Hello, Friends of Kaslo! Well, it’s that time of year again — canning all that fruit’s in full swing, the smell of burning leaves lends an unmistakable only-in-autumn pungency to the crisp morning air — and a new season of original radio begins in our neck of the woods.

Radio Free Kaslo’s web presence has now officially moved to the Kaslo Institute website, as we slowly but steadily march toward the day when the Institute launches 7-day-a-week radio programming — what is currently a weekly, 30-minute program will morph into a full-blown station, with lots of shows, lots of hosts, great music (much of it featuring local and regional talent) and tons of local information, news, and viewpoints. At least initially, Radio Free Kaslo, the Station, will be web-based — a live streaming station available to anyone on the planet with an internet connection. Eventually we might also go for a standard broadcast license, but that’s well down the road.

In the meantime, consider the exciting possibility of hosting your own program! Come on, admit it — you have plenty on your mind, and here’s a fantastic opportunity to share all that pent-up wit & wisdom with your friends & neighbours and a breathless planet! Just drop me a line and let me know your programming suggestions (email me at: randy@netidea.com).

I’ve also attached a slightly fuzzy image of the nice article on the Kaslo Institute written by the Valley Voice’s Art Joyce that appeared in the October 2nd edition of the paper. When the digital edition is available, I’ll update to that version, but I wanted you to see this as soon as possible. It’s very important that we get out there and explain why the Institute’s important to our collective future as often, and in as many ways as possible. Articles like this help.

Have a fun Friday, and enjoy the weekend!
