Interesting Times
There's never a dull moment here at Outermost Radio. Plans are coming together nicely for a spring full of fun and festive opportunities to cavort with your fellow communitarians. We'll take advantage of the February quiet to focus on our programming and fine tune our plots and schemes, but you can look forward to hitting the ground running with us in March and the months beyond.
Something Fishy

You may be familiar with Seth Rolbein from his work on our board of directors, from his many years as a journalist on Cape Cod, or from his role on former Senator Dan Wolf's staff. Now get to know him as an advocate for the local fishing economy. Voices From The Wheelhouse airs at noon on the 3rd Sunday of each month and features interviews with fishing boat captains. You'll also get some recipes from Nancy Civetta along the way. Thanks to the Cape Cod Commercial Fisherman's Alliance and the many town cultural councils for help in making this program happen.

Listen to the series premiere with Captain Nick Muto here.

Upcoming episodes:
February 19 - Guest Beau Gribbin
March 19 - Guest Tom Smith
April 16 - Guest Jared Bennett

Comings and Goings

In addition to Voices From The Wheelhouse, we have several other new programs on the air and in the works. Gene Petraglia has been presenting the Cape Cod Sporting Life, and there are plans afoot for a talk show about about living a life in harmony based on Ayurvedic principles. Proposals for new shows are always welcome. Contact Matty in the office.

This Sunday February 5 marks the swan song for Mort Inger's Story program. Mort has been with us for many, many years and we'll particularly miss his live drop-ins on Char's show when he came in to record his own. Be sure to say hello if you see him at the Wellfleet library.

Snowbird season always brings a flurry of guest hosts to our airwaves. Carol is on leave from the Roots n' Offshoots show, so you'll hear from Justine, Steve S., John W., and Gary over the next month of Tuesdays from 9:30am-12:30pm until Carol returns on March 7. Pandora will be holding down the fort for the Squid Jigger as he's away on the mornings of February 8 and 15 from 6-9am.

We welcome Yankee Dave back to the airwaves on the 15th of this month from 1-4pm. Dave's Miles To Go program ran on Wednesday nights for many years before it's final episode last year. James Paul Ludwig returns to the airwaves with his Radio Insurrection this Friday night Feb. 3 after being away for a number of months. The show can be heard on alternate Fridays from 7-9pm

Outer Cape Teens Sam and Becca will alternate shifts on Saturdays from 10am to 12:30 for the first 3 weeks of February until Racine & Will take over on the 25th for their annual Oscar preview show. New DJ Kat Williams takes the microphone for the first time this Sunday the 5th from 9-11pm with a Beatles-centric program and David Cox will end his run of Saturday night shows with the program on the 11th at 9pm. David will continue to host one Sunday night a month from 9-12. New DJ Ben has already guest-hosted a few shows, and you can hear him again from 9:30-12:30 on the 16th of February. The T-Bird will likely return to do his blues show in that slot on the 23rd.

With a little bit of luck, Bernie Hutchens will be able to return to his Tuesday evening show within the next few weeks. It may take a little longer, but we also hope to get Steve Morgan back on the Blues Cruise just as soon as possible.

There's almost always something unexpected on Outermost Radio, and that's even more true in the first few months of the year.

Reel Film Series

The next installment in Brad Moore's Fall and Winter Benefit Film Series will once again feature live musical accompaniment as Dinah Mellin and friends provide the soundtrack to Nanook Of The North at 7:30pm at the Schoolhouse.

Later this month, Brad shows The Secret Agent directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Peter Lorre and John Gielgud on the 16th while the presentation on the 23rd will feature a series of Laurel and Hardy silent shorts. Popcorn and refreshments are available at all showings.

Looking Into The Future

Plans are set for the celebration of our 35th birthday. The party will once again be propelled by the rhythms of The Rip It Ups and take place at the Elks Lodge in Eastham. There will be food, a silent auction and plenty of opportunities to mingle with your favorite community radio celebrities. Join us on Sunday March 19 from 5-8pm for more fun than is probably allowed in some jurisdictions.

A little later that same week on Thursday the 23rd, we'll celebrate the winners of the Joe Gouveia poetry contest with a reading at Wellfleet Preservation Hall hosted by author Marge Piercy. The following week, we'll celebrate our quirky cast of characters with a showing of Outermost Radio: The Film at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth on Thursday March 30. There are even more plans afoot to get us through the months of April, May and June so be sure to check our events calendar on a regular basis for updates.
