GCR2 Status Update

 Unfortunately, the unit is still down. Still receiving error messages when trying to load the sound card software. I have been in contact with my tech. He will be here to have a look at the problem, but he won't be able to make it until Wednesday evening. So, assuming he and I are able to resolve the issue while he is here, GCR2 should resume normal programming by Thursday morning, 11/30. I'm afraid that's the best I can offer everyone at this point. I am sorry. Stations, if you don't want the backup loop of programming that is on the GCR2 stream right now, I suggest temporarily switching to GCR1 or GCR3, as normal programming continues on these streams. I will post further updates here as I have them. Thank you again, and my apologies for this unexpected frustration and inconvenience.

GCR2 Stream Offline

Dear GCR2 Listeners and Partner Stations:

I am sorry to report that the GCR2 stream is offline. A driver that powers the sound card for the computer seems to be corrupt. I do not have the needed skills to repair or reinstall this device. So I am going to call my computer tech later today. I do not know when he will be available to have a look at the problem. It may be up to a week before he can do it. I will know more when I talk to him later today. Fortunately, the backup loop of programming in our Streamerr cloud will run so you won't be left with dead air, but, normal programming will be suspended until further notice. I sincerely apologize, and I thank you for your support, patience and understanding. Here's hoping we can have the problem fixed soon.

GCR2 Announces Changes to Its World Music Programming

 Global Community Radio Channel Two is pleased to announce some changes to its very popular World music lineup. Due to the Voice of America ending its daily hosted music program, African Beat, we are moving most of the Sunday World music programming to weekdays at 6PM Eastern/3PM Pacific. We are also adding two new series. Far and Wide, Near and Deep from WBDY community radio in Binghamton, and a two hour Latin music show, Nuestra Musica (Our Music). We are also delighted to welcome back to our diverse program schedule the weekly eclectic music program Ambassador Radio.

The GCR2 program schedule has been updated to reflect these changes. We hope our listeners and partner stations will enjoy the new lineup. As always, your comments about our programming are welcome at, or give us a call/send us a text at 315-217-1308.

GCR1 Welcomes A New, Unique Show To Monday Afternoons

 GCR1 is pleased to welcome Storage Unit 217 to its lineup. This is a production of Kutztown University Radio, and is hosted by Lew Green and Tony Wellman. Each episode takes the listener inside Storage Unit 217. Lew Green has been accumulating a wide variety of odds and ends inside unit 217 since 1972, and each show tells the story behind a particular item.

Storage Unit 217 will air on the 3rd and 5th Monday of each month at 3:30 PM Eastern/12:30 Pacific. 

Our thanks to the folks at Kutztown University Radio for granting GCR access to this truly unique show.

GCR2 Programming Changes

 Dear Listeners and Partner Stations of GCR2:

There have been several recent programming changes to the GCR2 program schedule. These changes have become necessary as several of our longtime program hosts have gone on an indefinite hiatus.

We are pleased to welcome new shows, including The Modern Jetset, Little Bit of Everything, Nash Holos: Ukrainian Roots Radio, and Folk Brothers. Also, new times for shows such as The RFA Blues Show, Beyond the Barrier, Sounds Irish, Direct From Mussel Shoals, and The Piano Men, among others. These schedule changes are designed to help the blocks of programming on GCR2 flow more smoothly, and so that similarly minded programs are grouped together where appropriate.

Check out the updated schedule on this blog for all the details.

Thanks for listening to GCR2, Where Music Matters.

WIthout my knowledge, my streaming provider switched all of my streams to another server. I was out of town this morning, and was not in studio when this happened. I am just now learning of this issue, and am repairing the damage done. Below are the new URLs for the streams. I know it seems like we just changed URLs recently, but I assure you this was totally out of my hands. If this happens again, I will be taking my streaming business elsewhere. Here you go.


Please acknowledge that you got this email. It is very important that I know you are back online and able to connect to the feeds.

Thank you, and, again, I am so very sorry about this!
