Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

Jazz part 1 -- From the Begining, with Don Shor (2/8/18)

Back-toback shows with Don Shor about JAZZ!  Not the apple -- that would be on the "Davis Garden Show" (where Don and Lois are co-hosts) -- but the music.  Don hosts a weekly KDRT radio show on Tuesday evenings called "Jazz After Dark" and agreed to come today to share with us some of the history of jazz -- up to about WWII  So sit back and listen to the man and the music.

PS: This was so wonderful, Lois asked him to come back next week and do another show focusing on women jazz artists.

Yolo County Landfill's 'Big Blue Barn' (01/11/18)

The Yolo County Landfill has many programs to reduce-reuse-recycle and one of the newest is the 'Big Blue Barn'. Manager explains how diverting use-able items that would otherwise go into the landfill not only saves us space; it also makes things available for VERY low prices AND provides funding for other recycling programs.  Every other month there is one weekend when folks can buy; but EVERY day one can drop things off. Here the details in this lively interview.

Alison Borkowska returns!

Former KDRT host Alison Borkowska has returned to California!  She is helping out at the station (for KDRT, DCTV, and DMA) as well as ...

That's the Yolo County Library -- with Scott Love

More than just books, this is not your grandmother's library!

Listen to Jeff Peterson's 'Slack Key Travels' for the first 20 minutes, then join Lois in finding out about the library systen in our county.  Regional Director Scott Love tells of alternate ways to satisfy our word-fix -- e-books, audio books, and interlibrary loan -- as well as finding information online using the Library's computers.  The Yolo County Library system also has programs to help us use new technology (such as classes on computer use) or learn to read (such as 'Mother Goose on the Loose' reading times) or help other people (such as the book repair team, or Friends of the Library).

Although old-fashioned 'bookmobiles' are no longer used by modern libraries, Yolo County has come up with two innovative ways to distribute materials to residents who have trouble getting to the library building -- a BIKE bookmobile and books-by-mail.
