Volunteering

Dear Listeners, As many of you already know, our Operations Manager Charlie Wilson passed away suddenly just over a month ago.  Since then, we have been thinking about how to honor Charlie and all the work he did for us.  To that end, here is what we have planned…   Starting tonight (Sunday) at 9PM […]

In case you missed it on air, our Porch Talk show with Sherryl Woods is now available online here.  Sherryl’s personality is down to earth and charming, and of course she is an accomplished story teller!  I really enjoyed making this Porch Talk episode with her, and I am sure you will enjoy listening to it. Sadly, […]

Dear listeners. It is with a heavy heart that am here to tell you that our friend Charlie Wilson has died today. Charlie’s official title at this radio station was “operations manager“, but that doesn’t begin to count the ways that Charlie contributed to WWER. In simple terms, Charlie “kept the trains running on time” […]

I’m really glad that our Porch Talk show has been so popular.  Sometimes the simple ideas are the best ones.  For those who don’t already know, Porch Talk is a casual conversation where we get to know one of our neighbors here in Colonial Beach a bit better.  Our town is full of interesting people […]

This weekend many of us participated in helping to make the video for our submission for the HGTV “Small Town Makeover”.    Eric Nelson explains it better than I can…   This is one of the many good things going on in our town.  It’s so nice to see the future looking bright for Colonial […]

Today Ted Tait, Bill Butler and I (Tom Larson) met with the Dashan Turner (Superintendent of CB Schools) and Tricia Williams (CB High School Principal).  We provided a station overview and outlined our vision for involving Colonial Beach students in WWER’s future while learning valuable skills in the process.  Both Mr. Turner and Ms. Williams […]

I wasn’t sure if we were going to have enough people to do this, but we pulled the Easter Rabbit out of a hat and managed to get enough people as of yesterday!  If you have been wondering about what WWER will be about but did not attend the March 30 meeting, please feel free […]

Last night, I made a presentation to the Colonial Beach Community Foundation (our parent organization) about our progress so far.  They seem as excited as some of you about the prospect of our little town having it’s own radio station, and want to help.  I explained to them what we have accomplished so far, what […]

Lest you think nothing is going on between blog posts, nothing could be further from the truth!  We have several volunteers working hard on several fronts, and need more! Most are working without any formal titles, but soon we will start to name people to positions (in an ‘acting’ role) to start creating some structure […]

Thanks again to all those who attended our first meeting.  I think the lovely weather may have kept some people outside instead of in a meeting, but those who attended had a nice discussion of what lies ahead.   We had a nice mix of people with some skills that we will need for WWER.  We […]
