Starting Monday, November 24th Democracy Now! will be moving to 5pm. Free Speech Radio News will be aired at 6pm as soon as the technical issues that the program is currently experiencing are resolved. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and are hoping that it will better serve our listeners by providing up-to-date news coverage from two independent news programs. This schedule change will correct many of the problems we have been having that result in out of date programs being aired. Hate it? Love it? Send us your thoughts here.

Some of you may have heard, this has been in the works for a while and now its official. Drum roll, please… A WBCR dream ever since we knew we’d be moving into our new home, Live Broadcast Events from Mixed Company Theatre upstairs, is coming true!!!
On Sunday December 7th, 5 p.m. Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams will lend their wildly musical, heartful, community-building energy to our station in our first of many more to come live events with a audience. Also, this is going to be a Live Radio Show, with yours truly as “moderator” - kind of like we’re in the studio, but in the theatre instead.
And, another drum roll… because we know we’re going to sell this out fast and its a fundraiser -the theatre only holds 60 - the Circus has agreed to do a second show, which will not be broadcast, but is guaranteed to be a great party, at 7:15 that same night.
The good news is that everyone will be able to hear the 5 p.m. show – because, yeah kids, its gonna be on the radio,
97.7 FM, streaming at http://www.berkshireradio.org !!!
