Local History Conference Looks at Hidden Stories

April 22, 2018 by imc-editor

The Bundy Museum, with the involvement of BU and other sponsors, brought people together to hear about local history with unexpectedly profound results. When Lisa Beal presented "History of Two Families, One Black, One Jewish" she discovered that her great grandfather and a participant's grandfather nearly went into business together: hers had a truck and the other had a dead cow to sell. Another remembered her grandmother from her childhood. And a young man expressed deep appreciation for meeting Lisa, whose activist mother was the inspiration for the Frances Beal Society, an activist coalition at Binghamton University fighting racism, sexism, queer/transphobia, corruption, ableism and other oppressions.

And that was just one workshop! Others that brought connections from those present were "Patterns of Immigration, Ethnicity, and Americanization in Early 20th century" buy Rachel Blaifeder, "Cold War Technology with Southern Tier Roots" by Susan Sherwood of Techworks, "The History of the Women's Center" by Peg Johnston, and "The American Dance Asylum" by Greg Bain. Again, just to name a few.

Prof. Gerald Zahavi of SUNY Albany detailed "Socialists, Patriarchs, and Spies: EJ Workers and the Question of Loyalty. The audience was surprised to hear that Binghamton was a hotbed of radical activity post WWI with many rival Socialist and Communist chapters and that George F. Johnson was tolerant of political diversity and called out the "false Americanism" of for instance, the Ku Klux Klan.

The new radio Bundy WBDY-LP at 99.5 FM will broadcast the talks in the coming months. Kudos to Andrew Pragacz and Diana C. Gildes for organizing this conference. More https://www.bundymuseum.org/perspectives/

Area’s first community radio station, WBDY-LP 99.5 FM, focuses on the arts: “It’s about time!”

BINGHAMTON, New York. (Apr. 18, 2018) — WBDY-LP 99.5 FM “The Bundy” is the newest radio station on the Triple Cities’ dial. On Wednesday, April 18th, the Greater Binghamton community is invited to the official launch and press conference to learn about the Bundy Museum’s newest project. WBDY-LP is a non-commercial, community radio station devoted to enriching the Binghamton area’s vibrant cultural, artistic and intellectual life. What started out as an experiment by one of Central New York’s premier historical destinations, The Bundy Museum of History and Art, now features a full slate of music, informational, and cultural programming. WBDY-LP has also partnered with Broome County Emergency Services to keep residents informed and safe during times of crisis and emergency.

The Bundy highlights area talent through its locally produced programming. Our prime-time daily morning program, The Bundy Radio Hour, features original interviews with local creators, musicians, artists, dynamic personalities, event organizers, and community leaders. Additionally, WBDY-LP is working with community partners to record and broadcast local events, bringing conversations to a wider audience. Listeners can expect to hear events like Chrysalis—a competitive storytelling event, and The Hungry Ear—dramatic readings of short stories held monthly at the Broome County Public Library. All events from the Bundy Museum of History and Art will also be shared on The Bundy. Twice daily, WBDY-LP promotes the Southern Tier music scene through the Audio Classics’ Local Music Hour, with performances from groups like Adam Ate the Apple and the Binghamton Youth Symphony Orchestra. The Bundy is adding even more locally produced content in the coming months. Two poetry programs and an Americana music hour are in the works!

WBDY-LP also offers a diverse range of nationally-broadcast radio shows. Thanks to our affiliation with the Pacifica Network, listeners can hear programs like Blue Light Central, Against the Grain, and Democracy Now!. We also broadcast independently produced programs like Acoustic Café, A Way with Words, and Clearing the Static. See our full programming schedule at bundymuseum.org/wbdy.
Community radio means community. Maintaining and expanding The Bundy radio project requires volunteers, content creators, and community partners. WBDY-LP welcomes volunteers and program ideas. We also encourage organizations to share their events for our regularly broadcast community calendar. Donations and program underwriting are other ways for businesses and individuals to invest in local arts and culture. Please contact WBDY@BundyMuseum.org to learn more about supporting Binghamton area community radio. Many thanks to Audio Classics Ltd and Action Plumbing Heating and Cooling Services for their early support.

The rich and complex history of Broome County has long attracted attention from a diverse array of researchers and citizens.
