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, or you can join a Zoom meeting  (which will be melded with the studio).

The studio line is 707-263-3435

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.
