This interview was conducted with Lynn Sloneker the station manager of WGXC, a radio station broadcasted locally in Hudson and streamed internationally over the internet. The interview took place in the kitchen extension of the Solaris dining room of Solaris at 360 Warren Street in Hudson, NY. Originally from Pennsylvania, Lynn lived many places in the northeast (in Pennsylvania, New York and New Hampshire) before making Hudson her home in 2001. She discusses the diversity of people and community aspects of life that drew her to Hudson in great depth, while also speaking about the changes that development (gentrification) has brought to the city. Lynn also speaks in great detail about how the local radio station functions in Hudson and brings member of the community together.
This interview would be of interest to those researching development/gentrification, community action and the organization and running of local radio stations.
