biography

Rob Weisberg is the host of Transpacific Sound Paradise, the “peerless world music show” (Time Out New York) heard Saturday evenings on non-commercial radio station WFMU 91.1fm in Jersey City, NJ, 90.1fm in New York’s Hudson Valley and online via http://www.wfmu.org/tsp. The show features recorded and live music, interviews, and remote broadcasts from Barbes, a performance venue in Brooklyn and occasionally other venues. Rob’s obsessively- maintained online world music calendar (http://www.wfmu.org/world) has become an essential resource for NYC metro area world music fans.

Rob has also produced and narrates pieces about music for nationally syndicated radio programs in the US and Canada including Global Village, Pacific Time, The Next Big Thing and Studio 360 as well as locally for public radio station WNYC in New York. He co-hosted NPR’s webcast of the 2009 Globalfest world music festival in New York. Rob also works as a producer and audio engineer for WNYC, and edits and mixes podcasts and web audio for The New Yorker, Nextbook and The Poetry Foundation. Rob has written on world music topics for various publications, most recently Global Rhythm magazine in the US and fRoots in the UK, and he’s been profiled by the Greek national music magazine Difono. And once in a blue moon you might even catch him spinning records in public (most recently at Drom on NYC).
