The Watershed Post took a step into new territory today: Radio. We've joined forces with WIOX 91.3FM on a weekly Catskills news program called, "The Watershed Post Half-Hour News Hour." (It's like 60 Minutes, only without so many minutes.)

We took our maiden voyage on the airwaves today, and you can hear our first show by clicking on the .mp3 link below. The ride was a little bumpy, but with the help of our guest Steve Hopkins of the Hudson Valley Chronic, some very snappy theme music by Fred Harris of Aleph & Co., and tech support in the studio from WIOX's Mike Teitelbaum, we made it through our first live radio news show in one piece.

This week's show was just a sneak peek -- we'll run another show on August 3, and then we'll start weekly on Wednesdays at 1pm in September. Have suggestions for us? Got a local audio clip we can play on the air? Want to be a guest on the show? As always, we'd love to hear from you. Get in touch with us at [email protected]
