WCAA depends upon the support of true believers working to bring this new community radio station on to the airwaves of the Capital Region. Every week, we will feature a portrait from one of the members of our Founders Club.
Throughout his life experiences, Steve Trimm has found the Radio to serve as a “connection to the wider world and, to a degree, helped him feel less alone”.
“I’m almost 70 years old. I barely graduated from high school. That was 50 years ago, in 1966. In 1968, I was drafted to fight in Vietnam, refused to go, and was sentenced to 4 years in prison. I didn’t go there, either. Instead, I became a fugitive. During my years on the run, I was isolated and very poor. But, no matter how poor I was, I could always afford a radio. Radio became my connection to the wider world and, to a degree, helped me feel less alone. Which is to say, I learned a long time ago that radio can be the poor man’s best friend. Today, via the two-way street that iscommunity radio, I believe radio can become his ally and advocate. I believe community radio can help the like-minded find one another, give them a place to talk, share experiences, and break thru the alienation and isolation that society imposes. Once healthy relationships are in place – once connection and hope are real – anything’s possible, including a whole new world.” – Steve Trimm, WCAA Founder’s Club Member
