Rob Gelles speaks with Gretchen Maresco, registrar of the Hendrick Hudson DAR, about the genealogical research she conducts and the history of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Hudson. Recorded March 30, 2021. Finally, in the latest Hudson Valley Word of Mouth segment, Julia Joern visits Olana, located just outside of the city of Hudson. A living, breathing holistic artistic experience integrating architecture, landscape, conservation, and ecology, Olana was created by Frederic Church (1826-1900). Known primarily as a painter, he was also a world traveller, a family man, and a self-taught architect, farmer, and landscape designer, and Olana is considered his masterpiece and also the crowned jewel of the Hudson Valley.
The show 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, and art on the radio. Unlike shows by individual programmers on the station, the "WGXC Afternoon Show" is considered partially station-run. The Wednesday show calls itself the "Drive-Time Show" and Sunday's is "Li Le, Le Tan."
