Children, parents and friends are invited to the Spooky Halloween Radio Show outside the former church on Spring Street between Court and Cedar on Halloween night, Monday, October 31 from 4-8 pm where they will experience broadcast radio at its most basic. Kids of all ages are invited to explore their inner radio personality, honing their announcer voices at a live microphone; a show will be edited from the material and together with photographs of the evening, posted to Belfast Community Radio’s website belfastcommunityradio.org.
Organizers of Belfast Community Radio formally launched their fundraising campaign on October 14 with a potluck supper and live music jam, raising nearly $1,000 towards the station’s equipment costs. Fundraising Committee Chair Erik Klausmeyer reports that the group has met more than 20% of its goal of reaching $20,000 by December 1, adding Waldo County General Hospital, Daily Soup, and Yo Mama’s to the growing list of Founding underwriters. Belfast Community Radio expects to be broadcasting by January 2017 within a 5-10 mile radius of their studio at Waterfall Arts at 100.9 FM.
Tax deductible donations may be made at Belfast City Hall as well as at both Belfast branches of Bangor Savings Bank, or donations may be made online at www.gofundme.com.
