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.

    John – we are mutual social media followers. My family recently relocated our vacation home from the Villas down to Townbank. We’ve been in the area for about 6 years now and every weekend the drive back to central PA has gotten more and more difficult. I enjoy The Locals podcast as a way to get back to the shore over my lunch hour while going for a walk up here in PA. Helps me stay in tune for what all is going on and I really enjoy “getting to know” the folks that make the area so great. Whether the discussion is on a business, upcoming events, or just banter about what’s been going on, I learn something every episode.

    Eventually, Townbank will be our permanent home, but until then, we have our weekends and as many longer trips as possible. The Locals keeps me connected when we aren’t ‘down the shore’. Thanks for the great content, thanks to WCFA, and thanks to you and Ed (and all the other folks involved ;)). Keep up the great work!
