In the time it takes to share a coffee at a cafe with a friend who cares about community, we hear the local need or issue that’s on the mind of a local Bainbridge Island resident. Subscribe on iTunes.
In each episode of this new show, we invite you to step outside on foot, bike or boat and enjoy our island’s nature, wildlife, sights, sounds and people along the way.
This is one of our newest BCB podcast radio shows and it reflects the great Bainbridge Island interest in local foods, farming, gardening, recipes, cooking and dining in this community.
BCB’s student partners at the Bainbridge High School Radio Club offer their perspective of the campus and the island community as a whole.
Our overall radio project — called Bainbridge Community Broadcasting or BCB – is brought to the island by local nonprofit Sustainable Bainbridge.
Expect stories — all with a local focus — about artists, musicians, local food, farming and gardening, island nature, outdoor activities, community issues, local history, local economy, and the schools.
Our BCB project spans the generations — seniors, other adults, teenagers. And our current group of more than 30 active adult volunteers is supplemented by the Bainbridge High School Radio Club that BCB helped to establish and equip. BCB will continue to seek local volunteers — with or without prior radio experience — to fill openings for interview hosts, studio techs, audio editors, trainers, schedulers and social media power users.
Meanwhile, BCB has created two studio facilities in the Winslow area.
Sustainable Bainbridge funded a studio for adult volunteers at the Marge Williams Center on Winslow Way, and the Rotary Club awarded a grant that has equipped the radio studio at Bainbridge High School.
By the beginning of next year, we plan to add internet streaming radio running continuously each day. That would be in addition to continuing our offering of on-demand radio shows in the form of podcasts.
And, if funds are sufficient, we also intend next year to broadcast local information and updates in case of emergencies.
Contact us to inquire about opportunities for you to play a role in local community radio!
