KTWH volunteer John Bathke interviews Katya about this year’s Sea Change adventure on Lake Superior. They talked not long before Katya left Knife River with her family and four interns to do climate change education while circumnavigating the lake in their sail boat. (Pictured are Katya and Mark Gordon, in their element)
On May 5, 2015, Big Dave Anderson of Brimson recorded his program demo (The Beat Farm) with guest musician and friend Kelly Lusk at KTWH’s studio – becoming the first person to actually record anything in the new studio – a landmark day for Two Harbors Community Radio!
Arna being coached by our engineer Bruce Holmen.
Get an idea of what to expect from KTWH from Arna’s program demo recorded May 8, 2015:
Tom calls himself our Chief Sawdust Maker, among many other things. Here he reads to us from Politically Correct Bedtime Stories.
Work on the studio continues as we progress toward on air broadcast this summer.
Wires are getting connected…
Equipment is being set up…
And volunteers are trying it out !
Stay tuned for information on the installation of the antenna, coming soon!
When was the last time you heard yourself on the radio?
For most of us it’s been a while, if ever. But Two Harbors’ own KTWH radio station is offering an opportunity for all of us to record their station identification that is required by the FCC at the top of each broadcast hour.
Saturday May 9, from 10am to 3pm, representatives of KTWH will be greeting you at the entry to Super One and inviting you to record the station ID together with your name and any other greetings of your choice (within FCC guidelines of course!) It will also be a chance to learn more about the station and its volunteers. Donations to the station are always welcome and earn a KTWH mug and/or bumper sticker premium, but a donation is not required to make a recording.
Once the station gets on the air this late spring or early summer we’ll be hearing our neighbors and ourselves regularly with each station ID as well as many of us doing our own programs. This would be a great time to submit a program idea or your own program proposal. Information is available at ktwh.org/programs or by writing THCommRadio@gmail.com, calling 834-2247, dropping a note to PO Box 622, TH 55616, or stopping by our studio/office in the Harbor Landing Building.
Meanwhile you can practice the legal station ID: “You are listening to KTWH-LP in Two Harbors, Minnesota”. “LP?” you ask? LP is for low power – KTWH will be broadcasting at 100 watts on 99.5FM.
