Harbor Country Radio Network -- "Reach the Beach" Fundraising Campaign

Posted Mar 03, 2015 by Dave Repetto • Tags:

This year Radio Harbor Country was granted a new LPFM permit to transmit from Sawyer, MI. By September 2015 this 100 watt facility will increase coverage of most WRHC programming under the call sign WRHZ-LP 93.5 FM.

"Reach the Beach”is a grassroots fundraising campaign initiated by Radio Harbor Country, a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. All funds raised from the campaign will be used for the one-time costs of putting our LPFM construction permit into action and expanding Radio Harbor Country transmissions to Chikaming Township, New Troy, sections of Weesaw Township, Bridgman and the Southern sections of Lake Charter Township. The permit expires in September 2015 and the opportunity to provide on-air community radio to these locations goes away!

Equipment and installation are projected to cost $35,000. The Pokagon Fund has committed the final $10,000 towards this goal.  We are now at $12,162 with $12,838 remaining to be raised in the Campaign!!! Individuals may donate via paypal or credit card.  Just click below. All contributions are tax deductable.
Local businesses are invited to become Capital Contributors.  Email us at info@radioharborcountry.org for more information.

WRHC Show Highlights for this week 2/28-->3/8

Posted Mar 03, 2015 by Dave Repetto • Tags:

"It's Elementary" - Monday March 2, 7:30am and 4:00pm - We read healthy heart writings from Mrs. Ackerman's class and writings about the Three Oaks Community from 5th graders.  We also had visiting 1st and 2nd graders from "teams" sing the pride song.

"JEML Mixes" - 9:00pm Saturday March 7 and 8:00am Tuesday March 10.  Hosts Jim Lastovich's "little bit of everything" is more new music for me and you.   The roll starts with 2014 rock releases, then I jump all over the musical genera for the rest of the first half.   The second half continues hopping and skipping all around the country and folk scene, we start to rock a bit but we wind up in the country and folk genera with luminaries like Joan Jett & the Black Hearts, War, John Hiate, Merle Haggard and Bob Dylan closing us out. 


"Double Feature" -- 9:00am Sunday March 1 and 6:00pm Tuesday March 3. Hosts Joe and Emily Horak discuss "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" (1947). A clumsy daydreamer gets caught up in a sinister conspiracy.

"With Respect" -  11:00am Sunday March 1 and 10:00am Thursday March 5 – Host John Smietanka’s guest this week is Renee Rosen.  She is the author of "What the Lady Wants: Marshall Field and the Gilded Age", a fascinating book of historical fiction about the Robber Barons of Chicago: the Pullmans, the Armours, the Swifts and the "Merchant Prince" himself, Marshall Field.  It is told through the eyes and ears of Delia Spencer Caton, the great man's mistress of 30 years.  Rosen tells of her love for history, reading and writing in her adopted city of Chicago.

"air pOwer" - Saturday February 28 live 6pm -9pm (repeats Sunday March 1 1am -4am).   An update from Stockton - all the real news from a fake city.  Plus an hour of thrift-store finds and new releases of the week.

"Clascical Music Mix" - Every Monday night from 6:00pm to 8:00pm enjoy our all Classical Music Mix.

James Lastovich, host JEML Mixes of 2014 best list:
1]   "More Than Friends" by the Amigo's was released in 2014, off of the Diner in the Sky CD.   It's great Americana, with guitars, accordions and sweet melody.
2]  "Flying Saucers Rock and Roll" by Billy Lee Riley & the Little Green Men" rockabilly, released 1957.    Close your eyes and it almost sounds like "Elvis"!
3]  "Flat Foot Sam" by T.V. Slim, also released in 1957.   This is "black hillbilly music" or "race music" and they called it the blues.
4]   "American Dream Plan B" by Tom Petty, released several months ago, it's the Hypnotic Eye CD.   Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are as good as they ever were, and it all about today, the NOW!
5]   "I Drove Her Out of My Mind" by Johnny Cash released 2014.   This CD Out Among the Stars was recorded in the 1980's but never released.
