“Hello friends, welcome to Our Southern Community, your public affairs program exploring the people and the issues of energy, the environment and economics in our region.”
I’ve said that over 400 times opening “Our Southern Community” program on WNCW 88.7 FM in the last decade. Much to my surprise, this past week I was informed that today would be the last OSC program to air. That last show is a nice discussion about “Harvest Thyme,” a community agricultural effort, which ran this a.m., and is available at www.oursoutherncommunity.org as an archived program. There’s more info below, if you are interested in the future of “Our Southern Community.”
“OSC” and “King Pup” radio hour have been dropped from the Sunday schedule to allow for more “The Gospel Truth,” hosted by Dennis Jones, now from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. Previously three hours, the additional 4th hour is predicted to result in significant additional revenue. I wish the best of luck. If you care to comment to WNCW, whether to applaud more “Gospel Truth” programming, or to say “thanks and goodbye” to “Our Southern Community,” the email address firstname.lastname@example.org . WNCW is known as “Listener Powered” radio, so your voice counts!
It has been an honor to bring WNCW listeners community programming and for that I am grateful. Yes, it’s been a lot of work to donate weekly programming, but the opportunity to contribute to our regional community awareness of the “happenings” for sustainable living today, and our children’s future, has made it worth the effort. Thank You, WNCW, for the chance to volunteer for the greater public benefit.
Depending on your info requests at www.oursoutherncommunity.org, the OSC energy, environment and economics programming will be continued ….. Or not.
I hope to continue producing community programming and make it available through the OSC website. There’s also a possibility of going back on the air with another station.
However, first, it makes sense to find out how many folks actually want to continue hearing “Our Southern Community.” Do you? If so, please visit www.oursoutherncommunity.org and “register” with your email and zipcode. There’s no obligation, cost or info sharing — I’ll simply keep a count for the next week or two and then reply to all who “registered”with our new plans… Or not.
So, please let me know if you want me to continue producing “Our Southern Community.”
Thanks for Listening!!
