AARP to cancel Prime Time Radio.

Last week, Geneva Community Radio was notified in writing by AARP that it will cease production of its long running series Prime Time Radio at the end of July.

We are sorry to lose PTR, as we've carried the program since we first launched Geneva Community Radio. The interviews and features presented each week were both informative and entertaining. It's been a pleasure having the program as part of our weekly schedule.

The last Prime Time Radio broadcast will air on GCR Monday, July 27th.

Details regarding a new program to occupy PTR's timeslot will be posted on this blog soon.

GCR Adds New Programs

Geneva Community Radio is pleased to welcome several new programs to our weekly schedule. We are very proud of our diverse programming, and we are always seeking out compelling new shows to make our station even better than before.

We have several new musical offerings, including Compact Discoveries, Center Stage From Wolf Trap, Jazz From the Left, Earthsongs, and Juke in the Back. We've also moved the popular World music show Global Village With Chris Heim to a Monday thru Friday evening time slot.

We've also added new spoken word offerings, including more excellent programs from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).

Don't worry. All the great programs you've come to expect from GCR are still here. We've shifted the times of some programs to give our schedule a better flow. The complete, up to date program schedule is now posted on this website. Check it out!

More Bad News, But GCR Forges Ahead

To Our Listeners And Supporters.

After eight months of waiting for the FCC to rule on our Petition for Reconsideration, we received word on November 3rd that the petition has been denied. The commission strongly disagreed with the claims made by our engineering consultants. At this point, it appears that any hope of Geneva Community Radio obtaining a Low Power FM license, during this round of applications at least, is now gone.

Words cannot express the disappointment felt by everyone connected with the radio station. However, GCR remains committed to providing quality programming to a global audience on our webcast. As far as gaining access to a local radio frequency, we are determined to explore all paths to make this happen. Our next step is to try and reach out to other local broadcasters to determine if some kind of partnership could be developed to put some or all of GCR's programming on the local radio dial. Beyond that, we will look to the next opportunity to file a new application with the FCC, either for Low Power FM, or a "full power" Non-Commercial Educational (NCE) license. As of now, we know of no plans to open a filing window for either service anytime soon.

As always, watch this space for further updates.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support, as we remain determined to bring community radio to our region despite the obstacles placed in our path.
