    Continuation of May 2011 Tidings Article - “Portsmouth Community Radio Goes On Location”
    May 19th, 2011

    Peter was at it again on Saturday, May 7th, as he once again set up our new compact remote gear (photo below) and engineered Portsmouth Community Radio’s live broadcast from the City Hall location of the first 2011 Seacoast Growers Association,  Portsmouth Farmers’ Market.

    Kim Sedlock (photo below) host of A Redhead Spins the Blues (Mondays, 1-3 pm), was our host for the Farmers’ Market broadcast and had the pleasure of interviewing a number of attendees.  Any exposure WSCA-LP receives at an event like this helps make people aware that we are here and are indeed part of the community.

    During the past year, as a result of the generosity of several local businesses and individuals, we were able to purchase state-of-the art equipment that gave us remote broadcasting capability. This equipment, combined with the volunteer efforts of our engineers and particularly Peter “Rocky” Smith, has helped WSCA-LP to bring more of the ”Community” to Portsmouth Community Radio.

    Continuation of May 2011 Tidings Article - “Morning Voices Celebrates the Royal Morning”
    May 19th, 2011

    Morning Voices is heard every Friday morning from 6 to 9 am. Morning Voices is a genre busting program that brings you an eclectic mix of new and familiar music: the American songbook, instrumental and vocal jazz, swing, classical crossover and more. 

    In addition the show features local, national and international cultural news, monthly composer/lyricist features, and regular interviews with local and regional artists.

    May 19th, 2011

    Everyone involved with the show would like to thank their loyal listeners. They truly hope that they have learned from the program and perhaps have been inspired to make change where they see a need. 

    Thank you to all the hosts for over five years of outstanding public affairs programming on Portsmouth Community Radio.

    Notable - Continuation of a May Tidings Article - Underwriting Team Formed
    May 19th, 2011

    …there are commissions involved, but you’re advised not to think of this as a serious money-making opportunity but, rather, as a chance to meet some nice community members and pick up enough change to treat yourself to an occasional lunch.  Oh, and if you operate a business on the Seacoast and would like to consider underwriting on Portsmouth Community Radio, send an email to that same address.  Contact:
