Listener Feedback

Dear WSCA:

……..I don’t listen to the radio very much but when I do, it’s great to be able to hear WSCA. But even though I don’t listen often, I am a supporter of community radio and WCSA on principle alone. (I really liked the segment with the city manager.) I have a special fondness for WSCA because, as a member of the New Heights advisory board, I am aware of the terrific partnership between the organization and your station. …..Thanks for providing Portsmouth with a great radio station! (I have affectionately dubbed you: W Community Supported Air!).   Sincerely, JF


I just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying your Monday program Portsmouth At Large. I’ve been listening for the past three weeks, and now never miss it. It’s great to learn about local non-profits, most of which don’t have the resources to advertise — from lesser-known organizations like Seacoast Outright to the venerable (and somewhat misunderstood, I discovered by listening to today’s show) Salvation Army. Each week the hosts are asking the questions I would ask if I were in the studio… but, they are more relaxed and articulate than I would be! Thanks for a great program. I’ll be telling my friends to tune in. EM

I am writing this email to everyone I can think of in this areas to get the word out about Portsmouth community radio WSCA FM 106.1. I for one love this radio station, it has so much to offer our community and if you listen to it, I am sure you will feel the way I do. Try Wednesday evening when they have Poets or Friday at 6 PM when Rachel and Susan talk about food and visit with local restaurateurs. The other night I was listening to some of the best Blues ever written. Then they have Democracy Now and some really cool radio broadcasts from the past. I am also very thankful to them for broadcasting about my current art show at Kittery Art Association. There are many of our teens involved in this station as well and I can’t think of a better way to offer a great learning experience for teens interested in broadcasting. I am not kidding when I say I love this station. I am never bored listening. I never really gave thought to community radio until I started listening and now I am hooked!  FH


I just wanted to say that I love WSCA. Do you have any bumper stickers? M

Hello. I listen to the station a lot and really appreciate not only the sounds you offer but why are you offering them. Thanks, A


I fell in love with your station when you went on air and continue to leave it set on 106.1 every time I’m in my car to work and back…..Thanks, T


Hi… I have an old Philco console that has been in my family for years.  My wife and I listen
to Audio Theatre every Tuesday and thought we would like to listen to your show on the old radio, but we don’t know how to hook up an antenna to it.  Any help you could give would be appreciated. W


Tres Amigas ROCK. Do they pick their own songs? They have wide-ranging, and very good, taste in music. When they played the Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony” I nearly lost it.

Dear Dermot, Just thought I would write and tell you how much I appreciate your show on Sunday Mornings. Keep it up!


Dear sir: I am enjoying your old time radio program on Tuesday evenings and look forward to additional programs. Thank you, SR

Hi there - Caught some of the Spotlight Awards on the Portsmouth radio station online. Made me a little nostalgic and reminiscent. Hope it all went smashing. Take care, J


Hi, Just wanted to let you know I listened to the entire Spotlight show, and it
was just terrific! Not only did I and other listeners learn a lot about the
local arts scene, we also got to hear interviews with awardees, local band
performances, entertaining speeches, and informed, enthusiastic reviews of
individuals’ work. Jeanne McCartin was amazing on the mic. It was very, very cool to hear how well connected the arts community is with WSCA. All the mentions of the station by the event hosts
were very prominent — I especially loved hearing WSCA shows included as
part of the awardees’ bios — (‘host of Wine Me Dine Me…’, ‘well known for
her show Writers in the Round’, etc.). It shows how deeply embedded the
station has already become in the cultural life of the region. It must have
been a great night. Anyway, just another fan letter from someone who was already a big fan. What
a great show that was. M


I just want to let you know how much I like the indie/alternative music I’m hearing on WSCA. A


It is great to know there is still a station with real music. My CD player in my car broke a year ago so I’ve been listening to the radio for a year and I always hated the radio because it’s all so mainstream. It was nice to listen to real alternative music rather than the mainstream top 40 crap.


Hi! I was on my way to work this morning (I commute from Manchester to Portsmouth) when I stumbled across your station. I almost had a heart-attack and drove off the highway I was so excited. Breeders,
Liz Phair, Blake Babies, Throwing Muses! All the great groups I listened to in high school. Thanks for making my morning! :)


Greetings, You’re doing a great job with WSCA and also provide a great community service with your news and music programs. Keep up the good work. Best Regards, HW


Hi, I found you guys on the web and i just wanted to say i love your station!  What an interesting variety. I’m always learning about something new whenever I tune in! I especially like hearing Devendra  Banhart  and Joanna Newsom on the radio!! Thanks, keep up the good work!   T

I have been listening to your station for about a week now. I love the variety, it never gets boring, unlike
virtually all UK radio stations which stick to well defined playlists. Keep up the excellent work! Dan From England
I love WSCA! I work locally and listen all the time ……. Keep playing the alternative music!  T


Keep up the Good Work. Just wanted to drop a quick note to say that I love the variety of programming on your station- great to have a station in town playing artists I’ve never heard of before. Really reflects the independent spirit of Portsmouth. I was afraid when I heard that the station was coming that it would be a Christian thing (like up in Maine) or bunch of people coming in off the street playing their old records- you know, “deep cuts” by tired bands like Korn or Steely Dan or whoever. Thank god you’re not that! Keep up
the great work! Great to be able to listen online too- nice feature. M


Comments from an avid Fan: Hello, Just wanted to drop a line to let you know what a pleasure it’s been listening to the station for the past few months. I love the wide variety  of music being played; it’s been a long time since I’ve heard ‘Heroin’ by the VU on the radio (at noon, no less…). So, keep up the good work; and keep exposing the community to all sorts of music they are NEVER going to hear anywhere else. JR


Hi. Thank you WSCA, my name is JC and I am writing because I know how rare it is to receive positive feedback. What you are doing for the seacoast community is quite extraordinary. I live in Dover and only get the station in my car but I love it so much that I became a member and am willing to donate even though my wife and I are moving to Somersworth where the reception is even poorer. What WSCA is doing is wonderful because it is different. WSCA proves that music is still alive. The music is lesser known and not forced down our throats by some corporate special interest. The music is such that it attempts to re-train the listener to not only appreciate what is familiar but to actually listen to what is being cast. In essence this is called listening in the moment instead of seeing the present through old and often unrelated templates of the past. In a world where superficial regurgitation is capitalized upon, WSCA is a lost and forgotten art. Thank you! Where else can you hear local artists? Where else can you hear blue grass? Where else can you hear Independent label music? Where else can you hear the lost Jazz, the Avant garde? Where else can you hear all of this and more, and then mix it in with classic songs that are rarely played on the radio anymore? I also appreciate the other programs offered such as “Democracy Now” and the other show that plays old radio shows from the early days of radio.

I tell you that this radio station is an outlet for the many wonderful minds in the area to plug into. This radio station is sunlight that ignites artistic growth onto the seacoast. I say that the thoughts of the many are
transposed onto the airwaves, and there they breed, thanks to you.
WSCA=We Serve Community Aims   WSCA=Welcome Strong Community Action    WSCA=We’re Sick
of Corporate America     WSCA=We Scream “Community has Arrived!” I believe I speak on behalf of the many when I say “Thank you, WSCA”, Don’t Change. JC

Hello WSCA. Just want to send out a quick hello and thank you for the wonderful listening programs!!! The variety is nice to hear and keep up the good work! P

Greetings. You’re doing a great job with WSCA and also provide a great community service with your news and music programs. I was wondering if you have T-shirts available; they would seem to be great for advertising and also fund raisers. The logo on your home page of the radio antennae would make a super shirt with white ink on a black shirt. I’m an artist who has done shirts in the past and the idea came immediately to mind. Keep up the good work. Best Regards,HW


I remember fondly the days of a truly “alternative” FNX radio, when The Pixies, Joy Division, The The, and Siouxsie and the Banshees could be heard on the radio. Today, there are so few great, independent, creative radio stations with a reverence and knowledge of myriad music. WSCA plays Tom Waits, Magnetic Fields, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, American Analog, among others…it is a refreshing and wonderful thing. Let WSCA continue with its innovative approach to radio programming and give its Portsmouth
listeners what they have desperately craved and finally can experience: magnificently independent
music. Fondly, RC


While driving home from a show last night (Thursday) I came upon 106.1FM and had to stop and listen. I had the station on all the way home and have been streaming it all day to day at work. As a part time New Hampshire musician I feel a bit ashamed I have been out of things so long that I did not know about 106.1 until now. First off, I am very happy to know this exists, not only for my own musical benefit, but for the entire community. I would like to offer any help I can, and plan on donating soon. Thanks again for offering this to the community, you have just gained a listener and hopefully I can get more to tune in as well. JJ

In Reference to “Don’t Dis’ My Ability”


Good Day Wonderful WSCA! First things first…what an incredible show!!!  Unfortunately, I was only able to catch the very end on Tuesday and I was listening to a female guest speaking so beautiful, eloquent and rational about panic disorders.  She mentioned that everyone has problems, but that some of us have problems that will scare people; she shared an example of being in a supermarket and having a panic attack. My name is Nicole and I have been living with a panic disorder my entire life.  I remember the first time I had a panic attack in the grocery store…all the isles starting closing in on me and I started to get tunnel vision.  I had a rather full cart of groceries and after a long period of time standing as still as a mountain and looking frightened and talking to myself…I left the cart in the middle of the isle and walked out.  I have been agoraphobic at times, find it difficult to start new jobs, feel comfortable around people, haven’t quite yet found a fella that understands and!

I missed out on a whole lot of good times growing up because I was sidelined with panic attacks.  Listening to her talk about her own experiences made me realize how wonderful it feels to know there is someone out there that understands what you are going through.  She mentioned that we have to take baby steps and she talked about how she organizes her life so that she can live more comfortably with her panic…I do the same, schedules and consistency.  Every social outing is a mini triumph for me and I know there are people out there who experience the same things that I do, day in and day out and I know how hard it is to help people understand how I am feeling…I was incredibly overwhelmed to the point of tears at the sounds coming from the radio.  Don’t Dis My Ability made me feel like a winner that day…I am not embarrassed about my panic, but it was  amazing to hear another share such intimate details of their life that were so directly relatable to my own.

Thank you so much for this show…it really grabbed me deep this week and I can only imagine how many people’s lives or even just their days have been made better by listening to the folks on this show.  At the very least it lets other people know just how much we do and how much we accomplish with what was handed to us.  I love listening to this show because hope lives on the airwaves every time they broadcast!  They are always positive and making others feel better, especially those who might need just the right words…like me.  What a treasure!  I am so thankful!

A Sincere and Thankful Listener – January 16, 2011.

Continuation of July 2011 Tidings Article: Angelynne Hinson Named Music Director at Portsmouth Community Radio

Mr. Blake, in addition to his duties as Assistant Music Director, is host of “Seacoast Scene”(Mondays, 3 to 5 pm) and co-host with his daughter Sarai Blake of “Fan Talk” (Sundays, 8 to 10 pm).

Bliss continued, “As increasingly we enhance our understanding of the demographics and psychographics that help define the seacoast listening community, we will be able to more effectively develop creative and original radio programming to engage our audiences broadly and deeply. Importantly, as a non-profit community radio station, it’s in our mission to develop programming that represents an alternative to commercial radio. That’s our challenge, and one that we welcome. With this team in place, we are well poised to meet that challenge and to stand among the great cultural institutions of the seacoast community.”

Portsmouth Community Radio is a listener-supported, volunteer-operated radio station whose mission is to offer programming that reflects the interests and tastes of the seacoast listening community. Those interested in volunteering at the radio station in either on-air or supportive roles are urged to email volunteer@wscafm.org or visit the station’s website: portsmouthcommunityradio.org.

Continued from “Did You Know” in April 2011 Tidings - Amy Antonucci on Composting…

Information about why composting is so important:

-Composting is the process of mixing organic yard and kitchen waste to produce nutrient-rich humus to enrich soil -According to the US EPA, compostable materials (paper products, yard trimmings, food scraps) made up over half of the 250 million tons of waste Americans sent to landfills in 2008.

-According to DenverGov.org, organic waste in plastic-lined landfills produces greenhouse gases such as methane as it slowly decomposes anaerobically (without oxygen). These greenhouse gases contribute to global warming.  By composting these waste products, you reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that America’s landfills produce.

Composting at home and at WSCA is a great habit to develop.  It is a win-win situation for you and the environment.

He is a song writer extraordinaire. Some 900 songs are attributed to him. His estate continues to earn in excess of $3million per year.  Do the songs “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “Night and Day” and even “Don’t Fence Me In” … sound familiar?  They were all written by the featured artist on my June 3rd show. So turn your dial to WSCA 106.1 FM on Monday June 3rd and listen in at 8 PM for the next Under the Radar Big Band Mondays show to hear the Big Band Era versions of this month’s featured artist, the great songwriter Cole Porter.

During this annual event Steve will be utilizing many vocal artists who performed songs by Mr. Porter, during the Big Band era. You’ll also hear different versions of Porter classics and Big Band versions not normally heard on the airwaves, as Steve celebrates Mr. Porter’s birthday.Cole-Porter-Wrote-Music-and

As usual, Steve will give you the big band tidbits from the Palomar Big Band Chronology web site. The Palomar is an interactive, member-driven blog for those who love to talk about the BIG BANDS and the Swing Era. You’ll hear the factoids and listen to the music concerning the BIG BAND history for month of June.

So, by all means, listen to ‘Under the Radar” with Steve when the first Monday of the month comes around.  Get ready to “jump’n jive” to Goodman, Shaw, Miller, Martin, Kenton, and Hampton with the Seacoast’s only true Big Band show with Steve.
