Wave Farm - Quotes
Thanks WGXC for spreading the word about my show this week: I got in my car weary after serving beer and books all day, turned on the radio and heard them say "Amy Rigby playing at 8 p.m. this Friday at Avalon in Catskill" and it made me feel like my neighbors have my back. You rule! - Amy, Catskill, NY
I hope you can forgive me if I can't help gushing a little bit - I'm an experimental music nerd, and I can't begin to express how much joy I felt at finding Wave Farm on the radio for the first time while moving here last year. I really couldn't believe it. It made me feel like I was in the right place - its hard to explain, but it made me think, if things like Wave Farm can exist here, maybe I can too. It was not a feeling I was expecting to get from the radio! Haha! The work you do is so appreciated and inspiring so thank you! - Camile, Climax, NY
...We love the amazing content on you guys broadcast! - Jeffrey, Portland, ME.
Absolutely love what's been playing here. Where around here can we hear this kind of stuff? Damn. You guys have me hoppin this eve...totally into this. Thank you. Your station rocks besides the music. - Crystal, Earlton, NY.
You all have become a big part of my life and the soundtrack to many hours of housework, driving,
drawing, journaling and all attempts to hang onto sanity in a really hard time! Thanks for all you do. -
Jenise, Coxsackie, NY
Thank you for everything you've done. It's amazing to live next door to you. - Andrew, Chatham, NY.
I didn't work there. I supported this station from a stationary place. WGXC kept me informed about the world. Every aspect of the human condition existed through WGXC Format. I would like to thank their staff for a job well done. - Mr. Long.
I just moved to Acra from NYC and really like what you are doing. I would love to help out or get involved in some way. - Erik, Acra, NY
Cracking up out loud over here... Loving the stellar funkiness!!! "Once you get used to it, insanity is the most natural thing in the world!" -- or was it "insanity is the most normal thing in the world?" And the story about the woman picking up the radio with her lead teeth during World War II was incredible! As always, Totally yours, WGXC... ❤ - Phoenix, Chatham, NY

Happy to be a supporter (again, this time as a sustaining member)! It's about time I guess, as I listen to Wave Farm every day.

WGXC has been an indispensable resource during this time and I want to applaud your devotion to the community. - Justin, Freehold, NY.

I'm living in San Jose California and I just reconnected with that WGXC and I'm enjoying the Bedazzled Radio Hour and also heard Governor Cuomo's press conference, which I thought was really important. So I'm glad to see you guys are still kicking and still doing great radio, and I've been with you since the days when it was pretty much all experimental and you got a very comprehensive programming situation now which is wonderful. - Phil, San Jose, CA.

I am a new convert to your station. I was tuned into NPR when I heard some good information.right next door on the FM dial 90.7-FM. You have an interesting concept with ‘Wave Farm,’ I get it. We are surrounded by farms up here that produce crops and livestock. Now we have a farm (Wave Farm) that cultivates thoughts and ideas through communication and expression. - Letter from a person incarcerated at the Coxsackie Correctional Facility, Coxsackie, NY
Hello: I had the most enjoyable listening experience on 90.7 fm this past Saturday as I was driving down from VT to NYC. I listened to your station from about 5:30p-7:00p on August 22 (until I lost signal). I was wondering if you might be able to share the DJ's playlists? I loved a lot of the music but nothing showed up on Shazam / Soundhound, and I'd like to try to get some of the records. Anyway, any help would be appreciated. I'm planning on making a small donation to your station as well. Keep up the good work. Hall, New York, NY
A quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed listening to today's Prison Voices Project -- it was one of the most thoughtful and thought-provoking broadcasts I've heard on the station. And on a technical side, extremely well-produced. - Sara, Hudson, NY
A shout out to Sara Kendall and Sam Sebren for today's excellent Afternoon Show, the first hour of which featured a conversation about the new documentary / concert film Dear Governor Cuomo. . This is the kind of programming that makes me proud to be associated with this station and this community. Very nicely done--thanks! - Jim, New York, NY
Can I fnd the playlist for your show from 4 to 6 p.m. on Monday August 10th. That was amazing! Tank you - Robert, Chilmark, MA

Good evening. It’s Saturday evening. Just before 11 o’clock, and I was driving through the area and heard you’re playing old sings. Haven’t heard that song years. So I just wanted to thank you for that. Have a good one. Bye. - Voicemail, Dutchess County, NY
Heard part of your show on WGXC in Hudson, NY today and loved it. I did something similar in my college days. I had a Walkman that could tune in to TV signals. Quite accidentally I tuned it to a station that was supposed to be dead but picked up the howling and buzzing of all the computers and electronics around me in an office supply store. I wandered around for an hour listening to the noise in total bliss. By moving around the store I could change the composition. Finally a manager told me to buy something or get out. I went back at another time and brought a recorder with me and got a few good minutes fo sounds but over the years the tape disappeared. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I’ll definitely check out more of your work. Marc, Facebook
Hello from LA! I've enclosed a donation to help with the fall Pledge Drive, which I hope is on track! You'll be happy to know that WGXC is better than any station out here, too, and I haven't seen many Weather Warlocks around either. I miss you all so much!! Keep up the great work. Jack, Los Angeles, CA
Hello WGXC. This is Medusa calling with kudos on your holiday programming. It’s great fun. Thank you!

I wanted to get in touch to say how GREAT the 60X60 Wave Farm mix is!

Wonderful stuf. - John, Brooklyn, NY

Again thank you so much for making someone’s dream come true. -- Jenna, Oregon
I was listening to Tell It Like It Is this morning with Joel Kovel. Congratulations on an excellent show.

That's what I call success. –Marie, Hudson, NY
I was traveling from Fulton County back home downstate when I happened upon your radio station. I was listening to an audio collage of tRump. I left the listening area before I could finish hearing the whole thing. Can you tell me what show it was and if I can listen to it on a podcast or some type of Replay.? Although I can't stand the sound of tRump's voice and what he says, I thought the piece was brilliant. Thank you. - Lori, New York , NY
I would like to thank you for the many non-bubblegum explorations that your radio station has graced me with. The sounds of inspiration I shan't forget.

Letter from a Coxsackie Correctional Facility Inmate, Coxsackie, NY
I'm enjoying the Transmission Arts programs on Saturdays very much. It's informative, educational, entertaining, mindexpanding exposure to artists whose work usually exists only in an obscure fringe, and we are so fortunate to now have access to these sounds, ideas & projects…. I imagine some kid in our area listening in on Saturdays and becoming very inspired by something they otherwise had no idea was out there! – Sam, Athens, NY
I'm really enjoying this program [Monday Musical Matinee]. Fascinating! Ligeti is one of my favorite composers ever and this is absolutely masterful playing by Mr. Denk, wow. I'm supposed to be outside doing yard work but this show is far more compelling at the moment! Thanks Sheri [Bauer-Mayorga]! –Sam, Athens, NY
I've been in this area for three weeks during which I have been roaming the radio dial looking for interesting and new (to me) music. I came upon The Bangla Show this afternoon right around 4:30 p.m. The music was delightful. I have never heard music from Bangladesh before… Thank you so much for opening my ears to such beautiful music. ‐ Peter, Castleton, NY
It was such a pleasure to have that interview with you. Steve and Walt tell me the radio audience is really appreciative. You raised all the right questions and I thank you and Ellen for for this part of the wonderful events. Your little town is in a magical moment, creative and constructive. Hope it maintains its proportion. I’d love to follow your radio events. Keep in touch. Hope to return to the oysters of Hudson. - Carolee Schneeman (1939-2019) New Paltz, NY
It's very refreshing hearing some intelligent multicellular organisms communicating on the people's airwaves. It's not what I've come to expect from local media. A real evolution of sorts. Especially like democracy now and al jazeera news as well as commentaries from staff. - Rick, Leeds, NY
Just a note to tell you that we love the new Tuesday evening show Radio Warfare with host Tim Livingston It's fantastic ! Only wish it was a more frequent broadcast Thank you for such great programming! - Denise and Rich, Troy, NY

My dad is an inmate at Coxsackie [State Correctional Facility]. I just received a letter from him about stumbling upon your station while his cell mate was having a medical emergency.

He refers to your show as the most exciting musical experience of his 69 years of life. - Shelly, Schenectady, NY

I have never put bumper stickers on my car, but I would put one on to promote WGXC. - Ralph, Valatie, NY
The importance of WGXC is apparent now more than ever, both as an artist who creates something kept at the fringes of our society and as a citizen of this strange place we call Hudson. It was clear to me why we need this station and on a large scale, this organization. - Nathan from Hudson, NY
This station is one of the most eclectic things I've ever listened to! We just spent a long weekend in Chatham, NY and couldn't get enough of everything we heard! We were very confused and entertained the whole time, as we mostly couldn't understand what we were listening to! Really loved the radio from radio show on Saturday! And listening to the guy from Wichita's dad from Olathe explain Hamm radios wassomething we did. Haha! Keep up the good work! Loved hearing the dad and his kids sing do the flop repeatedly. Keep it weird WGXC! - Emily , via Facebook

WGXC is the best thing that's ever happened to Columbia and Greene counties. Steve, Earlton, NY
WGXC is very special. It feels like a onair coop, where the best cookies, veggies and fresh juices are available and everybody knows everybody as they work toward a common cause, cultivating the garden, weeding and watering. The variety is just amazing. That's the image I have anyway. - Brian, Hudson, NY
What a great show! [The Hudson Café] I am almost busting into tears after “I Won't Send Roses.” Fascinating song selections, really great. - Bobby, Craryville, NY
What's my favorite thing about living in Hudson, NY? I know you've been wondering. Tere are so many rare features to this town, and at this time of year I just am driving around snifng out the window to catch all the beautiful smells coming from the woods and gaping at people's gardens and the like. And then there's the art-world, and the best l'il bookstore/bar in the East, and the record store, and the best cofee made by the sweetest men, and the jaw-dropping farmers with their amazing sustaining food. Te hard-working teachers at the school, and the proud craftspeople and workers of all stripes. Te preachers and the nurses. Te most gorgeous herbalist in the world with her nourishing traditions. Te conficted yet generous developers. Te mountains. But my favorite thing, no my favorite thing, no my VERY FAVORITE THING, and listen up all you new people in town in case you don't even know about it yet, is WGXC, 90.7 Hands-on Community Radio in Columbia and Greene Counties. Tere is nothing like it anywhere else that I've ever lived. If you aren't aware that there is an open-source option for utopian cooperative sharing and caring and inclusion of all, free-and-freaky on your airwaves and always there for you . . . turn on your radio. And thank you so much to all who donated to keep it going. Long ride these waves. Rebecca, Hudson, NY, via facebook

Was delighted to discover last week that, although I'm in a dead cell phone area (don't have one anyway, nor a computer or TV) I can receive broadcasts from your station on all three radios in my house, one a very old one! This morning heard Amy Goodman's broadcast, much appreciated... best wishes for continuing success. - Ruth.
For all you've done, for all you're doing, for the cause of peace with justice, for the building of community... Thank you! - Paul and Katja, South Westerlo, NY.
