Becky Meiers, Development Director for KBOO has started a GoFundMe so she can go to the Public Media Development and Marketing Conference this summer. She hopes to gain more broadcast-specific fundraising tools to share with grassroots community radio stations because there is a deep divide between corporate media and the kinds of resources available to non-commercial broadcasters – many community licensees and LPFM’s (like KBOG!) operate on next-to-nothing.
If you are able, please consider backing her campaign through GoFundMe – The future is community radio! Good luck Becky!
Have a listen – Compositions By Randy Hathaway
Randy Hathaway’s debut 2 CD set, Classical Guitar In America, was released in the Fall of 2017. Fifteen compositions are performed by eighteen musicians in various solo and ensemble configurations. Included within are thirteen guitarists, three vocalists, a flutist and violist
Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Randy’s compositions illustrate tonalities of North American, European and Latin origins. Depictions of l9th century American migrations, images of a cafe in Paris and themes in the Spanish spirit are exhibited . From substantial works of over 16 minutes to petite art songs, Randy’s style is recognizable throughout
Over 3 years in production, this uniquely immense project celebrates the classical guitar in a variety of different settings. Along with this recording, all compositions have been rendered into sheet music with ten artists contributing images for the covers. Check out his website here.
