About Blake Kirpes

My name is Blake Kirpes and I am a Music Supervisor at PlayNetwork, with over 12 years in the music industry.

The first real album I had was a cassette copy of “Eazy-Duz-It”, when I was just in grade school…so yeah, that happened.

I have worked in a variety of roles in the music industry, from a live radio host and DJ to an audio engineer, working in studio with bands like Death Cab For Cutie and The Shins. I enjoy pinpointing the right music for the right audience and connecting new artists to their future fans.

When I’m not  researching music (with 30+ browser tabs open) I collect cassettes, vinyl and do this.
