Basilica Industria, the enormous performance space just down the street from the Amtrak Train Station in Hudson, will host a giant fundraiser for WGXC this New Year’s Eve. There will be bands, DJs, and all sorts of other performers to be announced soon. Lady Moon, M.A.S.S., Saber Coup, Bella’s Bartok, DJ Jackie Thomas, Mother Fletcher, Young Paris, Trixie (MC), Diata Diata, Hudson City Ramblers, Evan Randall, an aerial performance from Ryder Cooley, Liv Carrow, and a Norman Douglas radio play are some of the confirmed performers/performances.
Jason’s Upstairs Bar will help with the champagne toast (included with admission) and the bar; The Main Street Public House in Philmont will sell food; Strongtree Organic Coffee Roasters will keep everyone going; Chronogram magazine is co-sponsoring the whole show, and many other local businesses will be involved.
We need help with this event! If you would like to be involved contact Tom Roe (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kaya Weidman (at email@example.com) to help organize this giant party fundraiser to get WGXC on the air and bring community radio to this area. WGXC New Year’s Masquerade Ball cosponsored by Chronogram magazine.
WGXC got a 3,300-watt non-commercial license from the FCC to start a community radio station that will cover most of Greene and Columbia counties. WGXC hopes to go on the air next summer. WGXC recently got a $71,000 grant from the Commerce Department to pay for half of the transmitter, antenna, and studio equipment. WGXC needs to match the other half of the grant, and raise $71,000 by March 31, 2010. Please help us bring community radio to this area.
