Zoom is Here!!!

The KBO studio computer is set up ... and is ready to Zoom!!!

Zoom is fully integrated with the studio board -- zoomers can hear incoming phone calls, and vice versa.

If you are interested in doing a show remotely (your board operator still has to be in the studio), or if you want to invite several guests... you can do it!!

The instructions are here : https://krs.kpfz.org   For a first glimpse, maybe look at this video tutorial: https://krs.kpfz.org/VIDS/KBO-Studio-Walk-through.mp4

You will need a board operator who knows Windows computers at a basic level (how to log on, open a browser, load email and click on a link or two!) plus someone who can set up a zoom meeting. 

If interested, email kbo@kpfz.org

Led by vocalist Lester Chambers, from the pioneering '60s psychedelic soul group The Chambers Brothers; bassist Pete Sears, a founding member of Jefferson Starship who has played with everyone from Rod Stewart to Jimi Hendrix; and founder/guitarist Roger McNamee. Their incredible chemistry shines through in their live performances and the recent release of an album featuring the Chambers Brothers classics Time Has Come Today, People Get Ready and Let's Get Funky. Moonalice also features esteemed members Barry Sless (lead guitar and pedal steel), Mookie Siegel (keyboards), Grammy winner John Molo (drums), along with Lester's dynamic son Dylan Chambers, and Erika, Rachel, and Chloe Tietjen of acclaimed Americana band the T Sisters. Moonalice has a renegade spirit and an ethos of love, peace, and happiness that permeates everything they do.

Tribute to Carolyn Hawley Saturday Oct 15 2022 4-5 pm

Thanks to those who attended (by stream, zoom and phone). Of course the station was off-air so nobody heard it on 88.1 FM
There were problems in the zoom room due to signal distortion, but the studio recording is good. I'll  re-run it (with some light editing) on October 29 and then post it online.


KPFZ Wordweavers will be holding a tribute to Carolyn 4-5 pm Saturday October 15, 2022. Alan Fletcher is the host, and her son Lorin is co-host.

You can listen on-air, streaming via kpfz.org, or you can join a Zoom meeting  (which will be melded with the studio).

The studio line is 707-263-3435

The stream is  HERE   Warning : the stream lags the live show by up to a minute!

For those who want to zoom:

 

  • The Zoom link is: HERE Check the Zoom CHAT for the current status  
  • You can also Zoom by phone: 669-900-9128 US (San Jose - other numbers are in the first comment)
    Meeting ID: 827 2276 1174 #
    Participant ID : #
    Passcode: 201420 #

We will accept phone calls and comments by zoom attendees after about 4:15. We will be playing selections from her KPFZ Wordweavers shows, and will take calls after each segment of  music ends.

A recording of the show will be posted on KPFZ in ... about a week. The link will be in this post.

 

Carolyn was born in Indiana, and studied music at Mills College, Berkeley. She moved to Ukiah in 1969, where she was a founder of the Ukiah Symphony Orchestra. Her "biggest" piece is the "Russian River Mass", with orchestra and choir. Her "smallest" and perhaps  most beautiful are her tone poems of birds and animals around her hill-top house in Nice.

In addition her "serious" performances, she played frequently at the Blue Wing Saloon in Upper Lake.  
She was also a skilled artist, and held exhibitions at the Main Street gallery in Lakeport, and in Upper Lake.

We don't have the exact date she started her radio shows on KPFZ, but she covered a wide range of music, including an introduction to  Classical music, and a series of interviews with modern composers.
