About Locomote

Locomote Media is a premier, full-service provider of live-on-location audio and video production, specializing in live recording and streaming of music, performances, and corporate events. We partner with musicians, venues, and organizations to capture, produce, and distribute their live streaming content, with broadcast radio and HD video quality.

Locomote Media was founded by Sam Kopper, a 5-decade radio & media veteran. Sam’s very first live-to-air music mix was just over fifty years ago – The Richie Havens Trio live on Sam’s folk music show on WAER-FM, Syracuse University. Richie told Sam a few years later that it was the tape of that live mix that gained Havens his first record label contract resulting in his iconic album “Mixed Bag.”
