Movers and Shakers on the Music Scene
by Dennis Maher, Music Director

The Critics, live on KMUD airwaves on Friday 24Th

 Some schedule juggling and swapping for March has Zoltar’s Flying Saucer Hat landing on Monday afternoons at 1 till 3 where you’ll find his eclectic and zany sonic eccentricities on a new show. He’s swapped spots with Kmud’s newest DJ Daniel who’s now calling his engaging show Land Of 1000 Dances. Though not on any map, you’ll find this promised land on Tuesday afternoons from 1 till 2:30.
Our programmers have plenty of great stuff in store for you this March. It’s a double header this month with Women’s History Month and our Spring Membership Drive sharing the calendar.
Friday the 10th on It’s All About The Music, Mumzer will be interviewing Terrence Kelly, Director of the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir and Jenni Simpson, Director of Arcata’s Redwood Interfaith Gospel Choir. They will be talking (and singing) about the gospel music tradition, the history of their choirs and the upcoming workshop and concert in Arcata.
Our Spring Membership Drive will be from Tuesday the 21st until Friday the 31st. Notably, Humboldt County’s own, The Critics, will be in the Kmud Studio performing live on Friday the 24th promoting the release of their debut alternative rock album entitled “Miserable & Melodramatic”. Catch them during Kim’s Musical Possibilities show in the afternoon 3 till 5.

KMUD Women
by Dorothee, Membership Coordinator

KMUD has been Women-led and driven since its inception. The general managers have nearly always been female. Impressively, all KMUD News Directors have been women. And a good half of our eclectic programmers identify as women, and transmit it on the air.
On March 8th, International Women’s Day, tune in for some special programming. To recognize Women’s History Month, KMUD DJs will be featuring more women’s music and voices throughout the month.

Lyrics by Wolfmandu – Chorus and music by The Julie Ruin

You girls rock!!!!!

by Lauren Schmitt, News Director

KMUD Nation has had an eventful start to 2023. Our news team has been working around the clock to keep listeners informed on what seems like a never-ending series of natural disasters and newsworthy events.
KMUD has aired numerous stories highlighting the plight of local residents, and have amplified the voices of first responders, emergency services, and neighbors helping neighbors.

I myself have been 14 days without power, waking up to a foot of fresh snow nearly every morning. That won’t stop our team from bringing you the news every weeknight at 6pm. Like all of us, I have relied on my community to help keep my basic needs met which has allowed me to keep the news on air.

Since February 21st, online metrics show that over 128,000 people have relied on our news and emergency updates. We couldn’t do this without your support. KMUD news wishes all of you the best during these trying times.

Here is a quick list of resources:

If you are in need of assistance leaving your property or would like to request a welfare check for a neighbor or family member, please contact the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office 707-445-7251
or the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office at 707-463-4086.

Call 9-1-1 to report downed power lines, trees, and other life threatening emergencies.

“Peace shall be established by peaceful means”
by Dorothee, Membership Coordinator

I have recently been so touched by a few shows about the war in Ukraine. KMUD always has promoted peace via engaging shows, which look at facts openly and don’t follow the mainstream mediatization of war presidents.
I recommend :
Heroes and Patriots on Thursday, March 2nd at 9am
and Alternative Radio on Monday 6th at 9am.
Check out the archives, be ready to feel angry and sad, and want to rise up!

Underwriter Spotlight:
The Peg House
by Patrica Tinkler, Underwriting and Traffic Coordinator

Just across from the Standish-Hickey State Recreational Area in Leggett, The Peg House is a wonderful place to grab a burger and beer and if lucky, listen to some live music in the courtyard. Owners Diana and Gary Ballard may be looking at an exit strategy as they hope to retire, but their welcoming presence is evident in every detail. Late last summer I took a break from a long road trip and left totally impressed with the service, the food and the beer on tap (Russian River’s Pliny the Elder! which is highly allocated, as we say in the bar business). As I sat enjoying my meal, I marveled at the gorgeous garden, full of sunflowers, dahlias and tomatoes. This was clearly a labor of love!

Humboldt Women In Radio
is happening tonight as a part of the 7th Annual Zero to Fierce event
at the Arcata Playhouse.
