Russ Cole

 [UPDATE: Show posted below] 

KHSU listeners first heard young Russ Cole in the pre-dawn haze of Nov. 11 1976 as a studio guest. Few have a longer relationship with KHSU than Russ Cole, now known on-air as Gus Mozart. 

He celebrated his 40th anniversary of his own KHSU airshift on Monday's Music Box featuring vintage recordings (listen below) and songs from his first years on KHSU.  

La Voz

The past year's notable recordings come from wide, eclectic influences, with many of the favorite 2017 albums released were from women artists.  As with all of these type of year-end lists, this is a subjective look at albums, which emerged from huge piles of recordings that I went through the past year, that caught my ear as something unique, special and made me repeatedly play it over and over. 

What’s your favorite north coast nonprofit? What do you see them doing for the community? 

KHSU presents Charity Share, and you're invited to give that group a fundraising shout-out.

Giving Tuesday, the charitable alternative to Black Friday, asks you to give back to those groups working for a better community. And our area has literally hundreds of them.

This month, California 2nd District Congressman Jared Huffman released a draft legislation for his public lands bill. The idea for a bill like this has been discussed for years, and includes restoration, conservation, recreation, and natural management efforts. Huffman had several public meetings to hear comment about this draft and give the opportunity for constituents to give support or feedback. In this EcoNews Report, I spoke with Jared Huffman about his bill, and then we hear selected portions of the Eureka public comment meeting.

KHSU's Lorna Bryant, Peter Fretwell and Jessica Eden discuss the Voice of Diversity Initiative.
