Arnie Arnesen and Steffen Schmidt Raise Funds for KHOI May1

May 3, 2012 - 11:02am -- andy.tang


Arnie Arnesen, "Ms.Polical Chowder"and "Dr. Politics" Steffen Schmidt faced off on the hot topics of the day at a fundraiser held for KHOI on May 1 at the Ames Society for the arts. Approximatley 130 KHOI supporters came out for dinner and discussion. Schmidt and Arnesen agreed, by popular demand, to air a program to be broadcast simultaneously on KHOI and WNHN - Arnesen's station in Concord, New Hampshire - that will feature their political commentary and dialogue, similar to "Politics Day," their former program on Iowa Public Radio. To date, $8,650.00 were raised. Some additional funds are coming in the mail as a result of the fund raiser. We hope the letters keep coming as we approach our $10,000 goal for this event! 

In an interview with the Ames Tribune, Arnesen spoke about the value of community radio to our local area: "A Community radio... is a place where you can pull more ideas out and...the difference is we have the time..."

KHOI transmitter shed

Our deadline for getting KHOI on the air is August 18 2012. That means that within exactly one half year, we must literally be on the air - you will be hearing the sound of community radio when you turn on the radio and go to 89.1FM!

First, we are addressing the most fundamental equipment for getting on the air: our Radio Transmitter at the base of our transmitting tower (just east of I-35 near Story City).

Poison Control Center Rocks the Pantorium

January 7, 2012 - 12:00am -- steph

If the Ames Pantorium building had any doubts left over, as to whether it still was a dry-cleaner, it now knows  that it is no longer. It was notified on January 7 that it is a cultural venue and community center - and the steam on the windows now is not made by steam machines but by dancing people.

Poison Control Center, Christopher the Conqueror, and Kate Kennedy completely rocked the house and re-arranged the energy during Pandemonium at the Pantorium concert, one of KHOI's two monthly signature events.
