Gretchen Unico joined WYEP in January 2022, but her love for music blossomed at the age of 14 when she discovered The Monkees. Since then, she has been captivated by the unique sounds of the ’60s and ’70s eras. Her fascination with the diverse genres of those decades is fueled by the interesting stories behind the evolution of each music scene. Gretchen’s passion for music extends to vinyl records, of which she started collecting in high school. She relishes the experience of playing vintage albums on her turntable, feeling connected to the history and memories embedded in each record. Through her love for music, Gretchen has opened herself up to a world full of endless possibilities, and she looks forward to discovering more hidden gems from the past.
She is delighted that WYEP’s playlist comprises a perfect blend of vintage and contemporary music. By featuring newer artists alongside the classics, the station offers exposure to emerging musicians while also paying homage to the legends whose music continues to resonate with audiences.
Gretchen Unico is WYEP’s Creative Services Producer & a part-time host on Sundays from 11 AM to 2 PM.
