11/4/2012 Wave Project


Graduation Party
Members of the KFAI Saturday Control Board Certification class hosted and engineered their first radio show on the Wave Project. They had completed their studies and taken their examinations only the day before!

Promoter and impresario Rico Morales presented and ran audio for the Walker Church Band, live in-studio, who played several songs with timely themes. Rico's classmate Cher Dial interviewed band members about recollections of the old Walker Church and a young KFAI that started in the bell tower.
Band members included:
Steve Sandberg of The Brass Messengers and Southside Aces.
David West of Store Bought Hair.
Jim Feldman and Howard Kranz of The Kranz/Feldman Duo.

Interviewer and music blogger Cher Dial offered prerecorded interviews she conducted with music personalities plus talked by telephone with Patricia Nelson, co-instructor for the class, about training programs at KFAI, the relevance of community radio and on being a volunteer.

Music lovers and DJs Lawrence Sheldon and Douglas Solomon rounded out the Wave Project with some of their favorite music. Lawrence proved that KFAI is “Radio Without Boundaries” by even providing current conditions and the weather forecast for Winona, MN, for his family members there!

Congratulations to the most recent Saturday Board Class – go forward and do great things at KFAI.  Best wishes for your future ...
–  Instructors Pat Nelson and  Mike Stapp
