Radio Catskill“Old Skool Sessions” Moves to a New Time on Saturday Nights

Liberty, N.Y. – Radio Catskill, public radio for The Catskills and Northeast Pennsylvania, announced the addition of three new locally produced music shows. Plus, listener favorite “Old Skool Sessions with DJ Chucks and Selector Starkey” moves to a new time on Saturday nights. The new schedule will start February 15.

“These great new local shows represent more than a year of planning, production, and feedback involving staff, our Program Committee, prospective new DJs, and current volunteers following station goals and listener feedback,” said Radio Catskill Program Director Jason Dole. “We could not be more excited to add more locally produced music to our schedule. And hopefully, Chucks and Starkey get a little more sleep while still bringing the funk on Saturday nights!”

Here’s more information on the new local shows and scheduling:
