2018 is the year we become WGGT-LP and broadcast at 92.9 FM!

Here's the latest update:
We're close, very close and poised to finish in dramatic fashion. Some crucial equipment was harder to procure then we hoped but we have been working tirelessly to be ready in time. Our hard (written in stone) deadline is January 15. I am in daily contact with our engineer as we finalize plans, make contingency plans and even draft back-up contingency plans. All this is to say is that we will be broadcasting in time to meet our deadline. 

Our original plan was to flip the switch for real on January 6. We are now pushing that back one week to January 13. We'll share more information on that after the new year.

This is an encore presentation of a multi-faith discussion recorded with 4 religious leaders of 4 different faiths subtly delving into the communalities about climate change among these religions: Quaiser Abdullah Ph.D., Imam at Quba Institute, Sister Mary Elizabeth Clark, from Sisters of St. Joseph Earth Center, Reverend Mitchell C. Hescox, President/CEO of the Evangelical Environmental Network, and Rabbi Malkah Binah Klein, co-chair of the Philadelphia Chapter of Pennsylvania Interfaith Power and Light.

January 3 @ 6pm: WORM SQUIRM Print E-mail

Good eve. Welcome to Skywave. Tonite we begin with an entry from the sci fi mystery series Lights Out. Originally aired 1942, "Revolt of the Worms"  concerns a chemist keen to develop the greatest rose ever. And in order to achieve that plan, he doses the specimens wit large doses of hormones. But what happens with the leftovers? To find out, you'll have to stay tuned and maybe relieve yourself from the tension with the comedy that follows; one of our favorite sources for chuckles- those un-knighted kings of kick*#^ comedy- The Marx Bros' Flywheel, Shyster, and Flywheel. 1st broadcast 1933, "Episode 10" considers the investment an innocent heiress unwittingly makes in punch-drunk pugilist Gombatz via the magnanimous machinations of the self-appointed investment lawyer Mr. Flywheel aka Groucho with the noble assistance of ever-faithful Mr. Ravelli aka Chico. And here at Gtown aka for now Skywave are guest regular voices Kathy Harmer and Maury Harris aka too many characters to list ready to deliver some knock-out entertainment along with myself, your host aka Andy Pettit.
