Meighan served as Executive Producer of the award winning Kansas City documentary film “The Ordinance Project” Directed by Austin Williams. As a special education teacher, Meighan used a variety of musical genres in her classroom to increase or decrease a particular level of energy with her students. Though all of her experiences with music, two and a half years ago she discovered the depth and beauty of K -Pop music.
Patricia Doherty was born on the East Coast, and as the youngest of 4 children, she was destined to have eclectic musical taste. Patricia carved out her own niche, with a lean towards European 80’s alternative. In college, Patricia auditioned with 100 other applicants and was chosen for one of the 10 coveted DJ trainee spots for her college alternative radio station. She quickly moved up the training program and into having two “drive-time” shows. During her sophomore year, Patricia was elected into the role of Station Manager, and attended conferences in New York City as station representative. Within the last ten years, and while living in Southern California, Patricia’s son and daughter introduced her K-pop music. Upon her recent relocation back to the Kansas City area, she began the journey to become a programmer at KKFI, and joined forces with Meighan to help produce a K-pop radio show.
