What's Happening in JANUARY 2020

January General Meeting: “Turn Up the Radio!” --- Hal Chiprin

Charlie Busch, our own “voice of radio” here in the Kern River Valley, will be the presenter at this month's General Membership Meeting. Charlie will cover a host of topics you may have wondered about on radio broadcasting such as: a brief history of how and when radio began; the remarkable changes in technology for broadcasters; the role of radio stations serving their community; how radio gets from the studio to you; how broadcasters meet the costs of operation, keeping local radio free to you; looking back on previous owners of the current Kern Valley stations; and the outlook regarding the future of local radio. Charlie will give us plenty of time to ask questions. He’s a great guy, and we are happy to have him!

Don’t miss it on Tuesday, January 28, 7:00 PM at the Senior Center in Lake Isabella, just past the Dam Corner. Non-members always welcome! Refreshments served after the meeting.
