A Tribute to Pete Seeger from Clearwater Friends

On June 23rd, Rik Palieri & Jason Baker hosted “A Tribute to Pete Seeger from Clearwater Friends” for a special episode of Folk Talk with Rik Palieri and it was simply amazing. Along with the absolutely beautiful music, it was impressive to witness this wonderful group of eight musicians playing a full, live show in our little booth!

WBTV-LP at Summervale!!

The Media Factory rolled the van out to Summervale on August 15th and had a blast!

Melo Grant did a wonderful remote broadcast of the Cultural Bunker, joined on the mic by Engineer Phil from STEAM Lab. This kind of cross pollination between programmers is a beautiful thing to see.

Phil captured great interviews, station IDs, and impressions from a vibrant, engaged group of vendors and guests on a gorgeous Summer evening in Burlington. Stay tuned for a special Voices from Summervale edition of WBTV-LP Presents, coming soon!

Special thanks to Station Manager Jess Wilson and Endless Head Nod programmer Nich Kramer for their help and technical support.

There is only one more Summervale event this season! For information, please visit intervale.org/summervale

The Power of Radio: A Programmer’s Perspective

Working at WBTV-LP as a programmer in the past 6 months has been such a positive experience for me as an artist.

Before I was given my training in the radio studio, I was going through a challenging phase where I felt like the tools I needed for self-expression were out of my reach financially.

I was so surprised and excited to see what the Media Factory was prepared to offer me, in terms of both training and hardware, not to mention a community framework to operate in. But the real surprise was how my radio show helped me discover a new side of myself and my artistic identity.

In the training leading up to being a radio programmer, we were encouraged to think deeply about ourselves and our place in the Burlington – to try to figure out what story we were trying to tell. Just engaging this exercise had lead me down a new chapter in my artistic work, using deejaying and music to explore the nature of oppression and freedom in our own community.

Radio is my voice in a society where repression and marginalization are on the rise.
