Don't forget : We Have a Production Pod at Cundy's Harbor Library

Harpswell Community Radio – WHPW – has been working to provide access to the broadcast airwaves for the general public.  As part of this ongoing process WHPW has just completed installation of a “production pod” at the Cundy’s Harbor Library in Harpswell.  This is the first of several intended to be installed around the area at various locations.  The “pods” contain the equipment that will allow individuals to record, edit, and enhance work to then be aired on Harpswell Radio.  The installation was completed by WHPW volunteer Nicholas Keeney.

Karen Schneider, Cundy’s Harbor Library Director, welcomed the installation as another library service provided to the community.  Library staff will be trained in the operation of the equipment in order to assist library patrons who wish to utilize it. 

So how does this work?   Suppose you would like to produce an audio piece for radio.  This could be as simple as an announcement about your organization’s upcoming fundraiser or services provided to the community.  It could be that full blown DJ show that you’ve long envisioned yourself doing.  It could be a show about a subject that you are passionate about, say fruit orchards or 16th century literature, or even news and commentary.   People will be able to reserve time during library hours to come in and use the equipment work on their production at their own pace without the time pressures of “live” broadcasts. This can be done as a “one-off” or as a recurring, perhaps weekly show.  When the work is finished it will be aired on local radio station WHPW 97.3 fm.

Our "Introduction to Radio" training sessions have been well attended with some folks attending for the first time and many have been at every session. The meetings are usually divided into two groups: hands-on-training, where participants learn how to speak into a microphone and recording station IDs; learning how to produce and edit a radio program; help with what equipment you need, etc.; a separate group will be able to ask questions about WHPW and learn about being on the radio or being part of the radio station in other ways. Stay tuned for information on our next trainiing.





                                   Don't forget - if you are short on time to volunteer or produce
                    a show, but have some extra cash that you don't know what to do with
                           a donation of any size is a great way to support local radio.
