Re: “Honoring Humboldt's Knight of Musicality

Great piece about this show honoring Timmy Gray. Come see one of the last two performances this weekend! One correction: Barking Dogma was a cool band that Tim was in during the mid-to-late 90's. The studio where Gray has worked for many years is called Big Bang.

Re: “Letter from Legislators: KHSU Gutting a 'Slap in the Face'

The station was shutdown last Thursday (one week ago today), not Friday. But that's a minor point. Otherwise, great letter to the Chancellor. I hope he's listening.

Re: “Amid Controversy Over New Policy, KHSU Volunteer Tried to Thwart Studio Move

Art, I think you might be on to something, about multiple HSU accounts. Why would anyone "dislike" that listeners enjoy hearing real people doing live radio? Because they can get programmed, bland, non-spontaneous radio anywhere these days. And then general managers wonder why people aren't listening. Because safe, sanitized, predictable radio is BORING. Which is how KHSU will end up, when the University is done with it. If you want an actual example of sabotage, it's what HSU is doing right now. Despicable.

Bring on the dislikes Humboldt State!

Re: “Amid Controversy Over New Policy, KHSU Volunteer Tried to Thwart Studio Move

HSU is not on alert. And, as relates to this inflated "controversy", really never was. At no point was any facility related to KHSU in any danger whatsoever. This was a frustrated longtime stalwart volunteer reacting to a new policy that severely restricts volunteer programmers from doing their work at the station. He was upset, and made a very brash and unfortunate move. Stupid? Yes. But what he was responding to is the unrelenting attacks by HSU management on both the paid staff and volunteers, under the guise of their "safety". Also, please note that the NC Journal has recently formed an alliance with KHSU, and they seem to be falling into lockstep by repeating the administrations portrayal of volunteers as uncooperative and unruly. This is not objective "journalism". Maybe the Journal should consider doing an investigative report on the continued harassment and intimidation that staff is being subjected to daily by the current GM. Get to work on that, very real, issue Thadeus.
