April Newsletter


We would like to send a very special Thank You to the President of our Board of Directors, Chanin Stein, and Member Representative, Holly Kreb, who are both finishing up their terms this April. The station is in a better place because of the time, hard work, and dedication they put into serving the KMUD community. You can continue to hear Chanin on Moon River Meandering every other Thursday from 10 am to noon and Holly as an Underwriter for Flood Plain Produce. We are so grateful for your continued generosity. 

This Membership Drive felt special to the heart of the KMUDers, almost as if we hadn’t seen each other for 3 years! Finally we reunited in the studios, saw people’s smiles, collaborated with newbies on the mic and gathered 5 or more programmers in the studio talking about their love for the Mud. And the little Mixer Party last Friday? Wonderful! Not a big party, but such a good vibe of just being together again and all accompanied by great musicians, a cardboard jukebox and home -made kombucha!

Or on KMUD archives, for their live perfomance on New release Friday March 31st from 3 to 5.30pm
Thank you all for your support, much needed and appreciated.

News from the Newsroom!
by Lauren Schmitt, News Director

KMUD would like to introduce reporter Neroli Devaney, who joined the newsroom in March and will be covering all things Arcata. Neroli was born and raised in Arcata. At UC Davis, she first dipped her toes into radio at the student station KZSC. She programmed a show called Queen Beats which featured all women in hip hop, as well as many other shows, including some news! She currently sits as the station manager of Humboldt Hot Air; an Arcata based internet radio station she brought to life in 2021 through Playhouse Arts. She’s always loved what KMUD does for the community and is really excited to get involved in such a great station. Here she is with her #1 pal, Leo.
Here are the recent stories preceded by Neroli:
Arcata City Council members discuss the mid year budget report & new kayak ramp
Arcata City Council and Planning Commission Discuss Sea Level Rise

by Dorothee, Membership Coordinator

CounterSpin, hosted by Janine Jackson, has been a KMUD syndicated show for over 30 years. It provides a critical examination of the major stories every week, and exposes what corporate media might have missed in their own coverage. CounterSpin highlights censored stories and exposes biased and inaccurate coverage, while examining the power of corporate influence and sexism, racism and homophobia in the news.
Every Sunday on KMUD from 12 to 12.30pm.

Programmer/Engineer Highlight

Kevin first came to Humboldt in 83 to work on Salmon Restauration and always listened to KMUD. He has been here and away since then, but participated to KMUD’s building remodel at the time of the acquisition.  In the last year, he learnt the KMUD engineering art and is now helping on The business show on Tuesdays, on Thank Jah on Fridays and on Don’t get trouble on your mind on Saturdays. And recently he entered the Wild River Radio rotation as a DJ on 4th Sundays. 
He says he used to be shy, but
for KMUD he gave up shyness.


Underwriter Spotlight:
Redway Liquor and Deli
by Patrica Tinkler, Underwriting and Traffic Coordinator

Longtime KMUD supporters, the Formosa family, are owner-operators of Redway Liquor and Deli.  Their store, a mainstay in Redway, offers wine, spirits, soft drinks, tobacco, newspapers and magazines, pantry items and an awesome, reasonably priced deli. My husband and I are regulars, grabbing sandwiches several times a week, and grateful for the fair prices on our limited budget. Chelsea, a clerk, said it was “the working man’s deli” and Alonzo, David and Sita’s son, laughingly called it “liquor subsidized burgers.” However they do it, the deli puts out fresh lunchtime offerings, a daily special and quick slices of pizza if you don’t have time to order in advance. With lunches half the cost of other local choices, you can afford to be generous, so don’t forget to tip!
Redway Liquor and deli at (707) 923-3913
