Hosted by Brian Aust, Mondays 7:30pm – 9:30pm
Starting with traditional bluegrass and ending up in all that jazz connotes, WoodWarbler’s JazzGrass travels down the David Grisman > Django Reinhardt sonic continuum. Often thematic and always illuminating, JazzGrass offers listeners fabulous sounds of bluegrass, jazz and artists that blend these along with other styles together. If you’ve been craving a radio show featuring outstanding music that typically never receives airplay, tune in to WGDR on Monday evenings.
JazzGrass also features weekly birdsong ID, concert announcements, artist birthday sets, full recaps of all songs and ensemble personnel plus periodic local musicians live in the studio. Playlists & announcements are posted first on the JazzGrass Facebook Group and then at the MySpace link below.

Hosted by Renee, Tuesdays, 6 am – 8am
News, Views and Reviews leads with headlines, moves into commentary, includes music, and sometimes shows how a feature story is portrayed through various news (and other) media.
Using a number of sources — state, local, national, and international — Renée covers the stories that may be of importance to those who care about participatory democracy, the health of the community and environment; who want to understand the role of media in what we understand; and stories and events that might help us to act in ways that may influence others and/or public policy.
Renée has been involved with WGDR – one way or another – since the early 90s, beginning by filling in for a Sunday morning world music program. After three years as a research assistant and editor for a professor of mass media and analysis of news, it seemed important to share the information about how news is generated, especially developing patterns of news narratives, understanding a story based on sources cited (or not), and where to find what you probably won’t find in corporate media. Having raised five children in the Vermont folk music scene, Renée likes to play as much folk music in between news stories and commentaries as possible.Categories: Public Affairs

Hosted by Joseph Gainza Tuesdays, 8:30 – 10:00am
Sometimes it seems the world is “going to hell in a hand basket” as environmental destruction, social degradation, political stagnation and economic collapse dominate the news. It is hard not to give in to despair. But you are not alone in your concerns and there are many people and organizations struggling to turn the tide; you may be one of them.
Listen to Gathering Peace:
Gathering Peace by WGDR
Gathering Peace brings the good news of these local, regional,
national, and global struggles to the WGDR/WGDH listener community.
Every Tuesday morning Gathering Peace invites you to participate in
discussions with people engaged in the work of peace, broadly defined.
Activists and organizers for social and economic justice, protection
and renewal of the natural environment and an end to militarism,
violent conflict and war discuss their work in depth. Listeners
receive information about how to get involved.
Guests on Gathering Peace often represent local organizations working
for positive social change in Vermont communities. Announcements of
local and national events and discussions of listener- initiated
topics often enrich the community experience of Gathering Peace.
Gathering Peace connects local and global issues to help provide depth
to your understanding and insight into how your actions can contribute
to the larger movement for justice and peace. Together we can
contradict despair, instill hope, and be a catalyst for action.Categories: Public Affairs
