Radio Station

Tomorrow from 1 pm to 9 pm the Community Store will host music and a pig pickin' in their parking lot. The event is a fund raiser for our new Ocracoke Island radio station! I understand that everything is moving forward and before too long we will be able to listen (from the Pony Pen to the South Point) to island news, weather, music, sports, and special programs. Already there is talk of creative shows folks are interested in producing. I've heard people express interest in an island gossip program, but maybe that's not such a good idea!

Oh yes, we're hoping to have an Ocracoke square dance in the parking lot tomorrow sometime around 5 pm. Hope to see you there (Lou Ann has already said that she is planning to spend the entire afternoon down at the Community Store.)

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of the brave and courageous members of the US Life Saving Service. You can read it here.

    I recall reading a National Georaphic article some years ago about year-round residents of...Monhegan Island, ME, I believe it was. One of the residents made a comment about the importance of maintaining civility and a sense of "political correctness," if you will, within such an isolated community. Literally--and geographically--underscores the adage about not burning your bridges.

    Aye! It would be a pirate station eh?

  4. No matey, not a pirate station. It would be perfectly legal...I guess you could call it a privateer station!
