Changes to GCR2 Saturday Lineup

Dear Global Community Radio Partner Stations:

Global Community Radio prides itself on offering top quality, fully hosted programming to its partner stations. GCR also tries to air programs and series' that are current, with new shows being produced frequently. To that end, we are proud to announce some changes to our Saturday lineup of nostalgic music programs on GCR2 which we feel you and your listeners will enjoy.

Most of the changes are effective August 20th, we will be dropping the Radiola! program. We're sad to lose this outstanding program of vintage recordings. Unfortunately, it appears the show is no longer in production. If new episodes become available at some point in the future, and there is room on the schedule, we would not rule out returning Radiola! to our Saturday lineup.

At 8 AM Eastern, Global Community Radio is pleased to be adding another outstanding program playing music of the 1920s and 30s. The show, Rapidly Rotating Records, is hosted by Glenn Robison, and originates at community station KISL in Avalon, California. We look forward to adding this one hour weekly one hour radio program to our schedule, and we feel your listeners who enjoyed Radiola! will like RRR.

We are shifting the rest of our Saturday morning programming back one hour. So the new schedule looks like this. All times Eastern
9:00 Strike Up the Band
10:00 Fabulous 50's Radio Show
11:00 The Swinging 60's

To consolidate things, and to make the music "flow" better, we are shifting Paul Peters' The Pirate Years show to start at Noon Eastern, with Stuck in the Psychedelic Era staying in its current time slot at 1 PM.

At 3 PM Eastern, GCR2 is pleased to announce yet another new addition to our Saturday lineup. Rockin' in the Days of Confusion if a new show presented by "The Hermit" of Stuck in the Psychedelic Era. This show focuses on deeper album rock from the late 60s through the late 70s. If your listeners enjoy Classic Rock, but hate the boring repetition that has become so typical of commercial Classic Rock radio, they are sure to enjoy this new hour long show.

The remainder of our Saturday lineup, and the lineup for the rest of the week on GCR2 remains unchanged.

We hope you and your listeners will enjoy the new lineup, and we apologize for any inconveniences these changes may cause to your station's program schedule.

As partner stations, your input is valuable to Global Community Radio. Please let us know what you and your listeners think if these changes, or about any of our other program offerings. GCR exists to serve you, and to provide your station and its listeners with nothing but the very best.

Thank you for partnering with Global Community Radio!

Warm regards,

Jason Longwell
GCR Station Manager
