Happy Birthday Bob!! It's WJFf's Million Dollar Bash - AKA Dylanfest! We pull out all the stops for a marathon celebration of all things Bob Dylan on the Friday closest to Bob's birthday. This year it's Friday, May 24th and the festivities will start live at The Cooperage on 1030 Main Street in Honesdale, PA with live performances from WJFF friends and volunteers. Then, later on the DJs will take over, going late into the night spinning some of their favorite Dylan tunes.
Join us at The Cooperage starting at 7:00pm for the celebration, or tune in on-air anytime!
We'll be shutting down our webstream during this time though, to comply with copyright regulations. Don't worry though, the web stream will be back up by morning!

On Saturday, June 1st WJFF will host an open house at its Honesdale studio, inside The Cooperage at 1030 Main St. in Honesdale, PA from 3:00-4:30pm. Stop by, have a snack, chat with WJFF volunteers and learn more about community radio!
Sunday, May 26th will be the last day of airplay for Steve Van Benschoten's great "Retro Radio" program on WJFF. This program will be sorely missed during our weekly lineup of locally-produced programming. In its place, we hope you will enjoy Radio Lab, produced at WNYC in nearby New York City.
At a special meeting of WJFF's Board of Trustees on Thursday, April 25th, Sonja Hedlund outlined a plan to re-build WJFF's Board. As the first step, longtime volunteer Glenn Wooddell and prior Operations Manager John Bachman were appointed as interim board members. Along with Sonja they will work to appoint a nominating committee who will present a slate of board members and officers at the June 2013 board meeting.

Thanks for the great photos, Ted!
The WJFF Board of Trustees would like to announce that Adam Weinreich, WJFF Assistant Manager will be the Interim Station Manager effective 5:00pm April 12 until further notice.
The Board would like to thank Adam for his willingness to step up to this challenge. We look forward to working with him in the days to come.
Please join the Board in their appreciation.
The National Federation of Community Broadcasters (NFCB) is a huge collective of great radio stations just like WJFF. Once a year they all meet to share ideas, information and get to know each other better. This year, WJFF will send two ambassadors to the NFCB conference: Interim Station Manager Adam Weinreich, and Interim Board President Sonja Hedlund. The two of them are sure to come back from this conference filled with great new ideas and lots of know-how. Stay tuned for more information about their trip!
All of us at WJFF are saddened to learn the news of Walter Keller's passing.
Walter was a longtime friend of WJFF and a devoted volunteer beginning with his call-in program "The People Talk Back" and continuing through this past spring with "First Class Classicals."
Our thoughts and hearts go out to his family. WJFF will air a program in tribute to Walter in the spring. Friends and listeners who wish to contribute a verbal or written remembrance to this program should call WJFF at 845-482-4141.
We will be regularly updating this spot with information and stories about natural gas drilling as heard on the WJFF airwaves, National Public Radio, Pacifica Radio and elsewhere. Check back often.
