Donate your old records to support community radio. We’d love to see what you’ve got, and we’ll share them with our DJs and turn them into cash by listing them for sale. It’s a win for everybody. You get closet space back, folks get to enjoy that music you’ve been hiding and the station gets money to pay our bills. Call the office at 508-487-2619 for details.
Big thanks to the Mass Cultural Council and the Cultural Facilities Fund for awarding the grant that resulted in the successful conclusion of the capital campaign. Thanks are also due to the Kelley Foundation for their support, and to the many businesses and individuals who dug deep to help ensure the viability of the station for many years to come.
With the successful completion of the Broadcast Equipment Capital Campaign, we’re set to start construction of the new studio in the fall. We can’t wait for the improved sound quality and the more sophisticated and user-friendly equipment. The addition of mobile broadcasting equipment will allow us to represent our community at live events across the Cape and improve access for those who want to get on the air.
Ira Wood is the host of a weekly interview program called The Lowdown. For over five years the show has covered national and local trends.
Interviewing authors, politicians, and scientists, as well as cops, junkies, farmers, and comedians, has enabled him to indulge a lifelong compulsion to pester people with questions. His guests have included the famous and infamous, but rarely the vapid. In his experience, there are no boring guests or subjects, only unprepared and self-indulgent interviewers. His 5-minute essays, which he calls ‘Rooneys’ in homage to the American radio and television writer Andy Rooney, air most Fridays at the end of the station’s weekly news magazine.
Ira currently serves as the President of the WOMR Board of Directors. Plaudits and complaints about the station will be cheerfully received: firstname.lastname@example.org.
