Nick DiBiasio

Roots Host

Against The Grain, 7-11pm, Wednesday

Nick DiBiasio’s passion for music began on the evening of Sunday, February 9, 1964, when The Beatles made their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. Just one month before his 10th birthday, Nick bought his first record album, Meet The Beatles, and the rest, as they say, is history. In February 1994, Nick was invited to be a guest DJ on Providence classic rock station WWRX for the 30th anniversary of The Beatles’ first appearance on American television, and 2 years later he became a full-time radio host.

Nick started working with WICN in 1996, initially filling in once or twice for David Ritchie who at the time was hosting Against The Grain on Friday and Saturday evenings. Later that year Nick took over the Saturday edition of Against The Grain. In early 1999, when WICN expanded its night time roots programming, Nick took on a second night, and hosted The Contemporary Café, a show that featured traditional and contemporary folk music, on record and live in the studio. Over the years, several local and international artists have sat in the studio with Nick, including Eric Andersen, Bill Morrissey, Jon Pousette-Dart, Orleans, Peter Tork of The Monkees, Linda Ronstadt, Mark Erelli, Ellis Paul, Annie Gallup, Amy Correia, Michael Smith, Christine Lavin and many others have chatted about upcoming concerts, songwriting and recording.
