All Together Now!: Jewish Voice for Peace, Youth DSA, Palestinian Rights Committee
90.7-FM in NY's Upper Hudson Valley and wgxc.org/listen everywhere
Produced by many contributors.
A crowd of 250 chanted for a ceasefire and liberation of Palestine at a peace rally at the State Capitol on Saturday, Nov 18. The lead organizers were Students for Justice in Palestine and the UAlbany chapter of Youth DSA. Protestors braved chilling winds to support the call for an end to the assault on Gaza by Israel. Speakers in mixtures of grief and anger condemned both the genocide taking place in Gaza and the US role in financing and promoting it. The groups marched to Congressmember Paul Tonko's office to demand that he support a ceasefire. Last week, more than 100 protestors staged a die-in and a reading of the 10,000 killed in Gaza, many children. Speakers represented the Palestine and Muslim communities, Jewish Voice for Peace, Youth DSA, the Palestinian Rights Committee, and many others. Reported by WOOC's Mark Dunlea.
"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 email@example.com.
