Apple Country Radio - Brookfield's Community Radio Station

WACF-LP, Brookfield, Massachusetts

That’s Apple Country Radio’s new FCC call sign, the legal station name that, combined with our town of license, will be our official station identification. As in,

“This is Apple Country Radio, WACF-LP, Brookfield, Massachusetts, coming to you at 98.1 on your FM dial.”

IRS Approved!A.P.P.L.E. Seed, Inc., the station’s license holder, is now officially a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization–another milestone! This means your donations to A.P.P.L.E. Seed and Apple Country Radio are now tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. By the end of the month we expect to sign the lease for what will soon be our studio space at 20 Central Street, just down the street from Brookfield Town Hall and Brookfield Elementary School, and the station build-out will charge full steam ahead!

Over the past months excitement has been building about the prospect of Brookfield’s own community radio station, with folks from all walks of life coming forward to donate music for our library (over 1500 CDs and 900 LPs, 45s and 78s and counting), volunteer to help put the studio together, help with behind-the-scenes organizing and operations, and take on all the other tasks involved in a project of this size. The talent out there is stunning–for example, who knew there were so many IT, recording and broadcast professionals in “greater Brookfield”?–and we’re hoping that the community at large, both individuals and businesses, will respond enthusiastically and generously when we start our MAJOR FUND DRIVE. Watch this space in the next few weeks for more information about how you can help us make Apple Country Radio happen as we count down to our January 2017 deadline!
