WILLITS, CA, 5/27/17 — Here at The Mendo Voice we want to make sure we are getting you information in all the ways that work for you — so we’ve decided to take to the air waves! Every Friday at 6pm for the last month we’ve been hosting a news and discussion show on Willits’ new community radio staton, KLLG, and we’ll be posting the file after it airs so you can listen at home anytime.
Each show we’ll cover news stories from the past week, and give some behind-the-scenes details about how the sausage gets made — the news sausage, that is. We’ll also discuss some of the larger context to weekly news stories, feature experts on timely topics, bring you audio clips from the week, and mention some upcoming events you might want to attend. In the future we hope to get some guests into the studio so you can ask them questions yourselves. Have ideas about what you’d like to listen to? You can always reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below we’ve included our shows from the last two weeks; you can listen to our first two shows here. If you live in Willits, you can listen to us on your radio each Friday at 6pm at 97.9 FM; if you miss us, you can find the files on mendovoice.com or on our Soundcloud page, where you can listen from anywhere, any time you want.
Here’s our show from Friday, May 26, and our show from May 19 is posted below. Enjoy your weekly news round-up! And stay tuned for details about how you can hear us on other community radio stations around the county.
