The Personal Computer Radio Show WBAI-FM 99.5
New York City

Bringing you computer industry news, hardware and software reviews, guest interviews and news of User Group meetings for over 30 years, the Personal Computer Show is a three-time winner of the prestigious national Computer Press Awards.

Our co-hosts are Joe King, Hank Kee and David Perry. They talk tech for the first half hour, then we take listener phone calls. The call-in number in the new Brooklyn studio will be 718-780-8800. On any given show, there may be a report from our correspondent Jeff Fox.

There are six ways to listen to the show:

  • The show airs Wednesday nights from 8PM to 9PM ET on WBAI-FM 99.5 in New York City, and is heard throughout the tri-state region.
  • Over the Internet, the show is streamed live at
  • You can can download an MP3 recording of the show at OUR AUDIO ARCHIVES page.
  • You can subscribe to our podcast using the orange XML link at the bottom of every page on this site. The last four shows are always available by podcast. For more see the About page.
  • Shows from the last two months can be streamed online or downloaded at the WBAI archives.

Since the volume of mail we handle is so large, we usually don't respond to email "challenges". Whitelisting does not fully solve the problem because often an answer comes from our personal email addresses, not from the show's official email address.
