About Out Of Bounds
Out of Bounds, created by Tish Pearlman, features interviews with visionaries: people living, working and thinking outside the mainstream.
Out of Bounds airs:
Saturdays at 3:30pm EST on WEOS-FM at 89.7 & 90.3 in Geneva, or via live stream at weos.org.
Sundays at 11:30am EST on WSKG-FM, 89.3 Binghamton, NY; 90.9 Ithaca, NY; 91.7 Oneonta/Cooperstown, NY; 91.1 Corning/Elmira, NY; 88.7 Hornell/Alfred, NY.
The mission of Out of Bounds is to move beyond the “disrespectful ranting” of current popular radio, and to forge understanding among people of diverse backgrounds through thoughtful, in-depth conversations that educate and enlighten. This forum features well-known as well as under-represented members of the Finger Lakes community and beyond. The goal of the show is to bring community members into clearer focus, to erase the lines that divide us, to create common ground, and to move forward with a deeper understanding of the issues and concerns that tie us together.
Since its debut in April 2005, the show has featured conversations with writers, teachers, composers, artists, activists, physicians and nurses, musicians, and members of the various religious and cultural communities. These guests discuss their non-traditional work and undertakings, which are generally “outside the mainstream”. The subject matter also serves to redefine the “mainstream” and encourages critical thinking regarding the definitions of today’s culture.
