The Playground

unnamed-4

“I've been listening since my 35-year-old son was 2 - we all loved Playground, and I still listen a lot!”

Saturdays 6 AM to 10 AM, Sundays 6 AM to 7 AM

Whether you are a kid or a kid at heart, The Playground has the fun music you’re looking for. Playing the best local, national and international kids artists, The Playground mixes nursery rhymes with classics like “Who Put The Bomp!” From Disney music and theme songs to Grammy-award winning and up-and-coming children’s artists, we come together for a morning of listening fun for the whole family.

Meet the DJ:

The Playground DJ Anthony

Hi, I’m Anthony aka Ant-The-Man! I’m currently majoring in writing, literature, and publishing but working in radio has taken up as much of time as all those subjects and I love them all. Growing up, you could’ve caught me reading Curious George, Captain Underpants, or Harry Potter (and you can catch me still reading those). I was born and raised in Boston, although my family is from the Dominican Republic. I always had an ear for great music for kids with my first CD ever being a Curious George Sing-Along album from Jack Johnson. My favorite songs to play on the Playground (as if I could even pick a true favorite) are songs that fill me (and you listening) with tons of energy; something like Backyard Super Kid from Justin Roberts or anything by the Aquabats.

Aside from radio and jamming out to weird and wonderful music, my other hobbies include writing short stories and reading all kinds of books, with my favorite being comic books. I’m a major movie fan with some of my favorites being Ratatouille, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and Paranorman. My go-to TV shows include Phineas and Ferb and the 60s version of Batman because they can be hilarious, clever, and are endlessly imaginative.”

  • Don't Slack from Anderson .Paak and Justin Timberlake from Trolls World Tour
