Since we first went on the air in 2000, these stations have featured the voices and stories
of many people who live and work on the Cape, Islands, and South Coast. We hope
these small sound vignettes and slices of oral history celebrate our unique region with its
rich cultural life and history.
In the past few months we've begun airing a new series of features called "Hidden
Voices, Hidden Stories." These are the voices of people often pushed to the margins of
our society. We also hear the voices of people who've devoted their lives to helping
people in need.
We hope that this series brings a deeper understanding of the challenges some
of our fellow citizens face here. We also hope it contributes to the mosaic of diverse
voices celebrated on these stations.
