Achieving victories to reach a regenerative economy: Anthony Rogers-Wright
Policy Coordinator for the Climate Justice Alliance (CJA).  He has over ten years of policy analysis, community organizing and outreach/advocacy experience. Anthony will explain the origins of the climate justice ideas in the GND as well as discuss why he and the CJA believe that a “just transition” to a greener world must place race, gender and class at the center of solutions.  Anthony was interviewed at the recent NetRoots Conference in Philadelphia.


Another way to regenerate, feed the goats your old Christmas tree and restore your spirit: Karen Krivit, Philly Goat Project Director
Karen  and several
enthusiastic volunteers talk about this unique community-based program. Don’t throw your  Christmas tree in the trash. Recycle it by feeding it to the goats at the Philly Goat Project at Awbury Arboretum's Agricultural Village.

New Leadership Announcement Print E-mail

In August, 2006 I launched G-town Radio. For the next 13 years it received more time and attention than just about anything else in my life. I am beyond grateful to all the people who have seen value in this project and volunteered their time, talents and resources to keep it running. The thoughtfulness and dedication of our many programmers regularly inspires and humbles me. At its best community radio makes us stronger, more connected and better informed. This is why I love G-town Radio.

At the end of December I will be stepping away from all my roles at the station. The transition has been in the works for a year. Despite knowing this for so long I’m still shocked at how little time is left. There are many tasks I am glad to relinquish but I know I will miss the work terribly at times. My spirit is buoyed by the wonderful people that will lead the station into 2020 and beyond.

New Leadership

ImageIn January, our current program director, Tom Casetta, will become station manager. Tom’s been active in community media far longer than I (since the mid-80's) and there isn’t a better person to fill the role. During his time as program director he has shepherded many new shows to air and been invaluable helping everyone transition to life on the FM dial. As my family grew and my free time shrank Tom has always been there to make us go. I’m thrilled he is taking on this new role.

ImageOn February 20, 2018 I received an email that started like this,
     “I was driving down Germantown Avenue on Friday and found the G-Town Radio broadcast signal 92.9.  I listened all weekend! Wow!  It is everything I miss about community radio.  My name is Joanna Wikander and I would love the opportunity to host a music program on G-Town radio if you (have) any open slots.”

Joanna not only got her own show, The Sunday Dinner Mixtape, but she joined our board, tirelessly promoted the station at community events and is now our Program Director.

Originally from New Jersey, Joanna has lived in Mt. Airy for the past 10 years. Her love for community radio started in her adolescence as a volunteer at a Free-Format community radio station, WFMU-FM. While at WFMU-FM she was the radio engineer for a weekly program - RadioActive Theater. She then got involved in Rowan University’s radio station WGLS-FM.  As a student she hosted multiple programs and eventually became Music Director.  As an alumni she continued her involvement with WGLS-FM for seven summers to host a weekly specialty music programs.

Having two champions of community radio leading G-town Radio makes my heart happy. Let’s all welcome and congratulate Tom and Joanna.
