DJ Robert Drake
Robert Drake began spinning the new wave sounds when they were NEW wave sounds, working in various underground clubs in Philadelphia during the gritty era of 1981-1990. From off-radar spots like The Love Club to commanding nights at Philly's premier alternative hotspots The Kennel Club, Omni's and a few special nights at NYC's Danceteria, the Rock of the 80s became his passion.
In 1988, he began a wonderful journey at WXPN-FM, where he's worn dozens of various hats over the past 25 years; including producing Kids Corner; America's longest-running daily radio show for kids. Since 2003, Drake has helped shape Philly's nightlife scene by introducing the New Wave genre to a whole new generation of ears with his monthly Sex Dwarf dance party to hosting Land Of The Lost ; a 4-hour block of the Rock of the 80s on WXPN .. it's all about the music!
And all that love and all that work have rewards: Drake was named 'Best DJ in Philadelphia' and Sex Dwarf the 'Best Dance Party in Philly' by the readers of the Philadelphia City Paper in their Readers Choice Awards.
Additionally, Drake has had the honor to share his unique new wave mix live as the opening act for such icons as The Psychedelic Furs, Gang Of Four, The B-52s, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, The Buzzcocks, and now Modern English!
