Institute for Sustainable Forestry TONIGHT
by Tanya Horlick
Tonight from 5:30 to 6 PM on KMUD, the Institute for Sustainable Forestry presents an interview with Sue Moloney, owner of Sue’s Organics, whose participation in the fight against old-growth logging included a 40-day fast on the steps of the state capitol. This program is part of the Institute’s ongoing Sustainable Forestry Journalism Project.
Tune in to KMUD Wednesday Dec 7th at 5:30pm (or find it in the archives later) to hear the story of how our beloved engineer and local entrepreneur Sue Moloney dropped everything to draw attention to the plight of old growth trees…

Giving Tuesday
By Dorothee Schaefer
On Tuesday Nov 29th, we had our mini-Drive for Giving Tuesday. Once again, you guys have responded to our call in a very generous way. Thank you so much. These funds, adding to the End of the Year checks that you keep sending us and some grants that we hope to get, will go towards the new studio’s boards, so that you stop hearing “Oh, there is a technical problem, sorry” and some building renovation.
Thanks to the volunteers and programmers who helped with this wonderful little community event (on the photos top to bottom, left to right ): Johnny, Ari and Ruby, Jordan, Nadine, Verde, Cecelia, Jasha Mae, behr, Dennis, Kate, Siena and Margie.
MAKENU live 

And at 8pm, the Cumbia band Makenu gave us a legendary live concert. Fiesta vibe all the way! 
Listen to the entire concert on Kmud archives
Scroll down to Backwards Down the Number Line, Tuesday 29th, 8pm.

Living With Your Dog comes to a close

Charlotte Peltz has taught us so much about our furry friends, for over 10 years, every Tuesday morning on Redwood Community Radio! We are sad to report that Charlotte is retiring from Living with your Dog on KMUD. Her tremendous depth of knowledge about our furry friends and willingness to offer such sound and helpful advice filled an important need in the community. We will miss you, Charlotte! 
This winter, KMUD will rebroadcast some “best of Charlotte” shows every other Tuesday morning at 9am, to honor Charlotte’s legacy and keep well-informed love of our pets alive. Stay tuned….

Sad Goodbye
Jack Glick “the Glickster” was a host of Jazz Feast, and its predecessor Jazz Recipe, for more than thirty years.  Initially he did the show every week, and later on was part of a rotation with Peggy, behr, and recently with Katie Jazz Lady. Jack died suddenly in mid November at his home in Whale Gulch.  We send our condolences to his wife Bernadette and to his family and friends. We will miss him.
Please listen to his last show here. The best way to remember him is to enjoy his beautiful shows.

Underwriter Spotlight : Arcata Artisans
by Patricia Tinkler, Underwriting Coordinator

The air was brisk and the mood was festive this past Saturday afternoon in Arcata. Christmas shopping was easy, if you like one of a kind, local art. Arcata Artisans on the square did not disappoint. Open nearly twenty years, this artist co-op anchors this bustling community hub. Artist Keith Schneider was in residence, chatting amiably about his colleagues’ artwork while working the room. We discussed the future of Arcata, and his hope for sustainable, smart growth while I photographed the gallery. These are spaces that coming gentrification can overwhelm. Let’s support local this holiday season!
