour is now The Artlife, with Chris Wells

Re-launching Next Week

For the past nearly-two years, the Secret City Radio Hour has been a weekly radio show on Radio Kingston, the great community radio station out of Kingston, NY. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the show has been off the air for six weeks. As of Monday, April 20th, we’re back with a rebranded show–now called The Artlife, with Chris Wells.

Every Monday, 10pm – Midnight Eastern at AM 1490, FM 107.9, and streaming at .
