Catch the Live Broadcast

Rudy & the Island Girl, the popular WPIB Radio digital radio station, will be broadcasting live from Das Lokal Biergarten at the Goat Soup & Whiskey on Friday evening, May 28th, starting at 6 p.m.

Islanders Rudy Cooks and Christie Ontko have been streaming their show late on Friday afternoons for the last two years. The show is filled with island guests talking about the latest island goings on.

The owner of the Goat, Scott Jackson, and others associated with the Goat will be interviewed by Rudy and Christie. Rudy and the Island Girl are always interesting, creative and funny, but even more so when you’re there seeing them live and enjoying an imported brew, glass of wine or a brat.

The show at the Goat’s Biergarten will be the first of a 14-week series broadcasting live from island businesses on Friday between Memorial Day and Labor Day. If you’d like to host one of the Rudy & The Island Girl shows from your business, you can call Carrie Cavins at (520) 310-5199 for more information.
