Tonight on MinneCulture, a special pledge drive encore presentation that explores the history of KFAI, Fresh Air Inc. This documentary was produced by Ahndi Fridell and J. Otis Powell in 2003 for KFAI’s 25th anniversary, and this year, a companion piece is in the works to celebrate the station’s 35th birthday. Tonight we’ll take a look back at the evolution of KFAI community radio in the first of a two-part series.
Good’n‘Country listeners blew out all the stops during today’s pledge show, exceeding the program’s previous single-broadcast Pledge Drive record with 21 pledges called in and over $1,300 raised for KFAI. Guest hosts Jean Silverberg, Ron Thums and Jackson Buck were thrilled by a surprise visit by host Ken Hippler, who stopped by the studio to thank Good’n‘Country and Fresh Air supporters and assure us all that he would be back in the saddle next week, April 13. Remember that the 2013 Pledge Drive continues through next Friday and listeners can continue to contribute at www.kfai.org. Make sure you indicate your pledge is for Good’n‘Country when you do!
