WBOI Blues Host Cooks Up His Own "Blue Plate Special"

Andy Laverghetta
Jack Ankenbruck, host of "The Blue Plate Special," delights listeners with an assortment of blues every Monday night.

If you're hungry for a helping of the blues, WBOI's volunteer host, Jack Ankenbruck serves up a tasty, one-hour portion of it every Monday night on his "Blue Plate Special" show.

Besides being the youngest show host on 89.1 WBOI, with the newest addition to the station's weekly musical lineup, Ankenbruck is also the only one to produce his show "long distance," while he pursues a music career from his current home in Nashville.

As WBOI's Julia Meek continues to take her monthly looks "Behind the Mic," she caught Jack, last time he was in town, to discuss the mechanics of such an ambitious endeavor, and the music-centric passions that drive him.
