KGNU Denver Studio Although KGNU has its own web page, I am proud to feature them here as well. I became associated with the station as a music programmer in 1995. Since then I've been fortunate to conduct not only a great many music programs, but a variety of interviews for Friday morning Connections, Metro, Metro Arts, A Public Affair, the Thursday Evening Call-in Show, Hempishperes, Live from Penny Lane, How on Earth science show, It's The Economy, and various other news and public affairs programs and segments. The volunteers, staff, and guests at KGNU have been instrumental in bringing a lot of diverse music and information to the public airwaves - the station is an important part of our community and I'm honored to have been associated with it for so long!

Not Milk!

As Joanne Cole, KGNU's Community Relations Director
said, "Who would have thought MILK??!!" Yep, that hour
interview with Robert Cohen, author of Not Milk, brought
out a lot of passion! Either way, I learned a lot and want
to thank Eva for taking these pix and handling the wild
telephones that day!

Connections:

On February 4th, 2005, I had the pleasure of speaking with Joel Edelstein about the beginnings of KGNU's Friday morning Connections program. Joel founded the program, as the show's only producer, when the US decided to invade Iraq during the first Gulf war. January 18, 1991 was the program's first airing. It was called War Talk.

War Talk offered a review of developments in the war that week and provided a forum for discussion. In that time of war fever, it was a place where members of the community who opposed the war could gain support from the knowledge that they were not alone. As a community forum in a time of war, Joel decided there would be no guests other than callers. As this was another difficult period in the history of American foreign policy, the telephone lines remained full throughout every broadcast! After the hostilities had ceased, at the end of March, the program's name was changed to Peace Talk.

After one year, Joel invited other producers to join him to create a new show. Connections first aired on February 21, 1992. Its mission: "Connecting People, Issues, and Ideas." Over the years there's been a small but stable "collective" of volunteers who produce the program each Friday morning. Generally we also rotate telephone duties between ourselves but have also been lucky to have regular assistance from folks like Eva Mesmer and others who have "pitched-in" when needed.

At the time of this entry, in 2005, our collective consisted of Joel Edelstein, Duncan Campbell, Tonja Loendorf, Kathy Partridge, Bob Gailer, Liz Lane and me. Sadly, early volunteer Paul Klite passed away in June, 2000 and is fondly remembered by our entire KGNU family. Connections has been around a long time and remains a vital and important feature on KGNU - I hope you'll tune in and join us this Friday morning!
