Another Round of Programming Changes At GCR2

 Global Community Radio is pleased to announce more programming changes to its diverse lineup.

Recently, several long time programs that had been airing on the network have ended their run. GCR thanks all of the volunteer program hosts who tirelessly put forth quality radio shows for so many years.

Some of the new shows we have added are:
The Breeze With Kyle Jameson
That Driving Beat

Also, there are new times for programs like The Lively Lounge, Lake Air, and Something Beautiful.

The new, up to date GCR2 program schedule can be found on this website.

Thank you for listening to Global Community Radio.

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!

Hi Everyone.

Well, it's happened. We are now on a new server for GCR1 and 2. It is a newer server just like the one used for GCR3. It is my sincere hope that the frequent stream/server crashes we have been experiencing of late will be resolved now for the most part. I am sorry that I wasn't able to give you all any advance notice of this move. My streaming host went ahead and moved the streams as soon as I asked them to do so. Details are below. PLEASE REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE SO I KNOW YOU ARE STILL GETTING SERVICE!



Thank you, everyone, for your patience and understanding as this move was being made. If you are having trouble connecting to the new streams, PLEASE CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY!

If you are using GCR3 programming on your station, that URL remains the same.

Thanks for your continued partnership.
