Six Rivers Radio Talk Show Went Silent

Morning Talk on Six Rivers Radio was off-the-air today but the reason remains a mystery.

The popular modified talk show mixes a wide cross section of hit music with interviews on a variety of topics of interest to many, but especially to residents of the northern part of Cumberland County.

However, this morning’s listeners heard nothing but silence when the program tried to unite the three independent stations on the Six Rivers Radio Network.

Morning Talk host, Bill Martin, said, “There were gremlins in the system and we couldn’t find them to get the show on the air.”

Six Rivers Radio uses an international streaming service with headquarters in the middle east. The station’s broadcast is sent from the Pugwash studio at Hope Centre, via the internet, to a server in Montreal where it is streamed, again via the internet, to computers and connected devices throughout the world wide web.

Martin added, “That’s the way it is supposed to work, but today it failed us.”

The host apologized to listeners, and especially to his usual Wednesday guest, Tory Rushton, the Minister of Natural Resources and MLA for Cumberland South. Not only is the minister’s weekly interview heard on Six Rivers Radio, it is recorded and replayed on Thursday’s via community radio stations in Parrsboro and Amherst.

The station is back in service and ready for Thursday’s Morning Talk and any urgent need until then. The network also interrupts the regular music programming of the three stations in the event of emergencies, power failures, storms, or other major events of interest to the Six Rivers to-the-Sea community and beyond.

The three stations operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The music genres include the original Six Rivers All Hit Music, Six Rivers Country, and Hope Centre Christian Station.
