WGXC Afternoon Show: The Conduction Series, Roger Hannigan Gilson (Audio)

Sep 01, 2023

In the first hour, following the local news, a core group of sound and transmission artists from Boulder (CO), Santa Cruz (CA), Buffalo (NY), Vancouver (Canada), and Buenos Aires (Argentina) come together with other remote participants to create a monthly live radio series using the platform "Mezcal” developed by August Black. For more information, visit And Times Union reporter Roger Hannigan Gilson is interviewed by Tom Roe. Gilson, who covers the Hudson Valley for the Times Union, is making regular appearances on WGXC to update listeners on the stories he is covering.

The "WGXC Afternoon 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 Sunday version calls itself "Li Le, Le Tan." 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. Rob Gelles produces the Columbia County history segment "Rob Around The County" and "This Month in History" for the show. Interview segments from Justin Maiman are often heard on this show, as our movie updates from Jenny Ghetti and Amanda Lees. Interviews by hosts of the "WGXC Afternoon Show" also get played back here occasionally. 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. 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. 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
