South Shore’s Community Radio Stations Now Livestreaming
Supporting our own community radio stations just got easier. In the past, you had to be close enough (within a mile or two) of WPXH 101.9FM The Phoenix radio station (located adjacent to the Firehouse Cultural Center in Ruskin) or Sun Radio 96.3FM in Sun City Center to enjoy them.
Not any more. Both stations now live stream. To listen from your laptop, PC or smartphone:
Sun Radio 96.3FM: http://wscqfm.com/ (Hit the red ‘listen live’ button’.

WPHX 101.9 The Phoenix
Read the full story on WPHX 101.9 here: http://bit.ly/WPHXRadioFirehouseCulturalCenter
Programming is varied from musical recordings made from acts that have performed at the Firehouse Cultural Center Theater to a few syndicated programs, to a show that Jeff Knauff produces called WHPX Presents, in which he interviews musicians about the musicians who inspired them. The Rockabilly and Blues Radio Hour and The Thomas Jefferson Hour (current events told from the perspective of Thomas Jefferson) are just a few more of the programs.
New programs are added regularly so the best place to keep up is the station’s website and programming area.
WPHX 101.9 Seeking Locally-produced Radio Programs
The goal at WPHX 101.9 is to get more locally-produced programs. The mission of a community radio station, after all, is to give a voice to the local community.
WPHX is particularly special because it is the only low-powered community radio station in the entire United States connected to a cultural center. Its mission is to ‘provide a variety of arts, music, education and information programming that connect people to each other, to ideas, experiences and resources’(Firehouse Cultural Center Website).
If you have an idea for a locally-produced radio show, or for questions, please visit http://wphx1019.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Note: Everyone is invited to propose shows. Even high school students.
