WGXC programmers have begun been airing radio shows: so far John Cleater's "1969," and Norman Douglas and Andrew Amerlinckx's "Difficult Histories." That last show and "Tell It Like It Is," which aired this morning, are both part of WGXC's "Morning Show," both in the 10 a.m. hour, where longer material will air. "Tell It Like It Is" is hosted by Christina Malisoff, Allan Skerrett, Sam Sebren, and Richard Roth, and will feature a regular Columbia County events segment from Ellen Thurston. The debut show featured Thurston's event segment, and a similar effort from Sebren covering Greene County events, an interview with Vanessa Baehr ("The Spinstress") of Ouroborus Hoops about hula hooping, a segment about natural gas hydraulic fracturing from Sebren, and a roundtable discussion with the entire group and WGXC's Dharma Dailey about "Democracy Now!" host Amy Goodman's Nov. 4 talk at the Community Theatre of Catskill.

WGXC is making progress toward getting on the air, with a groundbreaking at the tower site in Cairo Nov. 16. Plans now have the antenna hung on the already-existing tower, and the transmitter from Energy-Onix in Valatie installed in the "Equipment Shelter" under the tower the week before Christmas. After a few weeks of testing, WGXC will be on 90.7-FM sometime in January, unless there is a construction delay, or some other problem. WGXC's online radio webstream still contains recordings of past WGXC events, local town meetings, and recordings of local musicians, but, increasingly, also includes the same live programs listeners will soon hear on 90.7-FM. Hosts are learning how to use the studio equipment with their first shows just on the internet. Now, when you tune in WGXC Online Radio at www.wgxc.org, more and more you will hear live programs from WGXC hosts as they figure out how to make radio.
