VI.      Committee Reports:  

a. Program Committee – a.  Chloe Karl reported that we have several new applications for shows.  Linda Guebert is leaving and that will create a big hole in our programming.  Her show, Denim Alley will be greatly missed, as will Linda herself.  b. It is important that programmers get a person who has been trained on the studio equipment and who can lock up the station before that person fills in for the programmer.  Chloe will be distributing important information to all programmers about rules we must all follow to keep our FCC license.        

b. Underwriting – Written Report by Susan and Roberto Lozano.  There have been several renewals. There are now several underwriting spots that have 2 announcements on one CD.  Please play both at the top of the hour.

Fundraising / Events:  Net Proceeds from the “Sock Hop” were $757.  There was a lot of competition for that Friday night with other events in the county.  There are several ideas for upcoming events.  One is a Hispanic Folk Band and Dancers.  Second is a Reggae concert.  Third, Bring back Barry Melton in March 2020.  Also, Scottish singer Jim Malcolm will be performing in Lake County on January 31, 2020.  
   
e.  Website:  There is a website programmer’s piolet project with the hopes that soon every programmer will have a page on the website.  Fletcher reported that each programmer will have a page on the website with pictures, bio’s of programmers and even audio files from the programmer describing their show.
