Zan Agzigian

Soundspace Host

Zan Agzigian is the Community Producer and Host of Soundspace. She has been with Spokane Public Radio since January 2014. Her passions are poetry, the environment, and alternative healing. Zan describes her careers as “a kitchen sink” explaining that she’s worked in a donut shop, bread delivery, public relations, as a bakery manager, a shuttle van driver, a bartender, an office manager, an arts advocate, a counselor, a fraud investigator, and a poet who absolutely loves music of many kinds.

Growing up in a musical family, Zan played the flute and piano and her brothers played the guitar. They exposed her to great music of many kinds and her parents took her to outdoor concerts in Philly growing up. She interned all through high school for the Philly rock station, WMMR, and remains curious about new sounds.

Zan’s goal is to explore and discover these new sounds, offbeat lyrics, spoken word and arrangements and expose a variety of generations to old and new that we rarely get to hear on the air in this region. She hopes to inspire via music from all over.
