Ira Faro

Program Host

World Bop Host Ira was found by Groucho Marx floating down the Nile in a reed basket 3,500 years ago. Flown through time and space by Tardis to south Bethlehem in the 1990s, Ira materialized in WDIY's studios and immediately began playing the blues late on Wednesday nights. Now programming upbeat music from around the world, including American regional music and the blues, to this day Ira's stream of consciousness style retains elements of the language of the ancient astronauts who built the pyramids.
