Redwood Community Radio Board of Directors
April 12, 2016, 3:30 pm
Healy Senior Center, Redway CA
Dan Murphy called the meeting to order, reading the mission and vision statements.  Sarah Scudder was appointed stacker.
Present: Board-Appointed Representatives: Christine Doyka, Mark Marchese, Treasurer Sarah Scudder
Members’ Representatives:  Cody “Comfy” Dillon, Vice President Siena Klein, Maria Savage
Programmers’ Representatives:  Secretary Jack Frybulous, President Dan Murphy
Station Manager Jeanette Todd
Absent:  Programmer Representative Jimmy Durschlag
Approval of March minutes
The March minutes were approved by unanimous vote.
Approval of agenda
Murphy moved to amend the agenda by adding the seating of new members next, followed by discussion of the appointed representative seat and appointment of officers.  Passed unanimously.  Todd asked Board to strike the syndication and policy manual items from Unfinished Business, noting that the Policy Committee had not met to consider either item.  Agenda, with changes, passed unanimously.
Seating of new directors
Murphy thanked Marchese, Klein and Frybulous for their service to RCR.  Member Representative Rob Bier and Programmer Representative Zack Doopi Gonzales took their seats for three-year terms.  Appointment to the open seat was deferred to the May meeting, with Mark Marchese currently the only candidate for the position.  The following were tentatively appointed officers by unanimous votes, confirmation of that to come at the Board retreat:  President, Dan Murphy; Vice President, Jimmy Durschlag; Treasurer, Sarah Scudder; Secretary, Rob Bier.
Open time 
Jama Chaplin challenged a comment made by Frybulous at the March meeting to the effect that new motions could be made at any time.  She pointed out that this would defeat the whole idea of an agenda, calling that a social contract with the membership that could only be altered by action of the full Board.  Murphy acknowledged the error.
Management report
Todd reported that the pledge drive was off to a good start, due in part to overlapping the last day of the silent drive with the first day of the on-air drive.  She said tickets for the Amy Goodman event were moving slowly, although the meet-and-greet was doing well.  Todd reiterated her concern about the large amount of staff time it is taking to implement Rivendell, suggesting that it may be necessary to reconsider the worth of the entire project.  She also repeated the need for Board packet items to be completed and submitted to her earlier.  
Finance Committee report
Scudder noted that personnel expenses are running ahead of budget for several reasons, notably due to the staff time being expended on Rivendell.  She said that topic would be taken up at the April Finance Committee meeting.  Although due Jan. 1, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting payment actually arrived in November and was partially expended before the end of the year.  That was repaid, but the CPB figure shown for Jan. 1, 2016 may not be accurate.  If so, it will be corrected.  Bookkeeper Dian Griffin needs to provide better, more timely reporting to Scudder and the Board.  Murphy said those issues could be addressed in the impending new contract with Griffin.  Dillon suggested finding volunteer help for her.  Scudder noted that Harry Jasper, former administrator at Joseph Phelps Community Hospital, has expressed a willingness to assist with finances.
Unfinished business
Security lighting.  David Katz has volunteered to provide lights, similar to those he has installed at Solar Suites, across the street from KMUD.  The grounds committee will take up particulars of the work at its May meeting.
Mural.  Chad has been delayed by personal affairs, but is enthusiastic about the project and will provide a drawing of his proposed design, perhaps by the May Board meeting.
New business
CABs and Face Book.  The northern Community Advisory Board has created its own Face Book page.  The consensus from discussion was that this is not desirable; it divides RCR’s interests and public presence.  Northern chair Emma Nation will be asked to removed the KMUE page and do all posting to the existing FB page.

Dan’s motion that item C, Syndication policy, be removed from Unfinished Business, and agenda approval passed with identical votes: 8 yea’s, 1 abstention.

VII.Consent calendar – Dan’s motion that item A (items B-E having been removed during agenda approval) be tabled passed unanimously.
A. The Board voted in Sept. to accept Policy’s recommendations regarding changes in Elections policy on a provisional basis. Does the Board wish to make those changes permanent? – Dan (29 Feb.): “We should vote on [this] after elections.”
B. As it has been superseded by newer policy, the following clause is stricken from Policy 4.6: “Regarding emergency fund sources, RCR shall: Set up and maintain a $20,000 line of credit with an acceptable financial institution.”
C. The following phrase is stricken from Policy 5.4.2: The Station Manager is responsible for all hires, except of course his/her own.
D. Policy 2.3.7 is deleted. It reads “Correspondence Secretaries. See Policy 2.1.5 on the two roles for Correspondence Secretaries.”
E. Policy 4.11, which currently reads - In order to use these funds, Management must submit a written proposal to the Board, including a repayment plan, and the Board must approve this proposal. - is re-written as follows: In order to use these funds, Management must first submit a written proposal and repayment plan to the Board.
VIII.Finance Com. report – CCUSH was again requested to make another presentation to the Board, this one having to do with non-profit (not personal) finances. The need for better financial information was again repeated. Dian has created a line for deferred income. Jimmy reminded the Board of phone calls should be made to unpaid pledgers before the next drive starts.
IX.Unfinished business
A. Strategic plan, check-in. (JT): Programming should be included, incl. time-slots. Exemplify the part of our mission about being the voice of the voiceless. Encouraging people to participate: programming that makes people upset (!) which makes us different from public radio.
B. Security enhancements, update: Maria will ask David Katz if he can recommend an electrician, and get more info about permits. Jeanette suggests putting in one light first, to see how it looks and functions.
C. Syndication policy [previously removed from consideration].
D. Procedures for Board decisions by email. Discussion included Sarah’s and Cody’s points that whoever initiates a Board poll should be the one at a distinct moment to know when to communicate the Board’s decision, or else delegate someone to do so.
E. Changes to Policy - Management Evaluation. [For proposed changes, see Dan’s Feb. 29 email.] Dan moved to approve suggested changes. Christine seconded; unanimously passed [8-0].
X.New business
A. Mural project: storage containers. Dan wants to “let Chad loose”, and fund @ $400 [to come from Grounds budget] for materials. Siena asked for a design. 
B. Appoint to Mediation Committee: Margaret Lewis and Paul Encimer. The Board voted to confirm their seating, and did so, with 7 yea’s, 1 abstention.
C. Policy manual: access to, and procedures for updating. Jack stated he had no objection to use of Google docs, and that we use that as well as the Word-doc-based manual until we’re sure of the direction we want to move in. Cody moved to table, Jack seconded.

Tues., Feb. 9, 2016 – 3:30
Healy Sr. Ctr., Redway, CA
I.Call to order: Meeting ground rules; opening comments from the President
Roll call:
Christine Doyka, Treasurer Sarah Scudder
members’ reps
Vice-president Siena Klein, Cody Dillon, Maria Savage
programmers’ reps
Secretary Jack Frybulous, President Dan Murphy, Jimmy Durchslag
station manager
Jeanette Todd
Mark Marchese
II.Approval of Dec. and Jan. minutes was unanimous.
III.Approval of agenda. Jimmy moved that 1. procedures for Board decisions by email, and 2. Board members taking individual actions be added. Siena seconded. Unanimously approved.
IV.Open time – Rob Bier and Zack Gonzales were present.
V.Management report – JT points out that p. 30 in the packet (what’s legal in copyright law) is important reading for making policy. Station Activity Survey is also included. Public file will need to be digital by 2018. Proposal to hire SquareSpace to host our website will be forthcoming, probably in May; Syndey Morrone has offered to assist with implementation. Emergency Response 
Team has 3 facets: broadcast (how we would stay on-air in an emergency), the county’s vision, and the news room response; more on this soon. CPB non-compliance fines are listed. Amy Goodman performs Apr. 16, incl. a 40-person meet-and-greet prior to her lecture. Programming Directors are looking to revise with Programmer Reps the Programmers’ Agreement. Simon has asked for follow-up on a grant to get a new generator.
VI.Discussion, questions for Management – Jimmy offered comments on Dev’t Coordinator job description (p. 35) and differences between a Coordinator and Director; also asked if we can get health insurance for staff. Dan commented about May for Block Party, could it be in July, or coincide with a pledge drive. JT says it’s our birthday, and we should keep it close to the date.
VII.Consent calendar – Unanimously approved.
A. 2nd approval: Two changes are made to the section of Policy 2.3.5 [Board communications guidelines] called Meeting and Minutes:
i. This text, the entirety of ¶ 3, is deleted: Management shall arrange for an audio recording of the meeting, provide a copy to the Secretary within three days, and archive the original at the station for two years. Other Board members may also request a copy. Management will provide copies to the public upon request for $10 per copy.
ii. In ¶ 4, the phrase and/or the audio recording is also deleted. ¶ 4 reads: The Secretary shall take the best notes possible while participating fully in all discussions, read back motions as requested, and shall use those notes, others’ notes, and/or the audio recording to assist in producing accurate minutes. Documents approved by the Board will be included in their entirety in the minutes, or, long documents may be identified by date of draft.
B. Elections Committee appointments: Jimmy Durchslag will run Programmer elections; Maria will do Members election; Siena will be the overseer and do binders. 
VIII.Finance Com. report – Sarah: 2015 payroll taxes not yet incorporated into figures. 2016 budget shows a $400 deficit, but low-balling of fund-raising estimates nonetheless puts RCR in a good position. Q: Would the Board prefer a partial month that’s recent, or a whole month from a month ago. JT: would rather see what’s more up-to-date. Just received P&L for 2016. Jimmy pointed out: $121K profit from 2015 is incorrect, since 2016 grant revenue ($95K) was received in 2015. Also, all funds has been re-paid to Fitch and other funds. Net income for 2015 reported as just under $29K, but est. $20K is more accurate. Pacifica subscription (for Oct. through Sept.) was not billed till January, and that the bill has always arrived randomly; this does mean our 2015 surplus is $5K lower. We’re in the black! And look forward to being more solidly in the black. Jimmy: The budget shows a small break-even for 2016, but we believe the income is under-stated; 2015 fund-raising was surpassed by $20K; a 19-page report of 2015 profit and loss for all events is posted at the station.
IX.Unfinished business
A. Strategic plan, check-in: Board and Staff meeting next Tuesday. Sarah said she will meet with Jeanette to talk about funding aspects of the plan.
B. Update on security enhancements: property and people. Sarah asked for a list of names of people living close-by who are willing to come help with situations. JT says the parking lot is very dark at night, that we’ve been talking about this ever since she’s arrived, and re-iterates the need to light up the parking lot with tamper-proof lights. We got a quote for lighting up the entire property, vs. an underground cord to a pole. JT asked could the Board chase $4K to light up the front and put up a pole?
Jimmy pointed out the need to be strategic in approaching the community to fund specific projects. Sarah re-focused on the parking lot, and would feel comfortable leaving the rest of the building as-is, if we lit up the front. Dan: “and sealed the backyard”.
Sarah moved to approve $7500 from New Reserve, and from the Music Library account, to pay for lights in the parking lot and front of building. Jack seconded. Unanimously approved.
Cody will call Jim Truitt. Jeanette will call PGE. Cody suggested a Building and Grounds meeting. Maria will talk to David Katz. Dan will talk to Cynthia about the list of people to call to deal with situations, and will bring up at the Programmers’ Meeting (Feb. 20) training for those people.
X.New business
A. Procedures for Board decisions by email – all agree that it is important to be able to distinguish between requests for information and requests for action. Board members’ gathering information does not and should never require prior approval.
B. Board members taking individual actions: while not meaning to signal that individual initiative in getting balls rolling is a bad thing, it is the Board’s strong consensus that it’s best when all Board members take potentially significant actions under the umbrellas of the committees with which they are involved. Grave concerns were expressed about Board members representing themselves as Board members to representatives of other entities.
XI.Committee Reports
A.Programmers’ Reps – Next Programmers’ meeting: Sat., Feb. 20. Jimmy will do promo, Jack will email the Ps agenda, Dan will make signs for station, incl. that you are required to attend at least one event, etc. JT add to agenda participate in drives; reminder of one meeting a year, enforcement. Security. Agreement being updated: no uploading of shows.
B.Members’ Reps – Siena: a member requested that by-laws be updated on the website. 
C.Community Advisory Boards. Emma has set up a meeting. Jeanette asked if there was a response required to the letter the Board sent Emma. Dan asks about re-invigorating a central CAB. Siena: we are working at establishing a coastal CAB.
D.Correspondence Secretary – Christine.
E.Development – Siena. Submitted notes from the Jan. 19 meeting. Floor space at Mateel: 300 + 50 on the mezzanine. Discussion of breaking down the stage, and putting screen(s) outside. 300 @ $50 is break-even. Meet and greet before she speaks for 40: the first forty to put up $1000? Jeanette asked what folks here would pay: many said 50 max, Sarah said 100 with dinner. Our cost is ~ $12K. Jeanette is on top of getting a calendar for Development. JT was reimbursed $22K for fund-raising expenses last year!
F.Pledge Drive [was made a standing committee 11/15] – Jimmy D. Start Tues., Apr. 12 through Tues., the 26th. Everyone to write a promo for giving early, and ending drive early if we reach our goal. Jack will write a script for video production. Call meeting with Ruby, Bridget, Nate, Brittany.
G.Policy – Cody. Meeting next week, didn’t meet last month. Need to start working on getting old policies updated into manual.
H.Building & Grounds – Dan and Cody. Dan will do a promo to recruit for this committee. Mention in the promo a work date. Sealing off the backyard. JT: working to get a storage container.
I.Mediation – Christine. None, but Siena says a meeting is needed. Christine will call for a meeting. JT: A Programmer is requesting a grievance hearing, and is hoping for an official recommendation. But maybe it’s not complicated enough for Grievance? Or that it’s too difficult to get the GP together?
J.Emergency Preparedness – Jeanette. Bringing all the groups working independently together: what county expects from us in an emergency, what we intend to do to have the correct components, and on-air staff is prepared. Next meeting? Get a studio-transmitter link, but needs line-of-sight to the Mud and to Pratt Mtn.
K.Management Evaluation – Dan. Jimmy, Peter Ryce, Angela Zane, Christine. Report coming on Apr. 1. Peter’s writing a couple of questions. Jeanette will complete a self-evaluation. Discussion of appropriateness of getting feedback from listeners, and movement away from annual reviews.
L.Hiring – Jeanette, Christine and Dan. Shanin? Next Wed at 1.
M.Elections – Siena and Jimmy. Rob our only Member running. 2 candidates for Programmer election. Inform membership no election. Noel would retain her appointed seat one more year. Margaret Lewis is 2nd candidate for 2nd seat. No election for either Mediation or Members.
N.Networking – Jack.

More about Jeno


Fueled by an enigmatic mystique, Jenö has remained one of San Francisco’s most beloved and sought after DJs for over two decades. Developing a passionate love for music from an early age he spent several years as a punk musician & songwriter, before discovering djing and falling into the vibrant London warehouse party scene of the mid 80s. Once Acid House fever hit the UK, Jenö never looked back, becoming known for his heady Whoosh parties, and his involvement in the early days of the notorious Tonka Sound System.


Inspired by Tonka’s cheeky f**k the rules attitude, and in search of a more psychedelic groove, Jenö, along with his British cohorts Garth, Markie & Thomas headed to San Francisco in the early 90s. This was the beginning of the now world renowned Wicked Crew, who were instrumental in firing up the SF dance music scene with their now legendary “Full Moon” parties. These wild & free outdoor gatherings were the foundation for an eclectic and soulful underground dance scene, and the driving force of the growing rave community on the West Coast.

By the mid 90s, Jenö‘s musical talents and commitment to the dance floor had helped inspire and define a new “San Francisco sound,” bringing international attention to the city’s burgeoning dance music scene. With all eyes on San Francisco, DMC sought out Jenö’s talents for a mix on their prestigious CD series “United DJs of America.” Joining the ranks of legends Frankie Knuckles, David Morales, Little Louie Vega and Doc Martin, he put together a mix of fresh local music and classic house sounds that helped put San Francisco firmly on the dance music map.


In 1995, he and the Wicked Crew took things to the next level, importing a custom made Tony Andrews designed Turbosound system from the UK. With Wicked very much in demand there was nothing else to do but hit the road, piling into a beautifully restored 1947 Grayhound bus with their own band of merry pranksters, delivering their soulful psychedelic sounds with a rock’n’roll attitude that took the U.S by storm. The touring continued through the late 90s, including some unforgettable stops at Burning Man, Reggae on the River, and even a Jane’s Addiction concert in 2001.

As the new millennium approached, Jenö took his talents to the studio and began producing his own unique take on dance music. He met all expectations with several remixes on fellow Wicked DJ Garth’s Greyhound label, including the internationally acclaimed “Stormy Weather” remix of Rocket’s “People.” This was followed by remixes on Cheeky, Turnaround Sound, NRK & others. Jenö’s production talents aren’t limited to the dance floor, having worked on some dark brooding indie music in recent years, and currently producing live acid house for his monthly “Cult of the Acid House” party.

In 2004, Wicked disbanded after 13 years of amazing collaboration. Undeterred, Jenö and Garth have kept the spirit alive with their regular Back2Back appearances up and down the West Coast; a fun loving and boundary pushing musical romp through the last 40 years of dance music. In 2011, Wicked reformed with a “Twenty Years of Disco Glory,” reunion tour encompassing 13 cities across the country. The success of the tour has put a vital missing piece back into the global dance community.

Jenö’s mythical mixing talents have translated far and wide with a diverse international cult following. He has demonstrated these talents on the decks in the premier clubs across the globe, including the legendary Twilo in NYC, The End, Fabric & Ministry of Sound in London, Unit in Tokyo and the Rex Club in Paris. Jenö continues to perform & present music with a unique and psychedelic perspective, djing regularly again across the US, as well as hosting his own musically mischievous cult radio show – Noise from the Void, broadcast bi-monthly with the changing cycle from Full Moon & New Moon.
