Starting Oct. 10, WMCK.FM Internet Radio is proud to become McKeesport's home for The Saturday Light Brigade, one of America's most unique, and longest-running, public radio shows, broadcast live from the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh.
The affliation is especially appropriate because SLB is also a partner with the McKeesport-based Consortium for Public Education as well as Propel School McKeesport. WMCK.FM will provide the first locally based outlet for content recorded by K-12 students in Mon Valley area schools.
Launched in 1978, The Saturday Light Brigade is a Saturday morning public radio program that blends acoustic music, live performances by youth and adults, participatory puzzles, on-air telephone calls, and interviews with other community-based nonprofits serving youth and families.
Larry Berger serves as host and executive director.
