Hoping to get 'Voice of Cape Ann' back on the air...
Many people have memories about Simon Geller and WVCA in Gloucester. A one-man radio station that Simon Geller put on the air himself. The stories abound, from his strange accent ("Glawstah"), to his turning the station off for a dentist appointment.
Some folks are looking to build an online tribute to Simon Geller's WVCA.
"The little station was known as the “Voice of Cape Ann.” From the mid-1960s well into the ’80s, the only “voice” listeners heard on Gloucester’s all-classical WVCA-FM was the dyspeptic muttering of the late Simon Geller, a one-man show who sometimes broadcast from his own apartment."
