Cambridge Community Radio Association

Founded April 12, 2001 and on-air since July 1, 2004

 

UPDATE- May 24, 2020 With the guidence of broadcast engineer Rick Pogson, a crew from Northwestern Rural Cooperative was able to replace a broken wire and subsequently help us to regain transmitting capabilities on May 22nd. We whole-heartedly thank the Co-Op and these fine gentlemen that took care of the task at hand.

Thanks,

Sam, Donna, Frank & Tom

 

WXCS went live on-air July 1, 2004. We played Road Apple Big Band album "100% Natural Ingredients" continuously for a few hours as we drove around marvelling over our own radio waves! Our LPFM license was renewed August, 2014. We continue our commitment to bring independent, noncommercial, local radio to Cambridge Springs and the surrounding area. We were the 2nd licensed Low Power FM radio station in Pennsylvania!!
