Get Involved

Have you always wanted to be on the radio? Do you love music, and wish to share your tastes with the world? Do you have strong feelings about certain topics and issues, and wish to make your views known to a large audience?

With Geneva Community Radio, you can do all of this, and a whole lot more.

GCR is always looking for volunteer program producers and hosts. No prior radio experience is needed. You can produce your show yourself from the comfort of your own home using free software that can be downloaded from the internet. If you are a local resident of Geneva, NY and surrounding areas, you can also make use of our radio production studio in the Geneva Community Center.

GCR is open to everyone regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, political or religious affiliation.

To have a show on Geneva Community Radio, you must be at least 18 years of age. Persons under 18 wishing to have their own show may do so with the approval of a parent or legal guardian.

Because this is a community radio station based in the New York's Finger Lakes region, locally produced programs will have priority.When the slots we have designated exclusively for locally produced programs have been filled, it is possible that non-local/syndicated programs will need to be dropped from the schedule to accommodate new locally produced programming. We encourage new shows to be either 30 or 60 minutes in length. Exceptions may be made at the discretion of GCR management.

As a programmer, you are responsible for the content of your show. It is up to you to correct any errors within your show, and to ensure that your program flows as smoothly as possible. We are always here to help if you are having production issues. Don't hesitate to contact us for assistance.

Even though GCR is a web based radio station at the moment, our ultimate goal is to broadcast on the local FM dial. Because of this, GCR requires its programs to adhere to the FCC's rules and regulations regarding the broadcasting of indecent and/or obscene content. It is your obligation to ensure that the content of your show meets those guidelines. If you have a question about something you want to broadcast within your program, please ask GCR management, and never assume. This will ensure that both you and the radio station stay out of trouble!

Geneva Community Radio management reserves the right to cancel any program it deems inappropriate, or to be in violation of station policies. Any programmer whose show is to be cancelled shall be given notification in writing of the intent to terminate their program.

Shows must be delivered to Geneva Community Radio in a timely manner. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of your program.

Geneva Community Radio has a zero tolerance policy toward hate speech. This includes, but is not limited to, personal attacks/slander, and racist or sexist remarks. Any program containing the above material will be terminated immediately, and the program producer will be permanently banned from the station. As stated above, this radio station is open to EVERYONE. There are many different voices heard on GCR, each with their own unique perspective. You may not care for some of these perspectives, but, this radio station does not exist just to serve you. If you do not believe that diversity has a place on the public airwaves, then please don't waste your time, or ours. Thank you!

If you have questions regarding the above policies, or would like to submit your program proposal for consideration, please send e-mail to genevaradio@yahoo.com
