A message from the WRCT’s Executive Board

We want to express solidarity with all those fighting injustice in Pittsburgh and everywhere across the country. The killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the violence enacted against the protestors this past week are clear and painful reminders of the systemic racism that still exists in our country. WRCT would like to extend our support to the Black community and those fighting to bring justice to victims of police brutality and oppression. We encourage our listeners to donate to local bail and Black business relief funds as many of our members and DJs have.

Some local Pittsburgh organizations and collectives you can support include the following:

  • 1hood
  • Boom Concepts
  • True T PGH
  • August Wilson Cultural Center
  • Pittsburgh Mutual Aid
  • Sisters PGH
  • Afro American Music Institute.

Some local Black-owned restaurants open for takeout and delivery*:

  • Carmi Soul Food
  • Casa Brasil

  •  * All are open for takeout and delivery. Some may be open for socially distanced dining.

Buffalo Rose on WRCT! June 10

Pittsburgh-based Buffalo Rose released a new EP on May 29. We are thrilled that band members Bryce Rabideau and Shane McLaughlin will introduce the new release, Borrowed and Blue: Live around one microphone, to our listeners on WRCT’s Whiskey Before Breakfast on Wednesday June 3, at about 11:10 a.m.

Buffalo Rose have been part of the Pittsburgh music scene for the past four to five years, and, with this EP, they are starting to garner some well-deserved national attention. New adventures in acoustic music!

Tune in to hear some great music and learn about this energetic — and friendly — band! All part of the fun on WRCT’s Whiskey Before Breakfast, Wednesday, 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., on 88.3 FM and streaming from this very website.

(If you miss Shane and Bryce’s interview, it will be posted at MandoRichard’s Mixcloud page Wednesday afternoon.)
