Turn Your Radio On is a celebration of the way radio has knit communities of music lovers together, kept them informed, inspired, and connected. We're deeply honored that this Saturday, June 12, the program will serve as a benefit for WMMT! Follow this link and purchase your tickets online today!
What has COVID-19 looked like in Appalachia? We've been documenting the pandemic since it hit our region last March — one full year of COVID-19. Through stories, photographs, oral histories, radio and storycircles, residents and media makers have built a new Appalshop project preserving what people experienced in these mountains this year. We're calling it "Creating in Place," and today, we're unveiling the full collection.
We invite you to add your name to a growing list of businesses, organizations, and individuals who support grassroots community building while getting their message out to a broad regional audience in the process.
