WTSA launches 'Listen Local'

BRATTLEBORO-Brattleboro radio station WTSA 96.7FM is launching a new local music program celebrating the region's musicians and touring bands visiting local venues. Listen Local airs weekly on Sunday mornings from 11 a.m. to noon, starting April 7. The program is also available as a recorded podcast at

The program features music and interviews with local bands across Vermont, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, as well as musicians playing at the region's live music venues.

Listen Local is hosted by Mitchell Harrison, owner of Next Chapter Records in Putney. The one-hour program is supported through sponsorship by Next Stage Arts in Putney; Farm Road Estate Music Festival in West Dover; Retro Music in Keene, New Hampshire; and Guilford Sound in Guilford.

"You've heard the expression 'Think Global, Act Local' - at WTSA, we have a new expression called 'Listen Local,'" said Kelli Corbeil, owner and general manager of Four Seasons Media, which owns WTSA and The Beast 99.5FM. "'Listen Local' sponsors are supporting our thriving local music scene, connecting with both the local community and visitors to the tri-state region through music."

Four Seasons Media itself is a local, independently operated, woman-owned business located on Putney Road in Brattleboro. For more information, contact [email protected].
