Back on the air!
Tuesdays 12-3 pm
Good news about the return of two local programs on WECS:
- Chatterbox Old Time Radio on Saturdays from 6 pm to 2 am
[classic network radio time travel with Christine Guarnieri]
- The Pan American Express on Tuesdays from 12 to 3 pm
Regular operations and programming shut down in March when the virus hit and buildings at Eastern were closed. NPR news has been featured since then to provide important information for our community.
A limited restoration of local programming was recently approved for one faculty member and one staff member. More programs will follow in the future after the campus re-opens and access for students and community members is established.
Below is information I shared locally about my return to WECS. Thanks to those who sent email and Facebook replies to connect about the program!:-) There will be open phone segments each week for positive conversation and solution sharing with anyone on campus and in our community. I look forward to sharing the microphones with you!
LOCAL RADIO NEWS!!
THE PAN AMERICAN EXPRESS RETURNS TO WECS
TUESDAYS 12-3 PM AT 90.1 FM/www.wecsfm.com
John Murphy Invites You to Participate Every Week
After months of being away due to the pandemic, I am very happy to return to our local airwaves! A pandemic-inspired mix of news, music, interviews, phone calls and unusual audio surprises.
Many interviews planned with local officials, service organizations, artists, community action organizations. Special updates from local NAACP groups. Our community is under great stress and I want to share radio with people who are making a difference—to get YOUR voices out across our region.
ALL are invited to join me on the phone for now, until buildings are re-opened at Eastern. Share your thoughts, hopes, fears, inspirations, and concerns in a free open and safe space for dialogue and not hysteria. There is already too much of that in the media these days.
If you have anything to share please contact me via email now and we can plan ahead for guests every week!

The WECS studios were closed in mid-March when the pandemic broke out and the Communication Building on campus was closed. The air studio has recently re-opened on a limited basis but for now the Covid rules do not allow for in-studio guests. Phone-ins are welcome and encouraged.
