For the debut of the new recurring segment "Shaker Show" with Sarah Van Buren, Dana Rasso, and Jerry Grant of Shaker Museum were interviewed by Tom Roe live from the WGXC Hudson studio on Jan. 10, 2024. The inaugural "Shaker Show" guides listeners through the history of The Shakers: who they are, where they come from, and where they are now. This hour cover show they are connected with the legacy of agrarian and communal living here in the Hudson Valley, and also how are they connected to larger social movements of the last two centuries. Shakers were early advocates of gender and racial equality, living in closed, co-ed, monastic communities. They were radically inclusive in these communities, called Families, where every person had a role to play and a niche to fill. Listen in as "Shaker Show" explores this and more!

"All Together Now!" features local news, interviews with community leaders and personalities, a rundown of local and regional events, weather updates, and more about and for the community. The show is a place for a community conversation about issues, with music, and more. Saturday the emphasis is more on radio art, radio news, and art on the radio. Unlike shows by individual programmers on the station, the "All Together Now!" is considered partially station-run. Tune in for local news, interviews with community leaders and personalities, reports on cultural issues, a rundown of public meetings and local and regional events, with weather updates, and more about and for the community, made mostly through volunteers in the community through WGXC. The Catskill Makers Syndicate produce the "Better Weather" on weekdays for the show. Gloria and Arielle host the "Las Brujas Bilingues" segment. Philip Grant and Tom Roe bring you the weekly WGXC Congressional Report, with reports about the representatives and candidates of New York's 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st Congressional Districts on Mondays. Interview segments from Justin Maiman from his "Ginger Radio Hour" are often heard on this show, as are movie updates from Jenny Ghetti and Amanda Lees and their "Dim The Lights" program. Also, tune in for the "Food Segment" from Tepper B.T. "Nature Calls: Conversations from the Hudson ValleyThe Ag Report is produced by Brendan Donegan and covers local farmers and the folks who sell their food. The Month Ahead at Cornell Cooperative Extension with Deven Connolly" previews agriculture-related events there every month. There is also The Month Ahead with Chosen Family Zine" from Mike Amari; an event organizer for Opus 40, Basilica, and others; and Liam Singer; the owner of The Avalon Lounge in Catskill, NY and a member of Wave Farm's Board of Directors. Interviews by hosts of the "WGXC Afternoon Show" also get played back here occasionally. Some reports come from our partner station, WOOC-LP in Troy, out of The Sanctuary for Independent Media. Tom Roe also cuts up local and national news with songs and sounds for the show. The show begins each day with local headlines, weather, and previews of community events. Also tune in for national headlines from the Public News Service on WGXC. Sometimes national, state, or local press conferences, meetings, or events are also broadcast live here. Saturdays the show features weekly episodes of the "I Have Seen Niagara" serial. WGXC is always looking for contributors who have an interesting idea for a recurring segment on either the "WGXC Morning Show" or the "WGXC Afternoon Show." Email your idea to info@wgxc.org.
