Spring Pledge drive continues, with more features from 10,000 Fresh Voices.

1. Chimgee’s Mission / Produced by Diane Richard
Erdenechimeg “Chimgee” Haltarhuu is a Mongolian circus performer and crusader against domestic abuse. She teaches full-time at Circus Juventas, in St. Paul. With her Mission Manduhai initiative, she takes her troupe, Circus Manduhai, to rural Mongolia, where she educates circus-goers about the dangers of violence in the home. As World Circus Day and the 20th anniversary of Circus Juventas approach in April, she speaks with KFAI reporter Diane Richard about the dueling passions that animate her life.

2. The Minneapolis Art Lending Library / Produced by Britta Greene
The Minneapolis Art Lending Library (MALL) allows patrons to borrow artwork for two months at a time. Started by three recent college grads, the project recently received a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council. With the money, the library will move to a new space, build its collection and—the founders hope—reach out to more community members.

3. Sulfates and Minnesota’s Wild Rice / Produced by Kelly Schoenfeld
For more than three years, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has studying the water quality standard for Minnesota wild rice. In this feature, producer Kelly Schoenfelder learns about the results.

4/9/2014 ECHO CHAMBER

Tonight, as part of KFAI’s spring pledge drive, the Echo Chamber presented our annual “Free the Marijuana” special. It was a crazy kind of night….in a cloud of ganja smoke… Alright, OK…so there wasn’t really any ganja smoke in the studio (too bad), just plenty of ganja-inspired reggae and dub, with some great soundbytes from “Reefer Madness”. A special part of tonight’s program was the The Groove Thief’s “Stepping Between Reggae and Dub Vol. 4” ganja-filled mix (which we played most of).

4/8/2014 Balkan Jamboree

April 8th, the fabulous saz/ baglama Turkish player and singer Orhan Ucer is a special guess on the pledge drive Balkan Jamboree show.
