Founder – Steve Trimm

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.

Steve Trimm

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
