Grayville, Illinois has officially taken to the air with its first (and so far-only) radio show. This two hour program available via the Internet is brought to you by the same people who bring you The Wanderer magazine.
The focus is on local people and local happenings, some regional and occasional celebrity guests, names that will be well known across the country as this show will be available worldwide to anyone with an Internet connection.
Hosting the show will be Wanderer Publisher/Editor Denny Reese who is no newcomer to the world of radio. He has been helping friend Eddie Allen with his “Cuzin Eddie Allen Show” broadcasts out of McLeansboro, Illinois.
WMCL 1060AM for these past eight years. “Everything leading up to this is a tip of the hat to Eddie,” Reese said. “He has been an inspiration and offered a sounding board for ideas. To think, when we both started we didn’t know much at all. And after all of these years, we still don’t.”
Friends and fans of Wanderer Co-Editor an d resident “angel” Bowie Buffinger Webb Hannah will delight in listening to her stories of over ninety years of life from days on the Dixon Springs Experimental Station to being a University wife, two years in India, legal secretary and spanning the globe birdwatching and taking breathtaking photographs.
She now spends her time reminiscing and discovering why we are the way we are and ways for us to keep healthy. She will run regular segments on wandermag on-air.
That is the name of this experimental venture, Wandermag on-air. The format is interviews and musical selections and looking back at the recent and not so recent past. “It’s made possible by the people at Blogtalk radio,” Reese added. “Through their services, almost anyone who’s foolhardy enough can host their own Internet radio show, and I guess it’s our turn.”
The show is easy to find (at the top of this page and or go to Blogtalk Radio on Monday night, click on the On Air graphic and then a selection of shows playing that evening will appear. Click onto the wandermag on-air logo and you can listen to the show from 7-9PM. Local businesses will also be airing ads during the duration of this show.
“We are trying to build a complex and diverse group of guests, locally and nationally known and hope all of you will forgive us as we “flub” our way through these initial episodes, finding our wings, so to speak,” Reese said. “Our main goal is to be entertaining, and if we can’t do that, we might as well hang up our microphones.”
For now, the show will be pre-recorded, but that is not to say that at some future date, wandermag on-air could not go Live. “We have the capabilities,” Reese points out. “But for the time being we need to focus on getting some shows put together and see how it all goes.”
