For our show on June 6th, we are celebrating KKFI – now is the pledge drive! Listeners are aware that EcoRadio KC is produced weekly by KKFI volunteers, and we need to ask you to support KKFI, YOUR Community Radio Station. We bring you vital information underserved or ignored by mainstream media.
We are all on-air this hour, Darnell Hunt, Terri Wilke, Richard Mabion, Brent Ragsdale and Craig Lubow. We pride ourselves on digging in and sharing the issues that entertain and inform our listeners by providing a curated, unique and independent voice. Remember, KKFI is supported by our listeners, local businesses and organizations that share our mission.
It costs at least $60 to broadcast one hour of EcoRadio KC. If you would like to own an hour of EcoRadio KC, please call us now at 888-931-0901 or go online to https://kkfi.org/ and click the donate button.
If you do this when EcoRadio is live, we get to thank you live!
Share KKFI’s mission of providing an independent voice to information underserved or ignored by mainstream media. You can become a sustaining member!
The crew of EcoRadio KC – Terri Wilke, Brent Ragsdale, Richard Mabion, Craig Lubow and Darnell Hunt will bring you excerpts from shows placed since the most recent pledge drive. You will hear about the AltEn plant in Mead NE that fouled the environment while producing ethanol. We will play information about PLAN, Planetary Limits Academic Network, which aims to raise awareness about critical challenges facing the human endeavor in this century by building a network of scholars. We will hear snippets of our shows on solar, Citizens Climate Lobby, KC Farm School and building up our inner-city communities by providing training and jobs to build a greener world. And that’s not all! So many interesting topics, so little time.
Please stay tuned to hear ideas for positive change.
We at EcoRadio KC are glad to encourage awareness and protection of our world. Our goal is to assure our listeners are aware of how we can create a sustainable present for a sustainable future!
This will be a great radio hour! We hope you can tune in!
George Carlin said “we (meaning people in general) are arrogant to think we (usually meaning they) are a threat to the planet. This planet put up with dinosaurs for 165 million years then waited another 65 million before putting up with people. Do any of you think people, humans, can last 165 million years?”
