The Volunteer Programmers of WGDR, 2009



 40 new portraits went up today at WGDR, 91.1 FM!

I had the honor to spend time at the station this summer and photograph for two days straight in our make-shift studio… Having been a programmer back in the day (Saturday Mornings, The Kids Show with No Name!) I really consider it a second home.

 This radio station based at Goddard College in Plainfield, VT is unlike anything else out there (completely community driven, free-format) and every week 60+ volunteers and four dedicated employees produce some of the most innovative and enjoyable radio you can find. You can even listen on line now-

These portraits are my way of saying thank you to all the dedicated volunteers, giving a face to the radio voices and celebrating an outstanding group of people who love community radio.

All of the portraits can be seen on permanent display at WGDR, and for a short time in the Photography hallway at Illinois State University!

    Hey Britten –

    I’ve meant to write sooner. Thanks for the fabulous portraits. You really have talent! (I knew that already, but am reminded in spades by these latest pictures.) It all meant a great deal to those who were photographed and others who checked out the “gallery” just outside in the hallway here. Thank you so much for your ongoing support.

    Btw, I love the picture of the propane tanks at sunrise (or sunset)!
