  1. Hello! Was just driving through Belchertown (en route to Amherst) and heard a previously unknown station on 107.7. Did some scratching around in the FCC database and turned up the details. Interesting! I happen to have three FCC operator licenses (got my first ham radio license at age 12), and I was an original founding member of Valley Free Radio, WXOJ – 103.3 in Northampton, which is still going great guns, 11 years into its existence! You might also be interested to know that your 100 watts is doing a nice “bounce” off a ridge out here at the Ware/Palmer line, where I live, and is putting an almost-full-quieting signal into the car radio while parked in the driveway. You might also be interested to know that WJMJ – 88.9 in Hartford, which is owned by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Hartford, carries a really nice “Top 20 Christian Music Countdown” every Sunday evening from 6:00 to 8:00. The program actually originates in Texas, and is syndicated around the country. I’d describe the genre as “Existential Praise Song”, especially addressing the issues of younger adults in their 20s and 30s. Very nice stuff — I try to catch it every weekend. Personally, I’m a Holy Cross College and Yale University grad, and an active member of the splendid Cardinal Newman Catholic Center at UMass-Amherst. Enough chatter — just wanted to let you know that I accidentally discovered the station today while driving through Belchertown, and I found it quite fascinating. Good luck with the ministry. Given the horrible condition of the world, every little bit of uplift and encouragement counts.

    1. Thank you so much Dave for sharing and for visiting us. You may be hearing from our program director Tim in the near future.
