Station Announcements

This Thursday, Fernando Meza, Chair of the Percussion program at the University of Minnesota, comes to Encuentro to share with us in a journey around the world through an instrument that lives in many cultures: the marimba.  This instrument has a rich history and tradition in many countries, in and beyond Latin America, and, in some, it has even been declared as the national instrument.

 

Hard times are hitting non-profits just like everyone else. Now more than ever, independent media outlets like KFAI RADIO are essential for a Main Street being ripped off by Wall Street. Enjoy a homemade international buffet of delights from vegetarian curry to a chicken dish (TBA), plus snacks like guacamole with tortilla chips and hummus with pita bread. Homemade desserts, too.

Paul Metsa has many guitars, wears many hats. He cut his musical teeth on Minneapolis’ West Bank in the early ’80s, and has taken his passion for music and activism on the road—a place he calls the “Blue Guitar Highway,” the title of his memoir published by the University of Minnesota Press in 2012.

KFAI “Radio Without Boundaries” introduced a new program schedule the week of July 1st, 2007. The new schedule includes many KFAI favorites in new times as well as several notable new shows.
