98.3 back on the air

Hello WCRS listeners, just a quick update.

Our chief engineer Eugene Beer was able to install a replacement receive transmitter so we could get 98.3 back on the air. So enjoy tuning in to both of our frequencies again.

98.3 temporarily off the air

Due to an interference problem with receiving 92.7 at the translator site 98.3 is currently not broadcasting WCRS-LP. Our volunteer engineer has been hard at work getting WGRN back on the air and will be working on this task as soon as he can. We are still broadcasting 24-7 on 92.7 and streaming on-line and hope to get 98.3 back up as soon as possible. If you miss WCRS-LP feel free to donate to our station so we can afford better equipment to keep the station going.

Stay tuned for more info - the all volunteer station management

Reggae Radio Takeover Fundraiser - July 7th - Noon to 8pm

WCRS is hosting a live afternoon of reggae music with live DJs interviews, food and drinks (beer sales to benefit the station) and a charity auction.

Admission is free, so come down July 7th (or 8th if it rains) and support community radio. The studio is located behind 1021 E. Broad St and the parking lot behind the station is free to use on evenings and weekends. If you can't make it in person you can tune in to the event via radio at 92.7 & 98.3 or on-line via WCRSfm.org

Visit WCRS @ Comfest

Hello WCRS listeners, you can come by and visit our booth at Comfest this year.

Our booth is located on the road way that runs through the park to the shelter house. We are on the left (if you are walking south) before the statue of Gooddale if you enter from park near the Gazebo stage.

It's the best way to meet your favorite show hosts and to find out more about the station and how you can get involved.

We have silk screened t-shirts we made ourselves featuring our new logo for sale.

The stickers we ordered might be lost in transit, time will tell.

Community radio station WCRS transferred to The Neighborhood Network

On December 21st Simply Living officially transferred its license to operate WCRS-LP 102.1 and 98.3 FM to The Neighborhood Network, an assignment approved by the FCC in early November. “The commitment and contributions of our volunteer personnel have been powerful testimony to the importance of community radio. It is a miracle that our station has reached this point, and it is also a testament to the tenacity, hutzpah, and perseverance of everyone involved,” said Marilyn Welker, director of Simply Living.

For community radio to serve its listenership, broad community support is needed. We especially honor and thank the following agencies and people for their outstanding contributions:

City of Columbus and the Community Relations Commission;
Java Kitrick and the Puffin Foundation
Mark Kitrick and the law firm of Kitrick, Lewis & Harris
Comfest and their Grants Committee;
Used Kids Records;
Columbus Institute for Contemporary Journalism;
Peter Doyle and the Audio Division staff at the FCC for their due diligence in wading through reams of paper related to our timeshare agreement and their unswerving commitment to see low power community radio reach its potential.
