Cortes Community Radio was designed to broadcast the “concerns, interests, and activities of the Northern Gulf Islands to the public.” This goes beyond reading announcements and short bulletins. We need to produce local news and talk shows.
Here are some of the programs produced from Within our area:
Art on the Island with Maureen Bader
Tune in most Fridays between 9-9:30 am to hear Maureen Bader talk live to local artists about their background, inspirations, current projects, and production and marketing challenges. (Read More)
Free Range Radio with Doug Hamel is “a place where your mind has the possibility of roaming free and perhaps gathering in some images, some facts, some words and inspiration or even antagonistic dialogue. It is free range, it’s going to roam.” The essential question is “Who and what is going on?” Sundays 7:30 -9:30 PM; (repeat) Mondays 10:00 -10:30 PM.(Read More)
Rochelle Baker broadcasts specials mostly on select Wednesdays: 9:00 -9:30 AM; (repeat) Tuesdays 5:00-5:30 PM.
