  • Many KFAI programmers have set aside time during their shows to salute our recently departed friend (and former KFAI DJ) Willie Murphy. Willie was a frequent guest on our airwaves over the years, and we've gone digging through the archives to repost some of our favorite moments. Watch this space throughout the week for new/old shows, memorials and testimonials.

     

  • KFAI is encouraging all women, non-binary and femme members of the community to apply to produce a show for this year’s 24 hours of IWD programming taking place on March 8.

    Programs this year will be featured throughout the month of March to celebrate Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day on Thursday, March 8th. The theme for International Women’s Day 2019 is “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change.”

    The theme will focus on innovative ways in which we can advance gender equality and the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure.

  • Homelessness in Minneapolis has been in the news, of course, as hundreds of people have been living in tents for months along Hiawatha Avenue, and the City of Minneapolis, tribal leaders and other organizations are now helping some folks move into transitional “navigation centers”, which are long, heated tents that can shelter about 40 people each.

  • An amendment to the KFAI Bylaws adopted earlier this year by the Fresh Air Board of Directors has been approved and ratified by a vote of volunteers.

    Eighty-nine volunteers (of 245 eligible voters) participated in the approval/ratification process. All 89 votes were in favor of the Bylaws change; there were no “No” votes cast. Unlike an election where a simple majority of votes determines the outcome, changes to the KFAI Bylaws additionally require a quorum — a minimum of 25 percent of all eligible voters — to participate or the proposed change fails, regardless of the outcome of the Yes-No vote. The 89 voters constituted 36 percent of eligible volunteers, and exceeded the quorum necessary to pass.

  • A vote by KFAI volunteers to ratify recent Board-proposed Bylaws changes has one day yet to run. Over 70 motivated volunteers have voted already. Qualified KFAI volunteers — those who have volunteered a total of nine hours of their time over the three-month period of July-Sept. — are eligible to vote.
