Eliot Feenstra has called southern Oregon home since 2012. His work in the region has included creating a queer land project, teaching with RiverStars Performing Arts, leading community conversations, hosting lots of 24-hour play festivals, gardening, creating The (w)HOLE: Beyond Boom & Bust in Rural America, and learning about local history. He believes that every place deserves songs, poems, and their own radio stations... which is why he is excited about supporting KXCJ.
Keeeth Withriees has been involved in community-based radio as an organizer, program producer, on-air host and manager since the late '80s. He has extensive experience as a co-organizer of a wide variety of projects and events, well-known local examples being the Illinois Valley Bikespace and the annual Otis Memorial Bike Ride. Keeeth serves as the volunteer Station Manager of KXCJ.
Maelagh Baker grew up in the headwaters of the Illinois River, not far upstream of Cave Junction. She is delighted to have returned to this beautiful area having attained a Bachelor's in Environmental Sciences from Oregon State University in Corvallis. She loves listening to KXCJ, both local and syndicated shows past and present, including The Old Gray Mare, Radio LatinX, Keep It Local!, A Way With Words, Undercurrents, and more!
Nellie Barrera has been involved with KXCJ since its inception in 2013. She was a member of the Steering Committee, and also served as Volunteer Coordinator and Program Director. She helped organize many outreach and fundraising projects, and as a longtime fan of community radio is excited to play a role in a grassroots radio project right here in Cave Junction! Nellie served as secretary of the board of KXCJ's parent nonprofit, Spiral Living Center, for 4 years. She currently hosts "Radio LatinX" on KXCJ and plays upright bass with a local band, "Fire Your Boss."
Roberta Lee has lived in the valley for 23 years, is a mom of two lovely native Illinois Valley girls, and works at the Cave Junction branch of Josephine Community Libraries. It fills Roberta with joy to provide her community with access to information and encourage readers to a lifelong love of learning, growth and books! Roberta is happy to put some energy into another wonderful resource in our valley, KXCJ.
Sophie Traub is a performing artist invested in building economic and social resiliency through the arts. She is also the programming director of The School of Making Thinking, a roaming artist-in-residency program, which she hopes to bring to the IV. Sophie is new to the valley and thrilled to be plugging into and supporting the radio-arteries of connection that is KXCJ!
