THE NEW AGE is a show created by Hampton for Lumpen Radio which first aired in February 2016 as THE NEW AGE OF JAZZ featuring music from Chicago artists mixed with classic and obscure titles along with occasional guest DJ sets, artist interviews and live on-air performances. In January 2018, the show changed its format to include a theme song and, shortly thereafter, a co-host (DJ KimBuck2).
