Cape May Locals Radio Program Updates
Time for a Cape May Locals radio program update. We are about to close out our first year of on-air and online programming. Originating from various locations around Cape May the Locals has entertained a vast array of guests and topics. The Locals is on WCFA-LP a program of the Center for Community Arts.
Beginning with Exit Zero’s Jack Wright, the first episode of the Cape May Locals Radio program, delved into politics and other heated issues as needed. The program also features a What’s Cooke-ing segment, where I update listeners on popular upcoming events such as Movies on the Beach and concerts at Convention Hall and Rotary Park.
Our reach has been documented regularly in North East Pennsylvania and listeners from as far away as Nebraska in the mid-west have written in to compliment the program. Below are summaries of a few of the latest programs.
A recent show featured Susan Tischler and playwright Bill Sterritt talking about their fascinating new show opening July 10th at the Areodrome, a new venue in the area. The Wreck of the Spanish Armada is described: “a play rich with excellent dialogue steeped in nautical themes and uses vivid imagery” by Theasy.com.
Then we went running with Kashi Davis and Diane Stopyra and chatted about RunCape.net, their take on running tours through Cape May and Cape May Point.
The locals broadcasted from Naval Air Station Wildwood. Did you know that 42 Brave Men were killed training for military service right here in Cape May County?. Did you know jet’s like those seen in Top Gun are on display at Naval Air Station Wildwood?. This may have been our most Awe-inspiring broadcast yet. Talk to me Goose!!! Listen in on the Podcast.
