Testimonial about WCCA TV
During a recent interview on COFFEE WITH KONNIE her guest P.E. James, a notable local musician and songwriter, stated the following about the value of WCCA and his experience concerning public access community television. About WCCA he said …“that education of the process [Audio/Video and TV production and distribution] was important, and allowed people to go forth with usable skills. Skills that translate to movies and TV.” He went on to assure that his experience in Worcester and also in Pittsburgh told him that a “LOT of people watch public access [Television
]”
We are glad you can share this truth about public access and WCCA TV. We find it amusing when certain persons with a political agenda that is other than “OF THE PEOPLE” smirk or express a skeptism of the impact and interest community media / public access television has in our community. Why wouldn’t our community be interested? It’s programming they are producing or reflecting of their interest .

Find out for yourself. Visit wccatv.com or watch it all happening at WCCA TV 194

All of us at WCCA TV extend our deepest sympathy to “PENNY DREADFUL” Host of Shilling Shockers seen on WCCA TV.
Penny, AKA tells us that the…“last couple of years have been very difficult due to the passing of our beloved Garou the Wolfman ( her husband and one of the leading characters of the show ) after his brave battle with cancer. These final episodes of ‘Shilling Shockers’ ( 9 Seasons ) stand as a tribute to Garou’s joy and humor. We hope your viewers will enjoy them. Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,
Danielle Gelehrter aka Penny Dreadful”
