Who we are

Dereck Kalish
Jordan Rich, Dereck and Kay
Kay Patterson


Dereck has been interested in radio since being a little kid walking around with Fisher-Price My First tape recorder and recording “shows” under the kitchen table. Hopefully we will find these recordings some day.


Dereck studied classic piano in college and switched to art school to receive a degree in fine arts with a concentration in sound and sculpture. When
not on-air, during the week Dereck enjoys work in the non-profit arts as a Database Administrator, along with being a part-time Electronics Technician / fabricator for a high-tech design studio.


Along with being the audio engineer for the show, Dereck also enjoys audio engineering for live performances and dances. In his free time he enjoys, occasional gaming, contra dancing, calling for dances, squares dancing, and tennis.



Kay has been interested in talk radio and hosting since she was 6 years old. We still have audio evidence of her earliest efforts as a broadcaster from 1984! Comfortable as a performer, Kay enjoys an active career in Boston as a professional classical soprano and voice actress when she's not on the radio.


Kay has performed choral and solo work with many local ensembles including Longitude New Music Ensemble, Back Bay Chorale, Connecticut Early Music Festival, Peter Freisinger Chamber Orchestra, Harvard Early Music Society, Paul Madore Chorale, Cantata Singers, Ludovico Ensemble, Opera Providence, Helios Early Opera, Boston Modern Orchestra Project and Boston Ballet. She is also a proud ensemble member of Cantata Singers where she served as chorus president for two years. 

When not on the air, Kay helps clients declutter and organize their homes.
