Why don't you come on up and see us sometime...like October 30th!

Hi, all!  Between some illness (now behind me, I hope!) and high work demands, I have been away from here a while. One thing that has had me busy is that WCNY is having the grand opening for our new studios on Wednesday, October 30th.

You're invited to visit the new building (the photo only shows a little of it) from 9 AM to 5 PM; we have events going all day!  We're front-page news in the Syracuse Post-Standard; read more about it here!

Jerome Witkin to speak at William & Mary on Monday, 10/7/13

Hello, everyone! I have not posted much due to work, and also due to a recent case of food poisoning. However, I am taking a little time to let everyone know that Jerome Witkin is speaking at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA on Monday, October 7th.  More information about it here on the website of the Virginia Gazette:

Still alive...just very busy! Here are three shows to download!

Hi everyone--As some of you may know, the radio station I work for recently moved to new studios, and also, we have been without a program director, although we hope to have one soon.  This has meant a lot of extra work and change for us all, including me.  I have not been talking much about radio because I am very busy doing my best to keep a station on the air.  I have produced three shows, but have not had time to post them here until now.  Here are the download links; thank you all for your understanding at a difficult time in my life!  73--Marie

More for the "Witkin Watchers"--a two-part interview!

I have not forgotten all our Jerome Witkin fans!  I just found a link to a website that has audio of his two-part "Ears on Art" interview from KCBX-FM in San Luis Obispo, California!  You'll need QuickTime to listen, but that's free to download.  Our thanks to Thomas Butler for sharing this on his website, which has lots of informative stuff for artists, educators, students and anyone with an interest in art.  To hear both parts of the interview, just go to http://www.tomsclassnotes.com/Site_7/Witkin_Interview.html  and enjoy!

There is a DXing with Cumbre 748, thanks to Chris Lobdell!

Hello, everyone!  As some of you may know, I have been swamped at work because we are moving to a new radio and TV studio, and some unexpected developments have made things even more hectic.  However, thanks to Chris Lobdell, we have DXing with Cumbre 748!  He covers the recent Winter SWL Fest in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, and of course his usual pirate radio news.  Here is the download link; as always, we thank Chris for his help, and especially now at such a difficult time!

We're back...DXing with Cumbre 745 is ready for download!

Hello, everyone!  As some of you may know, I've had the flu, and my colleagues and I are also in the process of relocating the WCNY-FM studios to a new building, so it's been busy.  I could stand to have four of myself, like this picture done by my brother, artist Ward Lamb. However, the one Marie that there is has produced a show for you this week, and we're catching up on some "Pirating with Cumbre" features with Chris Lobdell.  Here's the link for downloading: http://rapidshare.com/files/2189806749/CUMBRE745.mp3

For Martin Luther King Day: "The Insult and Young Martin"

For this Martin Luther King Day in the USA, I am sharing "The Insult and Young Martin" by Jerome Witkin (of course!) in tribute to Dr. King's memory.  This is a very large work, which I have seen in 2011; it took up a large wall in the XL Projects Gallery in downtown Syracuse.  I wish that this photo were big enough to do this justice, but you can only show so much on a computer screen. (If you click on it, that will enlarge it a bit so you can see more details.) Luckily, it will be in the "Drawn to Paint" exhibition when that retrospective of Witkin's work comes to the Palmer Museum at Penn State University in February 2013.  If you can get there, please do, so you can see this and many other Witkin paintings and drawings!  More at https://artsandarchitecture.psu.edu/news/drawn-paint-art-jerome-witkin
