Giving Tuesday Now

In the wake of COVID-19, non-profits have been severely impacted. Art galleries and museums have closed. Symphonies, theatre and dance troupes have canceled Spring and Summer performances. Gala fundraisers have been canceled, left and right.

Giving Tuesday Now (from the brainchild of the online day of Giving during the Holiday Season) joined forces on May 5, 2020 for individuals to donate to non-profits, including WCRS. WCRS is an all-volunteer operated station run entirely by volunteers, who while social distancing, are running the station away from the Free Press Carriage House. Community Radio costs money. From licensing fees to maintenance on our antennas, it is not cheap to bring you community radio from the grassroots.

For more information on donating to WCRS, go to Any bit helps.

Bourbon Street's Frank Answers My Questions


I've wanted to interview people who work at bars, + other places in the Communities we frequent since I started at a Community Radio station. BSA Hip Hop radio plays via 92.7 / 98.3, 7pm, Thursdays. Our station is a community radio station.

I figured I'd finally start interviewing today, with Frank who works at Cafe Bourbon Street. This is a dive bar with an importance in Columbus music.

I don't see any workers that were part of my day except Panda Express employees because bars are closed. If I'm drinking beers in my living room or from my stoop I don't see Frank as much

Last month I wanted to know which songs Frank listens to when he isn't working.

Today, I wanted to know if Frank had ideas for the economic needs of the small businesses like where he works that are currently closed.

Frank, when did you start working @ Bourbon Street?
Actually I started working at the Summit as a door person in 2010, then became the bartender at Bourbon Street around 2013.

Frank from Columbus or somewhere 3 hours from here?
I'm from Lima Ohio, that's about 1.5 hours NW from here.

Did Frank have a favorite song when you were 13?
Batdance by Prince

Does Frank have a favorite song now?
Recently I've been listening to "Piano" by Kiesza.

memorable show?
Crazy Pills from NY at Bourbon St.

A favorite food @ Extreme Wieners?
It would be the Dogapolypse, I think I'm spelling that right.

Did you live here when Taco Ninja was here? Did you have a favorite food there?
Unfortunately I wasn't.

Frank how should the government assist or supplement small businesses + bartenders?

They should offer low interest loans with deferred payments until 2021 along with stimulus packs,
to allow businesses and bartenders to get a firm financial base while the nation is in recovery.

Our Studios May Be Closed, But We Are Still On The Air

By Bryan Curtiss, Writer

Last week, it was decided that the Free Press Carriage House would be closed until further notice. What does that mean necessarily? Does it mean that your favorite locally produced show will be going on an extended hiatus? Not quite. The decision to go on hiatus is solely on the producers of a respective show.

WCRS-FM is not the only radio station located at the Free Press Carriage House. WGRN 94.1 FM also records shows in the studio as well. Some shows are not produced in the studios at all, but in people’s homes (or studios), while some other shows that have been recorded at the Free Press Carriage House, including The DJBC Happy Hour, have moved to being recorded at home, and a few other shows will be on hiatus.

The Columbus Free Press Newspaper is also produced in the Free Press Carriage House. However, the Free Press did not print an April Issue, and will not be printing one in May either.

During this Coronavirus Pandemic, there has been a lot of good in the community during all of the chaos of people being laid off, companies being forced to close, and everyone being required to Stay at Home.

Ohio has taken an aggressive approach to the Pandemic, with people helping out others in need. There are the medical personnel, first responders, grocery store team members, bus drivers, and other essential workers who are risking their lives on a daily basis to do their jobs. Thank you.

Through all that, WCRS FM is still on the air, and is not going anywhere. Our show producers are just doing their shows from home, to weather this storm.
We are all in this together.
