Design for Social Change, Airport Fly-in, Community Radio

Hosts: Kay Puttock and Susan Franzen

This show, the first Local Talk program of KHOI's historic 2017 Spring Fund Drive, features segments of a long interview with station manager Ursula Ruedenberg on the history, purpose, and philosophy of community radio in this country and nationwide.

Also featured: an interview with two members of ISU's Flying Cyclones about the Fly-in Breakfast held last Saturday at the Ames Municipal Airport. Small aircraft from around the state and the country flew in to celebrate the opening of a new airport hangar and new terminal.

Steve Kohtz, a graduate student in ISU's College of Design, talks about the project of a new graduate class called Design for Social Change. Log on to the project's special website to learn how you too can help build community by focusing on nicknames--your own and other people's.

Regular monthly guest Keith Morgan chats with the show's hosts about their own approaches to communication technology for local disasters, and brings us up-to-date on this important aspect of disaster preparedness.
