WGXC Afternoon Show: Theo Jean Cuthand, Katherine Adams, Kathy High (Audio)

May 22, 2024

During the 5 p.m. hour, Tom Roe is joined over Zoom by Theo Jean Cuthand, Katherine Adams, and Kathy High to talk about two events coming up at EMPAC and Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy. At EMPAC on May 29, Cuthand presents an artist talk and screening that explores his work and process through an Indigiqueer lens. On May 30 at Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, Cuthand offers a Be The Media! participatory radio workshop with an emphasis on his methods of film and game production with a particular focus on Indigiqueer and ecological issues.

Theo Cuthand makes short experimental videos and films about sexuality, madness, Queer identity, love, and Indigeneity. An intimate and playful storyteller and performer, the artist often foregrounds autobiographical experience and his home territory of Saskatchewan, where he is a member of Little Pine First Nation, to explore the resonating effects of the ongoing processes of colonization on land and climate, his communities, and the body. His rangy and irreverent moving image works span experimental documentary and fiction, archival footage and hand-drawn animation, and DIY aesthetics.

Katherine Adams is a curator at EMPAC and Kathy High is curator of iEAR Presents!.

Tune in “WGXC Afternoon Show” for local news; interviews with community leaders and personalities; reports on cultural issues; a rundown of public meetings, local, and regional events; with weather updates and more about and for the community, made mostly through volunteers in the community through WGXC. The show begins each day with local headlines, weather, and previews of community events.

The "WGXC Afternoon Show" is considered partially station-run with Saturday’s emphasis being on radio art and art on the radio and Sunday’s show is called "Li Le, Li Tan," which focuses on promoting Haitian language, music, arts, and culture.

Segments featured on the show include "Better Weather” on weekdays produced by the Catskill Makers Syndicate, "Las Brujas Bilingues" produced by Arielle and Gloria, "Food Segment" by Tepper B.T., "The Ag Report" by Brendan Donegan, and "Nature Calls: Conversations from the Hudson Valley” 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. Also featured are the segments "Specific Objects: Talks on Art in the Catskills" hosted by Miriam Atkin, "Cool Katts: Some cat-tastic and meow-mazing music" by DJs Electro Kitty and Meow Meow Kitty, "The Conduction Series," and the quarterly "Shaker Show" produced by Shaker Museum.

Tune in for previews of upcoming interesting events in the Hudson Valley with "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. And for previews of agriculture-related events, tune in "The Month Ahead at Cornell Cooperative Extension with Deven Connolly."

Also featured are movie updates from Jenny Ghetti and Amanda Lees from their show "Dim The Lights" as well as interviews by hosts of the "WGXC Morning Show," Justin Maiman from his "Ginger Radio Hour," and other WGXC shows.

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, and Tom Roe also cuts up local and national news with songs and sounds for the show.

Some reports come from our partner station, WOOC-LP in Troy, out of The Sanctuary for Independent Media. 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 info@wgxc.org.
