Well hello WRGY fans! My name is Doug Clive and I host “Doug’s Variety Hour” on Monday morning’s at 9:00 AM.
Recently I was asked to give a little bio about myself and what led me to get involved in the fun of local community radio.
Well I was born with a toy microphone in my crib. Just kidding! Truthfully, I was never involved with community radio before I came to WRGY a little over a year ago. Now it may sound strange but my career in radio started back in 1965 at Cambridge School of Broadcasting in Cambridge MA. Ending a year later when I found out how you might starve waiting for that big break when someone heard your voice and decided that you might be good for their station ratings. I should also mention that during this time I was involved with several garage bands, as they were called back then, by the names of “The Van dells” and “The Bourbons” and finally a group called “The Cape Cod Minstrels” which had professional singers and did standards and Christy Minstrels tunes.
WRGY 90.5 FM is a non-profit, community/educational radio station serving the Rangeley Lakes region of Maine. We broadcast from our studio located in the RFA Lakeside Theater on Main Street in Rangeley, Maine, and transmit from the top of nearby Saddleback Mountain. WRGY offers a wide variety of programming, including educational programs, music from a broad array of genres, and information on community activities and events. We believe a community radio station should reflect the interests of the community it serves, and actively seek feedback, suggestions, and ideas from our listeners. We are also committed to serving as an outlet for the knowledge and creativity of community members, and seek their involvement in developing and producing new programming. As a non-commercial radio station, WRGY relies on tax-deductible donations from individuals and underwriting from businesses and organizations for its operating revenue. We greatly appreciate all our supporters, and are committed to delivering programming with a local flair to our community and beyond.
A unique “voice” in the Rangeley region, WRGY offers listeners something they cannot find at other radio stations: a wide variety of musical genres, information about community events, “tidbits” on the Rangeley region’s history, ecology, and residents, and high quality special programs such as Big Picture Science, Back Story with the American History Guys, Folk Alley, and Jazz Profiles, just to name a few. We also offer community members the opportunity to exercise their creativity by designing and producing their own radio shows. Our live stream is available wherever there is internet service at: www.wrgy.org.
As a 501(c)(3), community/educational radio station, WRGY depends upon tax-deductible donations from individual supporters and underwriting support from businesses and organizations. If you value community radio in the Rangeley region, please help it continue. No amount is too small, and all personal donations are tax-deductible.
We greatly appreciate all our supporters, and look forward to offering unique, high quality programming to our listeners in the coming years!
