September 24, 2008 by onair

 

Joy is an emotion of great happiness.and I am glad to cease the strike . The Paris of the South is officially back on the air
.Yes , the strike is over , volunteerism is , once again,  the highlight of our station . We are ready to hear your creative part .
Come on in ! Step by step we will build up the most representative station in our region . You can’t  get bored tuning to 103.5 fm . Our station is and will be , more deeply,  the central cross meeting place of the world interests . Asheville is unique , and each of our  program is  unique.
You like this station because  you , like me,   are fighting this invisible submissive glue , this  voice inside your head that always pull you away from being yourselves .  That small fear that impeach every path you take  to pure joy and hapiness . You don’t want to be a small player in life isn’t ?
life  is too short to be a ninkenpoop and  full of it …

Are we ready ? yes! 
A community radio mean that we all share something in common : first  the passion to communicate . Some of us are better than other to communicate , some of us want to use this marvrelous tool to share knowledge , ideas  and passion, other want just to feel that they are not alone. It’s  fine too isn’t ? 
So to celebrate this new start , i did choose  the best of pure  joy . From passioned songs to real explosion of life , I want to celebrate this date and share with you my dear listeners the best of joy .

Sorry !

Ooze Out Update: Feel the Solstice

September 23, 2008 by onair

The Lodge

There have been a lot of inquiries about what effect WPVM’s changing management and changing relationship to MAIN will have on the Ooze Out Program’s extensive travel budget. Do not be concerned. Before moving forward on their paths, both parties made sure that the Ooze Out Program could go where we need to go (Thanks Jason!, Thanks Wally!). As a result of these efforts and generous grant from our sister station WPVJ(apan), we will be broadcasting live from Transylvania County NC in honor of the Fall Solstice and All Hallows Eve, for the entire month of October. That’s right, we will be broadcasting analog from a secret location . Tonight we are securing the last of the special broadcast equiptment, a series of cardboard tubes, webs and jems, at the lodge. While we’re away you can enjoy an encore broadcast of our August 19th 2008 episode filled with heavy underground tape sessions. This show features Byron Browne, Ooze Out correspondent for the Five Points region of Asheville. Hear more from Byron and meet the newest member of the Ooze family, Shaggy the Ooze Out Intern, during our month long Ooze Out Halloween Party, filled with surprises and spooky underground sounds.

My very best to you,

Peter H. Poffenberger
