CityWIDE Radio is pleased to announce Lee Rayburn's return to the air waves, in at least our southwest corner of Madison. Starting Monday Feb. 1st we will be broadcasting his "Five Minutes Forward" 4 days a week, Mon. - Thur. at 6:55 pm. Now (if you're are close enough to our transmitter on Hammersley Rd near Whitney Way) you will have a good reason to turn on your radio when the News Hour on PBS ends 5 min. before the 7 pm TV shows come on. These 5 min.
The current issue of the Orchard Ridge Neighborhood Association newsletter, The Grapevine, includes a short article about our station on page 7. The newsletter is available online at http://www.orchardridge.info/uploads/ORCC12-09.pdf.
The WIDE-LP story through our first year of broadcasting in the Orchard Ridge neighborhood in southwest Madison has now been posted at http://madisonwi.us/WIDE-LP/. If you live in or near the Orchard Ridge neighborhood, we are eager for your feedback, including: reception reports; programming ideas; neighborhood news; even ideas for moving the transmitter and antenna to higher ground to improve our range. CityWIDE volunteers can be reached via the Contact Us link in the left column.
Bob and Eric are attending the monthly meeting of the Orchard Ridge Neighborhood Association Board on Nov. 15, at the invitation of the Board president.
