Micro transmitter brings WIOX to Phoenicia

The Woodstock Times has an article featuring Michael Koegel, proprietor of Mama's Boy Cafe in Phoenicia. I met Michael after the terrible storm twins Irene and Lee ravaged the Catskills.

One thing I've learned from roaming the Hudson Valley region is that many of the communications we folk in Albany and New York City take for granted sometimes vanish: I can't tell you how many times my GPS would grey out while driving and display the dreaded "no signal" message!

Matter of fact, today I stopped off at Triple-A and picked up a map and booklet so that when I'm without GPS I'll still have an idea which road I'm on!

And when it comes to ideas, Michael has a good one! If you read this, Michael, I might even suggest adding a little original programming from time to time (you could tape performances at the cafe and re-play them the next day)...

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
