Good eve. Welcome to Skywave, the only place in Philadelphia to hear live radio play entertainment. We have 2 scripts tonite. The first is from the private eye series Candy Matson Yukon 2-8209; a rarity for featuring a lead actress in this genre at that time. Our tale, first broadcast in 1950, "The Cable Car Case" considers how green is thicker than red when it comes to murdering for money. But the hard-boiled character Candy is worth more than any fortune just to hear her voice. Our second selection, from Fleishmann's Yeast Hour, is "The Love Nest". Originally aired in 1933, this tale too is driven by an exceptionally strong and dramatic female character who spills her guts (after hitting the sauce) to a reporter about what it's like being a housewife after her starlet years have faded; now married to a cocky lout of a producer she thought would provide a permanent life in the limelight when he discovered her. Well, shining here tonite are 2 1st time guests- one a friend actress Shelli Pentimall Booker and recent acquaintance nice guy actor Mike Raimondo along with recent regular Gary Mitchell, Jim "I Rigged IT" Harris of Ave G and me, your host, Andy Pettit. Let's listen!

Wherefore Art Thou LPFM? Print E-mail

As many of you know G-town Radio was fortunate to be granted a permit from the FCC to become a Low Power FM (LPFM) radio station. The first step in the process is when the FCC awards what is called a construction permit. This means we can go forward with the actual construction of the radio station. This is the phase we are currently in. To date we have held a successful crowd sourcing campaign to raise money to pay for construction. We have also found a new location to put our antenna that is vastly superior to our original location. 

Our current work is focused on paperwork, planning and navigating city bureaucracy. When it comes to putting a radio station on the air there are many things needed to do beyond just flipping the switch. Some of these things we were aware of, somethings we were not aware of and other things have proven much harder to do than we anticipated. As frustrating as this has been at times we remain focused on the final goal. Nothing has proven insurmountable and we are confident we will get there.

Due to several variables beyond our immediate control we can't give a specific date to begin broadcasting. As we move forward we will do a better job updating everyone on our progress. At this specific point in time our engineer is ready to draft detailed plans of the transmitter/antenna site. These plans are needed to apply for the necessary permits with the city. We also are very close to finalizing the lease agreement with the building that will host the antenna. Once the lease is signed and the permits are in hand we should be able to give a specific date to launch our radio station. 

Stay tuned for more details. We will create a specific space on our website to find all updates. If you wish to be on our mailing list or have questions feel free to contact station manager Jim Bear ( This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it ).
