WXCS radio holds public picnic in Edinboro

EDINBORO — The Events Barn at Goodell Gardens, 221 Waterford St., just east of downtown Edinboro, will once again be filled with local live music during the WXCS Community Radio Picnic on Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature the WXCS Radio Orchestra, Tiger Maple String Band and Salmon Frank. Members of the community are asked to bring a covered dish to share.

“We are excited to have our picnic again this year and want to formally invite the public to learn more about our local independent community radio station,” said Frank Bercik, board member of the Cambridge Community Radio Association. “In addition, people will also be able to see what Goodell Gardens is all about and get to listen to some good music and have a great time.”

The Cambridge Community Radio Association, a nonprofit organization, was first registered in April 2001 and serves the communities of Cambridge Springs, Edinboro and beyond. CCRA began broadcasting its local independent community radio station WXCS 92.9FM in July 2004. WXCS is a volunteer-run station that offers a variety of programming and features local and independent artists. The station is also now streaming at wxcs.org.

“WXCS will have a recording booth set up so that picnic attendees can record station IDs and announcements that will be aired on our community minded radio station, said Sam Reese, board president. “We’ve done this in the past and it has always been warmly received by our listeners.”

The WXCS Radio Community Picnic is a way to promote awareness of the radio station and a way for organizers to say thank you to the members of the radio association. The event will also serve as the official release for the 2013 WXCS Compilation CD, a collection of independent and local bands.

“We’re excited to partner with WXCS and the radio association to offer this great community event,” Goodell Gardens Spokeswoman Amber Wellington said. “WXCS is such a great community resource — one we’re lucky to have. The event is a great way to enjoy the gardens with the community.”
