WGXC Morning Show: Jamaica Miles, Radical Fiber
90.7-FM in NY's Upper Hudson Valley and wgxc.org/listen everywhere
Hosted by Tom Roe in Acra.
Saratoga Springs City Court Judge Francine Vero dismissed all charges against Black Lives Matter activist Jamaica Miles this week. She talks with WOOC's Elizabeth Press to react to the news. Plus, the Tang museum in Saratoga is opening a new exhibit on February 3 titled Radical Fiber. It explores the intersections of art and science through the medium of fiber in several surprising and arresting ways. As the museum staff put the finishing touches on the installation this week, Moses Nagel was inside the museum speaking to the staff and artists.
The "WGXC Morning Show" is a radio magazine show featuring 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. Rob Gelles produces the Columbia County history segment "Rob Around The County" and "This Month in History" for the show. Julia Joern produces the "Hudson Valley Word of Mouth" interview segment every Thursday. And Jack Sencabaugh contributes the "Backtracks in Time" segment about local history. 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. At 9 a.m. "The WGXC Daily," with local headlines, weather, and previews of community events, airs. 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.
