Internet radio comes to Prince Edward County

Prince Edward County’s Internet radio station launched its website – CountyRadio.ca – with streaming programming on weekends and feature podcasts.

Don Edwards

CountyRadio’s producer Don Edwards first caught the radio bug as a high schooler in Cornwall. Later he served as chair of a community broadcasting society in Inuvik and thanks to a fundraiser featuring Doug and the Slugs, a 50-watt, volunteer-operated FM station made it on the air to the delight of 3500 town residents.

“Many of us now have satellite radio pre-installed in our vehicles. And these days, our computers, smart phones and personal listening devices allow us to listen to thousands of Internet radio stations all around the world,” says Edwards. “What really matters though is that County Radio online will allow us to focus on Prince Edward County, while at the same time sharing a global connection with the world around us.”

County Radio will play an eclectic music mix, while developing new and entertaining feature programs to add to the schedule.

County Radio’s online host is Janet Davis, art director at County Magazine and co-owner of the Bald Photographer Gallery in Prince Edward County.
The first edition of Home Grown, hosted by Karin Desveaux, is also available for downloading as a weekly podcast. This week she speaks with Scott Royce, executive chef  at The Waupoos Estates Winery.

During the start-up phase, County Radio will operate on a weekend schedule – 6 a.m. Saturdays to midnight Sundays- until after Christmas, when full-time, 24/7 programming will be introduced.

    Looking forward to feature programs, interviews, and news items from the County, to satellite radio (Sirius) programming, and to podcasts. This will suit snowbirds fine.
    Never mind the music — that’s available EVERYWHERE!EVERYWHEN!

    Unless it’s local musicians, of course.
    Frere Bros, vintage Zeke, if possible, Jeanette, etc.
    How about broadcasts of Christmas parades (of course, audio only (so far), but we miss the broadcasts from the days of Quinte Cable)?
