Welcome to Brendan Hogan's website.
Thanks for visiting!
Brendan Hogan has been a part of the Boston radio scene for more than 20 years. Beginning while a writing student at Emerson College, he hosted Bluesology on WERS, and from 2002-2009 he helmed the popular Blues on WGBH.
In Fall 2011, WUMB invited Brendan to develop a new Saturday night music program, and Dark Was The Night was born. Focusing on blues, roots, and songwriters, the four-hour show spanned the history of recorded American music.
The spring of 2012 saw Brendan also hosting the 7-10pm slot on weeknights at WUMB, and in July 2015 he became the host of The Morning Show, broadcasting every Monday through Friday from 6-10am and streaming live at wumb.org.
In 2018, Brendan was asked to create, produce, program, and host a new blues music camp for adults to join the existing roster of annual WUMB Acoustic Music Camps. In 2021, he began producing and hosting a series of quarterly seminars for WUMB, exploring aspects of American culture in the 20th century.
As a singer-songwriter, Brendan has released two albums, Long Night Coming and SilverQuick. He is currently earning an MA in American Studies at UMass Boston.
