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 http://www.wcrsfm.org/donate. Any bit helps.

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.
