Unfortunate Image

Featuring a wide variety of recorded music from many different cultures, time periods and genres.  Although the show as a whole would be thematically sporadic, each individual installment (if not revolving around some central topic) would at least have a general flow.  In addition, we hope to include interviews and live performances by local youths who have an interest or talent in any type of music.

Davisville, 2/23/15: Seeking a fast, public broadband network for Davis

Davis Internet imageDavis has commercial, high-speed Internet connections provided by Comcast and AT&T. What would it mean for the town if Davis had a third line, publicly owned, and very, very fast? Several people with deep interest and experience with the Internet are beginning to advance that idea, and on today’s Davisville we talk with two of them: Rob Nickerson, president and part owner of the Davis Internet company Omsoft Technologies, and Doug Walter. Each is part of a new, casual group, Davis Gigabit.

That's Life

Live Thursday 1-2pm
Replays Sunday 2-3pm

DJ(s): 

Sometimes interviews with local folks. It might be about work, or life choices, or philosophy, or history. Sometimes birding, or art, or other passions. Or about local activities, groups, or events.  It's rarely about politics, and it never includes shouting! When there's no guest, it's laid-back music.  Oldies or Hawaiian or Mom's 1940s songs--whatever feels right that day.

If you have a suggestion for a guest or topic, feel free to phone me at 758-5058 (8am-8pm).

The Awesome Patrol Show

Replays Wednesday 9-10pm

DJ(s):
