Special programming for Halloween!

...

Happy Halloween! If you're going to be handing out candy to trick-or-treaters, make sure to take WMCK.FM with you on Oct. 31! We'll have a full evening of special Halloween programming.

Following "Radio 9" from 12 to 3 p.m. and "Goffus' Golden Oldies" from 3 to 5 p.m., we'll have classic old-time radio shows with spooky or Halloween themes.

We'll start out with classic comedy from "Fibber McGee and Molly" and Jack Benny, followed by "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" and episodes of the science fiction classics, "Suspense" and "X-Minus-One."

Then, at 10 o'clock, it's the famous October 30, 1938 episode of "The Mercury Radio Theater" which dramatized H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds," and panicked thousands of people, including locally here in the Mon Valley.

If you're going trick-or-treating, or to a Halloween party, don't forget that you can take WMCK.FM with you, wherever you go, with our free Android app, or by tuning in on your smartphone using the free TuneIn app.

Approaching a normal schedule again!

Another update on our computer crash ...

We are getting back to something like a normal schedule! Thanks for your patience. Our music selection is still a bit limited, but news updates have resumed.

Make sure to listen to new episodes of "Goffus Golden Oldies" at 6 to 8 a.m. Tuesday, 7 p.m. Thursday and 3 p.m. Saturday; along with "Juneberry Road" with Bob Janis at 7 p.m. Sunday, 7 p.m. Wednesday and 1 p.m. Thursday.

Bear with us

On Thursday and Friday, you may have heard two songs playing at the same time, or the stream starting and stopping. We hit a bit of a computer glitch, and we're working on fixing it.

So we're suspending our usual format for a little while and doing maintenance; right now, we're doing an oldies marathon until Sunday night, when we have our first episode of Juneberry Road with Bob Janis!

Bear with us. And thanks for supporting the new sound of the Mon Valley, WMCK.FM!

Juneberry Road begins Sunday, Oct. 25

Beginning Oct. 25, join us every Sunday night from 7 to 9 for an enticing trip down Juneberry Road where you can hear sweet-sounding and spirited acoustic music.

Coming to you from the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, Juneberry Road winds along seamlessly through Bluegrass, Folk, Old-Time, and Singer/Songwriter traditions and whatever other goodies host Bob Janis finds in his musical backpack.

If you miss the live show on Sunday, rebroadcasts will air from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays and 1 to 3 p.m. on Thursdays on the new sound of the Mon Valley ... WMCK.FM.
