Information & News from the KZYX General Manager

I will be posting news and information here about any changes occurring at the station. As you are probably aware, staff member Mary Aigner is retiring after 22 years with KZYX. She will still be producing the show DEAD AIR on Thursday nights. She has provided incredible service to the station for many years, in many different positions, including her current job as Program Director, and her previous jobs as Interim Station Manager, Membership Coordinator and Underwriting Sales Director.

Angela DeWitt has been named our new Interim Program Manager. The staff is working together to create a new job description for the Program Director, and when that is done (and budget permits) we will post the job widely and have an open hiring process.

Stay tuned more news and information soon!

Apocalypse Now? Music for the end, and for after that

Tonight, Dec. 21, 7 to 9 pm on Maps & Legends Radio: "Apocalypses Now?" Great change is often accompanied by great anxiety. In a time of great turmoil, violence and climate crisis, many have turned to projections from the Mayan calendar to proclaim an end-of-the-world scenario. However, I've heard some wise people say that nothing ends—it just changes into something else. Perhaps what's ending is our certainties, our habits, our customs—the end of the world as we know it. That's the title of a popular song by R.E.M., and we'll take it as our starting point for tonight's show. We'll hear surprisingly upbeat songs on the topic--the full title of R.E.M.'s song is: "It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)"—as well as moody, fearful, and angry songs. In the second hour, we'll take a look at prophecies and prophetic voices, before launching into songs about fresh beginnings and predictions of renewal and hope. Hear music from six decades of rock and roll, including Arcade Fire, Buddy Holly, U2, Timbuk 3, and more.
