Also, the Governor has signed the Clean Slate Act into law, making over 2 million New Yorkers eligible for automatic sealing of their criminal records, making it easier for them to access jobs and various services. For misdemeanors, a person has to wait at least three years after serving their sentence and completing their parole or supervision. For certain felony crimes, the wrongdoer has to wait at least eight years. Lukee Forbes of the Hudson Catskill Housing Coalition talks to WOOC's Mark Dunlea about the importance of the new law.

The "WGXC Morning 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 Morning Show" 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" for the show. Gloria and Arielle host the "Las Brujas Bilingues" segment every Monday morning. Philip Grant and Toom 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. Tune in for the "Food Segment" from Tepper B.T. on the second Tuesday of the month. "Nature Calls: Conversations from the Hudson Valley" is hosted by Jean Thomas and Tim Kennelty, and produced by the Master Gardeners of the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Greene and Columbia counties with science-based information about gardening and all things nature in New York's Hudson Valley. It airs weekly on Tuesdays here. The Ag Report is produced by Brendan Donegan and airs on the Third Tuesday of the month here.

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.
