WCVT (101.7 Stowe, VT)
Wed Dec 14 08:31:57 EST 2011
WCVT (101.7 Stowe) will be flipping the switch to the new tower and
XMTR on Mt. Mansfield on Friday at 1:01 p.m. The morning host Brian
Harwood, mentioned it in passing this morning. Found it interesting (in
a geeky sort of way) that while they aren't hyping the event, the are
flipping it at a time that lines up with their frequency, 101.7.
Harwood is a very good "listen" in the morning. Very low key and yet
funny in the sense that he seems to thoroughly enjoy what he is doing.
I suspect that is a critical piece missing from many jocks today; they
either sound like they would rather be somewhere else, or they ARE
Harwood is a radio (and advertising) legend in Vermont and is well
known in classical music circles; he recently replaced Ken Squier as
Chairman of the Vermont VSO board. He is retired from his HMC
advertising in Stowe around '06. He's been with WDEV/WCVT for decades.
A bio I found online mentions his having worked as a reporter for
WCAX-TV years ago.
With all that time in with the station, it must be a thrill for Harwood
and others there to be able to kick up the juice on classical music in
Vermont. With VPR Classical and now a broader reaching WCVT, the state
certainly has a solid terrestrial radio base of classical music.
