Kate Klein’s last radio show


On March 30th, 2008, KMUD's longtime music director and on-air personality Kate Klein was on the air from 1:30 to 3:00 pm with her occasional show "Healing Factor." In this show she invited listeners to call in with their healing wisdom. Very few people were aware that Kate had been diagnosed with cancer just a short few days before that. It turned out that this was going be her very last radio show of her life.

Due to a power outage none of the automated recording equipment worked correctly, but thanks to another programmer, Bob "Delux" Biniarz, who happened to turn on his recorder, we can bring you her "Swansong" as she herself announced it.

KMUD Music Director Passes Away

Kate Klein Known For Her Passion For Art, Dance, Nature

The local arts community lost one of its greatest supporters on April 15, when KMUD Music Director Kate Klein passed away at Jerold Phelps Community Hospital in Garberville. Klein, who turned 56 on April 10, was diagnosed with cancer just three weeks before her death.

A strong, passionate presence at KMUD, where she had served as music director for nine years, Klein was best known to regional audiences for her long-running "KMood" show, where she encouraged listeners to call in with "words of wisdom" that were subsequently aired on the program. One of the station's most dedicated volunteers, she spent countless hours working on fundraisers and benefits, and was often seen with a camera in hand, photographing people doing what they loved most. "Her portrait photos captured some of the best moments at KMUD," recalled former News Director Estelle Fennell, who spent the better part of two decades working with Klein.
