Independent Media Must Stay Strong!


Local public stations like KZYX are unique because our daily programming is tailored to the communities we serve. We have the means to build bridges between those communities no matter how far apart they may be.

                  KZYX exists because of you. In these uncertain times, our mission to keep our listeners informed, entertained, and connected is more critical than ever. As the year draws to a close, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the station you rely on for updates of all kinds – local, regional, national, and international.

                  This December, we’re trying something new to complement our traditional year-end outreach. KZYX is taking part in a nationwide fundraising effort, sponsored by the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, a network of small stations like ours, dedicated to supporting each other’s efforts to keep independent media strong. Called “GiveBig to MyStation”, the campaign is a 48-hour event for local public stations across the nation on December 29th and 30th. Your donation comes directly to KZYX, but by adding your voice to this effort, you are encouraging the work of community stations like ours all over the country. You can learn more about it by visiting the GiveBig to MyStation website.

                  Whether you send in your donation today, in the enclosed envelope, or or donate through the GiveBig to MyStation campaign, your contribution is critical to the survival of a rare and precious resource - independent media - right here in Mendocino County. Thanks for doing what you can!

On Monday, June 23, I talked with journalist Doug Fine about his new book Hemp Bound:
Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution.
An insightful and humorous exploration of the impact one simple plant —outlawed in the States until just weeks ago—might have on our lives and our planet.

A recording of this program is now available for listening or downloading by clicking here.

No, drapes made of hemp, if smoked, will not make you high. But given the almost 80 year prohibition against growing it in the US, which finally ended just last month, you'd think that must have been the justification. In Hemp Bound, Fine concludes that instead of being outlawed, we should have been growing hemp aplenty all along. He illuminates not only our colorful history with hemp--Betsy Ross' first Stars & Stripes was sewn out of hemp fabric--but, more hopefully, our promising future with the plant.

After visiting with researchers already engaged in unlocking hemp's potential and entrepreneurs profiting from the plant's versatility, Fine was a believer. Hemp, he discovered, can be sustainably used
in biofuel, car parts and building materials (while being carbon-negative). It makes pesticides and herbicides unnecessary, remediates poisoned land and is drought resistant. Hemp seeds are nutritious and higher in omegas than fish or flax seed oils. And no doubt there are many other benefits and uses that will be discovered now that it can once again be legally grown.

Fine has reported from five continents for The Washington Post, Wired, Salon, The New York Times, Outside, National Public Radio, and U.S. News & World Report and is the author of three previous books:
- Too High to Fail: Cannabis and the New Green Economic Revolution;
- Farewell, My Subaru: An Epic Adventure in Local Living; and
- Not Really an Alaskan Mountain Man.
Despite such successes, Doug is quick to note that he still milks his goats one teat at a time.

Community Advisory Board to Meet in Ukiah

 The KZYX Community Advisory Board will hold its next meeting on Wednesday, December 7th at the Ukiah Library, 105 No Main St, from 6 – 8 pm.

The CAB is composed of independent station members who are neither station staff nor Board members. Its purpose is to provide feedback to the station's Board of Directors, review the station's programming goals, make non-binding recommendations, and to advise the Board of Directors on how the station can best serve the communities of our area. Meetings of the Community Advisory Board are open to the public, and time is allotted for public comment.
