Hello out there in Radioland!
Harvest season is nearly upon us once again.
KXCJ-LP has added some new DJ's in the past couple of months and we're super excited to be filling more of the schedule with local talent.
Be sure to tune in Wednesday's at 9pm for "Lady's Power Hour" with your host Miss Cellaneous, followed (every other week) by "Hip Hop and Head-Nods" with Sol Good!
And for all you night owls out here in the valley, tune in Saturday's from midnight to 2am for "Squirrel's Late Night Album Show"!
Of course, if you haven't checked out the previous post, please scroll down! KXCJ-LP needs local stories, interviews, music and more for our latest Radio Show project!
We're also planning for a November telethon featuring local musicians LIVE from the studio for 12 straight ours, folks! Be sure to stay tuned for the details on that.
As always, if you'd like to get involved here at the station, we are always looking for new DJ's and volunteers!
Luckily, the fire activity here in the I.V. has been minimal as of late. As the fires rage all around us, we urge listeners to prepare for the worst and pray for the best.
Tune in at 4:55pm on most weekdays for "Junction Drive @ 5 of 5" - for fire updates and more.
In the event of a major fire emergency, tune into KXCJ-LP for up-to-date info on danger-zones, evacuation details and more.
Power out? Internet down? Tune into KXCJ-LP! We will be on the air even if the power and internet are down.
On behalf of all of us here at the station, thanks for listening.
Hey there Radio People!!
The final episode of "The Farm Show!" aired this past Tuesday and the entire season will be archived right here on KXCJ.org, by next week. Have a listen! They won't be up there forever.
You can also catch Valley News and Views on the fly on the /archive page! In case you missed it.
I thought I'd post our latest call for volunteers to help with a giant, collaborative radio show project!!
Please contact us with any questions, ideas or suggestions.
Greetings and salutations!
KXCJ-LP, your local, community radio station is excited to invite you to be part of our new, original radio show!
THE SHOW: A magical mashup of locally archived stories, music and interviews. Made by the I.V. for the I.V!
We've come up with a list of tentative, episodic themes. We're open to whatever stories you have to tell, however, if your content fits into one or two of these categories, that may help with editing. This list may also help spark ideas for what stories you'd like to tell. Ideally, each storyteller/interviewee will record at least 10 - 15 minutes of usable content.
Legends - History, traditions, local lore
Myths - Extraordinary events, fantastic stories, phenomenon, truth distortion
Prophecy - predictions, social and political trajectory
Visitors - Passing through, outsiders
Weed - Cannabis farming
Disaster! - IV challenges overcome (or not)
Water - Water
Status Quo - Here and now, day in the life
Caves - Caves!
Small Pond - “talent” and “culture” in a small town
Forward - Fear of change, embracing change, technology
Dreams - aspirations, hopes for the future
Scheduling Recording Sessions
Sessions will take place one of three ways -
1. STUDIO SESSION at KXCJ Station in CJ
2. We bring the microphone to you! Your home, or any LOCATION you prefer. (Inside or outside!)
3. We are really hoping to avoid the PHONE, as the quality is horrific, but it can be arranged if the subject insists.
Please respond to this email message with your time/day availability for the next few months. We're doing our best to cater to all of our subjects' needs and preferences.
Example 1: Studio Session, Avail Mondays and Wednesdays from 2-4pm
Example 2: On Location, (address) Avail Fridays after 5pm
We look forward to your session. This is quite the undertaking, but with your help, we can create something special for our community.
