Think of a Radio Station (or Podcast) as a Musical Instrument
Sound School Podcast
Steve Junker says he thinks of a radio station as a musical instrument -- a pipe organ, to be specific. It's capable of making all kinds kinds of sounds. But, he thinks public radio stations tend to only play a couple of notes - including WCAI in Falmouth, Massachusetts where he's the Managing Editor for News. In an effort to play a couple of other notes, he produced "Falmouth to Falmouth" a collaboration with another radio station in Falmouth -- Falmouth, England that is.

Falmouth to Falmouth: A radio collaboration connects Cape Cod to Cornwall
By Paris Alston and Jeremy Siegel

May 6, 2022

Like many cities and towns in Massachusetts, Falmouth shares a name with a town in England. They also share similar challenges: environmental impacts from climate change, a lack of affordable housing, and an exodus of young people. Now they're also sharing the airwaves through a collaboration between CAI on Cape Cod and Source FM, a community radio station in Falmouth, Cornwall. CAI Managing Editor Steve Junker joined Paris Alston and Jeremy Siegel on GBH's Morning Edition to talk about the stories and issues that overlap in the two communities. This transcript has been edited for clarity and length.
