Sara has increased the length of her weekly blogtalkradio.com show to 2 hours, so we are now broadcasting it from 6 to 8 pm Saturday evenings. As of Friday Sept. 30, Sara is moving her live webcast show to Friday mornings, but our rebroadcast will remain on Saturday evenings.
On Saturday Sept. 3rd WIDE-LP brings The Sara Schulz Show to the public airwaves for the first time. This is a politically progressive radio show produced in Wisconsin and focused on Wisconsin issue which Sara has been webcasting live each Saturday morning from 10:30 am to noon on blogtalkradio. Go to http://www.blogtalkradio.com/saraschulz/ on the Web during that time to listen live and to call in toll free to (877) 497-1797 if you have a question for her or her guest. CityWIDE Radio will rebroadcast her show (which may be from the previous Saturday) from 6:30 to 8:00 pm Saturday evening.
Madison public schools are now back in session, and with that change CityWIDE Radio returns to our pre-vacation schedule for Fridays, which means airing "Topics in Evolutionary Science" at 10 am and 5 pm each Friday. If you enjoyed "Ask A Biologist" in that time slot during the summer, drop us a note at email@example.com. Depending on listener interest, we could schedule that program at a different time.
Starting Friday 6/17 the Wider Horizons program airing at 10am & 5pm each Friday during the summer will be "Ask A Biologist" instead of the usual "Topics in Evolutionary Science". Most of the latter programs were talks given to scientifically sophisticated college level audiences. "Ask A Biologist", a podcast series created at Arizona State University, is appropriate for a general audience and is aimed in particular at pre-college students through grade 12. It will continue through Madison public school's summer vacation period.
Starting Monday March 7, CityWIDE Radio will broadcast the day's Democracy Now! (http://www.democracynow.org/) program at 8 pm each weekday. Tune in to hear the news about the protests in Madison that the mainstream media pays little attention to. Also click the Talk Shows link at the top of the page for links to other protest-related programs that are being carried during previously established talk show times.
In a long sought move, the Local Community Radio Act has become law. It is expected to significantly increase the number of Low Power FM stations and the number of LPFM listeners. Read about it in the Jan. 10 article at http://www.current.org/radio/radio1101lpfm-bill.shtml.
As of Jan. 1, 2011, the following changes in talk show schedules take effect:
CounterSpin podcasts (made available weekly by Friday morning) will continue to be broadcast Saturday at 12:30 pm, but the repeat will move from the following Thursday to Monday at 4:30 pm.
Culture Shocks will continue to air 3 times a week, but will move from Monday - Wednesday to Tuesday - Thursday at 4:20 pm.
The Wider Horizons Saturday Encores at 10 am will be discontinued.
The Best of Talk will move from 9 am to 10 am Saturday mornings.
The WIDE-LP partners (CityWIDE and SoulWIDE) are among the sponsors of the People's Media Mash coming up Thursday Sept. 9 at the High Noon Saloon, 701 E. Washington in Madison. It's a pre-party for Fighting Bob Fest at the Sauk County Fairground in Baraboo on Sat. Sept. 11. The public is invited, so join us, Madison's community of independent media organizations and media activists, for an evening of music, dancing, food, and speakers celebrating non-profit media as a force for democracy and social justice in greater Madison. Doors open at 6:30, first band at 7 pm.
