    The Free Speech Zone - “Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield - Sunday - May 19th - 7-8 pm - with DJ Big Brother / Then Stay Tuned for “Lives in the Balance” 8-9 pm - Click Here For Details
    May 16th, 2013

    Tune in to The Free Speech Zone on Sunday night May 19th at 7 pm to hear “Dirty Wars”: Obama’s intensification of all components of the Bush war programs, a talk by Jeremy Scahill given at Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, on April 27th, recorded by Truth and Justice Radio. Journalist/author  Jeremy Scahill gives a hard-hitting address discussing some of the dirtiest, ugliest, and most murderous secrets of the Obama administration and that of several earlier Presidents. Scahill is author of the new book “Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield”, and Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army”. Scahill observes that Obama not only
    continues all the outrageous Bush programs of secrecy, war promotion, civil liberties elimination, and lies and coverups in full force, but in fact has intensified them. Meanwhile the great body of liberals who were angry at Bush
    don’t seem to want to criticize Obama

    Community Radio. Thank you very much.

    NOVEMBER 30, 2012

    Dear Friends,

    Look what we’re brewing up over at Portsmouth Community Radio! This very cool mug is just one of the many reasons why you should consider making a donation to Portsmouth Community Radio during our eight-day Harvest the Power of Community drive, which began on Thursday, November 29.

    “This drive is an opportunity to celebrate our eight years of local, independent, and commercial-free programming produced by local folks for our community,” said Jean Proulx, the station’s Pledge Drive Director. ”Although WSCA is all volunteer, nearly 100 strong, we still have operating costs in order to stay on air. As we look to our ninth year, we’re reaching out to our listeners to support us in our Harvest the Power of Community drive. Our goal is to reach $25,000. Our listenership understands the importance of local programming - this simply isn’t available anywhere else.”

    Making a pledge by calling 603-430-9722 (for this brand new, oversized mug or a newly designed T-shirt - or both if you pledge $106.10 or more) is a great way to show your support for Portsmouth Community Radio. And, throughout the drive, WSCA will be donating the first dollar of every pledge to disaster relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

    PAWsitive Thoughts - Thursday - March 15th - 2-3 PM - Host: Jean Proulx - Topic: Amazing and Misunderstood Wildlife
    March 14th, 2012



    Did you know that bats play a large role in supporting human health, forestry, and agriculture?  Or that snakes maintain small mammal populations which in turn helps to grow the crops we rely on for food?  These amazing and often misunderstood animals will be celebrated as we discuss their natural histories and dispel common myths with inspiring host Jean Proulx on her PAWSitive Thoughts radio show.

    Listeners are encouraged to come down and visit, and may be able to meet “Brownie” the big brown bat, and “ZIpper” the corn snake!  We’ll also discuss turtles and how to help them this spring, and upcoming events like our 4th annual Make Way for Ducklings program!  FMI visit: www.wscafm.org.

    PAWsitive Thoughts - March 8th - Thursday - 2-3 pm - Host: Jean Proulx - Guest: Author Layne Case from Barrington, NH - Author of “Charlie” Books
    March 6th, 2012

    Jean’s special guest will be Author Layne Case from Barrington, NH.

    In Layne’s words..

    “Yes, my main character is “Charlie”, a dog who is different from other dogs.  He has a three foot tail.  In the first book, his tail gets him in trouble so he decides to run away from home because he’s feeling unloved and unwanted.  My message…how our feelings and emotions affect our decisions and that being different is okay.

    In the sequels (“Charlie and His New Friend” and “Charlie and His Neighbor”), Charlie’s tail (his difference) will always do something positive.  My message…our differences are to be celebrated and can influence our lives in a positive way.  The next two books that are in draft form are “Charlie and the School Bully”, (this is from the perspective of the bystander), and “Charlie and His Lost Friend” (addresses abandonment issues). ”

    “Author Layne Case is from Barrington, NH. Her first children’s book “Charlie” was written during the early 1970’s while working towards her Bachelors Degree in Behavioral Science. She has also been writing poetry since 1983 and always planned to publish them one day.

    Layne started AMITY Publications in 2007 when she decided to publish her poetry and children’s book. That was the beginning of her career as a published author. And, that is what started her on her journey as a child advocate.

    Layne’s first edition of “Inspirations from My Family & Friends” and “Charlie” were released in June 2007. She designed a literacy program that would hold the attention of the children with whom she would be sharing her story. So, she created large poster board size illustrations to help tell them about “Charlie”.

    In 2009, “Charlie and His New Friend” was released when Layne and Pat Sciacca, the original illustrator of “Charlie” and Layne’s sister, collaborated once again after 35 years.

     

     

    In 2011, “Charlie and His Neighbor“    was released.  In this third book, Charlie befriends little Meezer, a Siamese kitten, who is “different” from his siblings.  And, he can’t seem to stay focused.

    Each book was written to help children understand that our differences is what makes us who we are and should be celebrated.  Charlie will always use his “tail” which is what makes him different, to do something positive.

     

    Layne designed her literacy program “Read Up! Write On! Literacy Rules!” for schools and child care centers as a way of keeping literacy at the top of the list of what is most important in our educational system. Her theme “Celebrating Our Differences” was developed as she became more and more immersed in the world of Autism, becoming a representative for Future Horizons, the world leading publishers of resources for autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. And, with bullying. reaching epidemic proportions because of people being “different”, this confirmed that her program was of the utmost importance now more than ever.

     

    Layne has years of teaching experience in many different environments. She has taught children in the traditional school setting classroom as well as in her health care facility, offering skill building “Gymboree” exercise programs. She also taught adult health & fitness programs, marketing and motivational workshops. One of her most rewarding experiences was teaching computer courses which she designed for inmates at the Strafford Country Jail in Dover, NH. It was here that she knew she could make a difference.

    Be sure to tune in and listen to this most interesting guest on PAWsitive Thoughts… 2 to 3 pm - on March 8th.

     

     

    The Free Speech Zone - Sunday - February 26th - 7-8pm - Host: DJ Big Brother / Then Stay Tuned for “Lives in the Balance” - 8-9pm
    February 23rd, 2012

    Tune in to The Free Speech Zone on Sunday night February 26th at 7 pm to hear an Agony Column Podcast interview with Matt Taibbi, author of the bestseller Griftopia: A Story of Bankers, Politicians, and the Most Audacious Power Grab in American History. The financial crisis that exploded in 2008 isn’t past but prologue. The grifter class, made up of the largest players in the financial industry and the politicians who do their bidding, has been growing in power, and the crisis was only one terrifying manifestation of how they’ve hijacked America’s political and economic life.  Matt Taibbi has combined deep sources, trailblazing reportage, and provocative analysis to create the most lucid, emotionally galvanizing  account yet written of this ongoing American crisis. He offers fresh reporting on the backroom deals of the bailout; tells the story of Goldman Sachs, the “vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity”; and uncovers the hidden commodities bubble that transferred billions of dollars to Wall Street while creating food shortages around the world. Griftopia is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the labyrinthine inner workings of this country, and the profound consequences for us all. A brilliantly illuminating and darkly comic tale of the ongoing financial and political crisis in America.

    Tune in to The Free Speech Zone on Sunday night February 5th at 7 pm to hear a Media Matters - Bob McChesney interview with Mickey Huff & Peter Phillips of Project Censored.  Every year since 1976, Project Censored has produced a Top-25 list of underreported news stories and a book, Censored, dedicated to the stories that ought to be top features on the nightly news, but that are missing because of media bias and self-censorship. This yearbook features the top stories listed democratically in order of importance according to students, faculty, and a national panel of judges. Each of the top stories is presented at length, alongside updates from the investigative reporters who broke the stories.  Censored is one of the strongest life signs of our current collective desire to get the news we citizens need—despite what Big Media tells us.
